21 April, 2016, Paris, France/Vianen, Netherlands – The ongoing disruption of value chains via machine-to-machine communication is forcing organizations to completely rethink and retool their business. The Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet of Things have started to reshape product design, customer engagement, decision making, marketing strategies and after sales.

Sogeti is launching a testing approach for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions which has a broader and more complex scope than traditional software testing. The IT services provider is in this way extending its market leading TMap® Next and TMap® HD testing methodologies for Internet of Things solutions.

“The Internet of Things gives us solutions made of a mix of expertise such as High Tech “Things”, mobile solutions and business intelligence. Not only do companies need a wide range of test expertise for IoT testing, but with “Things”, sensors, actors, electronics and other hardware are added to the test scope. IoTMap gives valuable insight in testing Internet of Things solutions and our book clearly shows how to do it”, said Tom van de Ven, one of the authors of the new book.

The book “IoTMap; Testing in a IoT environment” dives into the complete scope of securing the quality of IoT solutions including connectivity , scalability , end to end functions , security and  the entire testing scope.

A 5 step approach
The new book describes the IoTMap testing approach that includes five concrete steps. These five steps to create a testing strategy for Internet of Things solutions are; testing IoT layerscombining testing expertisechoosing IoT test environmentsselecting the right quality attributes and deciding on building blocks.

New implications
The differences between traditional and IoT testing have multiple implications for companies.

“Different from traditional software development and testing, testing Internet of Things solutions have a much broader and complex scope. A variety of testing expertise is necessary. At the same time it is more than ever a challenge to define the scope of testing; either what to test or not,” commented Tom van de Ven, and continued:

“Testing everything is no longer any option related to costs. Moreover, implementing different testing expertise creates the risk for overlap. Similar double actions have to be avoided. So effective co-operation among different disciplines and close engagement of end users during the development of Internet of Things solutions are important conditions for success.”

Sogeti High Tech and Testing experts Tom van de Ven and Jean-Paul Duniau together with SogetiLabs trend watcher Jaap Bloem are the authors behind this new IoT testing book. This book can be ordered and downloaded in the Sogeti online bookstore:
