Would you spend $100 for something that’s only worth $50?
Of course not. On average, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) cost twice as much as software testers. If you’re using them for testing, you’re literally throwing money away. Whether you’re using an ERP system or a business application, maintaining large software systems can be a serious drain on valuable resources. Every time a new update, patch, or release comes out, you have to drop everything while your SMEs spend their valuable time running the same monotonous, repetitive tests on their modules—grinding their productivity to a halt in the process. Using your SMEs for this kind of testing is an unnecessary waste of vital talent.
