Data has become an essential part of every industry, organization and individual. With the advent of social media, the data is growing exponentially and needs to be managed so that it can be stored and retrieved quickly for faster processing. Here, 'Big Data' is a term used to identify the datasets that cannot be processed using traditional computing techniques. New technologies are required to store unstructured large datasets and processing methods. In this newsletter, we bring you the concepts that help us to understand the tools/techniques used to manage Big Data so that you can employ the right kind of tool as per your testing requirements.
Emerging of new technologies or changes in existing technologies always bring new challenges in Performance testing. This time around we have evaluated tools & extracted some useful information that can help in conducting performance testing of challenging technologies such as Socket applications & Video streaming.
We continue to support our community with useful tips & knowledge base. Keep exploring more on performance testing with our quarterly performance testing newsletter.
Device fragmentation is a key factor in designing the scope of device matrix for QA plan. Mobile app engineering teams keep a continuous watch on the market trends for this purpose. QASource's Mobile QA Group analyzed market statistics from various sources: Statista, IDC, comScore, Gartner and identified suggestions in this quarter's Mobicast newsletter. Hope you find these suggestions helpful in deciding what can be an ideal device matrix for your QA plan. We welcome your inputs to these knowledge updates and would be happy to take this as a continuous discussion to help our software engineering community.
As new set of configurations are released by different vendors from time to time, it becomes important to ensure end user experience is consistent across different platforms/configurations. Additionally, responsive applications are growing in the market which has increased the requirement of testing apps on variety of devices. So this time we have tailored our tool evaluation to support automation of applications on multiple platforms and its responsiveness.
Timely execution of performance testing helps in identifying performance issues at an early stage. The best way is to run performance test suite whenever a new build is deployed. This time we came up with JMeter, Jenkins integration guide and tips to improve web page performance. Keep exploring more on performance testing with our quarterly performance testing newsletters.
In Mobile app development, one of the key challenge is creating and maintaining cross-platform mobile apps in a cost-effective manner. This challenge may continue to exist in this new year 2017. QASource Mobile QA Group went window shopping this New Year and has identified an A-Z options of Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Tools that may trend in the year 2017.
Service providers are coming up with new trends in desktop applications which indicates that "desktop applications aren’t dead, they’re more than alive" and the scope of desktop application automation is growing. Our R&D team has spent time in evaluating tools and technologies to automate desktop application and therefore, came up with this newsletter which can help you to stay ahead with the latest trends in desktop application automation.
Establishing a performance baseline for database transactions and evaluating the database to support additional load is a challenging task for every Performance testing engineer. This time around we have taken up this task & came up with this newsletter which can help you in conducting Database Load Test with ease.
We continue to support our community with useful tips & knowledge base. Keep exploring more on performance testing with our quarterly performance testing newsletters.
Mobile app development continues to be one of the fastest growing domains. QASource Mobile QA Group brings Mobicast newsletter for quarter 2 highlighting the latest updates of mobile QA community. We welcome your inputs to these knowledge updates and would be happy to take this as a continuous discussion to help our community.
Modern applications are built on a tangle of technologies that have been developed over time and then haphazardly pieced together. Every piece of application more specifically web applications stack, from HTTP requests to browser-side scripts, comes with important yet subtle security consequences. Security testing is therefore a very important part of testing applications. Application security testing should address all the measures that needs to be implemented throughout the entire software development life cycle, so that vulnerabilities may be addressed in a timely and thorough manner.
SHIELDCAST: The quarterly security Newsletter from QASource; delivers the best practices, latest updates, tips and the knowledge required for security testing of applications: be it Web, Mobile or Desktop.
Our bloggers are the test management experts at QASource. They are executives, QA managers, team leads, and testing practitioners. Their combined experience exceeds 100 years and they know how to optimize QA efforts in a variety of industries, domains, tools, and technologies.
