How Load Testing Can Be Implementation With Agile Approach?

March 16 2021, 05:06am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Performance is a measure of quality. Your customers expect high performance from your web application. In case of slow response on your site, the customer will feel that your web application is not working correctly.

To understand the bottlenecks that affect the performance of the web applications, product owners must need to go through the performance profile of their applications. To fix the bottlenecks to improve the performance scale and site’s speed, one must consider load testing services within an agile environment.

Load Testing Helps To Identify?
  • The sustainability of the application concerning high user load.
  • The applications’ maximum operating capacity.
  • It helps to understand whether the current infrastructure is enough to operate the application.
  • A number of concurrent users supported by the application or how many users can access the website.
  • Scalability of the application.

Implementation of Load Testing With Agile Approach

One of the primary intentions of Agile is it enables us to manage change effectively in both external and software functionality.

It allows us to streamline the development of quality software. One of the essential factors of an organizational Agile is that it supports teams to produce a usable version. This load testing approach supports you to put tech writers, QA, and Devs on one page, and in the case of performance testing in Agile, it helps you design a resource and make you responsible for the testing. The other fact is all stakeholders, including those who are business members, have an allowance to include in this process.

Role of Artificial Intelligence In Software Testing

March 9 2021, 07:02am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Artificial Intelligence is a diverse field of computer science concerned with developing smart machines able to perform tasks that mainly require human intelligence. AI makes it easier for machines to perform human-like tasks. It allows machines to make adjustments to new inputs and helps them learn from experience.

Due to the demand for automation for the testing processes and solutions in order to give seamless experiences to customers, the growth of the automation testing market will increase with cutting-edge AI technologies for software testing environments. In the coming years, we can see more use of artificial intelligence in software testing due to its capability of reducing the test life cycle. It can be used in several aspects of testing, including functional testing, regression testing, automation testing, and performance testing.

Benefits of AI in Software Testing

AI in software testing aims to make testing more efficient and smarter. Both machine learning and AI use reasoning and problem-solving techniques to improve and simplify the processes of testing.

It saves a lot of time compared to manual testing and supports the teams while focusing on complicated tasks.

 It is essential to choose AI and machine learning for test automation because it gives you more flexibility during the entire testing process.

You can implement more than thousands of test cases in one go, which is honestly not possible through manual testing.

Guidewire Testing: Achieve Higher ROI With Test Automation

February 23 2021, 07:21am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

The growing adoption of interventional radiology techniques has intensified the need for guidewires and is projected to continuously be used in the future. The global market for guidewires is anticipated to register a positive growth outlook, skyrocketing at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast timeframe of 2020-2025. The market is expected to hit a value pool of US$ 2.6 Bn by the end of 2025.

The benefits of Guidewire products are interesting, but we can’t skip the challenges that are introduced by Guidewire too while implementing them. 

For example: 

  • Consistent upgrades in user requirements. 
  • Delays occur in the test execution due to the absence of code development. 
  • Due to no functional and non-functional requirements documentation. 
  • Insufficient processes follow for the QA and there are no proper guidelines in the hand for particular industry verticals. 
  • Less knowledge obtained about QA and the critical factors of the business. 

If there are too many challenges found in the Guidewire suite, there is an urge to resolve the issues with the experienced testing partner, mainly who has a flair for testing and knows how to give cost benefits to insurers while merging a single suite of applications into the Guidewire’s technology platform.

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
  • Data-Driven Testing Framework
  • Behavior Driven Development Framework
  • Hybrid Testing Framework
  • Test Library Architecture Framework

Exploratory Testing- A Comprehensive Guide

November 17 2020, 09:26am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

From QA managers to testers, everyone in the testing team highly uses exploratory testing in agile because it gives them the freedom to investigate, discover, and
learn many things while working on any business project. 

Importance of Exploratory Testing in Agile
The agile is new normal for all latest software testing because it includes short sprints of about one month, and the tight deadlines are setting up to complete the
project on-time. Agile plays a vital role in exploratory testing because its focus is to give speedy deliveries and meet consumers' demands in a limited period. For
this, the testers have to understand customers' requirements before using their skills and intuitions for testing.

Popular Exploratory Testing Tools:

  • PractiTest
  • Testpad
  • Test Studio
  • JIRA Capture
  • Session Tester

A Comprehensive Guide To Risk Based Testing

July 22 2020, 05:56am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Risk-based testing is a type of test that is performed based on risk probability. It includes risk management focused on identification, complexity, market robustness, and prioritizing the risks to minimize and manage the likelihood of unpleasant events. Risk-based testing is a useful technique that is implemented to eliminate the failure of the functions and features included in a particular project. With RBT, you can resolve several issues within a short period because the testers already have an excellent approach in their hands.

Importance of Risk Based Testing
Boost Customer’s Attention

The implementation of risk based testing strategy is necessary to analyze the software’s threats better. The motive of any business is to grab users’ attention so that they can further purchase from them. It would be possible when the merchants prioritize the tests and hire the developers to avoid the complications from the projects.

Drive Expected Quality

The primary purpose of using the risk-based testing model is to drive the product’s lifetime quality. With RBT, you can resolve several issues within a short period because the testers already have an excellent approach in their hands, which they use at the time of running tests or flaws discovery. They monitor the risks continuously to produce exceptional results for real-time projects.

Improves testing efficiency

Software testers play a lead role in software development. They communicate with the entire team, know the project requirements, and prepare the specific tests in an agile environment. The quality is highly prioritized by them as they have so many resources, which they very well use to avoid the critical defects.
