RPA is no longer a digital buzzword and more and more companies are adopting it. But there are several pitfalls, which leads to its failure. Through end-to-end RPA testing, these challenges can be resolved and RPA can be implemented successfully in a timely fashion.
The data is growing at a very high speed. According to IBM research, approximately 90% of the data has been created in the last two years. This large chunk of data, also called big data has made the role of quality professionals more challenging than ever. A large number of big data initiatives have failed due to data quality issues and lack of proper quality management strategy. In this whitepaper, Test Triangle offers its insight to handle big data testing challenges.
The cloud computing refers to a shared computing paradigm, wherein same resources can be used by different business and personal applications. Several features such as high bandwidth, technology virtualization and storage have made cloud a very popular technology today.
In cloud testing, software testing is migrated towards the cloud. It can reduce testing cost by removing upfront capital expenditure. There are also certain non-cost beneﬁts such as utility, on-demand ﬂexibility, reduced time-to-market and high collaboration between teams. The cloud testing is based on the concepts of cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS).
There are several cost & effort beneﬁts of cloud testing - but a comprehensive view is needed to achieve quality - Most of the company misses that but at test triangle a comprehensive view is adopted to achieve high quality.
Software testing conﬁrms seamless functioning of applications across all the user platforms. However, testing on multiple devices requires lots of efforts and is time-consuming. Today, automation test framework should allow the tests to be executed at large number of devices with minimal changes in the core structure of the test infrastructure. In this whitepaper, Test Triangle has proposed a cross-platform test automation framework that maximizes ROI (return of Investment) and accelerates time to market.
DevOps is not just a simple operation framework for building and releasing better software products but a cultural transformation for agile application delivery. However, end-to-end software testing cannot be achieved with only shift left approach. In the shift left approach, the focus is entirely on quality and getting things done the ﬁrst time. However, shifting right paradigm is important to understand how the actual users interact with the application, to track application performance and availability for the end user
Even today, there are several business enterprises that are following traditional software development processes, in which development, testing and operations are considered different entities. It is a common notion that each team has its own separate responsibility, role, and expertise areas. However, with the intrusion of DevOps, this distinction is slowly getting blurred. In fact, successful performance testing initiatives require all the teams to sync and work together in DevOps environment.
The fast paced IT software development environment is creating challenges for the software developers to create an ecosystem, which can support rapid prototyping, design, agile development and testing. It also put pressure on the quality assurance community to create an integrated automation tool, which can translate to all stages of software development. Automation testing is the key factor in reducing the lead time in new product deployment. However, there are several challenges in the deployment of automation framework as several different test automation tools and scripting languages are available in the market. The IT companies need to invest in training and building resources to utilize these resources effectively and adopt latest industry practices such as behavior-driven development (BDD) and behavior-driven test (BDT).
Mobile boom has occurred and every other organization is creating its own mobile application. But creating powerful mobile applications is complex as mobile applications are developed in a dynamic ecosystem. There are several unique challenges in mobile application development such as hardware and software fragmentation, networking issues, performance, and memory leakage and battery consumption. Therefore, today there is a need of having a unique approach for mobile test automation.
“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.” – John Ruskin
Quality is essential to the success of any business organization, let alone IT industry. All kinds of industries and business organizations have quality control programs that control different dimensions of product quality. In software industry, testing assures that the end-product is of desired quality and offers a good user experience. Although quality assurance is a timeconsuming and rigorous process, it is essential for several reasons in the present competitive environment. Nowadays, the companies are shifting towards agile project management and DevOps methodology to ensure high quality and fast product deployment time.
Performance engineering is the need of the hour! In today’s highly competitive times, performance engineering can jumpstart the product development process and helps an organization stay ahead in the competition. In this whitepaper, we have discussed holistic approach for performance engineering adoption.
The explosion of devices and digital applications is creating plethora of challenges for the testing organizations. Constantly decreasing ‘time-tomarket’ and increasing customer expectations are also making the matters worse. Is Quality Engineering answer to these issues?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) creates value for a business in various ways: economically, in terms of quality and workforce engagement. It is easy to deploy, compatible and increases the efﬁciency of the organization. In the present competitive era, it is important to stay ahead in terms of quality and speed and RPA facilitate it. Following certain best practices, business enterprises can create high value from it.
This white paper is Test Triangle’s attempt to shed light on various security testing methodologies. Based on the insight and experiences of the Test Triangle’s testing team, this white paper offers detailed information about the IT security challenges and their testing approaches. This document will be beneﬁcial for both small and large organizations in creating an exhaustive security system for their organization.
Agile is an empowering process, which makes organizations do things which were never possible before. Gone are the days when the production team thought that they can focus on either product quality or speed. Now the market competition has forced companies to deliver high-quality products in the smallest production time. Agile makes this easier but, adopting agile is not easy. The 12th annual “State of Agile” report, states that agile is easy to learn but difﬁcult to master. When a team masters latest agile techniques, a new trend comes into the market. The present white paper discusses the latest trends in agile development, which have a strong potential to impact the IT industry.
Since the last few years, the impact of technology has been profound on the hospitality industry. Several developments such as service robots, bartenders and delivery bots strongly indicate that in future RPA technology will have a vast impact on hospitality industry (Solomon, 2016). RPA bots can reduce the wait time; manage customer relations, invoices & bill processing, loyalty programs, and pulling out reservations to create a community of satisfied guests.
The travel and logistics industry is consistently growing; however, it has put forth some unique set of challenges for the companies operating in this industry. Several challenges such as demand of high-quality customer services, lowest possible cost, intense competition, and demand of personalized travel is compelling these companies to reevaluate their business model and offerings. In this scenario, RPA technology becomes significant means to eliminate unnecessary cost and gain a competitive advantage. The repetitive tasks in the travel & logistics industry such as updating customer details on web portal, current status, delivery schedule and tracking an order can be easily conducted by RPA-enabled bots.
