What is software? Why should it be tested?

     Software is a series of instructions for the computer that perform a particular task, called a program.

The two major categories of software are system software and application software.

The system software is made up of control programs.

Application software is any program that processes data for the user (spreadsheet, word processor, payroll, etc.).

    A software product should only be released after it has gone through a proper process of development, testing and bug fixing.

Testing looks at areas such as performance, stability and error handling by setting up test scenarios under controlled conditions and assessing the results.

This is why exactly any software has to be tested.

It is important to note that software is mainly tested to see that it meets the customers’ needs and that it conforms to the standards.

It is the usual norm that software is considered of good quality if it meets the user requirements.
