The key technology that the author would like to see adopted by the masses is a family of software fault injection algorithms that can predict where to concentrate testing. From a novelty standpoint, these algorithms were (and still are) unique among other methods of performing fault injection. The author concedes that the algorithms are computational, but the results can provide unequaled information about how “bad things” propagate through systems. Because of that, he thinks fault injection methods are valuable to anyone responsible for software quality, including those working in one-person independent software vendors (ISVs) or even the largest corporations
