Testing in the digital age

Testing in the digital age

Testing in the digital age brings a new vision on test engineering, using new quality attributes that tackle intelligent machines and a roadmap split up in five hops. With everything digital there are more possibilities for test automation and piles of (test) data growing out of control. Working together with robots (cobotics), using artificial intelligence in testing and eventually predict the occurrence of defects brings your testing to the digital age.

TMap NEXT® in scrum

TMap NEXT® in scrum

How do you do that? In this book, we demonstrate how TMap can be integrated with the scrum approach to form one integrated agile approach. Experience has taught us that testing is not only an extremely important activity in a scrum approach. It has also stimulated our view that testing should be fully integrated in this approach in order to be as agile as possible.


TMap | Infrastructure

ICT infrastructure is the fundament of ICT. It is high time that the world of infrastructure professionalizes the tasks and activities, work in a more structured manner and, above all, start aiming at realizing the appropriate quality of our ICT infrastructure. TMap | Infrastructure should be regarded as a particularization of TMap NEXT®, specifically geared to the professional domain of infrastructure. After all, the realm of ICT infrastructure is a creative one in which structure must be applied in the right way to obtain success.

But also, if you are already on the way to improving your testing process, a close look at Business Driven TPI will help you focus even more on the goal of improving your testing process, namely bringing business value to your organization!

Cloud testing

Testing on the Cloud (whitepaper)

This paper looks at how testing can be revolutionized through the evolving Testing Cloud models, outlines the potential benefits and evaluates the challenges, the services being developed and provides an outlook for Cloud Testing.

Testing Clouds

TMap NEXT® Testing Clouds

The cloud is a business model or platform on which testing must be carried out just like any other service. It enables convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. It is not only an IT opportunity, but a strategic business opportunity; it creates the ability to get the business in charge of IT and change from Information Technology (IT) to Business Technology (BT). And as the Cloud Era emerges, testing will change! Not only for information systems, but also for testing the infrastructure, cloud-enabled applications, and the ability to have instant deployable test infrastructure.

TMap NEXT® - End-to-end testing

TMap NEXT® - End-to-end testing

Chains are becoming longer and more complex all the time. The chance of faults keeps increasing while the importance of the chain's product grows. Testing chains is one of the ways to ensure the controllability of these risks. This book describes a total approach for end-to-end testing that takes the growing scope and complexity of chains into account.


TMap NEXT® - BDTM (business driven test management)
