Organizations invest in giant proportions in their IT infrastructure with the vision of streamlining process and smoothing the flow of business. In order that the IT applications really benefit the organization, without becoming a liability themselves, they must be tested thoroughly and verified for quality before they are deployed. Testing and Quality Assurance is therefore a vital part of SDLC and a third set of eyes, other than the design team’s and the development team’s is often necessary to detect and kinks or blockers and rectify them before production release so as to make life easier for both the management and the technical team.
Important Facets of Testing and QA at Paragyte
IT personnel often tend to allocate the major chunk of time to designing and coding, but when it comes to testing, they are not so generous. However, sufficient time and resources must be allocated for this phase too to ensure that the application ‘goes live’ in a smooth fashion without rebounding on the face of errors, major or minor. At Paragyte, we do not believe in rushing through our Testing Projects. We strive to work with remarkable efficiency, yet ensure that enough time and resources are allocated to do justice to the process of testing.
Efficient Test Strategies
There are numerous Automated Testing Tools available that can be made use of to test the common scenarios that can occur in all applications. These can be used to speed up the process of testing without compromising on its effectiveness. However, There might be scenarios that cannot be covered by the automated tools – scenarios specific to the given application. To deal with such cases, Manual testing is equally important. IT Managers and CIOs should be aware of the importance of both Manual and Automated testing and should be able to weigh the requirements to determine the proportion of usage each for a given application
