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.

PRINCE2 Will Change Your Life

I’m sure the question that’s floating around your mind is “How?”

Well you’ve come to the right place because we’re going to tell you all about it.

PRINCE2 is an acronym for Projects in Controlled Environments. It’s a de facto process-based method for effective project management. This means that the course allows you to run your business with the correct methodology in mind. PRINCE2 has become increasingly more popular and is now a globally recognised certification in both public and private sector organisations. 

Fact of the day:
“PRINCE2 has been around since 1989, that’s nearly 30 years!”

PRINCE2’s Key Features Include:
     1. Business justification focus
     2. An organised and defined structure for the project management team
     3. A planning approach to products
     4. Helps divide your poroject into stages that are manageable and controllable
     5. A level of flexibilty that can applied to your business' project(s)

So what are the benefits of PRINCE2?
By using PRINCE2, it will provide you with the resources and the ability to manage your business as well as projecting risk more effectively.
This will benefit:
     - Anyone searching for leading project management skills to further their career
     - Any current budding project managers within your business
     - Directors or executives of projects and organisations

Having a PRINCE2 certification would be an asset to your career; not only will it increase your likelihood for employment, but it also helps you fulfil your job to the best of your abilities!

Where do you see yourself in years to come?
Being PRINCE2 Certified opens up many doors to a better future. It will enable you to make your way up the management ladder. Getting a project management role can require several years of experience within a technical role appropriate to the project, but being certified would boost your chances of being able to climb that ladder quicker!

You could find yourself managing projects anywhere from the top of an office building to even remote tropical islands out on the ocean.

Qualifications and Training
Imagine PRINCE2 as if it were a cake; with four tiers, each containing a different level of which you can study the course.
PRINCE2 Foundation:
This is the base of the cake, a great place to start is you’re new. The foundation course covers the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2.
PRINCE 2 Practitioner:
The second tier is suitable for those already managing projects within a PRINCE2 environment and therefore have a little experience in mind.
PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner:
Tier three contains both courses if you wish to take both.
PRINCE2 Re-Registration:
You will need to re-register after 3-5 years of becoming “PRINCE2 Certified”, this is just to keep your memory refreshed. Just think of it as you’re done eating the first and second (maybe even third) tiers of your cake – but the final tier, you can’t quite stomach yet. So you come back to it every now and then to remind you how good it tastes.

The world of PRINCE2 will open up your mind to many possibilities in the future of your career.

“So have your cake and eat it.”

Good course and material.
4.94
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.
