A bug tracking system, also known as defect tracking system, is a software tool that tracks reported programming bugs in software development projects. It might also be regarded as a type of issue tracking system. Database, which is a major component of bug tracking software, records all facts about known bugs. Moreover, a bug tracking system permits administrators to configure the product according to the status, either delete the bug or move the bug to another status.
One of the key factors driving the global bug tracking system market is increased spending in the development of novel software testing programs. A bug tracking system is an integral part of any software testing program. Advanced testing technologies such as automated testing system are expected to bolster the growth of bug tracking software market worldwide. Implementation of bug tracking system in the initial stage itself will reduce the time and cost required to address the issues. This in turn has resulted in the swift growth of global bug tracking software market.
