Software testing is a critical element in the software development life cycle and has the potential to save time and money by identifying problems early and to improve customer satisfaction by delivering a more defect-free product.

In some instances, our testers take over the role of an end user, prepare test cases in line with the software specification requirements and test the Software to identify any un-expected behaviour or bug to gauge whether the application meets the intended specifications and satisfies the client’s requirements.

During test planning we decide what an important defect is by reviewing the requirements and design documents, an important defect will then be one that from the customer’s perspective affects the usability or functionality of the application.

We are involved in the Quality Assurance of the software development project by reviewing and auditing software products and activities to verify that they comply with the applicable procedures and standards, we document the degree to which the standard processes or best practices are followed (or otherwise). This is documented in the report we present to the software project team and other appropriate managers.

The benefits of an Independent testing team can not be over emphasized in the success of any software development efforts, some of these are:

  • An independent tester can un-cover more and entirely different bugs than a tester working within a programming team.
  • An independent tester brings a different set of assumptions to testing and to reviews, which often helps in exposing the hidden defects and problems
  • Since an independent tester will be reporting to the Senior MAnagement, he can present the test report in a transparent manner without any concern for reprisal that might result from pointing out problems in coworkers' work.
  • An independent tester has chosen a career path in Software Testing, he can afford to invest sufficiently into relevant trainings, tools etc
