Software testing services have always been a key part of development Industries, & with time, their value has increased. From detecting the unspecified development errors to testing the feasibility & possible threats to the project, software testing has come a long way!

Many companies today have transformed their testing process from manual to automated, to reduce manual tasks and save their resources. But, what does the future holds for software testing service? Will it rise the way it has been during recent years, or will it have stable growth? If you are someone eagerly waiting for answers to these questions, then you are certainly at the right place!

In today’s article, we will be talking about the top five software testing trends that will play a Crucial Role in the year 2021. So, without wasting your time, let’s get to begin!

Top Trends in Software Testing in 2021

1. Utilizing AI and ML

In today’s digital world, AI & ML have become great aspects of the global industries. AI, to be specific, has completely revolutionized many of the leading sectors of the market, so why would software testing lag behind! Here’s how artificial intelligence is all set to transform the testing sector!

· Smart AI tools use QA teams to speed up the testing process by implementing them to design tests from scratch with little-to-no human administration.

· QA teams can even raise the scope of testing with the help of AI tools.

· ML, on the other hand, will devolve more rapidly & will certainly detect any major threats and challenges in the application based on user behavior.

· Last but not least, AI tools could be used by the QA teams to easily identify and track errors much faster.

2. Testing Automation

Another great aspect that is all set to change the software testing sector is automated testing. Though automated testing is not a new word, it is slowly emerging in the global market. More companies today are acquiring automated testing strategies to get accurate & quick results with fewer resources.

Additionally, many experts believe that the automated testing market will rise in the coming years & will empower the QA teams to deliver error-free & efficient applications at less cost and with fewer resources. However, testing automation won’t remove manual testing procedures completely. That’s because if you automate the wrong procedure, that could lead to even bigger problems.

Hence the software testing trend in 2021 would not only be automated testing but a balance between automated & manual testing processes.

3. Low-Code Development

It has no surprise that it takes a lot of hard work & time for the developers & testers to begin a software or mobile application. However, things have changed significantly in 2020. Today, the popular industries are demanding low-code development to make the solutions faster & at less cost. Though the development part has already initiated with this approach, the software testing sector is yet to start!

But, in the coming years, we will be surely witnessing some important changes in the software testing methods because of the low-code or even no-code software development. Though the concept is still not very famous, the possibilities cannot be discarded! Hence this can be expressed as a leading software testing trend.

4. Creation of TCoE

TCoE stands for Testing Centres of Excellence. These types of centers especially work on developing some standards & reusable testing forms that every global software engineering industry must follow.

However, despite its great importance, we haven’t seen the utilization of this approach to the full extent yet. But, once again, the experts anticipate that TCoE will be a reality in the year 2021.

Beyond the common standards, TCoE will also help the businesses to:

· reduce testing time without losing quality

· lay the groundwork for efficient testing automation

· adjust the company’s quality assurance framework

5. QAOps

A popular approach that started right after DevOps is QAOps! QAOps or sometimes referred to as DevTestOps is a mixture of Quality Assurance (QA) & IT Operations (Ops).

With QAOps, the businesses can enhance the collaboration between test engineers & developers by integrating QA tasks into the Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline. Moreover, it also guarantees quick development of the applications & a productive software testing approach.

Already most of the companies are following the DevOps process. Hence, QAOps will absolutely become the next big software testing trend in the coming days.


To conclude, we can say that the software testing industry will witness many high-end changes in the coming year. Testing has always been the most important aspect of the development industry. However, the coming year will give much-awaited acceleration to the testing sector.
