Data-Driven Risk-Based Software Testing



Risk-based testing models are founded on prioritization of functional tests based on their likelihood of failure, the importance of the functionality and the weighted impact to the business if a failure were to occur. While the merit of this model is proven, it overlooks two vital factors – the structural quality of the system under test and the degree to which complex system objects and transactions have been changed in the development cycle. Join this discussion on how a more data-driven approach to risk-based test strategy is possible. Introducing intelligence about the software system to develop an informed testing strategy can dramatically improve test effectiveness and system stability and security. Learn how the early identification of system-level weaknesses and areas of high complexity can improve test efficiency while expanding coverage.
