Software Quality Assurance Services

Success in software and application development is dependent on how well you test your applications. Whether you have developed them or simply built, integrated or configured them, EcomNets offers a solution that will help you through the myriad of complex tasks necessary for the completion of software and application testing.

Software Quality Assurance is an umbrella term we use to refer to the process involved in ensuring quality in software deliverables. These processes incorporate both Software Quality Control (SQC) and Software Testing. Business leaders unanimously agree that quality is important, but understanding how to get there, what processes to implement, what people to engage is often a difficult and eluding decision. EcomNets solution will help you to sift through all the information and turn it into useable knowledge to increase your application development success.

EcomNets provides business stakeholders with information about the quality of the software or application being developed. Through our ITIL-based, industry proven methodologies, EcomNets provides development organizations with an objective, independent view of the software to allow the business to appreciate and understand the risks of software project or implementation. Our test techniques include, but are not limited to, the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding errors or other defects. At a minimum our processes provide demonstrated proof of validating and verifying that a software program or application:

  • Meets the requirements that guided its design and development,
  • Works as expected,
  • Can be implemented with the same characteristics, and
  • Satisfies the needs of stakeholders.

Our Software Quality Assurance processes can be implemented at any time in the development process. Traditionally most of the test effort occurs after the requirements have been defined and the coding process has been completed.

Develop and improve your overall quality by learning and implementing proper process that fits your organizational needs. Whether you develop for the web, or integrate off the shelf software, your customers deserve your best, and you deserve their trust. This solution will help guide you through creating and maintaining a process that works for you.

Functional Testing

This is usually the first test phase that the test organization is responsible for. It is one of the most powerful testing approaches which will significantly reduce the number of defects found in later stages.

Functional tests validate and verify that the developed system behaves according to the client / business specifications. Verifying that each component responds correctly to all conditions that may result from incoming events or data.

Functional testing requires well-formed functional requirements, from which the testers can create definitive test cases.

  • he objective of functional testing is to measure the quality of the business components of the system
  • Functional testing can be an overwhelming task for teams with little experience
  • To ensure success, the scope of the testing effort must be well defined

Security Testing

EcomNets Software Quality Assurance processes have a proven established software testing practice that is focused on uncovering vulnerabilities within the system and determine that the Enterprise’s data and resources are protected from possible intruders.

There are four main focus areas to be considered in security testing (Especially for web sites and applications):

  • Network security: This involves looking for vulnerabilities in the network infrastructure (resources and policies).
  • System software security: This involves assessing weaknesses in the various software (operating system, database system, and other software) the application depends on.
  • Client-side application security: This deals with ensuring that the client (browser or any such tool) cannot be manipulated.
  • Server-side application security: This involves making sure that the server code and its technologies are robust enough to fend off any intrusion.

Usability Testing

The primary reason for usability testing is to provide relevant and adequate feedback during the development process to ensure that the completed application will actually be easy to use, effective to use and will provide meaningful and valuable information to the user of the application.

Usability testing is coordinated by the test team, however neither developers nor testers should be involved in the actual testing. Testers for usability should be the users themselves.

  • testing for user-friendliness
  • the most subjective of all tests performed
  • developers and designers, while talented, aren’t like “normal” people
  • Designing systems that make sense to developers will often lead to a site that is not usable by the average person

LoadTesting

Load testing is the simplest form of performance testing. A load test is usually conducted to understand the behavior of the system under a specific expected load. This load can be the expected concurrent number of users on the application performing a specific number of transactions within the set duration. This test will give out the response times of all the important business critical transactions. If the database, application server, etc. are also monitored, then this simple test can itself point towards any bottlenecks in the application software.

Localization Testing

EcomNets has developed a streamlined process for the evaluation and testing of “Localization” within the standard SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle). Our process validates whether the software application is dynamic enough to use a particular geographic location or country. In testing localization, our testing checks out the quality of the product for not only a particular locale or culture; but also its ability to integrate data inputs from various geo-locating systems or applications. EcomNets services check the quality of translation in localization testing as well as validate the pre-production localized version of the product.

In particular, EcomNets provides testing methodologies in Internationalization or Globalization, with focus on:

  • Check for the functionality with different language settings. It might possible that functionality may not work other than on the English setting.
  • Check to ensure that there are not any hard-coded string(s) used in the code.
  • Check the Numbers, Currencies, Character sets for different countries.

Benefits of for Localization and Globalization Testing

  • Reduce overall testing costs
  • Reduce the support costs
  • Help reduce time for testing which results in faster time-to-market
  • It has more flexibility and scalability.

Mobile Testing

Technology has created the explosion and proliferation of all types of mobile hand-held devices. Further, developers, manufacturers and communications companies have developed applications for these devices which are ubiquitous across the information domain and devices. EcomNets has proven processes and methodologies for the testing and validation of application software developed for hand held mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability and consistency.
