What is beta testing?

Beta testing is a method where a product’s performance is evaluated in a systematic way by testing the product through a group of beta testers (users) before it is released in the market. The way users interact with the product is properly assessed, so that weaknesses can be addressed in functionality or user experience.

Following are the essential components of a beta test:

1. A well-defined goal: Well-defined goals will go a long way in making the beta testing process a success. Along with a goal, there should be a stipulated timeframe to achieve that goal. According to research, out of 50,000 projects, around 71% failed because they were unable to keep the timeframe intact, went over budget and lastly could not deliver customer and business-specific results. Hence, a well-defined goal along with a plan of action will help in avoiding such pressing issues.
