Why scalability is important?
Your businesses depends on more than one software and their interoperability, regardless of whether you are a software company or a company whose business is heavily dependent on it. The ecosystem that your business depends on, and is going to inevitably depend more and more on, is experiencing few shifts:
- Complexity of ecosystems is growing out of hands
- More and more of software is either already in the cloud or are moving towards cloud: Salesforce, SAP etc.
- Transition towards DevOps
All of which leads to an increasing dependence on QA. Now, you would definitely not want your speed of innovation, time to go to market or agility to suffer, because your testing solution either cannot scale at all or the scaling puts a lot of stress on time, money and resources. Also, you would not like to incur hefty costs because the solution, that you just scaled up with enormous effort, needs equal amount of effort to scale down, when not required.
