Alpha and Beta testing concepts are different from Product
based company and a Service based company.

In a Product based company:
Alpha Testing defines as the testing which is done at the
developer's site by the testers.
Beta testing is the testing done by the tester by
generating the customer's environment.

In a Service based company:
Alpha testing is the testing conducted by customers at
Developer's site.
Beta Testing is the process of giving the product to
customers and let them do the testing at their environment.

don?t have any customers as such. U developed ur won
product and sell in open market. Whoever buys ur product is
ur customers. So u usually tries to generate the possible
customer?s environment for testing both Alpha and Beta
