Functional Testing:

As we know, Functional testing is one of the types of software testing where the defined requirements are tested in the software. In other words, detailed test cases are being created covering all the requirements. The software is then tested by executing these test cases. The test results of this execution as Pass or Fail tells us if the software is meeting the defined requirements and specifications or not.

We at SoftDevOps Consulting, understand the goal of functional testing. And it is the coverage of the defined requirements in the software. Other areas of the functional testing are as follows:

Usability Testing: Functional testing also ensures that the user can easily navigate through the business functionalities through the application screens without any difficulty. Also, the application is accessible to the end user.

Unit and Integration testing: During the development phase when the entire application is not ready, and it is being developed in pieces, our team starts the testing by picking up the individual screens or modules and does unit level testing. This ensures early detection of the defects and can help fixing in the early stages of the software development. Also, as the units/screens/modules get developed, we also perform integration testing to get early visibility of the communication between the modules.

System Testing: When the application is ready, then our team performs thorough testing within the customer ecosystem. This ensures that the application is working correctly within the customer ecosystem. Usually, the requirements are created only for the application and how it will behave in the ecosystem is not fully covered. Our team takes this additional responsibility to ensure customers that the testing coverage is end-to-end.

Regression Testing: Application development is a continuous process where the modules of the application are being developed and integrated. As we test modules, it becomes important that the functionality is not disturbed by the introduction of the new module. Through regression testing our team ensures that the working functionality is intact.

Database Testing: In a typical client-server application scenario, it is usually the case that the data is being stored in a database. It therefore becomes necessary for a tester to test the Read and Write capability of the data by the application. During testing, our team of testers ensures the input data correctly goes to the database by verifying it in the database. Vice versa, we also ensure that the data present in the database is correctly fetched by the application in the application’s screens.

Our value propositions:

Customer Satisfaction – Our team focuses on the complete coverage of the requirements and business scenarios. This ensures that the required business functionality is working all the time and the customer is satisfied.

Quicker testing cycles - With our automated test cycles we ensure quicker test cycles every release. This ensures faster time-to-market and cost saving. Automated test cycles are designed robustly for minimum user intervention in functional test scenarios coverage.

Early involvement in SDLC - Our team gets involved in the SDLC at early stages. This ensures early detection and fixing of the defects. Also, it ensures that the later test cycles yield a handful of critical defects, and the release of the application is not delayed due to critical defects found at the later stage.

Improves quality of the application - Our test suites are designed and executed in such a way that the focus is always on the overall quality improvement of the application. With early detection of the defects to regression test cycles ensures functionality working all the time.

Test Assets - We deliver test strategy, test scenarios, test cases and automation scripts to the customer at the end of the testing cycle. This ensures that if the customer wants to run another cycle of testing during any change to the application, then he can do it himself.
