Software testing companies are pushed to the extent to devise new methods and processes to produce better software applications in the market. But why do the existing or conventional QA methods fail? The reason is the older methods of testing are unable to support the latest software applications and incompatible with the new features and increased number of users. So, the need of the hour is the transformation from the conventional methods of testing to a more contemporary one. While many organizations attempt to come up with such modern practices to sustain in the industry, there are few companies that know how to achieve it all with smart and easier ways. How they managed to find the way forward is because they realized that the old QA testing methods are less applicable since the latest software testing needs to be more agile, accurate, and accessible.

Need for a QE Mindset

When it comes to the transformation from old to new testing methods, software companies should reconsider all their testing methods, tools, framework, and even reskill the team. This is mainly because the old methods and tools have several limitations and are no more compatible to build apps and websites with multiple features and promptness. In short, the QA teams should have a QE mindset and transform their testing culture. As discussed earlier, testing methods used earlier would wait until the entire software is built and then perform testing. However, the latest ones involve testing right from the initial stages in the agile software development life cycle. The very idea of achieving a QA mindset is based on the ‘Shift-Left’ approach. This practice helps QA teams to spot the errors from every part of the script and fix it before all the codes are integrated.

The role of an SDET or a QA engineer is crucial in the modern testing methods as they are in charge of validating the scripts/codes in the early stages to avoid any kind of bug or defects. In the latest testing approaches, the QA team is allowed to involve in the API, which can reasonably improve the design. By testing the code in the initial stages of the development life cycle helps the QA team members to perform their job much easier with advanced tools and technology. The ability to scan the server processes, work with API tools, or validate the code sooner than earlier is what the QA teams need to have.

How Compatible is Hyper-Testing for Managed Testing Services?

Coming back to the tools and approaches implemented to build more scalable apps/sites, many organizations want to leverage methods that are less expensive and highly efficient at the same time. One such iterative test automation strategy widely used by successful enterprises in the test automation industry is Hyper-Testing. This promising automation strategy ensures that all the layers of the application being tested is taken care of and gives a holistic view of the app to the QA team. Therefore, the QA team will get a detailed idea about the app/sites. This sound test automation strategy offers its managed testing services engagement model (a combination of onsite and offshore resources), best tools, and processes to enterprises that need an efficient QA team to build high-quality software and improve their ROI. These managed testing services offered by Hyper-Testing takes the entire responsibility of the QA process and fits the five stages of the QA maturity model – Initial, Managed, Defined, Measured, and Optimization stage.

Embedded with AI/ML components, Hyper-Testing is capable enough to self-heal the changes in the test scripts without many manual interventions and come up with analytics based on the previous test runs. Along with this, Hyper-Testing leverages AFTA 3.0, a home-grown, Selenium-based automation framework that results in maximum cost savings, minimal testing efforts, and faster time to market in a matter of just few months.

Check out the detailed mind map on the best ways to overcome the widely faced challenges with an intelligent test automation strategy, Hyper-Testing here.

The mind map briefs in detail the entire life cycle of Hyper-Testing including its testing strategies, tools, frameworks, and best practices that leads enterprises right into achieving their business goals, boosting their ROI, and meeting customer expectations seamlessly. Precisely, software testing companies will be able to reach QA maturity in a very short span of time by leveraging Hyper-Testing and the processes involved in it.
