Re: Customer retention rates...
It only seems natural that testing will become an important factor as noted that systems need to have "no tolerance for unreliability" and getting to 100% reliability will be important in critical uses of IoT, manufacturing process and automated processes. I can only wish for the day my home internet become completely error free, noting that it's been down or slow several times a week lately.

Obvious vs complex vs chaotic work...
Work can be categorized as obvious, complex or chaotic.. where obvious work has known knowns and may be automated someday... it'll be interesting if robots can do chaotic work soon.

Re: Customer retention rates...
It's amazing actually that a complex smartphone costs less than some other items that seem far less complicated. A fashionable leather bag with a few zippers and pockets can't be manufactured autonomously, but the processes for making chips and smartphones are probably similarly labor intensive?

> "Testing is often seen as optional or as a luxury."
Wow. Hopefully that attitude changes quickly as more and more steps of deployment can be automated.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
