Software Testing: Survey of the Industry Practices

EasyChair Preprint no. 5429

6 pagesDate: April 29, 2021


The objective of this survey was to explore industry practices concerning software testing. We studied software organizations to assess how they test their products and what process models they follow. The data collection was implemented as an online implementation of the survey method. Additionally the collected data was compared to our prior survey study to understand how the industry practices have changed. According to our results, the organizations have shifted towards test automation and more sophisticated testing infrastructure, they apply more agile practices even in the mission-critical software, and they have reduced the use of formal process models.
