Frequently asked questions

  • How is software testing done?Open or Close

    We specialise in software testing automation. We use our own UTA-H framework. Our software testing script writers are software developers that programmatically automate the testing of your software product. In addition to software testing automation, we also focus on software performance testing using leading performance testing tools. We also maintain a large mobile device lab for testing of mobile solutions.

  • How much software testing is enough?Open or Close

    Some of our clients aim to achieve a 100% testing coverage of their systems, but in general most of our clients aim to automate the testing of the majority (but not all) of their business and system processes.

  • How do you do software testing using Agile?Open or Close

    We believe that a combined approach of testing within a Sprint and outside of a Sprint is needed. Our approach is to do functional testing and unit testing within a Sprint using testers and developers that form part of the development team. The testers can be co-located with the developers or work from remote locations. In addition to the in-Sprint testing, a team of test automation scripters work from a backlog of system processes that need automation testing. Typically once an acceptable test automation coverage is achieved, these automation scripts are developed one Sprint behind the actual development Sprint.

  • Who is involved in Software Testing?Open or Close

    A Product Owner needs to direct the work priorities of a software test automation team just like he/she determines the priorities of the development team. This means that the Product Owner ensures that the test automation team in our Global Test Centre works from a backlog of items that need test automation. In addition to the testers in our testing centre who perform functional, automation testing or performance testing, there may also be testers in the development teams that test the in-Sprint development.

  • How is mobile app Software Testing done?Open or Close

    We use a combination of mobile platform simulators and our extensive Mobile Device lab to test mobile apps on both a simulated environment and on actual mobile devices. Our mobile app testing includes functional testing as well as mobile app test automation using our framework.

  • What software testing life cycle do you use?Open or Close

    We are firm believers in the Agile approach to software development. Using an Agile approach, means we do our software testing in Sprints and work from a product testing backlog.

  • Do you provide outsourced Software Testing solutions?Open or Close

    Yes! Our Global Software Testing Centre in Cape Town, South Africa provides outsourced software testing solutions to clients all over the world.

  • Why automate software testing?Open or Close

    To achieve continuous software delivery, automating software testing is essential. If you need short development and testing cycles, automating the testing of your software is not optional anymore. We ensure that each new product release/deployment can be tested within a couple of hours versus the many weeks required in a manual testing environment.

  • How is your software testing automation different?Open or Close

    Software testing automation has traditionally been done using "record and playback" solutions. The problem with this approach is that any changes in the system often requires that the specific testing of a system process is to be re-recorded for playback. When a system frequently changes, maintaining these playback-scripts may become expensive. Our approach is a test automation framework developed in Java where the test scripts are maintained by developers. This means that a change in the system is often a relatively small code change in the test script (like adding a method to test an additional screen text field) as opposed to re-recording a potentially long playback script.
