What is software testing?

Software that is developed has to be tested before it is introduced to the market. The process of investigating the software product to evaluate the quality of the product is known as Software Testing. This process is a mandatory step in the evaluation of a software product and is forms an integral part of the entire software development process.

The process of software testing involves the validation of whether the expected output occurs in relation to the given input. For example, if a certain software product has been defined to produce an output based on the given input, testing it will open up the behavior of the product and define the differences (if any) from the desired output. This assessment will help gauge the features of the product and its quality.

Software testing is also a verification process to certify the behavior of the product and assess its capabilities. It not only identifies the attributes of the product but helps in identifying the risks of implementing the software product. Software testing provides an objective view of the performance of the product and helps in developing a quality product.

Software testing is usually carried out during the development process in order to constantly improve the capabilities of the product. Software testing jobs is the most sought after job in 2015.
