“Automated Testing: The Glue That Holds DevOps Together” to learn about the key role automated testing plays in a DevOps workflow, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.

The realm of software testing is changing — and so, too, is the role of the software tester. Testers are under tremendous pressure to release applications more quickly, and companies are pushing testers to make changes in their mindset, from skillsets to coding, to understanding how the business functions and dealing with customers. Testers must evolve.

Technology has given software testers the ability to track, quantify, and optimize processes at new levels. The modern day software tester has come to dominate this new arena.

We have put together the infographic below to help highlight what distinguishes a modern tester from a traditional, and the advantage of being able to perform many different types of tests and having the skills and tools to look at the large business picture beyond the testing team.
