This Month's Meeting

Testing the Internet of Things
Embedded software - now being referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT) - continues to permeate almost every industry - from household appliances to heart monitors. It is estimated that there are at least a million lines of code in the average car. As IoT explodes from millions of devices to tens of billions in the next few years, new challenges will emerge for software testing. Security, privacy, complexity, and competing standards will fuel the need for innovative testing. Customers don't care why your software failed in the connected chain - only that it did fail. Companies that focus on quality will ultimately be the successful brands. Learn what new approaches are required for testing the "zoo" of interconnected devices. As products increasingly connect physical hardware with applications, we must revisit old testing approaches. IoT is about analyzing data in real time, allowing testers to make quicker and more informed decisions. If IoT testing is in your future, this session is for you.
