Software Testing

Software testing is a crucial process in software development that involves evaluating a system or application to ensure it meets the specified requirements and functions as expected. The primary goal of software testing is to identify defects, errors, or bugs in the software, allowing developers to fix them before releasing the product to end-users.

Here are some key concepts and techniques commonly used in software testing and ITRIBON provide support on below testing verticals:

  1. Test Planning: It involves defining objectives, scope, and strategies for testing. Test planning includes identifying test objectives, creating test plans, and determining the testing resources and schedules.
  2. Test Cases: Test cases are specific conditions or inputs that are designed to validate particular features or functions of the software. Test cases are derived from requirements and help verify that the software behaves as intended.
  3. Test Execution: Test execution involves running the test cases on the software and recording the results. It helps identify any discrepancies between the expected and actual behavior of the system.
  4. Functional Testing: This type of testing focuses on verifying whether the software meets the functional requirements and performs the intended functions accurately.
  5. Performance Testing: Performance testing evaluates the system’s responsiveness, scalability, and stability under various workload conditions. It ensures that the software performs well in terms of speed, resource usage, and reliability.
  6. Security Testing: Security testing is performed to identify vulnerabilities or weaknesses in the software that could be exploited by unauthorized users. It helps ensure the software is robust and protects sensitive data.
  7. Regression Testing: Regression testing is conducted after modifications or updates to the software to ensure that previously working features have not been affected and that new bugs have not been introduced.
  8. Test Automation: Test automation involves using software tools to automate the execution of tests, compare actual outcomes with expected results, and generate detailed reports. It helps improve efficiency and coverage of testing activities.
  9. User Acceptance Testing (UAT): UAT involves testing the software with end-users to ensure it meets their expectations and performs as intended in their specific environment.
  10. Bug Tracking and Reporting: Bugs or defects discovered during testing are logged, tracked, and reported to developers for resolution. Bug tracking tools help manage and prioritize reported issues.
