Some of the major drivers which determine a product’s success in today’s market include a feature rich design, faster production and time to market times, and global outreach. As a result, global enterprises and businesses are always on the lookout for innovative testing and development methods in order to take charge of the above-mentioned driving forces. One such innovative technique which is gaining quite some popularity nowadays is Crowdsourced testing.
This emerging software testing method leverages the power of the cloud and the efficiency of crowdsourcing to deliver immense benefits and efficiency to the software testing process. As compared to traditional testing methods, managed crowd testing is carried out by a large number of different testers simultaneously, thereby allowing the software to be tested under realistic conditions which in turn makes this method a reliable, fast, and cost-effective method of testing.
