Abstract

Software Quality is a critically important yet very challenging aspect of building complex software systems. This has been widely acknowledged as a fundamental issue for enterprise, web, and mobile software systems. However, assuring appropriate levels of software quality when building today (and tomorrow’s) adaptive, software-intensive and highly diverse systems is even more of a challenge. How to ensure appropriate levels of quality in agile-based processes has become a topical concern. The implications of large-scale, highly adaptive systems on quality is critical, especially with the likely emergence of the Internet of Things. In this book we
collect a range of recent research and practice efforts in the Software Quality Assurance domain, with a particular focus on emerging adaptable, complex systems. We aim for this book to be useful for researchers, students and practitioners
with an emphasis on both practical solutions that can be used now or in the near future but with a solid foundation of underpinning concepts and principles that will hold true for many years to come.
