How are we going to define testing is it a process or a act ? Its indeed a very tricky to answer them as both the words addressed indeed gains an importance on its own.
Testing is a process where we follow a set of rules and are guided by a parameters to define them and establish that the findings are matching up to the expectations of the requirements. The primary goal of a Testing Process is to ensure that it meets the business and technical requirements that guides the design and development.
Testing is an act, because only when you act or rather take action on the requirements as described by our customers and do a proper execution of testing against that then we can see the results. It is a continuous action that needs to be performed to ensure that the quality of testing is maintained.
