Testing software can seem like a daunting task: ensuring that your product is delivering value to your customers and meeting your business’ requirements, as well as making any necessary adjustments without reducing the user experience, can be challenging.
Testing has a huge impact on a number of different roles, making it especially important to ensure that the process is streamlined to be as efficient as possible, and reducing time to implement improvements to the software. It’s easy to think of software testing as breaking products into pieces, but the main responsibility of a software tester is to build a better product.
A software tester is an advocate for the user experience: ironing out bugs and ensuring all pieces of the system are working as they should. A software tester’s ultimate goal is to ensure that the customer’s expectations and reality connect to deliver the best possible experience.
Testing is about mitigating potential risks by finding problems before releasing a product. This means that the customer doesn’t find a flaw in your software, that could have been prevented by testing, lending a higher level of credibility to your business.
Software testing is vital to deliver the best possible customer experience ensuring your product is high quality and adds value to your audience, and business. It is important that the team member responsible for testing is equipped to perform their duties with a sound base of knowledge.
Improving your existing team’s knowledge with updated practices in the industry, as well as providing a recognised qualification and certification, adds an extra layer of certainty to the process. An apprenticeship provides a strong foundation to elevate existing expertise to the next level and streamline software testing processes to new levels of efficiency.
