Software Testing

What is Software Testing?

Software Testing is the process of executing a program or system with the intent of finding errors. Or, it involves any activity aimed at evaluating an attribute or capability of a program or system and determining that it meets its required results. Software is not unlike other physical processes where inputs are received and outputs are produced. Where software differs is in the manner in which it fails. Most physical systems fail in a fixed (and reasonably small) set of ways. By contrast, software can fail in many bizarre ways. Detecting all of the different failure modes for software is generally infeasible.
What You Should Already Know To Learn This Software
Before you continue you should have a basic understanding of the following:

Why Software Testing?

With the changing trend in the industry, software testing too changes. Today, trends like Web based applications, Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), Software as a Service (SaaS), Wireless Technologies, Mobile technologies, with the increasing emphasis on the 4Rs, repeatability, reliability, re-use and robustness, has opened a new path to testing, where testing will need to change to accommodate these trends and become a business led activity.
The role of the Professional Tester will now become more interesting and more essential. And so will Testing and Quality Assurance, which will become more important and add more value as we move into architectures and technologies which support the business in their goals of bringing products and services to the market as rapidly as possible, with minimal risk. We will see a shift towards testing the transformed business operation, the business processes, the way people interact with the systems and processes and the information it provides, and therefore mitigating the risks and increasing the benefits of business change.

Scope of Software Testing

  • A precise appreciation of business needs and expectations; this will enable you to see the way ahead
  • A firm basis for the development of the software specification; this ensuresthat the software will come as close as possible  to meeting the business needssooner, and ensure a smooth transition for the business
  • An ideal platform for continuous improvement of business processes, eitherduring the implementation, or after
  • An accurate outline of the project on which you can base your implementationplan and monitor project progress
  • A readily adaptable set of parameters on which to base system testing
  • A vastly improved appreciation of business needs and expectations againstwhich you can gauge the success of the  project


Any undergraduate can learn software testing

Training Institutions

Established in the year 2003, Ascent Software Training Institute (ASTI) is one of the pioneering Global Talent Development Institute.
