Capgemini, Sogeti and HP Entreprise released the new World Quality Report 2016 giving a global outlook and analysing the quality level of apps, test methods and trends in different fields. Based on more than 1600 interviews, in 32 countries, the study underlined the lack of resources dedicated in IoT projects for quality and testing. To enhance competitiveness and rise added-value for their customers, 85% of companies integrated the IoT in their information technology strategy. However, in the meantime, 68% of them don’t build up an appropriate testing strategy.
