In today's world as our lives and livelihood depend largely on the software systems, malfunctioning of these software systems is highly intolerable. Hence, the delivery of high quality software becomes a big challenge for IT industries. However, various strategies are followed by IT industries to deliver a quality product within the estimated time and budget. Software Testing is one of these strategies that contribute towards the quality of the product. The two main approaches of Software Testing are Test Case Based Testing and Exploratory Testing. It has been empirically proved that the defect detection efficiency of exploratory testing is as good as the traditional test case based testing. Hence, this paper aims at finding the factors that influence the defect detection effectiveness of Exploratory Testing.
