What is Software Testing?

According to the ANSI/IEEE 1059 Software Testing Standard, Testing in Software Engineering is a process of analyzing a software product or system to examine a software product or system to determine whether it satisfies or fails to satisfy established conditions (i.e., defects). The testing process evaluates the software product’s characteristics for requirements such as missing requirements, bugs, or errors to evaluate its reliability, security, and performance.

Why do we need to Learn Software Testing?

Software testing is a widely used technology in the IT Industry because it is compulsory to test each and every piece of software before deployment. In the IT industry, large companies have a team with responsibilities to evaluate the developed software in the context of the given requirements. Moreover, developers also conduct testing, which is called Unit Testing. In most cases, the following professionals are involved in testing a system within their respective capacities −

  • Software Tester
  • Software Developer
  • Project Lead/Manager
  • End User

Different companies have different designations for people who test the software on the basis of their experience and knowledge, such as Software Tester, Software Quality Assurance Engineer, QA Analyst, etc.
