About Software Testing Training

Software Testing is the process of executing intentional inspections into the functionality of a system, program, or application, with the overarching purpose to enhance operational performance. Testing can involve applying techniques with the intent to locate software defects, but can also simply allow businesses to realise the risks of software implementation. Software Testing investigates if an application, program, or system functions correctly, and reliably, to all types of input, within a suitable time frame, whilst achieving the desired outcome.

 

With increasingly complex IT systems being introduced, Software Testing is becoming progressively more and more valued within business. Consequently, Software Testing has raised its status and nowadays is regarded as an important and valued profession globally.
