WHY AND HOW SOFTWARE TESTING NEEDS REVOLUTION ???

In today’s era…As every Technology is growing, Software testing is also growing. Technology brings the revolution then why not software testing…
So, My question is – as a tester are we growing?
I think this is the time for software testing to be revolutionized.
SOFTWARE TESTING REVOLUTION

Due to tough competition, every company holder wants to have maximum number of customers and do their best to attract customers or to satisfy end users, by hitting the work, be it timeline, cost, end product…
Along with this, customers and end users wants to get finish their work more perfectly, more reliable product and in given timeline. And today’s Customers are very clear about their requirements and they expected the same at the time of implementation.

With this change, software tester can’t do traditional testing. We have to change our ideas, our observing sight, and most important the thinking process…

AND HOW DOES THIS WILL HAPPEN???
HOW:

> While reading the requirements you should ask more questions…
> Prepare a brief documentation for you and team’s understanding…
> Improve the work on communication…
> Improve your analysis and reporting skills…

If you are ready to do these tasks, then your wait is end here…You are on right track to implement, change, etc.

CHANGING TECHNOLOGY:

Change in technology leads to change in expectation means at that time when mobiles are less familiar and people were rarely discuss about mobile application. But with the pace of change in technology, growing market for mobile applications lets say Android and iOS…
Software tester should have knowledge about mobile technologies so that they can improve their testing skills because meaning of software testing has been changed.
Mobile testing is totally different than traditional testing…

HOW:

> Need to think about more context or situation…
> Observe more and more people and the way they use mobile phones…
> Understand purpose of product / application…

And Still you are ready then let’s start implementing from this moment…

LACK OF IDEAS:

As we know we have numerous tools but there is lack of ideas…I mean to say as Automation is in demand and the fact is – People think if they know automation, they will be a good tester…
But that is not the case. Tool can’t replace human mind, They can make life easier but the fact is they are created by humans. I am not saying that manual tester is better than automation or vice-versa but what I am trying to be stressed upon is… Testing cannot be completed without ideas and manual efforts. Tool cannot test, report application, behavior of the product on its own. The tool only follows the script and you need to be prepared for what generated by the tool and results as well.
Automation should be coupled with manual testing…

HOW:

> Be Enthusiastic to learn something new everyday and implement it…
> Trying to think of new ways to test the current application / product…
> Go for detailed research that which tool can make life easy…
> Observe the product and provide more details about bug…

SOFTWARE TESTING CERTIFICATIONS:

Lets have an example – Do anyone can learn and explore more if he is not under pressure of exam? Instead of have taught the subject just to learn.
As we all just become result oriented and that’s not a good sign for the community…

I am not an opponent of certification but this is not the final result of your real skills. Here is the point of software testing, it’s about to growing day by day.

Nobody can think thousands of ideas per day,
Nobody can learn an automation tool just in one hour or two hours,
Nobody can observe hundreds of bugs within 1st week of testing,
From the starting edge of the career, Nobody can communicate well with developers and customers.
But it is a matter of growing. With the passage of time or our experience, we learn and develop our skills.

We all are very well known to this term…Learn from your past mistakes and keep notes of them. When working on other projects, Don’t repeat the same mistakes…

Keep your testing continues…

A real test manager always tests. Its doesn’t matter how many years of experience you have, always be in mode of learning the new way of testing. Regularly, At least spend couple of hours for testing.

HOW:

> Do testing in real time products…
> Keep Suggesting the ideas to make product more useful…
> Research and Study the market and learn what is the reason behind this some products are bestselling but others are not…
> Try to do the testing in different ways…

From above what we Concluded is software testing is all about new ideas… A sign of good software tester is he/she is a good idea generator. So always put your mind in work and getting new ideas. Always try to compare your product with real time product then think how well you would test it. Its gives a new strength and sight to look at…Along with this reporting and communication is also a very successful weapon in testing. The one who cannot communicate well, cannot achieve success in any field…
