Smartphones, smart speakers, smart cars, smart coffee makers... the list goes on. It seems like everything around us is coming to life and getting intelligent. And though the sci-fi genre thrives on our ever-present fear of a hostile robot takeover, smart devices are anything but dystopian—they’re actually here to make our lives easier, so we can spend more time on the important stuff, instead of tedious busywork.
To butcher a racing analogy: there is as much time to be saved in avoiding the brakes as there is in flattening the accelerator. Android automation testing itself will save developer-hours on the release cycle, but to really get to market faster, we need to implement the kind of Agile testing environment that prevents delays and slowdowns.
Just like in auto racing, our Android automation testing is about achieving balance between speed and overall performance—or in our industry, between speed and quality.
Regression testing keeps you on track as your web application evolves. This process of checks and balances offers reassurance that the software improvements you have made are going to translate into a better user experience. You cannot innovate without risk, but regression testing balances out that risk.
That is why choosing the right automated regression testing tools for web applications is so critical.
Collaboration software are crucial in today's interconnected and globalized society. In order to make their software even more beneficial to users, companies are allowing third-party applications to integrate with their collaboration software. Though this is very useful, there are common challenges that can arise when integrating third party apps.
Check out QASource’s latest infographic below to read our expert engineer's tips on how to solve the 3 most common obstacles companies face when integrating third-party applications with their collaboration software:
Digital technology faces its sternest test when it is applied to our health. The benefits of speed, accuracy and automation are balanced against the responsibilities of consistency, reliability and mobility.
Those who work in the medical software domain are charged with walking the line between innovation and regulation. Every potential advance in medical device sophistication faces a gauntlet of regulations before it ever gets tested within the realities of the commercial market.
The internet today is like Pandora's Box. The question here is, "How did the Internet become so powerful?" The answer is with data, and data about data. When you search the internet for something, you are searching data about data. Those searches provide us with useful information only because someone has preserved this information somewhere over the internet, and as this technology advanced, the demand for Big data applications was created.
Software testing consulting services are often the missing bridge between development and delivery. When you engage with QA professionals, you can expect them to round out your internal team and to raise your confidence in what you have built-that it will, ultimately, provide a valued user experience.
A quality QA services provider will work in partnership with you to provide comprehensive test coverage while introducing efficiencies to help you deliver faster, for less.
Agile and offshore are two of the most exciting ideas currently filling the QA space. Both practices offer software developers production efficiencies and comprehensive product advantages that are becoming industry standard.
By combining the two, you get higher-quality results faster, cheaper and with a better focus on the user experience.
That is a lot of promise. Can you really depend on an offshore Agile test automation service to deliver?
As separate development and QA teams merge together to form larger DevOps teams, the Agile process is getting more play than ever. Working in an agile way encourages teams to iterate in parallel-to test code as it’s written, so as to uncover any major problems earlier on in the software development lifecycle. The Agile process was an answer to the slow, outdated Waterfall method, in which products were developed in fits and starts, with various delays and blockages slowing the entire process down.
Manual testing offers you a glimpse into your product’s future, the end-user experience. Automation testing may get things done in a hurry, but only expert human perspective can see how your tests inform and improve your product’s performance in the market.
The process can be labor and resource intensive, but that only means you need to learn how to improve your manual testing process in order to maximize the benefits. Toward that end, we have put together a few pieces of advice that will help you strike the right balance of quantitative and qualitative testing.
