Code Review is the Best Way to Improve Software Quality According to Global Survey

“State of Code Review 2017” Survey by SmartBear Shows How Organizations Are Developing and Maintaining the Quality of Software

SOMERVILLE, Mass. – May 18, 2017 – SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, released the results of its latest industry survey in the report, “The State of Code Review 2017: Trends & Insights into Dev Collaboration.” The survey was designed to establish benchmarks for the software industry concerning the ways in which organizations are developing and maintaining the quality of software today.

The percentage of respondents citing code review as the best way to improve software quality nearly doubled between 2016 and 2017, with code review continuing to be the No. 1 way to improve quality. Nearly three-quarters of respondents are doing code review using a combination of methods, including ad-hoc processes, meetings and tool-based reviews.

“With software code driving competitive advantage in numerous products and processes across industries, organizations of all types and sizes view software quality as a top priority,” said Ryan Lloyd, Vice President of Products, Test and Development at SmartBear. “While code review continues to be the No.1 way to improve software quality, there are significant challenges to implementing this best practice such as heavy workloads, time constraints and lack of manpower. Selecting the right tools can make all the difference in code review and meeting whatever an organization’s key business drivers are – improving code quality, product safety and regulatory compliance.”

Only six out of every 10 individuals surveyed say that their organizations are using a tool to help with code review. In addition, the survey has uncovered that the use of a code review tool enables daily code review 30 percent more frequently when compared with other review methods.

SmartBear conducted the global online survey for four weeks during December 2016 and January 2017. The findings are based on aggregated responses from more than 550 software developers, testers, IT/operations professionals and business leaders from more than 30 industries. The report covers perceptions surrounding code quality, approaches to code review, code review tools and decision making as well as software development tools methodology.

S’pore-based QAssure launches crowd-testing software service

AS more services go into the cloud and use open-source software and services, Singapore-based QAssure Technologies (QAssure) is offering enterprises a cloud-based and crowd-sourced platform which offers crucial testing of software code that is done much faster and at a lower cost.

Durairaj Dhanasekaran, group CEO of QAssure, told The Business Times that the company’s QA TestBox platform helps firms test applications and software through a community of expert testers with “extensive training, domain knowledge as well as experience in legacy and current platforms, automation suites and tools”.

He noted that this mode of testing results in “high quality and accurate testing results”. With an “extensive pool of testers from different parts of the globe and across different time zones”, the duration of the entire testing process can be significantly reduced, Mr Dhanasekaran noted, adding this “allows results to be delivered as quickly as the next day”.
“QA TestBox’s unique feature is that it offers an extremely safe and secure testing environment.”

According to analysts, crowd-sourcing is emerging as the new online distributed problem-solving and production model for enterprises to access a scalable workforce.

Research agency Gartner noted that the potential benefits of crowd-testing include getting speedy access to skilled resources of chosen demographics that would test in any chosen location, with their own devices and at attractive rates.

Headquartered in Singapore, QAssure, set up in 2005, has a presence in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, India and the United States.

Mr Dhanasekaran said the company focuses on the entire spectrum of specialised testing services like functional automation, performance, digital and security testing for banking, insurance, telecom, education and public services domains. The services most frequently employed by its clients are performance, functional, test automation and security testing for newly developed software and services.

“Using QA TestBox, businesses can also reduce staffing costs as there is a lesser need to hire an in-house testing team. Businesses can then reallocate the fixed cost savings to the development of applications or software, resulting in an even higher return on investment,” Mr Dhanasekaran explained.

According to Gartner, the key risks associated with crowd-testing include security and intellectual property ownership considerations as well as the governance involved in managing the crowd.

On this point Mr Dhanasekaran said companies such as financial service institutions require a high level of security and have complex testing needs. “To address this need, QA TestBox uses a fully secured cloud-based sandbox – a virtual space to test software or code securely – for designated crowd-testers.”

According to him, QAssure ensures the security of the platform by thoroughly vetting domain-specific testers. “They are evaluated and certified through our stringent tests and background checks. Testers’ access is also discontinued once each testing process is completed.”

