Benefits of Outsourcing Quality Assurance and Software Testing Services

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

Business Benefits of Test Automation In Terms of ROI

August 21 2018, 11:29am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

test automation benefits

Many organizations consider automation testing as a vital step in establishing a mature Q&A program. But, manual testing can never be ruled out completely.

Automation Testing Improves Business Results In Three Ways:

Shorter Time To Market, Increased Test Efficiency And Increased Test Effectiveness.

Testing efficiency is the average number of test cases you can run for an hour of tester time. High efficiency of testing reduces product development time and costs.

Testing effectiveness is rate at which testing reveals bugs before your application are released in the market. Increased effectiveness reduces the costs through a better product.

Application must be tested before release and reducing your time to market for benefits. Manual testing replacing with automated testing can cut time from elapsed testing time.

ROI Formula:

The ROI for test automation can move into positive zone depending upon the number of regression cycles required for the lifetime of the application.

ROI for test automation can be simply calculated by the below formula:

Return of Investment(ROI) = (Manual testing cost — Automation cost)/Automation cost

Why We Need Automation Testing Framework?

August 17 2018, 10:53am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

why we need test automation 

The simplistic answer for this is to get maximum efficiency and to utilize the resources in a complete way. Let us first discuss why we automate our software product.

Automation Testing is necessary to save the rework in regression testing and for saving the time to fill multiple page lengthy forms.

By automating our products we can be assure of its already fixed functionality and also merge modules to skip the execution time of a process.

While planning for automation of a software product, its framework design is as necessary as while building a shopping mall its blue print is necessary.

Framework design needs to collect and specify all the requirements that are mandatory for automating a software product. The requirements should be analyzed and freeze on the basis of their feasibility.

There may be possibility that some of the requirement cannot be automated and no framework can be created for these requirements.

List of Widely Used Robust Test Automation Frameworks and Its Types!

May 3 2018, 07:13am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

test automation framework
Framework is a combination of test-data handling, coding standards, and object repository management that are followed during automation scripting which results in producing beneficial outcomes such as re-usage of the same code in multiple projects, higher portability and decrease the script maintenance cost etc.
Types of Automation Frameworks:
# Test Library Architecture Framework: Test scripts are initially created using "Record & Playback" method. After that tasks inside the scripts are grouped into Functions. There Functions are called by main text script which is called Driver in different ways to create test cases.
# Data Driven Testing Framework: Test case logic resides in Test Scripts and Test Data is separated and kept outside the Test Scripts in this type of framework. Test Data is read from external files such as Excel Files, Text Files, CSV Files, etc. and are saved in the Test Script as variables.
# Keyword Driven Framework: The Keyword-Driven consists of data tables and keywords, and is not dependent on automation tool for execution.

Helpful Ideas To Explore the Types of Requirements for Software Testing

April 27 2018, 10:17am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

Software Testing Service Provider India
Testers need to make sure that they are taking care of all types of requirements. By all types of requirements, it means direct (explicit), indirect (implicit), and latent (extra) requirements.
 
Let throw some light on the types of requirements and their details:
 
1. The explicit requirements noted down(Direct requirements): This kind of requirement is noted down directly from the client discussion and converted into the document of understanding. These are generally shared with the team working on the project, and the designs, wireframes and scenarios are made based on the provided details.
 
2. The implicit requirements(Indirect but obvious requirements): This kind of requirement is generally not provided in the documents, but are obvious requirements expected by the client. These requirements can be related to the security of the application, performance of the application, usability of the application, and availability of the application. Say for instance, there is data to be entered for a firm using the fields ‘Employee Name’, ‘Employee ID’, etc.

Top 6 Technological trends in software testing in 2018

March 20 2018, 06:26am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

automation software testing

The software testing community has come through many interesting trends through the year 2017. These trends mainly include the newly introduced practices in software testing. Trends like adopting newer test automation tools & practices and DevOps are found to be usually followed, which in turn has resulted to increase in automation being performed on various web applications. While some tools are still facing issues like managing the environments as well as test data, shortened release schedules and lack of time for proper testing.

  1. Working together with manual & automation tools: It’s true that automating every single thing sounds like interesting and easy for everyone for once, but, in reality automation makes it difficult to face challenges in complex test environments and data and ever shortening delivery cycles.
  2. Emerging mobile test automation: As compared to earlier years, we can clearly see a shift of software world towards Mobile applications, away from web and desktop applications. The same can be said as the reason for the introduction of Test Automation in mobile applications testing in order to shorten time-to-market needs of software organizations.

web application testing services

QA plays a very crucial role in delivering quality software into the market and also helps in organization overall growth.

i) Regression ensures quality in less time: One of the most important methodologies in web software testing is Regression Testing. It a type of software testing which confirms a recent change in code does not affect any existing features.

ii) Automation saves manual time: Test cases can be converted into test scripts(automated) during application development. This helps in increasing overall test coverage along with reducing the manual efforts. It also increases the Reusability of test scripts when the OS or device changes.
