Quality assurance compass

When it comes to testing, how do you know when you have tested enough? Well this all depends upon your appetite for risk. If you are risk adverse, you may want to have a very high rate of coverage of test cases to functional points or business processes. If you have a simple solution that is not high risk, you may choose to go with the basics. The key here really comes down to what lasting experience do you want the end user to have and how accurate does the system need to be.

Take for example a banking solution. The finance sector is highly regulated, they have different users with varying capabilities and needs, as a result, test coverage would expect to be high and you would really need to invest in Accessibility, Usability, Performance and most importantly Security Testing. This does not mean that all other testing types are less important, just that these may be an area that you would invest more.

Irrespective of what you are looking to test, it is important that you know what matters for both the business and the anticipated end user.
