A Guide To Software Testing

Software testing is a well known practice in which development teams investigate whether or not the software they’ve built actually does what it is supposed to do, and does not contain any errors that will affect the performance or security of the application. With the ongoing pressure to deliver software faster than ever before, software testing has become even more imperative to a business’ success.

There are many different approaches teams can take for software testing — automated testing, A/B testing, continuous testingtest-driven development and QA testing to name a few. In addition, there are many different areas and stages within the software that teams need to worry about.

The two main focuses associated with software testing are verification and validation. Verification ensures the software is working as specified, and validation ensures the software satisfies the requirements it was intended for. As software continues to be an important part of the business, testing will need to shift left in the lifecycle and be applied throughout the development process earlier and more often.
