System Testing

As we know, System testing is one of the types of software testing that verifies the overall functionality of a fully integrated software application. In system testing, the application is tested against the defined requirement specifications and is suitable for the end users.

We at SoftDevOps Consulting, understand the goal of system testing which is also called as Black Box Testing, and it is the working of the application in the customer ecosystem.

System testing is performed after unit, integration & functional testing and before customer specific user acceptance testing.

The following are the common techniques of System testing:

Usability Testing: System 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.

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.

Performance Testing / Load Testing: Under performance testing, our team checks the response time of the application, transactions processing time under various load conditions (Load condition is nothing but the number of users accessing the application at any given time). Performance testing is usually done along with Stress testing.

Stress Testing: It is a type of performance testing where our team puts load on the application beyond the normal operations and check the breakpoint of the application. A detailed report is being created with conclusion & recommendations and shared with the customer.

Migration Testing: When the customer applications are migrated from older hardware / OS to newer version of the hardware / OS, then we do migration testing. The goal of this testing is to ensure the functionality is working exactly the same on both the systems. A detailed report is being created with all the variations and shared with the customer.

Scalability Testing: The focus of this testing is to check how the application is performing if its user load capacity is scaled up or down. Our team ensures that a detailed report with conclusions and recommendations are shared with the customer.

Our value propositions:

Customer Satisfaction – Our team focuses on the complete coverage of the requirements and business scenarios. This ensures that the application is fully working in the customer’s ecosystem.

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.
