Information technology is among the fastest developing fields.
Every day devices and applications for them become more and more complex, sophisticated, multifunctional and user-friendly. Such tendency allows the end-users to be demanding and choosy.
At Present a Common Software User Wonders:
- What program is the most suitable for his or her purposes?
- What program with the required functions is the most secure?
- What application with the needed functionality has the best performance capacity?
- What software producer is the most reputable?
- What is the cheapest program with the best characteristics?
So, modern users want to utilize the best products for minimum price. Such desire is natural and predictable, but it fuels severe competition between software producers on top of everything else.
The existing situation keeps those, who are involved in mobile application testing, desktop testing and web site testing, always under pressure. Project managers are always in a hurry; they want by all means surpass the competitors, make their product superior and available for the users earlier than the others.
Constant hurry leads to overlooking some aspects, deliberate or casual underestimating of risks and allocating less than it should be time on manual and automated testing.
As a result, a software testing company often gives its testers urgent tasks and asks them to work overtime in order to meet the deadline. It’s hard to be under pressure all the time and go on working efficiently. That is why team leads and testers should be able to quickly evaluate the tasks and set priorities. These skills are essential for proper executing any software testing.
