The Importance of Software Testing
Most likely, everyone already made the experience of buying a product online, but unfortunately the purchasing process did not work. This is not only extremely frustrating and annoying for the customer, but also very costly and reputation damaging to the company. A recent, prominent example of software failures would be the Alitalia ticket promotion on Facebook, which enabled thousands of users eventually getting their tickets for free. The Italian airline just wanted to increase their social media presence and promoted a 25% discount on all international flights. However, soon it got to attention that it was now possible to book the flights for free, due to a software mistake.
This of course, is a pleasant situation to customers, but an absolute catastrophe to corporations since they face extremely high losses due to software malfunction. Software testers can spare such negative experiences!
