Software Testing and QA Services

If you’re reading this and you’re wondering what software testing really is, then this article was made especially for you.

What Equipment is Used in the Testing Process?

First of all – Software Testing is dope! No doubt about it. What exactly does it mean though? Why do we need it at the moment in the app-driven world so badly? By definition, software testing refers to a process that confirms and verifies requirements documented for a software product; assessing functionality, security risks, etc. When put bluntly – nowadays high-speed productions and constant changes have become an everyday routine (at least according to society). Millions are poured into every single piece of software these days, but users only ever see one final product at the end because there’s a plethora of options available – just one click or two away from being downloaded onto whatever device they want.

Your app may not be succeeding, but this does not mean that it’s destiny; it just means that you need to make sure that you are providing a quality product. In order to provide quality products, Test Scenario offers qualified QA personnel during the development process who work together in order to produce an exceptional product for their clientele.

Let’s check some statistics to support this statement.

  • In 2020, many apps faced huge losses because users were no longer interested in them. Low UX (User Experience) is the primary reason. The expected loss was $97,000 every month per app.
  • It is anticipated that by 2024, app revenue will reach 900 billion. To tap into apps you need to be of top-notch quality since only nine percent of people who try an application for five minutes or more stay there when it has low UX.
  • 49 percent of survey respondents agreed that they use mobile applications to measure brand credibility.
  • 13 percent said they discarded their app due to bugs and crashing.
  • 25 percent stated that they felt overwhelmed with all things thrown at them.
  • 17.2 percent complained about too many ads invading their screens as Push Notifications.
  • More than fifty percent feel compelled to stop using an application if it takes up too much space
  • 49% also don’t want to wait four seconds or more before an application loads.

Why does testing in the software development process need to be done?

Why does testing in the software development process need to be done?
Apart from helping us fix bugs, software testing saves us a lot of money too. This isn’t limited to finding faults or flaws- though we do find plenty! Once deployment has been completed and our app goes live in the market, it can be extremely expensive (and time-consuming) to fix them – not to mention the damage they’ll do to our reputation and security if they aren’t dealt with properly.
Instead of waiting until it becomes expensive to fix these mistakes, we can minimize the risks involved by running tests beforehand – ensuring that problems stay at an absolute minimum before anything else happens. You may think you’re the only person who cares about this specific niche–but odds are there are hundreds or even thousands of competitors vying for attention in this field; making sure your business doesn’t fall behind is crucial. Tests allow us to guarantee quality across both products and processes–ensuring nothing slips through unnoticed.
If you’re a software or app development company, you might want to look into using software testing as a validation process for your product. It provides reassurance that what you’ve created is of the highest quality because it’s been extensively analyzed by people who know what they’re looking for in this area.
Software testing leads to peace! There will no longer be chaos-like conditions once bugs arise after deployment due to faulty programs if there had been proper software testing beforehand. Hopefully, this article has given you an informative overview of the benefits associated with software testing.

How should a detailed test document be written?

There must be a succinct intro that summarizes the entire purpose of this project.
The list below is all needed for this project, but you can also add additional documents or information if necessary:
1) Entry and Exit Criteria (i.e., when does testing stop)
2) Protocols or Procedures to maintain tests at various times.
3) Acceptance Criteria.
4) Bug Life Cycle including management process, flow, and timelines.
5) Roles and Responsibilities.
6) Different Milestones/Deliverables are needed.
7) Risk Assessment with identification of possible effects and timing.
8) Resource requirements/details which are open to modification.

How should a test strategy be developed?

1) What will be tested?
2) Who will test the software?
3) How will testing take place?
4) When will testing start and when will it end?
5) Underlying risks in this project.

How do you develop better test cases?

A clean, neatly formatted test case consists of six major parts:
Test Case ID,
1) Unit to Test, Preconditions (What needs to happen before running this scenario?),
2) Input Data (Data sets required during the execution of this scenario),
3) Priority Level (How critical is this feature?),
4) Steps to Be Executed (Describe all the steps here)
5) Expected Result (The expected result of executing each step),
6) Actual Result (And then finally, describe what happened when we actually executed each step), Indicates whether or not a particular type of bug was found. Each type of bug should have its own symbol assigned as well. Pass or fail? Comments or additional information regarding anything else.

Test Case Study Preparation

Test cases document will detail steps needed to validate the software.

Objectives behind Test Cases:


Validate various attributes of the software.


To guide testers through testing-related activities.


To log bugs and identify the issue location.


To store it as a framework for future tests.


To expose usability flaws.

Systems Development Life Cycle and the Software Testing Process

Requirement Gathering

You need a proper means to set your end goal when it comes to software development. You can do this by determining what type of testing is needed, how much time is allocated, and other measures specified in the SRS (software requirements specification).

