In earlier times, most of the IT firms did not identify testing as an independent role during the implementation of the custom off the shelf software (COTS) product. To fit in business needs, packaged/enterprise applications undergo comprehensive customization during implementation, resulting in an increase in testing efforts to maintain quality and validate business specifications.
Some of the Key Testing Challenges of COTS Applications
- Migration and Modernization Issues
- Interoperability and Integration Issues
- Compatibility Issues
- Black Box Base tests on business processes used in the real world environment.
- Lack of Functional & Technical Requirements
Any packaged/enterprise application in complex IT environments, with changing business needs results in QA issues such as scalability, performance, integration, consistency and security. However, to ensure the applications deliver the desired results, organizations lack in adequate testing expertise with respect to test data and test scenarios.
