Portability testing is a type of testing in which Software application is installed from one environment to other may be from one platform to another platform with different hardware and software configuration. The whole purpose is to check whether application is able to run and can be deployed in different applicable environment, in order to satisfy business needs of the customer.
If we see in terms of software application, running the whole application is also important to check whether whole of the application functionality is running in different environment. Apart from running the functionality of the application manually, it is also required sometimes to run automation testing suite to check if the application functionality is working fine in different environments.
