Software testing is a range of activities done to check the proper working of any product or services. Fundamentally, it’s the checking of expected and actual output and analyzing any defects in the product.
It involves the execution of software or system components, to help identify errors, gaps, and missing requirements. It can either be done manually or by using automated tools.
Some of the worlds biggest corporations and governments has faced multiple mishaps due to software failures.
Here are some of the examples:
Software failure in Nissan cars airbag sensory detectors
Nissan cars have to recall over 1 million cars from the market due to a software failure in the airbag sensory detectors. There has been reported two accident due to this software failure.
Software glitch in F-35 fighter planes causes target detection problems
This spring a serious software glitch in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter air crafts garnered wide public attention. The plane engineers identified a software bug that causes the planes, when flying in formation, to incorrectly detect targets.
Software glitch in Amazon.com cause heavy losses to third-party retailers
Some of Amazon’s third-party retailers saw their product price is reduced to 1p due to a software glitch. They were left with heavy losses.
Hence, Software Testing stays significant because software glitches could be expensive or even dangerous.
Again, Why is Software Testing needed?
Every business today wants to achieve Quality and Speed to stay competitive and keep up with changing customer preferences.
So It is much more important now, that software testing verifies and validates that the product meets the stated requirements/specifications.
A Proper & frequent Software Testing enables the following benefits to a business –
- Easy detection of defects or bugs in the early stages of development
- Software testing improves the Quality of the product
- Makes the software more reliable and user-friendly
- Accurate, Consistent and Reliable results lead to consumer satisfaction
- Error-free software ensures efficient resource utilization resulting in low operating & maintenance cost
- Consistent software testing can avoid failures and losses in future
If this thought – “Is my product functionally fit for release?” haunt you right before your product release, then you are not really ready.
What makes your product launch-ready?
Security and Penetration Testing
Increasing cyber attacks has been a concern for almost every industry.
31% of organizations have experienced cyber attacks on operational technology infrastructure. (Cisco)
It has now become even more important to have frequent penetration testing & vulnerability scans, to ensure the proper working of cyber controls.
We at SBITS ensures the elimination of the possible vulnerabilities to viruses, hackers or any other data/security breaches, by using most appropriate tools and techniques.
The desire for lightning fast internet and technology has intensified users expectations from the applications. Applications are expected to be fast, smooth, easy to use, secure and reliable in today’s world. While we build an application for any businesses, we think it will run 24/7 without any issues. But there are times when it is under stress and for businesses, even a few minutes of downtime can be extremely costly.
We can refer the case of Southwest Airlines here, they experienced a major glitch in their system, resulting in a delay of 450 flights and caused staff to issue handwritten tickets.
There are visible outcomes of effective testing as well, like when Obama became president, his fund-raising platform in 2011 increased page speed by 60% and raised an additional $34 million for his campaign. They prepared it for every single probable donation and we can see the results.
Functional testing is a crucial step in evaluating the performance of an application before it’s delivered to the real world.
Our QA team evaluates & ensures the efficient performance of individual functions of a software application so that your application works as per the desired functional specifications and competently meets the client’s expectations.
User – Experience testing
Keeping the software functional but attractive is another important task with a vast amount of experience of the various products, we test as an end user to determine the best-supposed way to interact with the audience.
Your application should be compatible to work on varied platforms/devices/browsers without fail. For that using the most advanced tools and automation, we ensure you, your product gets full and comprehensive coverage across all the screen resolutions, browsers and operating systems.
We set a clear assortment of roles and responsibilities and a strong process-oriented approach resulting in an excellent/polished outcome.
Our agile testers collaborate and identify the risk and threat areas in your application for your peace of mind.
