Enterprises going through digital journey are faced with changes of varying magnitude to their people, business workflows, processes, technologies, QA strategy, and test execution. These changes are complex and require a managed and structured approach to ensure intended business outcomes with quality and at optimum cost. Mobile apps, AI & ML, Chat bots, Automation, and leveraging of other digital services are important; however it has to serve a larger purpose of change across the enterprise.
A Cloud-based application testing and test automation approach assumes a critical role in ensuring business agility and shortened time-to-market expected of today’s digital enterprises. In this context cloud-based testing assumes significance as it enables cost effectiveness, shortened time-to-market, business agility, incremental system deployment, and enhanced customer experience. Availability of a flexible and scalable test environment makes testing and test automation efficient and effective even in most complex business environment and systems.
Gadgeon’s testing and test automation services addresses applications and systems across the entire digital value chain consisting of web portals, web content, digital (smart) assets, connected devices, cloud apps, mobile apps, big-data, and enterprise applications. We will make the cloud work for you in every way possible.
When compared to traditional software testing approaches, cloud-based testing has several advantages:
Scalability of Test Environment — Today’s application has a dynamic environment with millions of sensors and different devices used in conjunction with intelligent software development. Creating a test environment to assess functionality, performance, and user experience is a big challenge in the traditional way. With the flexibility of cloud, we should be able to create and scale test environments quickly without errors.
As we have seen, Cloud-based testing has many benefits; at the same time it has its own challenges as well. Let’s consider some of the operational challenges that we may encounter while attempting cloud-based testing:
Business agility and shorter time-to-productivity are two critical characteristics of a modern digital enterprise. We define business agility as the ability of the enterprise to respond to changing business conditions and customer expectations at speed with quality. Building applications and launching them to target users, get feedback and quickly incorporate in real-time is given. Major applications like web or mobile apps can be tested effectively and efficiently by leveraging a cloud based testing environment. A cloud-based testing environment offers an efficient way of creating real-world user traffic with associated interfaces and complexities.
Today’s digital enterprises need strategies, ideas, and processes that bring cost-effective approaches to quality assurance and application testing. QA and Testing has a major role in the digital strategy. Cloud-based testing provides a strong platform for continuous testing and delivery while the application scope keeps increasing. A cloud-based testing environment makes the devices and applications accessible anytime from anywhere, which enhances success while making changes to applications in near real-time. No continuous investment in hardware or infrastructure is needed. Unlimited availability of resources is the best value that cloud brings for enterprises while building and integrating applications that are well tested.
In order to ensure success of your digital initiatives, it is important to have innovation and evolution of applications and systems on a continuous basis. A cloud-based testing and test automation platform encourages collaboration, continuous development, continuous testing, and integration, which is important in the successful adoption of agile and DevOps. Cloud based test management solutions to ensure that all teams involved are always on the same page. Constant availability of the test environment enhances the scope of automated testing for both functional and non-functional requirements such as performance, security, and scalability.
Cloud-based testing allows you to make your test environment work the way you want. It allows simultaneous testing of multiple aspects by multiple testers. As an example you could conduct functional and non-functional tests at the same time. This will definitely leads to higher quality benchmarks, maximum test coverage and efficiency. Cloud-based testing provides the speed and flexibility needed for critical processes such as Agile and DevOps that encourages better workflows and faster turnaround.
