Traditional Software Development Life Cycle is still most popular and used in many software companies. During each phase specialist team member/members are used to fulfill the requirement of user. In the same way the software Testers are also used at various phases depends on the company’s strategies. So this paper is largely focuses on the Software Testers complete environment including its roles, responsibilities and future higher position that pusses by him/her.


Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC),Business and Research document (BRD), User Acceptance Testing (UAT), Engagement Manager (EM), QA (Quality Assurance),


SDLC is a mother of all life cycles related to Software development. Now a day’s many companies are using the different models for creating new software, depends on the time, budget and the resources available. During each phase specialist team member/members are used to fulfill the requirement of user. In the same way the software Testers are also used at various phases depends on the company’s strategies (1). We all know the roles, responsibilities, and higher position of software tester, but considering the current trends and software developments models we try to analyze the newly added terms instead of older once. The main important questions considered in this paper are as follows.

Q.1)Can anybody do testing in the company?

Q.2) Basic qualification criteria defined for Tester by the company?

Q.3) Roles and Responsibilities assign to Tester in the company?

Q.4)Future Journey/Higher Position of Tester?

Q.5) On what basis the Software Company “Ranked the Tester”?

Q.6) what’s the company stands to enhance the knowledge of Software Tester?

Q.7) other than testing which prioritized work is assign to Software Tester?

This paper in organized as follows our work in the context of prior work (Literature review), Next all important findings depends on the seven different above mentioned questions send to different companies and finally involves conclusion and references.


Software testing is a critical element in the software development life cycle and has the potential to save time and money by identifying problems early and to improve customer satisfaction by delivering a more defect-free product. Unfortunately, it is often less formal and rigorous than it should, because of unfamiliar with software testing methodologies, approaches, and tools. This paper mainly focuses on the SAS software for all kind of applications and provides proper training to handle the software. With that described about the software testing concept, roles and responsibility of SAS Professionals [1]. The next paper only focuses on the how we can be able to do testing on the Internet. In this paper roles and responsibility is also mentioned with respect to internet testing only [2]. This paper improves the software quality considering the software management (responsibility), quality assurance and general issues related with software testing [3]. This paper focuses on (AOSE) agent oriented software engineering. The main objective of the paper is to extend the scope and support of role towards testing, thereby the vacancy for software testing perception in the AOSE series will be filled up testing based on the V-Model in order to add the next new component as of Agent-Oriented Software testing in the agent oriented development life cycle [4].


Based on Seven questions related to software tester, send to different companies who work in different environments and try to learn new things. Followings are the questions and the all important reply from the said companies.

Still in many software companies, software tester is treated like secondary team member. But actually this is not a case. This paper largely focuses on the overall working i.e. the roles, responsibility, and future upcoming higher position that software tester might be pusses. While analyzing the complete paper no one treated software tester as a secondary member but as a most crucial part/ member in any software development. This paper based on seven important questions sends to many in fact 20 companies and from the valuable reply paper conclude in the following manner.
