How well does your developed software or app behave is something that can make or break your business. The behavior of your software or app depends on how comprehensively it is tested. Compromising on testing means compromising on your customer and your business reputation. So, your software or app should be tested before your customer uses it. Well tested software or app could prove beneficial for the businesses as well as customers before its release. There are a few aspects that you know to need when you wanted to get the most out of software testing.
Achieving completeness in software testing means achieving maximum functional coverage, not 100% quality
Most people think that achieving completeness in software testing means achieving 100% quality, but testing is a continuous process especially if you are in agile software development and you will see fix defects or enhancements even in production environment. So, to achieve completeness you need to target to achieve maximum functional coverage by covering all the functional points while testing.
If your software or app has global reach and you wanted to know how it can perform in certain geographies, then rely on crowd sourced testing platforms where crowd from your targeted geographies will be sourced for testing.
Bringing the collaboration between development and testing teams to achieve more than defect detection and improve defect fixing process for improved quality of software
Quality of a software depends on not just defect detection but also on the defect fixing process, so there should be a collaboration between testing and development teams. If any of the two is told to step back from the process, it will not only cause a hampered relationship among the testers and developers but also will affect the quality of the product. From the day one of the testing process, the testers and developers must communicate and work in collaboration to identify and understand the bugs respectively to fix them and deliver the quality assured product.
Maintaining the right balance between test automation and manual testing
The advancement in testing scenario has brought automation at the top and made it as necessity for faster time to market. However, there are certain scenarios in testing cycle when automation cannot serve the purpose. But organizations who have already adopted test automation are striving to increase the percentage of automation they have achieved. This has led them to neglect manual testing, which is utmost essential to release a better-quality software.
There should be right balance maintained between test automation and manual testing for improved deliverables. Automation is the right tool to automate activities that consume a lot of time and effort when done manually, and manual testing is utmost essential to implement all the possible scenarios under which the application under test is tested.
Deciding on what to be outsourced and what to be handled by in-house team
Maintaining an in-house team for testing will have hidden costs alongside operational risks, whereas relying completely on an external team can save you cost but you need to ensure that you are relying on a right one. If you wanted to focus more on your core business and testing to be taken care of by an external team, then outsourcing completely would be an ideal choice; but to get the best results, it is recommended to have an internal team as well which will be doing user acceptance and exploratory testing.
Combination of internal team’s effort and your extended outsourced team’s effort will yield to deliver a better-quality software.
