In this fast paced business world, companies are constantly under pressure to adapt to the changing market demands. Organizations that create software for various purposes have to adopt testing strategies that can ensure that the product is error free and functions perfectly according to the requirements.
Staying competitive in the market is the only means to survive and for that adopting a proven and effective testing methodology is important.One solution that most IT companies are trying is to move from the waterfall model and adopt the agile model. Agile testing is a practice that follows specific incremental model and the software is also developed in rapid and incremental cycles. The process is highly collaborative, iterative and is also focused on the repeatable and rapid delivery of the software.
Agile model offers a framework to the testing team that gives a constant evolving functional and technical landscape that primarily focuses on the delivery of business value. Since the software is tested in increments and then released, there is a need to test often and this helps to detect the bugs early and minimizes risks in the later stages.
In Agile, both the programmers and the testers work as a single team and it is after each development cycle that the software is tested and released for the next stage.
