This paper investigates the latest approach in testing, known as Shift-Right testing, within the context of modern software development. Diverging from the established Shift-Left approach, Shift-Right testing prioritizes post-deployment testing, with a specific focus on real-world scenarios in the live production environment, thereby departing from conventional testing practices. This paper delves into the key characteristics, benefits, tools, and practices associated with Shift-Right testing. This also highlights how shift left testing aligns with the principles of continuous improvement, user-centric design, and efficient incident response. Finally, this document also discusses how the integration of Shift-Right testing with Agile methodologies can accelerate time-to-market, enhance collaboration, and facilitate risk mitigation. In conclusion, the paper strongly recommends the widespread incorporation of Shift-Right testing in modern software development to meet the changing needs for software quality and user satisfaction.
