Walk by any number of offices during a game, and someone at Perfecto Mobile is streaming the World Cup. (In fact we streamed it live on mobile devices from our cloud a few weeks ago an event!) It’s a beautiful thing, when it’s working.
High-quality test management platforms distinguish themselves with advanced features. Not all test management systems are created equal, however. There are a few key features that QA leaders should look for when investing in a new platform.
Coverity, Inc., provider of software quality and security testing solutions recently acquired Kalistick, cloud-based software solutions provider that boosts testing efficiency. The Coverity Test Advisor clubbed with Kalistick solution will help build tighter collaboration between Development and QA teams, enabling faster time-to-market, reduced software development costs and higher end-product quality.
Enterprises that need to test new applications now have to deal with the reality of BYOD or bring your own device. This makes testing an application using plug ins time consuming and cumbersome as sometimes individual plug ins have to be added to a single device. To meet this challenge and simplify web and application testing DevExpress has launched its TestCafe v14.1.
Most organizations focus on ensuring and testing security of their cyber networks and perimeters. However, studies have shown that application software that contains personal information, intellectual property, and financial records are extremely vulnerable to attacks. With this in mind regulators have now mandated that security testing should be incorporated into the application development cycle.
With a plethora of mobile apps, websites, and apps being built regularly, Load Impact has now released a cloud based performance testing solution for them. The Software as a Services model of tests can simulate traffic from a variety of mobile devices and over a range of networks such as 3G, GSM, and LTE. The testing will also include many browsers and OS to ensure that it replicates real life situations.
TechExcel, which provides application lifecycle management products, has announced the launch of its DevSuite 9.3. This product has been designed after taking into consideration the requirements of customers to ensure that it meets their needs.
Testing is a key driver of IT systems delivery and even under the cloud and the mobile-based paradigm, firms need to test their applications running on the cloud and mobile. Therefore, it is no surprise that leading vendors like HP (Hewlett Packard) have launched products that target these applications.
Performance testing as everyone acknowledges, should no longer be an optional or an after release activity. The enterprises I have worked through have definitely realized this but still seem to commit some basic mistakes surrounding baselines, timing of planning for performance test and many others. LoadStorm team have joined us to air out few common mistakes that enterprises commit doing their performance test of their products or applications.
One of the problematic and overlooked tasks while creating a web application is making it compliant across browsers and platforms. This is especially difficult because each browser have its own architecture, uses its own rendering code, parser etc., and hence application manifests itself differently across different browser platforms.
