Agile Testing @ InfoBeans

Default Image

Requirements are never complete and there are always ambiguities to deal with it. The worst case is when the software meets its specifications but doesn’t meet the user needs.

Wouldn’t it be better to build smaller parts of the system, have the business work with the developers and testers, to confirm what’s being built is indeed what they need?

Why Not!!

Let’s build the system in small increments, increasing the systems functionality in each release, and potentially deliver a working system at the end of each increment that actually meets the end user needs.

Lets Transform the Vague into Sheer

Lets Go Agile 

InfoBeans introduced Agile methodology to bring quality perfection and process agility. Testing from the beginning of the project and maintaining quality throughout the project life-cycle, is the foundation on which InfoBeans Agile testing team works.

So, testing becomes an essential component of each phase of the project life-cycle, with quality being “Soaked in” to a product at every stage of its … Read More

The Testing Map

Default Image

 

Recently came across a nice testing mind map called “The Testing Map”. It includes topics like Process, Tools, Methodology, Technology etc. Although this is work in progress and a long way to go, I really liked the idea of presenting the information pertaining to software testing in this way.

I believe it’s a nice initiative which can provide consolidated information to folks who aspire to become test engineers or can be handy reference material for others already in the industry.

The good thing is that you can actually contribute in the making of the mind map by just contacting the team via email contact@thetestingmap.org. It also has very simple instructions on the website on how to use the mind map. Go check for yourself and contribute if you can.

Why Usability Is Important?

One of the most important aspects of any product is Usability.

Useful means the product has the content, features, and functions that your target users really need. It provides a compelling answer to the user’s question: “Why should I use this product?”

At InfoBeans, we focus on the core usability components i.e. Learnability, Efficiency, Memorability, Error Prevention and Enhancing Satisfaction Level of any product.

Usability is a weapon that can save you money, improve your competitive position, and improve customer loyalty. If the application/ product is difficult to use nobody will be going to use it and the intent of developing the system would be finished. So it is necessary to perform usability testing of each and every application/ product by keeping in mind the intended users. There are many reasons due to which usability is performed, some of which are listed below –

Usability returns benefits in form of increased return on investment or ROI, if done at the beginning of the product development lifecycle. As early usability defects are identified the less would be … Read More

Security Testing @ InfoBeans

The world of internet is growing rapidly day by day and web application security testing has become an integral part of software development industry.

UX Drill at InfoBeans

At InfoBeans, we understand the importance of User Experience and how it can make or break the overall experience of the solution, if overlooked. It is no more a luxury but a necessity of any solution that is developed.

And it is important that the principles of User Experience are ingrained in the team members across the organization and not just a specialized group who are designated to work on UX. The UX Drill at InfoBeans is a step in that direction where newly joined folks and upto SSE or SQAE level get a chance to learn and improve their UX skills.

The first link in the chain is Heuristics Evaluation exercise.

Heuristics are a set of recognized usability principles that helps to identify usability issues in the user interface. There are 10 most widely used usability heuristics and we have exercises for each heuristic as part of Heuristics Evaluation Activity in the UX Drill.
