Title: Is the future of manual software testing coming to an end?

Manual Software Testing
Introduction to Software Testing
  • Manual Software Testing is one type of software
    testing in which a tester manually execute the
    test cases.
  • The tester does not use any automated testing
    tools. He manually do the testing work.
  • Software may consist of several bugs or errors,
    so the software tester identifies those bugs or
    errors in software.
  • You must test Software before it goes live. It is
    to avoid abnormal behavior of the software.
  • Manual testing requires more effort than
    automatic testing, but still, it should be

Is the Future of Manual Software Testing in
  • History has it then whenever a machine replaces
    humans, thousands of other opportunities crop up
    for the man. However, this requires the man to be
    quick at learning new things.
  • For example, think of the time when computers
    started paving the way in offices and replacing
    traditional processes. But, agile professionals
    who learned the Software and manual software
    testing overcame the threat of losing a job.
  • In recent times, the mobile application and
    Software industry has been experiencing some
    breakthrough technological inventions. It does
    not imply that developers are not required, but
    that manual work is limited.
  • A person testing one product manually might now
    be required to use automated means to check a
    couple of Software.

The Case
  • On paper and in the news, it seems that manual
    testing might not have a bright future. More and
    more companies are relying on Software that is
    way more efficient than humans and can work ten
    to a hundred times faster than us. But, the
    reality is different.
  • Companies providing Software testing services
    always looks for the talented software testers.
  • If you open any job portal, there are many job
    openings for manual testers in such companies
    that offers Software testing services.

Present vs. Future
  • As long as the end-users are humans, it is
    impossible for manual testing to perish. The
    reason is the simple human touch.
  • We do not need to be programmed to find a certain
    type of error. We know what is wrong.
  • For example, the eLearning industry employs Lacs
    of people who create courseware that is tested.
    The end users are students (humans), so a machine
    testing that product might miss important issues
    that a man can easily catch.
  • Entirely Automating testing is not what I
    foresee, but limiting human involvement to
    aspects that Software cannot take care of is a

The Verdict
  • Companies that make use of Software testing
    services are well-aware of the shift that they
    might be required to make in case of business
  • For now, manual testers should not worry about
    job loss but focus on re-skilling themselves.
  • Companies are required to provide cross-training
    opportunities to employees so that they can learn
    whats trending and benefit the company with
    minimum investment. It is a result of saving
    money and effort in hiring individuals from
  • It serves the dual purpose of retaining
    employees, saving oneself from bad publicity from
    firing employees, and benefitting from their
    services with minimum investment.
