In a competitive environment, where business success often hinges on application success, enterprises have to deliver their products and solutions to the market faster in order to stay competitive and relevant. This requires them to adopt Agile and DevOps models, in which testing is often tightly integrated into the application delivery model. The Quality Assurance (QA) function is witnessing transition to an integrated model in a digital environment, where technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation will thrive.

Service providers are strengthening their capabilities to deliver end-to-end assurance to their clients. They are investing in next-generation technologies to stay ahead of the adoption curve and challenge the traditional models of independent testing.
