Engineers and managers can use the report to take advantage of the latest strategies and best practices for optimising any test organisation.

Automated Test Outlook 2013 covers the following trends:
    Test Economics: New investment models force test departments to rethink the way they measure success.
    Big Analogue Data: Industry leaders leverage IT infrastructures and analytic tools to make faster decisions on test data.
    Software-Centric Ecosystems: Open, software-centric ecosystems greatly impact the value derived from automated test systems.
    Test Software Quality: Engineers use software development best practices to ensure test system reliability for complex systems.
    Moore’s Law Meets RF: New technology and instrumentation platforms drive up performance and drive down the cost of RF test equipment.

The Automated Test Outlook is based on input from academic and industry research, user forums and surveys, business intelligence and customer advisory board reviews. With this data as its foundation, the report delivers a broad representation of the next generation of trends for meeting the business and technical challenges in test and measurement.
