The Impact of the IoT: What’s in Store for Testing

Add to calendar

No longer just a futuristic concept, the internet of things (IoT) has a strong presence in our world. If your business is not prepared for it, you’re already behind. With the proliferation of connected “things”—devices, appliances, cars, and even clothes—Jennifer Bonine says that the stage is set and IoT mobile apps are here to stay. Testers are now being asked to test on more complex devices and more advanced platforms, so they must keep up with the demand for new skills, new strategies, and an entirely new set of knowledge for testing IoT apps. Jennifer will review where we are today and explore the challenges that IoT and increased complexity pose to our testing profession. See what tools are available to aid mobile IoT testing, discuss what to consider and plan for, hear how other organizations are preparing, and learn the new skills testers need.
