I've done a little research and came up with two links that offer some insight in this $34B industry!
http://www.thinksys.com/blog/software-testing-trends-that-will-rock-2016/, which says that "the role of Automation is to support the testers and not to replace them. " That article also states that "Nelson Hall predicts that by 2017, the software testing market size will be $34 Billion." And https://www.quora.com/What-is-latest-technology-trends-in-Software-testing, which mentions: "Independent Software testing (trending): With increased focus on QA, many businesses are relying on specialist QA organizations to provide testing services. This is largely due to the expertise that specialist QA organizations bring to the table, including TCoE capability. Hence partnering with them helps the business to circumvent the pain of finding skilled QA resources and setting up a mature QA, both in terms of process and technology."
I was hoping you might be able to provide some direction on creating decision tables. There are about 11 different promotions and each promotion triggers a different set of actions such as a discount on a Basic membership, or a discount on a Plus membership
How do I determine if I should include other conditions? For example, we have 4 different rate types (Senior, Regular, Employee and Honorary) that get applied BEFORE the promotions are calculated and can result in different charges for our memberships. I am just not sure if rate type should be a separate decision table, or an additional condition in the Promotions decision table?
With Technology disruptions happening in fast pace, testing gets embeded as part of the development and testing as a phase may not exist, so what is the futuer of testing professionals after 10 years from now. What is the future ?
