Importance of RPA in the Healthcare Industry

January 13 2021, 08:12am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Robotic Process Automation or RPA is a software technology or use of software bots to automate highly repetitive tasks, typically done by experienced workers. According to Gartner, the RPA ecosystem was the flourishing segment of the global enterprise software market in 2018.

Currently, RPA adoption in healthcare is not common yet. Based on the research, the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market is projected to grow $5bn by 2024, and the healthcare figure is also expected to be one of the rapidly-growing markets. This is not surprising because today, healthcare systems produce a significant amount of data and involve various rule-based processes. RPA will be known to reduce healthcare inefficiencies and give better healthcare services to the public.

Importance of RPA in the Healthcare Industry

If you are a healthcare service company, you may deal with administrative tasks and endless paperwork that sometimes make it challenging for you to give the best patient care. To reduce your workload, Robotic Process Automation comes out to do activities of your healthcare system, like:

  • Entering repetitive data.
  • Inventory management.
  • Scheduling appointments.
  • Processing claims and billing patients.
  • Digitizing patient files.

Based on market studies, the healthcare industry spends nearly $2.1 billion each year on error-prone and poorly performed manual tasks. Similarly, insurance companies pay from $6 million to $24 million yearly to address poor data quality issues.

Most Important Website QA Testing Checklist

January 6 2021, 07:44am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

It is necessary to understand that launching a website is not enough if it contains so many errors and gives a poor user experience. To avoid such mistakes, we have prepared a vital website QA testing checklist that you need to know before making your site live. Otherwise, it can cost you many dollars after the launch and maybe not give you the expected results.

A website testing checklist is a pre-planned process or a “to-do” list of activities, in which professionals decide what things need to be tested in the website or web applications. The professionals are the team of developers and quality assurance providers who are very well aware of the testing techniques. Before testing the website, they prepare a checklist to fix the possible defects, deliver the quality to the final product, and ensure to business owners that everything is functional on the website.

The checklist for effective website testing includes:

  1. Functionality Testing
  2. Usability Testing
  3. Performance Testing
  4. Compatibility Testing
  5. Security Testing

Why is API Testing Important?

December 30 2020, 06:34am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

API refers to a set of functions or classes or procedures that define the business logic layer. In other words, the API (application program interface) is a set of protocols, processes, routines, and tools that help to build critical software applications. It gives value to an application and helps people streamline their business processes. API testing services is necessary because if it doesn't work effectively and efficiently, it would be hard to convince your customer to adopt an application. To acquire the quality, instant ROI, time & cost savings, API testing becomes the challenging concept of the chain of software & QA testing to ensure that the digital lives will run seamlessly.

Types of Bugs that One Can Easy to Discover with API Testing:

  • Security issues and multi-threading issues.
  • Unused flags.
  • Duplicate or missing functionality.
  • Reliability issues & performance issues.
  • Response data is not structured accurately (XML or JSON).
  • Improper warnings/errors to a caller.
  • Faulty management of valid argument values.

User interface helps users understand what the business is all about, what various functions are contained in the specific software or application, or how it runs. It is the first thing that attracts users to buy products and services when they find a website very friendly and extremely useful for fulfilling their unique requirements.

Web UI Testing Checklist:
  • Test CSS properties of an element.
  • Test font styles such as font color, font size, and font family.
  • Check whether the label test is clearly readable or not.

  • Check the interlinking of hyperlinking of websites.
  • Check the responsiveness of the website design.
  • Check the formatting, color, and size of the buttons or input fields.
  • Check the usability of an application. For example – the font size used for the content should be accurate for the end-users and the people who read on the website.
  • All the titles & subtitles used in an app should be useful for end-users.
Web UI Testing Tools:
  • Selenium IDE
  • Katalon Studio
  • TestIM
  • Perfecto

Significance of Automation Frameworks in Software Testing

December 15 2020, 06:39am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Test automation framework is a collection of tools used by software testing companies with following proper guidelines and set of rules to develop & design the test cases and test scripts, including preparing for the test recording.

Various types of automation frameworks are available to test different mobile, web & desktop-based applications on distinct testing platforms, servers, operating systems like Mac OS and Windows, etc. The rules that are developed for the test automation framework can be coding standards, processes, practices, concepts to handle the test data or safely store the test results. It allows us to test any business niche’s application with automated strategies. It includes several functions from test data, libraries to reusable modules for performing numerous test automation services such as functional testing, unit testing, smoke testing, integration testing, and regression testing.

 Types of automation framework in testing:

  • Linear Scripting Framework
  • Modular Testing Framework
  • Keyword-Driven Testing Framework

How To Keep Your Business Safe with Cyber Security Testing?

December 8 2020, 09:16am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Cyber threats are common in every business. But, we can’t sit hand in hand. Then, how can we protect the critical data of our business from vulnerable attacks?

You can consider cyber security testing that helps to eliminate the risks, threats, any glitches from the software application and protects malicious attacks that hackers commit in the digital world.

Penetration testing is also called ethical hacking or pen-testing. That is the practice of testing a network, computer system, or web application to detect security loopholes that an attacker could misuse.

Several Types of Penetration Testing

Three types of Penetration Testing are very popular and are considered by companies to fulfill the cyber security testing standards of different business niches.

  • White Box Penetration Testing
  • Black Box Penetration Testing
  • Grey Box Penetration Testing

Cyber Security Test Tools:

There are numerous types of cyber security testing tools. e.g.

# Metasploit

# Wireshark

# Netsparker

# Grabber

What You Need To Know About Data Crunching?

November 23 2020, 07:18am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Data crunching is a method that is used to cover the analysis of data and make useful decisions from the vast amount of data and information (big data) if possible. It also refers to the early phase of data processing in which fresh data sets or disorganized data sets are crushed to meet proper research and exploration. It includes planning, system modelling, or application that is being used. Data is everywhere, and it is sorted, processed, and maintained in a structured form before performing iterations or running algorithms. The data which is already processed and imported into one system known as the crushed data.

Why Need of Data Crunching Techniques:
You can consider data crunching for the following situations:

  • If you have a lot of data and there are too many complications, you can then break that data into the available list and represent in just a few lines.
  • If unit testing gives you aggression while producing the correct output, you can think of data crunching and perform the process in many cases.
  • When the enterprise-scale infrastructure doesn’t support well or when it is impossible to make the system compatible with hundreds of thousands of servers.
  • If the issue occurs due to the speed of the disk, your network, or database, on that point, you can consider the basic program rather than the trickiest codes.
