The State of POS Testing: Winning the Battle of Speed Versus Quality

Software engineering teams and QA leaders face an impossible decision. 

On the one hand, they prioritize velocity, releasing software to meet market demands at breakneck speed while running the risk of overlooking bugs, which results in disappointed customers. On the other, they could opt for thorough testing, which can slow release cycles and potentially surrender competitive advantage. 

However, as the" Human Versus Machine: The State of POS Testing" report makes clear, this quandary becomes more pronounced as 72% of retail QA leaders continue using manual testing methods. The increasing demand for faster releases seems at odds with manual testing, which is notorious for creating bottlenecks and slowing down the entire release process. 

This contradiction begs the question, why does manual testing persist when most senior decision-makers favor speed over quality? 

Join our webinar, where our experts will delve into the challenges and explore critical insights from Keysight's latest industry report, "Human Versus Machine: The State of POS Testing.
