Difference between System Testing and System Integration Testing:

1. Integration testing is a testing in which individual software modules are combined and tested as a group while System testing is a testing conducted on a complete, integrated system to evaluate the system’s compliance with its specified requirements.

2. Integration testing is testing the interface between the modules; it can be top down, bottom up, big bang while System testing is testing the end to end business scenarios in the environment which is similar to production environment.

3. System testing will be conducting at final level while Integration testing will be done at each time of module binding or a new module need to bind with the system.

4. System testing is a high level testing while Integration testing is low level testing. In simple words on completion of integration testing, system testing started not vice versa.

5. Test cases Integration testing are created with the express purpose of exercising the interfaces between the components or modules while test cases for System testing are developed to simulated the real life scenarios.

6. For Example if an application has 8 modules. Testing the entire application with all 8 modules combined, we call it System testing and if application interacts with some other applications (External systems) to retrieve or send data, to test with other application and external system or any other module we call it Integration testing or system integration testing.
