One of the maxims in software testing is that “testing early and testing often” helps avoid the high cost of deploying a software bug. But it’s hard to quantify what that exact cost is because of all of the factors that go into the software development life cycle, including (but not limited to) an organization’s size, the number of customers, and the employees and resources utilized to debug and fix. There are, however, some statistics that we can look at to determine how damaging bugs can be.
