Cloud-based automated testing environments replicate real-world use cases to help companies better simulate user scenarios at scales which is not possible in other testing environments. The process accelerates go-to-market initiatives and improves user experience.
As with any technology, cloud-based testing continually evolves, presenting users with new opportunities and challenges. What conditions, trends, or risks can we confidently associate with future cloud-based testing environments?
To address the cloud-based testing of the future, it’s important to consider the issues we face today, as many of these challenges are likely to persist.
Strategic thinking about cloud-based testing of the future must address familiar issues, such as:
- Migration complexities
- Dependency on Internet connectivity
- Data transfer and storage costs
- Supplier selection and potential lock-in
- Security, compliance and data privacy
- Integration with existing systems
