About Software Testing

Our lives grow more convenient every day; in large part, this is due to software. Smartphone apps, ATMs, and online shopping are just a few examples. Each time we use these software-supported applications, we are not concerned about whether they will operate correctly.

That is because we believe they will always work accurately. However, software grows increasingly sophisticated and structurally complex. Software that has just been released has a high probability of not operating correctly.

For this reason, before unveiling software to the end user it needs to go through checking and revision processes to ensure it performs correctly. The process of confirming that software operates properly is referred to as “software testing.”

Software testing involves going through the variety of conditions under which products and services will be used, creating standards to check that individual requirements are met, and repeating the checking process until all are satisfied. This process results in software that is safe and appropriate.
