Software Testing News Nov 2021
It’s December and time to look back on some key testing updates from the previous month. Software Testing News Nov 2021 looks at a UK start-up which has raised a huge sum to deploy automated software testing. Police in the UK are to introduce algorithmic technology without the proper resources to test. Then finally you can read about changes forecasted for software development in 2022.
Virtuoso raises $13.3M to automate software testing
The UK-based software testing start-up has raised a Series A round led by Paladin Capital. According to Tech Crunch, Virtuoso claims that QA teams can identify software bugs much quicker than via manual processes. The piece then points out that software testing automation market is projected to grow to $28.8 billion in 2024. This is up from $12.6 billion in 2019, as reported by Global Market Insights.
UK police to adopt new algorithmic tech without testing
Another story from Software Testing News is this one on what is a controversial move. Without the proper resources, police forces in England and Wales are to introduce new algorithmic technologies. They will surely struggle given their lack of ability to properly evaluate deployments. There are fears too that they will not receive training on how to operate the new systems.
Software development changing in 2022
This piece from softwaretestingnews.co.uk describes how the software development process will differ next year. Remote working is now a fixture for so many of us. For developers, it presents something of a difficulty in terms of running local development environments. Historically, software developers have wasted a lot of time trying to get applications on local computers. Businesses will therefore require ‘a pipeline of software-enabled functionality’. A reliable and rapid delivery will be necessary which does not place a burden on software teams.
