As applications and services migrate to the cloud, testing will follow the same trend. Therefore, organizations must understand the dynamics of cloud-based testing. This article presents interviews with eight organizations that use cloud computing. The results suggest that cloud computing can make testing faster and enhance the delivery of testing services. Cloud computing also highlights important aspects of testing that require attention, such as integration and interoperability. This article includes a Web extra that provides additional references for further study.
