Software testing is an important process of software development life cycles. And it is a never-ending process for enterprises. Your test strategy should include both defect prevention techniques and defect detection techniques. Moreover, software testers should select the right metrics to track the quality, select right tools and most importantly collaborate to be successful.
Now enterprises are expecting the testing to add value to the product by ensuring quality, which means a lot to the testing industry and to the QA departments. Collaboration and knowledge management also significantly influence the efficiency and effectiveness of testing organizations.
Testing has evolved in all three key directions – people, process and tools. Testing has evolved itself as a mainstream career path right from tester to top job. Testing tools also evolved from the desks of a developer to a mainstream industry with significant growth.
