  • 9. Confidential Types of Testing • User Acceptance Test – UAT testing is the last step of testing, finding defects using a business functional end-to-end test approach. • System Integration Test – SIT testing tests for the defects introduced upon integrating several modules and/or disparate systems. • Functional testing – Testing to determine how the software functions while executing the required use case as intended. • Load testing – Assessing the acceptability of the software’s performance under varying operational conditions, such as number of users, number of transactions, and so on, while the configuration remains constant. • Stress testing – Testing the software’s performance when abnormal or extreme conditions are encountered, such as diminished resources or an extremely high number or users. • Benchmark testing – Assessing system performance against a known standard (e.g., existing metrics, standards, and measurements). 9 High Productivity Fixed Price On Time Within Budget Defined Processes Metrics
