A number of industries have benefited from the progress in technology.
Businesses all over the world have profited from the automation
capabilities that software has brought about. There is not a shadow of
doubt that software - good software, specifically - adds a lot of value to
the world. One downside, if you can call it that, is that software
development processes evolve faster than anything else. For an
individual, it means keeping a tab over everything that is happening in
and around the market.

                                         Not only that, you also have to
                                        follow efficient practices in order
                                        to write good software. It isn’t
                                        easy to be efficient though; you
                                        need to understand what
                                        efficiency means in the first place,
                                        what it entails. For example,
                                        developing software isn’t just
                                        about developing it; you also have
to test it continuously under varied environments. It is crucial to test your
software continuously. Most organizations, as you will see, put special
emphasis on software testing.

What entails software testing?

Software testing is actually easy to define. It’s the set of processes that
are employed to test a software’s reliability. It usually comes after the
development cycle. There are different schools of thought when it comes
to software development and hence, it’s no surprise that they follow
different standards for testing, too.

The conventional method of software development is the waterfall model
where testing is the last step of the process. .
