Introduction To Data Masking For Enabling Security And Safety

July 20 2020, 05:34am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Data masking refers to a process of hiding original data with modified content. It is a process of creating a similarly structured but inauthentic version of any organization’s data that can be used for purposes such as software testing and user training. It basically ensures that only those people can see the data who need to see it and ensuring the appropriate time for it.

Benefits of Data Masking 


Data masking is essential in almost all regulatory industries. Personal, identifiable information needs to be protected from overexposure. Hence, by masking data, an organization exposes a certain amount of data only to their testers or database administrators which therefore gives reduced security risk. 


Let's check out the tools, techniques and types of data masking.

Types of Automation Tests You Should Be Aware Of

July 15 2020, 06:16am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Automation testing is a software testing method to run a set of test cases without executing them manually. After executing several sets, we can compare actual test results with expected results. In the automation method, scripted data is executed by testing tools that examine the behavior of software, report outcomes, and compare the results. Different types of test automation can easily execute thousands of different complex test cases during every test run providing coverage that is impossible with manual tests.

Types of Automation Tests

There are different types of automation tests through which you will typically be running more than one set of tests:-

• Layering test types

• Input-output test

• UI regression test

• Unit test

• Integration test

• Code analysis

Importance of Testing Healthcare Mobile Apps

July 13 2020, 05:46am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

We have almost entered in an era where applications monitor our lives.  Starting from a primary BP machine to conventional angiography, we depend upon application and digital devices. This makes testing of healthcare mobile apps more crucial than ever. No one can take the risk of error in healthcare as a single mistake can put multiple lives at stake.

Challenges In Testing Healthcare
  • It requires expertise in testing, and usually, it is high in cost.
  • Testing should be done keeping in mind the safety and regulatory standards- as any error can cause a direct effect on a patient’s life.
  • Testing team needs to be well aware of the various functionalities, clinical usage, and the environment the software will be used for.
  • Cross dependency of software- testers need to ensure that any changes in one component or layer should not lead to side effects on the other.

 Check out the list of the useful tips that can be considered while testing healthcare apps.

End To End Testing- A Comprehensive Guide

July 6 2020, 10:07am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

End to end testing verifies whether the flow of an application is right from the very start to finish and if it is processing as per the expectations or not. It helps to detect issues in sub-systems and increases confidence in the overall software product. Hence, the purpose of End-to-End Testing is to monitor a complete system. 

End To End Testing Process activities:

  •  Thorough Study of end to end testing requirements
  •  Setup of Test Environment and hardware/software requirements
  • Prepare the list of roles and responsibilities for all systems and its  subsystems
  • Testing methodology and standards
  • Tracking of End to end requirements and designing of test cases
  • Record and save input and output data for each system

Testing GraphQL To Leverage API

June 29 2020, 05:57am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

GraphQL is an abstraction layer that grants you to construct queries that approach multiple resources at the backend and accumulate that data well-adjusted into an individual consequential reply. The usage of GraphQL can attribute to lower traffic congestion and accurate and fast applications in the future. So, it becomes crucial to validate GraphQL APIs to ensure that  API consumers access their information efficiently. Automated testing of GraphQL helps in reducing test creation time and improves overall coverage of the back-end. 


Some GraphQL testing tools:

  • Karate
  • EasyGraphQL
  • ReadyAPI

5G Cybersecurity: Are We Prepared?

June 22 2020, 09:20am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

In the coming era, people dream of having autonomous driving, smarter cities, smarter homes, and much more. But, while boasting about the advanced capabilities of 5G network with high speed, increased data rates, low latency, and ubiquitous connectivity, we should also address the potential vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity of 5G Networks is one hot-button issue that is considered a significant threat to the emerging 5G technology, and security testing will play a major role to cater the same. 


Impact of 5G Security:


5G brings along a plethora of benefits like high network speed, improved communication, and seamless connectivity to leverage IoT, and many more. Network security will become crucial with the evolution of 5G in the coming years. To strengthen the 5G security, networks will need high-level encryption, NFV (Network Function Virtualization), network slicing, and Mobile edge computer, and other advanced featured to be implemented. 


Check out the challenges of security testing in the 5G Era.

Software Testing Metrics- The Significance Of Measuring QA

June 10 2020, 05:58am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

A software metric is a measure that lets getting a quantitative value of software specifications. The goal of assessing the software quality is to practice the conventional results for forecasting the financial plan and schedule, estimating prices, testing and QA, restoring, etc. But, the central objective is to measure quality. Tracing key metrics of the QA process helps classify where your team’s time and resources are being cast-off unproductively and optimize accordingly.  Let's have a look at certain important QA metrics that can be practiced to measure the process of software development.

Posted by Claire Mackerras

This time requires the need to keep up with the speed while also meeting increased expectations of quality. Performance testing services here plays a vital role in ensuring the same to identify & eliminate the performance bottlenecks of your software. The main purpose of it is to identify the scope of improvement of the product before it is launched for customer use.


Different quality attributes of the system are measured using performance testing, like speed, stability, and scalability. These attributes help in determining how quickly does the application response, the maximum number that can be handled by the user, and to check if the application performs stably under varying load conditions.


How to do Performance Testing?

  1.  Identify Testing Environment
