Why Software Testing Is Very Important For Banking Applications

Quality assurance and Software testing play a vital role in assuring the quality of banking application.  Both testers and developers of financial applications should have a good understanding of finance and complete domain knowledge as well.

Any financial error is always the critical one. Workflow of every Financial Application is always going to be complex. There is no association which will tolerate any financial bug or error in their application. This is the part where an association needs quality assurance and software testing for banking applications.

Most of the financial applications have different QA and software testing necessities. A tester should have a proper domain knowledge in which the financial application is based on. For Example, processing insurance claims, online/mobile banking, trading accounting etc.

A tester can only proceed with testing activities if he/she has a good knowledge of the flow.

Real-time on-demand medical assistance is a new influential shift in the healthcare segment. Although, the basic idea of home healthcare is changing in an overall manner the way healthcare industry functions, which expects convenient, easy, user-friendly and quick access to healthcare. Home healthcare is also a growing trend and it is expected to grow more in the upcoming years.

Check some of the most important reasons for comprehensive testing which can innovate the healthcare with QA.

Check Out The Basic Cloud Load Testing Strategy To Enhance Your Business

October 26 2018, 11:46am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

cloud load testing strategies

Cloud offers a virtual pool, which has infinite resources for computing, storage and networking resources where applications can be scaled as per client’s needs. But while using any cloud-based service we need to carefully look upon quality, security, latency, reliability, bandwidth etc.

While performing cloud load testing, we need to keep three major points in mind:
  1. How will the application behave in front of the expected users load?
  2. What is the point of users load that will break your application?
  3. Will the application be able to scale up to the expected future capacity?

Why Load Testing?

Load testing helps pinpoint and diagnose problems that affect an application’s performance, scalability, and reliability. There are many kinds of load testing, each of which addresses a specific problem area.

types of user acceptance testing

User Acceptance Testing is a phase of software development in which the developed software is tested in the real environment by the end users. The process is to verify the intended functionality of the developed system on the end user’s perspective emulating real-world scenarios.

In short, User Acceptance Testing is the process of checking that developed software works for intended users. This may be easy to hear at first, but, practically it is not.

Types of User Acceptance Testing

Following are the types of User Acceptance Testing:

  1. Alpha & Beta Testing
  2. Contract Acceptance Testing
  3. Regulation Acceptance Testing/Compliance Acceptance Testing
  4. Operational Acceptance Testing
  5. Black Box Testing

What are the Major Responsibilities of QA

Thinking of QA team we get reminded of the traditional ways where developers would first build a specific feature completely and only then pass it on to QA to make it “Tested OK“.

But old is not always gold and hence the traditional methods changed for good. Agile methodology introduced QA with a versatile and dynamic role in the software development process to ensure that top-notch quality is achieved along with meeting the client’s acceptance criteria.  

There are responsibilities to be fulfilled by a tester in order to provide the clients/end users with a quality product whilst staying in an agile environment, some of which are: 

1. Stay alert in planning sessions:

QA needs to actively participate in planning sessions bright from the point of outset to bring and maintain sync between developers and end users.

2. Automate and speed up testing:

They can easily create automated test scripts out of user stories and can utilize the development phase to reduce testing time and time to market.

Why You Should Consider Stress Testing For Your ERP System?

September 26 2018, 13:13pm

Why You Need to Stress Test Your ERP System Before Live?

ERP testing done in isolated situations with small subsets of the population are not productive for demonstrating where an ERP framework is performing inadequately. By doing this step wrong, genuine generation esteems and situations are underrepresented bringing about frameworks that may perform ineffectively once going live. It is critical during any ERP usage to schedule, coordinate and execute a stress test. Items within this test should include

Test automation helps cover speedy test cycles, including setup and relapse testing. In spite of the fact that test mechanization isn’t the main arrangement, there are numerous intense approaches to choose the correct system or instrument for your business forms. Some of them include:


  • The right automation tool selection.
  • Test cases covering whole application.
  • A seller who can immediately refresh with the most recent arrivals of testing.

It is critical during any ERP usage to schedule, coordinate and execute a stress test. Items within this test should include:

1. Planning and Co-ordination: Set time aside to plan and document to what extent your testing will be, what every particular client will do, kinds of exchanges and gear utilized, and your normal outcomes. Plan for inability to happen, along these lines you can be set up to overcome what may sensibly turn out badly later on.

2. Communicating Effectively: Allow for an open line of correspondence for all clients required amid the span of the test. Assign a stress test manager to answer and log client questions on the off chance that they emerge.

Benefits of Outsourcing Quality Assurance and Software Testing Services

September 11 2018, 10:09am

third party software testing services

Do you want to use an application which is slow, insecure, and less user-friendly with poor functionality? The answer would always be a No. Due to high competence and hurry of releasing the product into the market, organizations tend to compromise with software quality which results in decreased customers and sales.

In today’s era, software quality is of utmost importance. Hiring an outsourced third party testing team is the practice of handing over the application to be tested to an independent testing company or a third party testing group for testing all the major aspects of the application in terms of performance, functionality, security etc. 

Outsourcing provides considerable revenue gains, increased product quality, high efficiency and productivity of a company. There are many studies that reveal the fact ‘Half of the development effort is spent on testing’, therefore, outsourcing relieves the companies from expensive functions thereby reducing the operational costs.

Benefits of Hiring a Third Party QA team:

1. Availability of Wide Range of Resources and Tools

2. Incorporating Best Practices
3. Faster Time to Market

Data Integrity Definition- How To Enforce It In Databases

August 30 2018, 12:16pm

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Enforcing Data Integrity Into Databases

Database Integrity is a central underlying aspect or term in the implementation of database technology. Having faith in the data correctness is a prerequisite for using the data in business, research or decision-making applications. So it’s for sure that the factors of ensuring database security and reliability cannot be ignored. One also has to consider the use of error checking and correction codes to deal with the integrity issues and improve the performance of database systems.

Enforcing Data Integrity in Databases

Basically, there are four primary types of data integrity: entity, domain, referential and user-defined.

1. Entity Integrity ensures a table does not have any duplicate rows and is uniquely identified.

2. Domain Integrity requires that a set of data values fall within a specific range (domain) in order to be valid.

3. Referential Integrity is concerned with keeping the relationships between tables synchronized.
