Explain software testing benefits to the executives: Podcast
According to software testing expert Scott Barber, executives often see the testing side of software development as more than a failure -- to them, it's reached epic proportions. So why do executives see testing as, in Barber's words, "#EpicFail"? Barber says it all comes down to accounting.
In this podcast from the recent Software Test Professionals (STP) conference in San Diego, Barber explains #EpicFail in detail, and why executives write testing off as being "all overhead."
Tune in now to learn how to validate software testing to executives by tying software quality with increased revenue. Get advice from Barber on how to strike a balance between the testers' desire to make the best possible quality software and the executives' desire to make sure the company turns a profit and the shareholders stay happy.
