How to organize a successful software testing process for your product?

Software testing is the process of evaluating and verifying that a software product or application does what it is supposed to do. As well as preventing bugs, reducing development costs and improving performance.

Types of testing used by UBSLogic

We at UBSLogic run many different types of software tests, each with specific objectives and strategies:
Acceptance testing: Verifying whether the whole system works as intended.
Integration testing: Ensuring that software components or functions operate together.
Unit testing: Validating that each software unit performs as expected. A unit is the smallest testable component of an application.
Functional testing: Checking functions by emulating business scenarios, based on functional requirements. Black-box testing is a common way to verify functions.
Performance testing: Testing how the software performs under different workloads. Load testing, for example, is used to evaluate performance under real-life load conditions.
Regression testing: Checking whether new features break or degrade functionality. Sanity testing can be used to verify menus, functions, and commands at the surface level when there is no time for a full regression test.
Stress testing: Testing how much strain the system can take before it fails. Considered to be a type of non-functional testing.
Usability testing: Validating how well a customer can use a system or web application to complete a task.

Best Practices of software testing

Software testing follows a common process. Tasks or steps include defining the test environment, developing test cases, writing scripts, analyzing test results and submitting defect reports.

Frequently testing can be time-consuming. Manual testing or ad-hoc testing may be enough for small builds and applications. However, for larger systems, tools UBSLogic specialists frequently using to automate tasks which helps teams implement different scenarios, test differentiators (such as moving components into a cloud environment), and quickly get feedback on what works and what doesn’t.

Core test management tasks.

We believe that a good testing approach encompasses the application programming interface (API), user interface and system levels. As well, the more tests that are automated, and run early, the better. Some teams build in-house test automation tools. However, many vendor solutions offer features which could facilitate core test management tasks which are:

  • Metrics and reporting: Reporting and analytics enable to UBSLogic testing team members to share status, goals and test results. Advanced tools integrate project metrics and present results in a dashboard. Our testing teams see the overall health of a project and can monitor relationships between test, development and other project elements.
  • Defect or bug tracking: Possibility of monitoring defects is important to both testing and development teams for measuring and improving quality. For example,automated tools allow our testing teams to track all defects, measure their scope and impact, and uncover related issues.
  • Continuous testing: Project teams test each build as it becomes available. This type of software testing relies on test automation that is integrated with the deployment process. It enables software to be validated in realistic test environments earlier in the process – improving design and reducing risks. We will tell you more about below.
  • Configuration management: Organizations centrally maintain test assets and track what software builds to test. Our teams gain access to assets such as code, requirements, design documents, models, test scripts and test results. Good systems include user authentication and audit trails to help us to meet compliance requirements with minimal administrative effort.
  • Service virtualization: Testing environments may not be available, especially early in code development. Service virtualization used by out testing gurus simulates the services and systems that are missing or not yet completed, enabling to our teams to reduce dependencies and accomplish test sooner. They can reuse, deploy and change a configuration to test different scenarios without having to modify the original environment.

Continuous testing methodology in DevOps teams

Also, UBSLogic’s development teams use a methodology known as continuous testing. It is part of a DevOps approach – where development and operations collaborate over the entire product life cycle. This approach contains Unit, API, UI, Exploratory, UX, and Beta testing. Our aim here is to accelerate software delivery while balancing cost, quality and risk. With this testing technique,our teams don’t need to wait for the software to be built before testing starts. They simply can run tests much earlier in the cycle to discover defects sooner, when they are easier to fix.
