It's the million dollar question: How can organizations release with speed and agility at the pace of business demands? Not only do consumers expect functionality, they also want superior (and maintained) quality.
Typically, brands are not able to deliver on quality and agility simultaneously. Realtor.com, the pioneer of digital real estate, experienced this predicament firsthand when enhancing their platform. When emphasis was put on quality, web and mobile development slowed. When focusing on agility, quality standards declined.
Realtor.com arrived at a solution by adopting a well-rounded approach to their testing strategy — by combining automation, real-world testing and user feedback.
