Testing Services include activities associated with finding defects within applications as well as verifying whether applications operate as expected. Some of the testing services offered by Avocette include:
Test Planning and Preparation
Test planning and preparation includes reviewing requirements and design specifications to qualify and quantify the types of testing required.
Test Data Management
Identifying and creating new test data, both transactional and referential in order to complete the testing of these new functions.
Product testing consists of a variety of tests that validate the changes and that the application meets the functional, non-functional and technical requirements.
Functional testing is a component of product testing that bases its test cases on the design specifications of the application under test.
System testing should focus on any target requirements that can be traced directly to use cases (or business functions), and business rules.
Application security testing focuses on three (3) key areas of Application security:
Integration testing is the phase in software testing in which application components and other related applications (upstream/downstream transactions) are integrated, combined and tested as a group
Performance testing is a broad category of tests that are used to validate and verify the performance related Application requirements and architecture design components.
Load testing measures subject the Application-under-test to varying workloads to evaluate the Application’s ability to continue to function properly under these different workloads.
Volume Testing subjects the Application-under-test to large amounts of data to determine the limits at which the software will fail.
Regression testing is any type of application testing that seeks to uncover new errors, or regressions, in existing functionality after changes have been made to an Application, such as functional Enhancements, patches or configuration changes.
Test and Defect Reporting
Test and defect reporting is a sub-set of application project delivery status reporting that involves the active monitoring and measurement of testing related key performance indicators.
