Risk: The New Language of eBusiness Testing
Balancing testing against risk in eBusiness and e-commerce applications is essential because we never have the time to test everything. But it's tough to "get it right" with limited resources and the pressures to release software quickly. Paul Gerrard explains how to talk to the eBusiness risk-takers in their language to get the testing budget approved and the right amount of testing planned. Find out how to identify failure modes and translate these into consequences to the sponsors of the project. Using risk factors to plan tests means that testers can concentrate on designing effective tests to find faults and not worry about doing "too little" testing.
