Every year ahead of us, we witness something new in mobile app testing landscape. Indeed, this year unfolds new technological advancements, changes and innovations which will together reshape the current scenario of Quality Assurance or QA. It is important that we keep up with the most emerging trends like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), Facial Recognition and beyond that will surely going to take centre stage in 2020.
So let’s delve into some key upcoming mobile app testing trends as we usher in the New Year 2020. Here’s what you need to know:
1. The rise of Intelligent Automation – AI & ML
As reported in Forbes, “29% of global developers (manager level or higher) have worked on AI/machine learning (ML) software in the past year.” Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence has gained huge popularity in the year 2019 and will continue to be “The Superstars” on the radar in 2020.
To a large extent, AI and ML will transform mobile app testing in meaningful ways, while minimizing cost and errors at the same time. Their ability to adapt faster, operate more efficiently, bug detection, interact with applications under tests (AUT) and predictive analytics is expected to take intelligent automation testing at another level of maturity in 2020.
Experts predict a successful implementation of ML/AL will rise to achieve the maximum accuracy in QA processes, however, agile teams will not eliminate manual testing.
2. Big Data Testing will receive greater attention
2020 will be the year of Big Data Testing trustability. As 2019 has already witnessed a growing inclination on Big Data ethics to deal with huge data volumes and diverse data types. Indeed, this year Big data testing will no longer be seen as a foreign idea and is expected to see a new rise.
3. Now is the time for QAOps
Quality Assurance Operations or QAOps is going to be the biggest transformation in systems development life cycle (SDLC). In 2014, the Facebook team gave thumbs up to QAOps adoption for a smooth migration process for Facebook Graph API version 2.0 and enforce Login Review across 5,000 apps in a single month.
Later, QAOps has been applied by giant tech companies as well as medium and small teams to address critical problems and it gained a successful consideration by QA engineers, developers, and IT Ops engineers for its obvious benefits.
Putting QAOps into action not only simplify the mobile app testing process by integrating testing into the Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment(CD) pipeline, but operationalizing QAOps increases the collaboration between the QA engineers and developers from an internal (implementing the right internal processes) and external (quality control) standpoint in a more effective way.
4. IOT in Test Automation getting mainstream
The ‘Internet of Things’ is one of the most critical Mobile app testing trends for 2020 will transform mobile app testing for the better. Numerous industry studies and reports revealed that the number of smart devices will increase to 20.8 billion in 2020.
Just like every other segment and domain, 2020 looks to be an active year ahead with the above-listed Mobile App Testing Trends to watch out in 2020. So what are you waiting for? Buckle up to become more agile towards upcoming transformations and significant progress on the fronts of mobile app testing landscapes.
