What is Software Testing?

In software testing, a program or system is evaluated against its requirements in order to determine its effectiveness. Often, software testing consists of executing software to find bugs, but this is not always the case. Sometimes software is simply tested to check that it does what it was designed to do.

The Software Testing Foundation exam is provided by the ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board), a not-for-profit organisation which provides globally accredited software testing certification to professionals around the world.

 

Case Study

The case of a market-leading blue chip company illustrates the importance of software testing to every organisation. The company provided an email information service which clients could pay to receive. However, they found that 30% of their clients could not read the emails. This meant that not only was their revenue in danger, but their reputation, too.

To gain an idea of what the problem was, the software testing company they hired sought customer feedback. This feedback indicated that customers were using a wide range of different email clients, and that in many of them emails didn’t display properly. The software testing company created a dedicated testing environment where they could test every type of software clients used, from every version of Outlook and Outlook Express, to web-based email systems such as Hotmail, AOL and Yahoo.

After rigorous software testing, the blue-chip company had a set of email templates which both conformed to their graphic design requirements and displayed properly within the whole range of email clients used by their customers. This meant their reputation was saved and they lost no revenue.

Good course and material.

I have undertaken three courses with TKA in recent months and cannot fault the organisation and administration they display at every stage. Of course the backroom work is just one part when it comes to the training the three tutors were the most knowledgeable people I have ever met and their input enabled me to successfully pass all three courses which will surely enhance my prospects in my future career. I would not hesitate to use TKA in the future.
