Parasoft Presents: QA for the Internet of Things

In this presentation we will discuss the unique challenges for testing the Internet of Things (IoT).

The term IoT refers to a system of network-enabled devices, components, or services that publish and/or consume data.

Testing in an IoT environment requires a broad system level approach.  IoT solutions may span multiple layers of the connected solution.  An action initiated at a low-level embedded sensor implemented with C language can trigger messages that are propagated via a middleware in Java to the back-end--which may be implemented with .NET or Java.  All of these layers form a single functional chain, which is only as reliable as the weakest link. 

Delivering a high-quality reliable and secure system requires testing capabilities at every layer: the low-level layer in C code, the API or SOA testing layer, and the hard-to-access back-end part of the solution.

We will describe some important approaches to solving this complex testing challenge.
