Your test automation approach and metrics should make you feel good about yourself. They are supposed to let you know what is working well within your software development process and what needs improvement. The right approach and metrics will also reassure you that you’ve made the right choice in implementing test automation in the first place.
Financial services applications bear a heavier burden than those of just about any other industry. They must meet regulatory and commercial standards of accuracy and security comparable to the healthcare sector, while needing to meet the speed and usability demands of the online retail industry.
If you have been through the quality assurance process for financial services before, you understand the rigors. If you have not considered outsourcing that process, now is the time.
“I want it all, and I want it now.”
Isn’t that the sentiment you most want to express when you assess your release cycle? After all, you’re just craving quality and speed. One of the biggest benefits of automated API test integration is that you get a quality product quickly. It also lets you stay focused on meeting your own standards for quality, functionality, reliability, performance, and security.
Just how quickly you’ll see those benefits depends on choosing the right partner. But the speed advantage means faster bug fixes and faster time to market for your product. Let’s look at some of the other ways it can help keep your product on schedule and within budget.
Put the pressures of the test cycle out of mind. In order to know why API testing is so important - especially during healthcare application development - you must take a calm step back to consider exactly what that specific testing does for your organization.
Top-quality API testing improves the coverage of your test cycle, saves resources, and creates a faster, more efficient process.
The world today is highly connected through the internet and social media, we are able to stay connected, even if we are thousands of miles away from each other! Our interconnected way of life is not just for social media, it has reached into other aspects of life. This has opened the door for offshore teams-for companies to have teams located in different countries. As amazing as this is, software companies faced some difficulty. In order to meet these obstacles head-on, the Agile methodology was created.
Many top software companies have adopted the Agile methodology because adopting the Agile methodology into an organization yield many rewards. Some of these include higher satisfaction because of more frequent releases, more development time for iterations, the QA team receives access to the software earlier than usual, critical bugs are caught early in the project and stakeholders receive higher visibility.
Now that we all use the internet regularly to communicate in real-time video, often from the other side of the planet, it’s difficult to imagine a service that can’t be outsourced offshore. Even “offshoring” is starting to sound archaic. Technologies like video conferencing and workplace collaboration platforms - along with internationally-understood cross-border business standards - have taken much of the pain out of offshore resourcing.
For many product companies, QA remains a grey area. Maybe there are a few QA engineers onsite, thinly spread over a bunch of different projects. Maybe the developers double up and test as they code. Maybe they use a nearshore vendor that eats up the testing budget, or an offshore provider delivers a bug-ridden product. What is the solution for a company looking to strike a balance between quality, cost and great client experience?
