Gartner® report: Optimize Application Testing Quality and Speed With Embedded Intelligent Automation (IA) Services

According to Gartner, "Sourcing, procurement and vendor management leaders (SPVM) who wish to optimize the quality and speed of application testing as part of their IT services and solutions strategy and selection should:

  • Increase application testing agility by working with application leaders to explore IA use cases, such as test optimization, defect prediction, model-based testing, test data generation and test insights.
  • Optimize the costs of application testing services by asking the evaluation questions provided. Require service providers to document how they will incorporate IA into application testing services, for both new proposals and existing contracts.
  • Evaluate the IA strategies of your application service providers by holding biannual vendor briefings to understand their IA investment strategies and the partnerships and tools they are working with. Initiate a proof of concept (POC) where there is opportunity for the providers to test their investments for a win-win outcome."
