Testing is a software development stage that checks the correspondence between the product's actual and expected behavior. This stage includes four steps: work scheduling, designing tests, running tests, and result analysis. Quality and reliability of an application depend on the work of a QA team and the way they execute these steps. Testing indicates whether a software solution completes its functions successfully and corresponds to the defined requirements.
QA is performed at each software development stage. This approach allows to detect errors at the initial system design phase and avoid implementing dramatic changes later. Testing helps to develop a product with well-designed and effective software architecture. In the future such systems can be modernized with minimum efforts.
We perform testing at each software development phase. Contact us to:
- Test applications during the development stage. We can help to create a functional product that corresponds to the defined tasks.
- Test the systems that have been already put into service. If flaws are detected, or users report bugs, we will find what exactly should be fixed.
- Switch to outsourced testing. Sometimes it is more cost-effective than having an internal QA team.
There can be no two identical projects, that is why we develop an individual test plan for each one. The test plan is a document that describes all aspects of the upcoming testing: the test object, strategy, criteria, delivery dates, risk evaluation, and so on. Working out a test plan includes six stages:
- Analyzing software and work scheduling.
- Designing test cases.
- Running tests.
- Analyzing results, detecting errors and potential issues.
- Preparing recommendations on improving the product and test package.
- Automating tests to increase productivity.
The team of Applied Technologies performs all types of testing:
Ensuring that a product works as expected according to specified requirements. We test separate software components and the entire system.
Testing functionalities after code changes.
Simulating real-life working conditions to analyze the application's performance and reliability. We evaluate its responsiveness under increasing load, and define the load limit.
Unit and integration testing
Testing units, objects, classes, and other software components. Checking them individually and in interaction.
Testing the usability features and overall GUI functionality.
Studying the product's documentation and verifying its accuracy.
