Our Summary of WQR findings

While organizations continue to invest significantly in testing & QA, it is still apparent based on this year’s findings and previous years (please refer 2016, 2017) that most organizations continue to struggle with the more complex aspect of Test Operations (Test Environments & Data Management).

On the upside however, the release of the report does indicate an ongoing elevation of awareness which will hopefully result in a change to behaviour, WQR trends (in future editions) and ultimately investment in tooling and enterprise outcomes.
