Crowdsourced Testing for Enterprises: Experiences
— Crowdsourced testing is an emerging phenomenon in software testing which utilizes benefits of crowdsourcing for software testing. It brings cost and quality advantage with faster delivery of software products. Among all the software development activities, testing is one of the primary activities considered for crowdsourcing. Certain types of testing demand for testers from diverse ethnicity, culture, or geography; crowdsourced testing has become a viable option to address such needs. This paper presents some of the initial attempts done at Accenture to adopt crowdsourced testing. We present some of the software development projects where testing had been crowdsourced using a crowd based platform and yielded promising results. We also showcase how crowd wisdom, gleaned through a sentiment analysis performed on the users’ feedback, have helped in improving software. Keywords—crowdsourcing; testing; software development
