What is Beta Testing?
Did you know Gmail had a Beta tag for almost 10 years. But why? Is it worth to wait for long period. Definitely, yes. During beta testing, Google was able to identify most serious issues, bottlenecks, and improved the performance of Gmail.
Beta Testing – a test will be performed by the end-users prior to commercial release. Company will deliver the product outside it premises i.e. other than company users to evaluate the product and to feedback elicitation for further improvement. It is the last stage of product development life cycle.
