Around the beginning of the year, I was asked my thoughts on overarching trends in DevOps for 2022. Some of the things I mentioned include AI, the shift-left/shift-right in test, more scrutiny in security, and the evolving need for simultaneous quality and speed you have likely read about on our blog and other publications that cover the DevOps space. However, the trend I mentioned that I have seen the most momentum behind as of late has been the need for accessibility.

The digital experience is now primary to our everyday lives. Our recent consumer report, Every Experience Matters, dove into quality and how it affects consumer behavior.

Today marks the ending of our series ‘Every Experience Matters: Stat of the Week.’ Over the past few weeks we have stressed how mobile app bugs negatively impact a company’s bottom line. This can come in the form of cart abandonment, negative reviews or even user churn. We may have saved the best for last though because today we are diving into the world of accessibility and the tremendous opportunity that brands are fumbling when attempting to appeal to a wider audience.

In this white paper, we will explore how analytics and insights can bring a level of control and visibility by presenting test data in a meaningful and actionable way. We are in the age of continuous testing. Using automation at scale, teams are testing more often throughout the software development lifecycle. But as testing volume grows, how do you know its impact on your ability to deliver quality software faster? Do you know where automation adds value, and where it might be creating risk? How do you best optimize your testing efforts to ensure the maximum return on investment?
