Software Testing is the process used to help identify the correctness, completeness, security, and quality of developed computer software. This includes, but is not limited to, the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding errors. Quality can be objectively quantified and scored via an editorial measurement framework characterizing software viability attributes.

There are many attributes to consider when choosing sourcing options, some more obvious than others, such as hourly rate. However, when evaluating the true costs of sourcing, leading organizations also look at other critical factors associated with business-critical projects--such as agility, integration with other operations, security risks, scalability, public image, and business understanding-- that can make all the difference to ensuring successful project outcomes.
A software audit can be either an internal process, executed by an in-house team or consultants, or it can be done externally, by the vendor. If done internally, the results are used by the organization to check what software is installed across the network, how the software is being used and how this usage compares with the entitlements owned by the organization. If you haven’t already been audited—get ready; it’s not a case of if, but when.
