‘Why Didn’t This Get Tested?’ End-to-End Testing with Live User Data

1 day 16 hours ago

Insufficient or inconsistent quality assurance test coverage leads to bugs in production, which negatively impact cost, revenue, customer satisfaction and, ultimately, brand value. Bugs in production can cost up to seven times more to resolve than they would have in the testing stage. However, because end-to-end (E2E) testing is expensive in terms of both money […]
