Integration Test is a term used in software development. It describes a series of successive tests by which the interaction of different components of a complex system, such as software, is tested. Thus, the integration test is intended to uncover errors with regard to the interaction of the individual system components and with regard to the interfaces. Before integration tests are carried out, the individual components of the system are usually already tested in previous test runs and classified as functional. The efficiency of the integration tests is to be increased by these preceding tests of the single modules.Why this is interesting for a Chief Digital Officer (CDO)?
