Five Steps to Smart IoT Testing
DevOps teams need to be able to deliver smart testing in an Internet of Things world, in order to ensure that the digital experience delights.
May 21, 2018—
Internet of Things (IoT) systems have become increasingly complex, with many including a vast array of apps, data systems and devices. This new hyper-connected world has created a diverse and ever-changing landscape for testing and DevOps teams, that many are struggling to navigate.
Testing and test-automation have not evolved much throughout the last 20 years and are still stuck in the dark ages. This is why most teams cannot keep up with the demands of users, DevOps, device fragmentation or technology evolution. So what do teams need to do in this new dynamic world? Below are five steps that DevOps and testing teams must take to deliver smart testing in an IoT-driven world.
Teams need to re-orientate from focusing on the code to the product and the actual user experience. With the IoT, products and services are composed of technologies from a range of vendors, and user experiences thus comprise products from an array of vendors, and the actual user experience is critical to adoption.
So if you only test the code you write, you're probably only testing 5 percent of what's impacting the user experience, you're hoping that everything else just magically works together, and so things are going to go wrong. Therefore, you have to move from testing the code, as smart IoT only magnifies the gap between testing code and testing the product testing is no longer a compliance function.
