This brings out ’Software Tester 2.0′ model which defines the evolving role of a software tester in the era of Complexity, Digitalization (IoT, AI, AR/VR), Agility and User Centricity.
In this challenging era, customer needs are also changing rapidly. Therefore, companies should change the way they think, the way they initiate and manage the change in their organizations. They need to adapt to change, focus on strategy, value and innovation. For this reason, the role of Software Tester stands at the heart of the future success for companies. For the last few decades, software testing is one of the fastest growing market instruments in the IT world, so as test automation. As more and more complex applications go into production; traditional software testing approaches failed to fulfill the needs, consequently organizations are looking for smart and easy solutions to address their testing requirements, especially in the new era of Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and User Experience (UX).
