Technology is booming, and more and more companies are choosing to invest in creating mobile applications. Society is depending on the cloud and applications - these applications are often used and visited more than the average brick and mortar stores. While this is great in terms of technological advancement, it does open the door to those who would take advantage of technological achievements for less than pure motivations.
While change is imminent, normal, and healthy, manual testing isn’t going anywhere. It will be around for as long as the end user-your customers-are human.
Whenever any new feature is added or modified in the application, it raises the chances of breakage in the existing functionality, which might create bad user experience. To verify the application from end user’s perspective, it’s always better to have the application manually tested by domain experts who are able to imagine and execute complex business-specific scenarios (Click to Tweet). This sort of rigorous, critical thinking is uniquely human, and it cannot (yet) be replicated by test scripts.
Many software companies have or are planning to adopt test automation into their QA process, but some automation endeavors are not successful. A common cause of unsuccessful projects is incomplete planning. Check out QASource’s latest infographic below to find steps to reduce your automation backlog and take back control of your automation velocity.
In this interconnected age, API testing is one of-if not the most important form of testing. Testing APIs is quicker than functional GUI testing, ensures core functionality and is easily integrated with GUI testing. As with any endeavor, there are challenges that will arise. Testing APIs is not an exception. Is there a way that software companies can be prepared for when these obstacles occur? Yes, there is. Our expert API engineers have put together a detailed guide with tips to help companies prevent and overcome API testing challenges.
APIs, or Application Program Interfaces, have become an integral way of connecting people, their devices, and the information they need. They allow different applications to interact with one another and transfer data back and forth—they’re the main vein for app integrations and single sign-on functionality, and are essential to the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT).
There are plenty of benefits and advantages to API testing, but the high-level ones that matter most to engineering teams and the larger business are improved test cycle coverage, better Agile processes between dev and QA teams, huge time savings, and the ability to test the application in any core language.
Automation is rapidly changing every industry it touches—especially the software and IT sector. By implementing automation, QA teams can increase their throughput by huge factors, save time, cut costs, and improve the overall quality of the product they ship. With all of these benefits, who would avoid switching over to automation?
Is QA testing necessary for security software? Software QA is absolutely necessary. We are constantly hearing about data breaches occurring seemingly every day, so products and software that can ensure users' safety are in high demand. This surge in demand for security software increases the pressure security product organizations feel as they release new software. Read on to discover how a security company learned that in order to guarantee the safety of users, cybersecurity companies should invest in a QA partner.
As our society becomes more interconnected, testing APIs is critical. Because of this, many software companies are considering or are already implementing API testing into their QA process. Many are also automating their API testing. Since your brand's reputation is at stake, it is imperative that any new endeavor be thoroughly researched. In order to assist you in this, our expert API engineers at QASource have shared and answered the top 3 questions about API testing.
