The wide gamut of IP aware and addressable technology known as the Internet of Things (IoT) is embedded deeply into our professional and personal lives. McKinsey Global Institute suggests that the financial impact of IoT on the global economy may be as much as $3.9 to $12.6 trillion by 2025. With the rise in the number of connected devices, comes challenges that are faced by the product development teams who build these devices.
When it comes to the development of the IoT systems, product teams constantly face some common encounters that occur anywhere from start to the end of the development process. These scenarios have to be foreseen or anticipated beforehand and possible solutions should be sought in order to solve them. Quality Engineering (QE) is key to ensuring that these IoT devices work accurately for the intended environment.
This white paper will elaborate the following key parameters
Overcoming these parameters will help in building stable and quality IoT products. A well-structured requirement, a proper test plan, unit testing, and integration testing can help in thoroughly testing the IoT devices and supported infrastructure and allowing them to thrive in a connected environment. Most testing is done based on the device perspective, but in the future, we can see changes in testing as more human-centric testing procedures may be included in the testing cycle.
Though the influence of IoT is already evident across different verticals and emerging markets will witness the rapid growth in coming years. This white paper captures the aspects of IoT that are relevant to QE organizations. Further, it elaborates the paradigm shift required in QE to embrace the achieving high-quality IoT solutions.