The QA TestBox platform operates on a fully secured cloud-based Citrix sandbox environment supported by Microsoft Azure. “This allows close monitoring of all our remote testers and ensures the data is entirely secured. Testers are also unable to extract any information from the platform, maintaining data security.”

Mr Dhanasekaran observed that, depending on their testing requirements, customers can choose between two models – self and managed services.

“Ideally suited for customers who have clarity on what they are looking for, the self-service model allows for a well-defined testing duration with a set number of testers at a fixed cost. Available in monthly, bimonthly and quarterly packages, the self-service packages are cost-effective and ensure products are market-ready on time.”

He added that the managed service model provided a “transformational approach with the appropriate test organisation and processes”.

“Offering fully customised services through a virtual cloud-based set-up, customers can achieve high-quality test assurance without incurring large overhead costs, and without losing overall control. Experienced project and delivery managers will ensure that testing solutions are tailored to the customer’s requirements to meet business goals and objectives,” he explained.

According to Mr Dhanasekaran, in the month or so that QA TestBox has been launched, the company has received “great interest from clients” in exploring the use of the different testing services offered.

“In particular, we have seen keen interest for functional, performance and security testing services for applications and software. As for industries, there has been notable traction from the fintech space – mostly for functional and security testing.

“With the rise of the gig economy, there has been significant growth in non-traditional services including crowd-testing. According to Gartner, 20 per cent of all enterprise application development will be conducted through crowd-sourcing by 2018,” he said.
The gig economy refers to a labour market characterised by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work as opposed to permanent jobs.

Mobile TV Market – Global Industry Analysis

The increasing usage of smartphones and tablets around the globe has led to a significant growth in the mobile TV market. Internet usership has risen to an estimated 3.4 billion with a penetration rate of more than 46% in 2016. This has remarkably improved the state of the mobile TV market.

The global mobile TV market is projected to witness steady growth during the forecast period owing to the rising availability of high-speed data services such as 3G, 4G, and 5G. The global revenue stood at US$7.69 bn in 2015 and is expected to reach US$17.02 bn by 2024 at a strong CAGR of 9.5% therein, according to the findings of Transparency Market Research’s report.

Growing Demand for VoD Services Drives Pay TV Segment

The services offered by players in the mobile TV market include free to air services and pay TV services. Pay TV services held the leading share in the mobile TV market in 2015, accounting for more than half the global market that year. The growing demand for premium content such as live sports, movies, and entertainment through video on demand (VoD) on local and regional channels has resulted in the growth of the pay TV service segment. The share of the pay TV service segment is likely to increase during the course of the forecast period.

The free to air service segment of the mobile TV market is expected witness a decline in market share by 2024 due to growing consumer preference for premium video content or TV channels.

Surge in Mobile Penetration Offers Asia Pacific Mobile TV Market Significant Boost

The mobile TV market is segmented into five geographical regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Asia Pacific held the leading share in the mobile TV market in 2015 and the market in this region is projected to further expand during the forecast period based on revenue and market share. This can be attributed to the significant rise in smartphone penetration, an increase in investments in mobile networks, and surging mobile data subscriptions in the region. In Asia Pacific, the pay TV service segment accounted for more than half the market in 2015 and its share is expected to increase during the forecast period. The adoption of free to air service is growing among users in Asia Pacific due to the rising number of TV-enabled mobile handsets.

The increase in investments in LTE networks and the growing economic strength of emerging countries are expected to be the key factors driving the uptake of mobile TV in Latin America as well as MEA. Transparency Market Research finds that the adoption of mobile TV in Latin America was led by Brazil in 2015. With growing expenditure on entertainment, other countries in the region such as Argentina and Mexico are projected to see significant growth in the adoption of mobile TV services in the coming years.

In the MEA region, South Africa and countries within the GCC were the leading adopters of mobile TV services in 2015. The growth of the mobile TV market in MEA is driven by the entry of new players as well as global companies offering regional content to attract new customers.

Some of the key players in the mobile TV market are AT&T, Inc., Comcast Corporation, MobiTV, Inc, Sky plc, Charter Communications, Verizon Communications, Inc, Bell Canada, Orange S.A, Bharti Airtel, and Consolidated Communications.
