Software testing can be used to investigate the efficiency and effectiveness of all IT operating systems in your business
For large firms, it is not unusual to find an in-house IT team responsible for software testing and security. However, full-time salaries for highly qualified IT engineers are a major cost. The alternative is to employ a software engineer on an ‘as-and-when-needed’ basis, which is where Netfully, a Dublin-based software development company in Ireland can provide expert help and save you a great deal of money.
Software testing of existing systems is a safety measure to ensure that all code currently being used will continue to achieve the results it was originally written for.
Software testing is also a good way to check if any IT system is state of the art, that it is as up to date as possible.
Software testing of new programs requires highly experienced software engineers who are sufficiently well trained to test newly developed software withing a current operating system, but without compromising its operational capacity. Often referred to as Beta testing, this form of software testing aims to identify any bugs and glitches within any new program and iron these out before the system becomes fully operational.
Software testing is essential, especially for newly created software, such as an app. Not only do we check for full functionality and bugs, but where appropriate, we seek feedback from those who are directly affected by any changes. This can be members of your staff, or it can be potential customers/clients. Feedback is invaluable for ensuring that new software achieves exactly what was intended in the development stage, and ideally exceeds expectations.
Here at Netfully we tend to adopt the latter approach and operate in a proactive as opposed to reactive manner. In today’s IT-dependent business world, one small glitch can have a catastrophic financial consequence. The solution is to regularly check your software for glitches and potential problems.
If you are not sure what you need where software testing is concerned, the best thing to do is give us a call or drop us an email, and let us know what areas of IT in your business might be a cause for concern and we can guide you from there.
