Advantages of Testing in Agile

With Agile being the latest hashtag, more and more organizations and projects are taking steps to adapt the agile software development process. At the same time, most of the teams which are going agile or at least planning to move into the direction of Agile process are still reluctant to include Software Testing on the same page. Benefits of testing to projects are now widely known and all of them apply to Agile projects also. In addition to that, below are some points which can be re-emphasized when talking about the benefits of Testing in Agile.
      Improved Quality
Quality is a wide term and without any doubt the responsibility of whole team which comprises not only testers, but also all other stakeholders. When testing is involved right from the beginning of project, provide valuable inputs to taken required actions to improve the quality of products.
       Saves Resources
Budget – both in terms of time and money is the prime concern of clients and they consider it as main resource.
Early detection of bugs has been the mantra to minimize the effort of fixing the same. Needless to say, that when the test teams are involved continuously, helps the teams to progress in this direction. When there are less bugs in the applications or the products, clients see a drastic improvement in the utilization of their resources – time and money.
       Improved Communication
Effective communication is the key to the success of any Agile project. Making testing as an integral part of the Agile Framework ensures that the team is aware of all(or at least most of them) possible scenarios and thus helps them achieve the target.
Since testers have a different mindset than developers, the whole team can thus work together and collaborate better. Also, the clients then adapt a better picture of the product and understand the details of functionalities rather than being caught in the scenario of coming back with a production issue when they face it.
