Why Testing is required?
In today’s competitive market and advanced technology world, customers want software releases to have new features and implemented faster. They need working software rather than written documents or prototypes. To achieve this, developers build the software within a short time frame introducing defects in the software. If the software is released without testing, it can cause the system to fail or return incorrect results. Therefore testing is required to help improve the quality, reliability, accuracy, usability and performance of the system. Testing is done to verify if the software
- meets expectations,
- prevents unexpected results,
- satisfies the needs of customers,
- improves long term maintenance of the application.
However in Agile paradigm, every aspect of development, requirements, design and testing is continually revisited throughout the lifecycle. Testing happens early and often. It is done concurrently with coding. Automated tests are run frequently to test the software effectively and within the release time. In Agile testing process:
- Working software is built and tested frequently
- Customer satisfaction by rapid, continuous delivery of software
- Direct interaction with people are emphasized rather than process and tools
- Regular adaptation to changing circumstances
- Quality is combined team’s responsibility
- Focus on team goals and customer value
