Why do you need certification in connected devices testing?

Connected devices surround you. While your mobile phone is the most obvious connected device, there are dozens of connected devices that are part of your daily life, ranging from refrigerators to tiny humidity detectors to automobiles. Anything that is capable of supporting an Internet enabled component is part of the Internet of Things (IoT) and needs the quality assurance that comes with connected devices testing.

The Importance of Connected Devices Testing

Why is the testing of connected devices so important? This webinar describes connected devices testing, its ever-growing need, and its importance for employers – and your career.

This is a great introduction to:

  • Testing in the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Mobile device testing
  • Mobile app testing
  • Testing of those many devices in your house, workplace, and environment that are communicating with each other

Who Needs AT*SQA Connected Devices Testing?

Everyone who participates in creating quality connected devices, mobile devices and applications, or IoT software should have AT*SQA Connected Devices Testing certification. The quality of connected device hardware and software is the responsibility of everyone who is part of the team, not just those with titles such as Software Tester or QA Analyst.

The roles include everyone who is involved in making the software and hardware before it reaches production, not just full-time testers, which includes:

  • Product managers
  • Business analysts
  • Product owners
  • Quality assurance testers
  • Software engineers
  • Agile teams
  • Usability consultants

Connected Devices testing requires diverse skillsets, perspectives, experiences and roles, and AT*SQA Connected Devices Testing certification is designed for all members of your team.
