Perform All Phases of QA Life Cycle

Our QA specialists perform any or all of the QA Life Cycle Phases starting from defining the architecture of QA process thru performing specific testing cycle (i.e. functional, system, load/stress testing etc.).

Design Review

A thorough review of the processes and design of the product/ application. Subject matter specialists and senior designers do this exercise. Architectural, Development and Implementation issues are discussed and frozen at this point in time. Our QA architects get involved at this stage to determine the potential influence of architecture and design on the QA process, platform and tools selection.

Unit testing

The most 'micro' scale of testing to test particular code modules. Typically done by the programmer and not by QA engineers, as it requires detailed knowledge of the internal program code. Not always easily done unless the application has a well-designed architecture with tight code; may require developing test driver modules or test harnesses.


Code Walkthrough

Code walkthrough entails looking at a programmer or developer's code. We encourage it as a part of the QA Engineering process. There is no substitute for a close examination a programmer's code by other qualified members of the team as it catches programming errors early. The idea of code walkthrough also ensures that a programmer has used good coding practices and established coding standards.

Functional testing

Our QA engineers develop test cases to target each desirable and undesirable function of the software. Each function of the software is targeted and tested in separation from other functions of the software.

Integration testing

We test the combined parts of an application to determine if they function together correctly. The 'parts' can be code modules, individual applications, client and server applications on a network, etc.. An automated tool can also be used to do an integration testing.

Regression testing

In this phase, we ensure that a bug fix or modification of software doesn't have undesirable impact on other parts or functions of the software. A mix of test cases involving different functions of the software form a regression bucket. This regression bucket needs to be executed each time a bug fix or software modification is released to QA. Automated testing tools are especially useful for this regression testing.

Stress / Load testing

As the name suggests, we put an application under heavy loads to determine at what point the software systems response time degrades or fails. The purpose is to determine the capability limitation of the software system.

Acceptance Testing

This is more of a customer (or user) side function as opposed to being a part of QA life cycle. We ensure that the software system meets the set criterion of quality before being accepted or released. The acceptable criterion of quality could be based on results from previous phases of QA (system testing or performance testing etc.) or may involve entirely different testing phase independent of previous testing phases performed.
