Testing at its crude form is seen as inputting some values in an app and verifying if results are OK. But at its peak of maturity (say UAT), it requires a high level of understanding of the business process and perform testing of IT apps to verify a business process. Hence it gives a much more importance than a pure developer role which does not require so much of business process knowledge.
What say? Very Happy

I second you on this.
Software Testing is requires same amount of skills as the developers, we have to go through same SDLC phases. The developers write code, we write our test scripts. we are one step ahead of them as we execute them as well.

Software testing is equally important and should not be seen as secondary thing.

Awaiting responses...

Yeah true.. apart from our involvement in the various phases, we are more informed on the Business and the Domain Knowledge fronts. Also, we have to look at the aplication from the client/user perspective in addition to a tester's perspective.

Software testing can never be secondary, casue we are the ones who make sure that the application actually does what it was built for!!!

Today, software has grown in complexity and size. The software product developed by a developer is according to the System Requirement Specification. Every software product has a target audience. E.g. a video game software has its audience completely different from banking software. Therefore, when an organization invests large sums in making a software product, it must ensure that the software product must be acceptable to the end users or its target audience. This is where Software Testing and we Test Engineers come into play. Software testing is not merely finding defects or bugs in the software, but it is the completely dedicated discipline of evaluating the quality of the software. We test the software and assure its quality to the end users. A well tested software assures the client of his MONEYs worth.
