Offshore Software Testing Pitalls
There are numerous pitfalls associated with offshore software testing. Many of those same pitfalls can be attributed to outsourced software testing as well. It isn’t the distance or geographic location that matters, it’s the communication patterns and software testing expertise that makes a difference.
The biggest pitfall in offshore software testing is under communicating or over communicating. The best communication pattern is the one that your current team works with. You should expect that an offshore software testing provider match your communication patterns. The second biggest pitfall is lack of expertise in software testing. Software developers seldom make outstanding software test engineers. You should expect that your offshore software testing consultancy provide trained, experienced and managed software test engineers – not just the “B” Team that wasn’t good enough to write software!
