NI Automated Test Outlook 2014 Forecasts Latest Trends

Stocks in this article: NATI





AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI) today released its Automated Test Outlook 2014, highlighting the company's research into the latest test and measurement technologies and methodologies. Engineers and managers can use the report, which examines trends affecting a wide range of industries, to take advantage of the latest strategies and best practices for optimizing any test organization.  

Automated Test Outlook 2014 explores the following:

Business Strategy: Organizational ProficiencyThe talent pool for test engineers is shrinking and test managers must improve organizational proficiency through smarter hiring, better onboarding and greater investment in training to ensure a properly skilled and staffed test organization.

Architecture: Managed Test SystemsNew technologies deliver greater feature sets on test equipment, helping test managers monitor the health of their test systems, lowering test costs and maximizing uptime.

Computing: Cloud Computing for TestTraditional test frameworks limit profitability by not providing the ideal balance of performance and cost or the ability to scale based on actual product demand. Similar to the IT industry, cloud computing applied to automated test can alleviate these growing test concerns.

Software: Scalable Test Software ArchitecturesPressure to deliver test systems faster with fewer resources shifts software strategies away from rigid, inflexible solutions in favor of software-based platforms to maximize longevity and scalability across a product's lifecycle and across new product designs.

I/O: Redefining the Notion of SensorsThe number of sensors in products has significantly increased, challenging test managers to keep up with new technologies and adapt to this growing need. Test managers need agile test solutions they can change as quickly as the sensor-integrated products they test.

Automated Test Outlook 2014 is based on academic and industry research, user forums and surveys, business intelligence and customer advisory board reviews.
