The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) (see top IoT devices here) means more software systems are operating in numerous different environments. This places a challenge for the testing teams to ensure the right level of test coverage. Indeed, the lack of test environments and data is a top challenge when applying to test in agile projects.
We will see growth in offering and using cloud-based and containerized test environments. The application of AI/ML to generate test data and the growth of data projects are some solutions for the lack of test data.
