This IDC Survey illustrates buyer interests and priorities for artificial intelligence (AI) and application testing services. The document contains data from IDC's Application Services Survey, which was completed in December 2018. IDC's Worldwide Application Lifecycle and Cloud Services practice conducted this survey to understand enterprise interests and perceptions for using AI as part of application testing and application life-cycle management. The overall goal of the survey was to identify how organizations have been and plan to evolve their application portfolios today and in the future, as well as how they intend to leverage new technologies to support application life-cycle management and testing to aid them in transforming their application delivery capabilities.
"Providers of application testing services must understand how organizations are approaching artificial testing as part of their application testing and life-cycle management tasks to be well positioned to support evolving customer needs and generate higher value in their customer relationships," explained Pete Marston, Worldwide Application Lifecycle and Cloud Services.
