The Software Testing in the Cloud (STITC) series of events explores another approach to solving the problem: leveraging the resources provided by a cloud computing infrastructure to facilitate the concurrent execution of test cases. Software testing in the cloud relies on underlying technology such as distributed execution environments, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and hardware virtualization.
A secondary focus of STITC is examining methods for migrating legacy testing assets to the cloud. This work, called SMART-T, builds upon the Service Migration and Reuse Technique (SMART) from Carnegie Mellon's Software Engineering Institute.
