If the software is Application then Alpha testing will be done.
Alpha Testing:
If the testers and real customers combinedly
test the software in development site then it is called
Alpha testing.

If the software is product then Beta testing will be done.

Beta Testing:
If the testers and model customers combinedly
test the software in customer site,then it is called Beta
testing.

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.

Note:
Simple fact, if ur company is Product based company, u
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


Correct me if I m wrong!!!

Alpha Testing

Tested at developer site by customer.
Developer "looks over shoulder" and records errors & usage
problems.
Tests are conducted in a controlled environment.

Beta Testing

Conducted at one or more customer sites by end user of
software.
Live application environment cannot be controlled by
developer.
Customer records all problems encountered and reports to
developer at regular intervals.

Alpha testing-- Simulated or actual operational testing by
potential users/customers or an independent test team at
the developers'site, but outside the development
organization.

Beta testing--operational testing by potential and/or
existing users/customers at an external site not otherwise
involved with the developers, to determine whether or not a
component or system satisfies the user/customer needs &
fits within the business processes. Beta testing is ofen
employed as a form of external acceptance testing for off-
the-shelf software in order to acquire feedback from the
market.
