Effective use of software testing budget is one of the challenges. Getting more done with fewer resources is ubiquitous, and here are some guidelines to get the most out of your software testing budget. Following are the likely options you will have for your software testing budget: • Hire in-house test engineer(s). • Engage outsourcing vendor(s). • Sign up for on-demand crowd sourced testing service(s).

  • 3. 3 How to get most out of your software testing budget?

Cons: Reporting on regression test cases will lead to productivity loss and in-effective use of the budget. Pros: Outsourced vendor executing regression test cases and reporting on them will be little faster. Cons: It can lead to much communication and management overhead with productivity loss for in- house resources Pros: Executing regression test cases and reporting will be so fast. Cons: Quality of regression test execution results need to be validated which adds additional overhead for in-house resources. Efficiency Pros: In-house resources can spend more time in exploratory testing. Cons: In-house won’t be efficient in finding new bugs because they have to constantly switch between tasks. Pros: Outsourced vendors can find bugs if they perform exploratory testing in addition to regression testing. Cons: If outsourced resources need more handholding it will lead to loss of efficiency of in- house resources. Pros: If your application is simple to understand and use, there are more chances for on-demand crowd sourced testers to find more bugs. Cons: Cost will be a huge barrier, as more resources need to be deployed you can quickly burn out your budget. Read More
