WHAT IS CROWDSOURCED TESTING
Crowdsourced testing (or crowd testing) is a term used to describe the practice of outsourcing software testing to a large group of people located across the globe, also known as ‘the crowd’. It’s an increasing trend in the software development industry, which formerly relied almost exclusively on consultants or smaller internal teams of professional testers.
The major differences between crowdsourced testing and more traditional methods include:
1. The number of testers involved;
2. The structure of each testing phase;
3. The overall impact it has on the progression of product development.
