One of our favorites. Why? Many additional challenges exist that are uncommon or uncritical in desktop or server software.
To name a few: multiple platforms and device fragmentation, differences of user interface designs and user experience, resource-starved devices, various app types with various and our favorite, varying bandwidth, and jitter of various networks.
Ah, web testing. Be it healthcare, fin-tech, gambling, or stock exchange platforms, web-based application testing on desktop and mobile/tablet projects is what we do. Starting from the usability of your product, understanding how each of its components integrates with the system, we open the hood and look at the database, check and manipulate the API or WebSockets, performing security, or stress testing cases against the product is included in our daily routine.
Getting tired of repeating the same manual tests every day?
We have successfully completed various UI test automation projects and can assist in automating your project at any stage. We’ll make sure to avoid manually repeating the same repetitive tasks on each browser out there.
We can also successfully perform complex automation scenarios on your API using our preferred tools, JMeter or Postman!
Performance efficiency (or simply “performance”) is an essential part of providing a “good experience” for users when they use their applications on a variety of fixed and mobile platforms. Performance testing plays a critical role in establishing acceptable quality levels for the end-user and is often closely integrated with other disciplines such as usability engineering and performance engineering.
We are a believer in system tests because we are always concerned with the behavior of the whole system/product. In this case, the testing scope can be clearly addressed in the Master and/or Level Test Plan on this level, thus having a crystal clear results for each release candidate.
Should we ship, or not?
The bread and butter of software testing. We verify all of the documented functional requirements, so you can release better products faster.
The functions that a system, subsystem, or component should be doing, the use case, or the functional specification, is what we validate here.
The functions are “what” the system does!
After a defect is detected and fixed, we re-test the software to confirm that the original defect has been successfully removed. This is what we call confirmation.
Regression testing is when we repeat testing of an already tested program, after modification, to discover any defects introduced or uncovered as a result of the change(s).
Not that we don’t trust our developer friends.
Here comes the geeky part.
Non-functional testing includes but is not limited to, performance testing, load testing, stress testing, usability testing, maintainability testing, reliability testing, and portability testing. It is the testing of “how” the system works.
Who wouldn’t love in getting his hands dirty and doing this? This is what we live for!
Software systems are an integral part of life, from business applications (e.g., banking) to consumer products (e.g., cars). Most people have had an experience with software that did not work as expected. Software that does not work correctly can lead to many problems, including loss of money, time, or business reputation, and could even cause injury or death.
Rigorous testing of systems and documentation can help to reduce the risk of problems occurring during operation and contribute to the quality of the software system if the defects found are corrected before the system is released for operational use.
Software testing may also be required to meet contractual or legal requirements or industry-specific standards.
With the help of testing, it is possible to measure the quality of software in terms of defects found, for both functional and non-functional software requirements and characteristics (e.g., reliability, usability, efficiency, maintainability and portability).
Testing can give confidence in the quality of the software if it finds few or no defects. A properly designed test that passes reduces the overall level of risk in a system. When testing does find defects, the quality of the software system increases when those defects are fixed.
Lessons should be learned from previous projects. By understanding the root causes of defects found in other projects, processes can be improved, which in turn should prevent those defects from reoccurring and, as a consequence, improve the quality of future systems. This is an aspect of quality assurance.
A human being can make an error (mistake), which produces a defect (fault, bug) in the program code, or in a document. If a defect in code is executed, the system may fail to do what it should do (or do something it shouldn’t), causing a failure. Defects in software, systems, or documents may result in failures, but not all defects do so.
Defects occur because human beings are fallible and because there is time pressure, complex code, complexity of infrastructure, changing technologies, and/or many system interactions.
Failures can be caused by environmental conditions as well. For example, radiation, magnetism, electronic fields, and pollution can cause faults in firmware or influence the execution of software by changing the hardware conditions.
