Abstract: Since the evolution of software, it has laid its impact in all domains of operations. Therefore, one of most important criteria for software industries to survive is development of high-quality software, which can completely satisfy customers. To achieve this goal, it becomes mandatory for the software organisations to adopt themselves to the market dynamics. The objective of this paper is to analyse the effectiveness and efficiency of testing applications in cloud. This paper puts forth a case study through a comprehensive analysis conducted on sampled data from healthcare and telecom domain. Investigation indicates that testing applications in cloud model is good practice against conventional mode of software testing. The results also depict that testing applications in cloud environment improves performance of various parameters of testing process. Furthermore, this inference paves way to carry out further research to formulate effective strategies to test applications in cloud.

Keywords: software engineering; software testing; cloud computing; regression testing; software quality; total customer satisfaction.
