How to Test in the Internet of Things
By Jennifer Riggins

It seems not too far off until fridges will be auto-ordering our milk and cars will be steering us around.

What we've appreciated for years in the Software as a Service (SaaS) space as integrated workflows, driven by application programming interfaces or APIs, is now driving our entire integrated, automated, connected world.

The idea of connected devices isn't a new one, but the magnitude of what's called the Internet of Things or the Internet of Everything has the potential to impact our lives like never before.

IoT brings with it awesome opportunities to improve our lives through healthcare, education, safety, parenting, and so much more.

But it also comes with its own staggering set of security and privacy risks.

According to Gartner, by 2020, the number of connected devices lumped together as the Internet of Things will grow to 20.8 billion.

This means designers, developers and testers have more of an opportunity than ever before to impact the lives of millions, or even billions, in an increasingly significant way. Likewise, how people use our solutions will dramatically change the way we design, develop, and test.

There's no doubt that the importance of the role of the tester will continue to increase with the Internet of Things.

But that doesn't mean it'll get any easier.

In fact, the job of the tester is becoming several layers and stacks harder. Although we may not know exactly what IoT testing will look like, and we can't know what the future of IoT will hold, there's no doubt that the tester is at the forefront of the Internet of Things.

We've listened to dozens of IoT and testing leaders - exploring the current state of testing, their experiences with testing IoT devices, and their predictions and demands for the future of the space, to create a comprehensive guide to the ever-evolving state of testing the Internet of Things.

When we started this, the response from the tester community and the development community as a whole was a ravenousness demand for more information.

The Internet of Things is no longer an if but a when, and the community wants to be prepared.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
