Key challenges faced by a Tester

 In software testing, there are many QA challenges. With so many different types of software applications out there, there are numerous issues to be overcome by every QA (Quality Assurance) team.

Let’s talk about a few of the common situations faced by just about every software tester and take a look at some solutions that can help improve the quality of your product.

Testing Strategy

In today’s competitive world, enterprises need an effective testing strategy to ensure that their app works well, everywhere all the time. Covering different geographies and configurations for testing applications is challenging for teams that rely solely on a traditional QA approach.

Domain knowledge

Skilled testers with good knowledge of the business domain can help you create more effective test scenarios and scripts. Apart from getting domain specific testing experts on board, you also need to equip them with the right testing tools. The right tools can make it easier for QA teams to execute the project and also delivering results faster.

Changing Requirment 

Requirements can change quite rapidly for a lot of software development teams. Testers must be prepared to adapt to those changes and know what to expect when a build becomes ready for testing. Keeping up to speed requires having a plan for updating test cases and testing the right scenarios.

Verbal and written communication

There’s a common theme when it comes to finding solutions for these challenges, and it’s process planning and communication. Make plans for handling documentation and make sure they are organized and kept up to date. Communicate with the developers, the project team and the release engineers.

These are the kind of challenges that QA faces on a regular basis.

Get used to solving these, then get ready for the next challenge.
