Exploratory Testing, which is often referred as black box testing technique is all about exploring things during testing. Unlike other testing concepts, exploring is more of a hands-on approach with minimum planning and maximum execution. Greater focus is on exploring what the software does, how it works, what functionalities go through the testing funnel and so on.
Email marketing is alive and fighting fit. In spite of it often being seen as an outdated digital medium, it remains relevant as an irreplaceable tool for marketers. It has evolved a lot over the past few years in terms of content, design and timing; and it is not slowing down.
Pair testing, also known as buddy testing is a latest trend in software testing. The idea is simple; it involves two supporters from different teams testing a project on the same device/computer. Typically, the pair is a tester and a developer, but the pair can also be combination of a tester, developer and an analyst.
IT testing is known for the exhaustive number of test cases and manual toil - but is no longer a pain after “automation” in IT came as an angel in disguise. Execution times reduced there by increasing efficiency. First generation test automation tools provided macro recording facility which ran on synchronous API where the test execution engine fires a command and then waits for it to be executed. This tool was working well for short length automation and was also done by combining a logical sequence of such short length macros & the test flow.
As per the predictions of the Nelson Hall research group, the market size for overall software testing is expected to rise to around $34 billion by 2017. In the worldwide software and product development, overall quality is becoming better and better as application testing as a discipline is evolving. Agile techniques and practices are gradually being adopted, and software testing is more widely used. In fact, there has been an upward spiral in the number of companies adopting a fully operational Test Centre of Excellence with growing testing budgets.
Software testing plays an important role in the software development life cycle as every customer expects zero defects &100% performance. Innovative ways in testing practices which can bring down cost and save time are always in need. Cloud computing is one of the best ways for Software testing at the present scenario which gave a new thought in delivering services in IT sector. It has advantage of distributing & using resources across the globe at the time of your convenience.
The rapid growth of IT industry continuously brings efficiency, innovation, and agility in IT operations. Organizations are fast approaching cloud computing to gain efficiency in development, testing and creating web applications to meet customer’s demands. Cloud platforms such as PaaS allow organizations to maintain proper balance between centralization and distribution of control. Centralization of control brings consistency, economies of scale, and efficient roll out of innovation while distribution of control allows agility and flexibility to organizations to respond quickly.
There were days when organizations were striving for getting real time information. With mastering real time information, organizations were able to make decisions quickly. But with recent advances in analytics, cloud computing and data mining, the quest has transferred from real time information to real time ‘Sense and Response’.
