Quality Engineering

Agile Testing

Quality assurance and testing teams of digital enterprises usually struggle to strike the right balance between application stability and time-to-market due to factors such as frequently changing requirements, lack of information, technical skills, or improper quality measurement.

A quality product is key for improving the customer experience and continuous business growth. AITA has been a trusted agile testing partner for enterprises who are at various stages of adopting Agile methodologies. We have helped enterprises with QA planning, estimation, and identifying metrics into their sprints resulting in a seamless integration of their sprint teams to improve test coverage & provide quality at high-speed.

At AITA, while our expertise in quality engineering practices such as DevOps, CI/CD, agile testing, and robust test automation help ensure quality assurance and control, our other testing techniques such as functional testing, performance testing, and more ensure that a “potentially shippable product increment” is delivered with every sprint.

DevOps Testing

Achieving fast and continuous development & deployment of business-critical cloud-based applications across diverse platforms requires seamless collaboration among development, test automation, & operations teams. DevOps approaches & DevOps technologies such as DevTestOps, DevSecOps, AIOps, Continuous Testing, etc. connect the teams to deliver Quality@High-Speed, stay competent and keep up with customer preferences.

Implementing DevOps technologies and testing practices helps to bring about a cultural shift that leads to greater collaboration across teams, improves the quality of code, increases the response rate of business changes, inculcates shift-left practices, & creates an environment of growth for Software Development Engineers in Test (SDETs) – all of which are necessary to provide DevOps solutions.

Working with DevOps consulting vendors like AITA helps enterprises implement the best DevOps automation practices and methodologies that leads to the quality benefits of:

  • Automated & continuous quality monitoring
  • Automated provisioning of virtualized test environments
  • Standardized DevOps adoption processes, solutions, approach, & strategy
  • Integration build, deployment, end-to-end DevOps test automation & reporting

Service Virtualization

Service Virtualization helps enterprises implement continuous testing practices by providing continuous accessibility to simulated test environments. However, as with any innovation, implementing service virtualization has its own challenges such as incompatibility of 3rd-party components, conflict of operations, training requirements, storage and memory constraints, failure notification, and recoverability that need to be diligently solved.

Being an early adopter of Service Virtualization, API testing, Cloud testing, and DevOps, AITA has a dedicated Center of Excellence focused on developing technical assets and building best practices continuously. Our Service Virtualization practice enables enterprises to quickly simulate and easily manage test environments for bringing high-quality software to the market faster at significantly lower costs.

AITA’s test automation services help test the emulation & behaviour of multiple API & Cloud-based apps, service-oriented architectures (SOA), and microservices, thereby making all applications under test (AUT) available for development & testing purposes.

Test Data Management

IT enterprises spend 30% of their time & effort in resolving issues related to managing test data, along with high test environment support costs due to data size as much as the production. While there is a lack of defined consistent & repeatable process to provide test data that is ’fit for purpose’ and offers increased test coverage, enterprises that use live data for testing expose themselves to compliance, regulatory and customer confidence risks:

  • 73% of DBA’s can view all data, increasing the risk of a breach
  • 50% say data has been compromised or stolen by a malicious insider such as a privileged user

AITA TDM Drivers:

  • Managing test data requests
  • Data standardization and synchronization
  • Regulations and compliance
  • Data privacy, threats, and breaches
  • Cost of data storage

Maturity Assessment Testing

Information Maturity Assessment – determines the current state of maturity of an organization to utilize data and information in an advanced manner. Understand what the organization does with the content and information it produces.

How do you calculate test maturity?

  • Testing is a measured and quantified process
  • Review at all development phases is recognized as tests
  • For reuse and regression testing, test cases are gathered and recorded in a test database
  • Defects are logged and given severity levels

Maturity assessments are usually used to provide demonstrable and auditable evidence to peers and market authorities on the adoption of Data Management best practices. By aligning the data programs with industry best practices, a firm can establish a benchmark from which to develop and grow your program.
