Owing to the huge surge of software and apps in the market, acquiring customer loyalty is very difficult. With abundance of choices available, users discard the software which does not work as per their requirements. It has therefore become paramount for software vendors to have rock-stable and quality products – available within right time and right budget. Needless to say, testing processes decide the effectiveness and quality of the product.
Test Planning and Execution
Having a systematic approach to testing is very important for overall quality of the product. Our methodical approach to functional testing involves: Test requirements gathering (to clearly understand and define the testing requirements for the application), Test Planning and Strategy (to define roles and responsibilities, test environments and testing schedules), Test Execution (to formulate a flawless test execution mechanism along with tools and test data) and Test Result Reporting (to provide a transparent visibility about the overall health of the product to various stakeholders in the organization).
Agile Functional Testing
For software products developed with Agile methodology, testing is no more a phase in the end but it is integrated in the complete development lifecycle and needs to follow the same methodology. It means test early and test in iterations. The testing efforts are optimized to align with the frequent release cycles. In such situation, we follow Exploratory Testing (to ‘explore’ missing features and opportunities to improve) and Automation Testing (to expedite the testing efforts) to align the testing efforts with Agile software development.
Functional Test Automation
Automation is central to our testing methodology. We analyze and institutionalize testing scope for test automation in the planning phase itself along with test plan preparation. Based on the analysis, we build a scalable automation framework with reusable libraries that can help in improving the overall product quality and faster time to market. Our scriptless test automation approach helps in quick creation of automation framework which is independent of user interface. The automation framework development goes hand in hand with the software development and is ready to be used right from the initial stages of testing.
