Software Testing Outsourcing - ‘How to Guide’

February 2 2021, 06:45am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Software testing outsourcing consists of various sets of activities performed by independent software testing outsourcing companies or third party or testing firms where they are not involved in the entire software development process except for testing.

If you set up a new software testing company in your region and you test any client’s application from your team with the least knowledge and experience, then it will cost not only you but also users who are trusting the application and give their sensitive information in it because hackers find weak spots or weaknesses in the app to commit the cybercrime. According to Business Insider, India, the increasing cyber crime incidents cost the world economy over $1 trillion, or more than 1% of global GDP, which is up more than 50% from a 2018 study that put global losses at nearly $600 billion, revealed by leading cyber security firm McAfee.

monkey testing in software testing

Monkey testing is a type of technique in software testing where users test the software by providing frequent and random inputs to check the behavior of an application.

Now, consider a scenario where a monkey is given a computer system with the keyboard. We are not expecting the Monkey to use the system as a software professional in this condition. Monkey will start hitting the keyboard keys many numbers of times and may input any combination of characters without knowing the correct input which should be given to the system application. Testers also perform monkey testing in the same way without any specific plan.

While doing a monkey testing similar task is executed by the tester. Manual testers gets the power with this technique for testing and boosting the application in their own style, by providing invalid inputs to the system which may be very large or may contain special symbols or characters and any such combinations which may crashes the system, so as to make the application more robust and stable for future.

third party software testing services

Do you want to use an application which is slow, insecure, and less user-friendly with poor functionality? The answer would always be a No. Due to high competence and hurry of releasing the product into the market, organizations tend to compromise with software quality which results in decreased customers and sales.

In today’s era, software quality is of utmost importance. Hiring an outsourced third party testing team is the practice of handing over the application to be tested to an independent testing company or a third party testing group for testing all the major aspects of the application in terms of performance, functionality, security etc. 

Outsourcing provides considerable revenue gains, increased product quality, high efficiency and productivity of a company. There are many studies that reveal the fact ‘Half of the development effort is spent on testing’, therefore, outsourcing relieves the companies from expensive functions thereby reducing the operational costs.

Benefits of Hiring a Third Party QA team:

1. Availability of Wide Range of Resources and Tools

2. Incorporating Best Practices
3. Faster Time to Market
