Quality can be elusive, as elusive as the reasoning for why the letter “q” exists at all when “kw” would do just fine. In a slideshow for CIO Insight, Dennis McCafferty shares data from Capgemini/Sogeti and HP about where CIOs stand with quality assurance (QA) and testing. Out of this research conducted with roughly 1600 executives, here are some kwick highlights:
- Enhancing security (65 percent) and gaining higher-quality software solutions (44 percent) are leading QA and testing objectives among respondents.
- The right processes and methods to test mobile/multi-channel apps do not exist in 48 percent of organizations.
- Companies have difficulty designing test cases for customer experience with multi-channel apps 36 percent of the time, which is an improvement of 5 percent from last year.
- Forty-three percent of organizations believe app development comes with too many design complexities.