For example, if you’re trying to debug a legacy system with no or wearisome documentation, you should follow these steps. In such cases where there is an SRS (software requirements specification), but it’s missing something important like identifying crucial sections; again we cannot abandon this project because though it may seem overwhelming at first sight – thorough research will lead us somewhere! The effort one puts forth here will certainly pay off if not in this case then elsewhere else. But even without the aforementioned paper – knowing about common risks and where the majority of weaknesses exist provides enough knowledge for efficient progress. To increase efficiency, assign separate modules to people who have expertise working on those particular areas only. Pair testing, monkey testing, and other methods of testing can be used as well.

Analysis of Software Design and Examine the Test Results

Once adequate information has been gained for the purposes of testing, general test objectives are translated into specific test conditions and corresponding tests through the test analysis process.

Test analysis can be performed in parallel to speed up the procedure, but it may require further iterations of test design to determine which tests need to be conducted or modified. On the other hand, test design is one component of testing that should be verified with proper tests designed beforehand. Test design helps in determining which aspects need to be tested with a thorough explanation detailing how each will work when executed properly.

Responsibilities for test Analysis and Designing procedures

  • Reviewing the basic test artifacts such as requirements, the integrity of the software, basic risk analysis, interface specification, and architecture.
  • Testability evaluation will take place in part through
  • Identification and prioritization of test cases
  • Identifying necessary test data while disregarding what isn’t relevant to these aspects.
  • Designing a suitable test environment and determining the infrastructure required for testing
  • This process can also happen concurrently with defining base tests and establishing individualized test-case designs.

Create Bug Report

A bug report records issues in the software, and gives information about how close it is to completion. A list of errors and ways to fix them accompanies a bug report

Let’s have a look at an ideal bug report

  • A track record of managing tech modernization initiatives to success
  • Ensuring a smooth transition from old to cutting-edge technology
  • Advice on novel opportunities in service provision, data, mobility user experience, and more.

Best Practices For Bug Reporting

  • Developers usually will look for problems, which includes providing evidence and instructions about how to reproduce the problem.
  • If there are multiple ways to reproduce a bug, be sure that you mention which one you used.
  • Give clear and creative titles to the bugs.
  • Do not use unclear pronouns.
  • Give priority to bugs found in environments other than production

Planning A Strategy For Tests

Test plans differ from test strategies because a test strategy is designed for the organization and on the other hand, a senior/lead tester creates a test plan. Test plans differ from strategies in these ways:

Test Plan

  • Contains details about the scope of testing and different activities performed in testing
  • Set on project-level
  • SRS Documents extracted.
  • Test details will be included in the Test Plan
  • Can be Changed
  • Major components for this specific test plan include features to be tested, test case ids, test techniques, responsibilities, testing tasks, and deliverables. Features will either pass or fail based on predetermined criteria after being rigorously tested according to a timetable.

Test Strategy

  • High-level document
  • Testing will be conducted
  • Set on a strategic level.
  • Used to devise high-level tactics that will be used in market tests.
  • Cannot be Changed
  • Components of test strategy include communications strategies, testing processes, documentation formats, objectives and scope, and team reporting structures.

Test Strategy Components

  • Scope.
  • What approach will be taken?
  • About the Test Environment.
  • Types of Tools used in the Project.
  • Release Control.
  • Risk Analysis and Mitigation Techniques.
  • Reviews and Approvals.

Test Implementation

Once we know what needs to be tested, the test cases will then be distributed among our group members for review. Once we receive feedback from each person on the team (developers, business analysts, stakeholders and quality assurance testers), we’ll go back through all of them once more to create a finalized version. These tests can often take place in an individual’s local environment or directly within their own project space so they’re up-to-date at all times.

  • Based on potential risks, the test suite will be executed for an allotted time.
  • Tests will be assigned to a specific tester for execution.
  • The tests will run until completion or if there are any blocks at which point they must be cleared up.
  • Test reports and necessary adjustments will then need to take place.
  • Every test cycle’s findings should be reported back upon completion.

Test Implementation Guidelines

  • The build needs to be ready for testing.
  • The test environment and dev pipeline must be separated, but when you push a bug report into the development pipeline it shouldn’t impede the current coding activity.
  • There needs to be someone acting as a test lead throughout. You need enough people at the time of executing tests or you’ll max out your capacity.
  • Multiple cycles are needed to work through blocking issues early on.
  • The execution phase includes Test script maintenance, executing Tests scripts, and reporting what was found.
  • Perform a Test Readiness Review (TRR) so you don’t waste time during later stages of testing.
  • You need smoke and sanity tests right after TRRs.
  • Once the build is finished, prepare it for exploratory testing to find any hidden bugs.

Types of Software Testing

Different Kinds of Software Testing

Manual Testing

As the term might suggest, manual testing is all about testing the software without using a designated tool—you’re simply manually exploring the software with or without knowledge of it. Manual testing can be further classified into three groups: white, black, and grey.

  • White Box Testing: Executed by people who know how to code; these types of tests focus on examining the architecture of the software in depth.
  • Black Box Testing: These types typically examine functionality without much awareness of what goes on behind the scenes; sometimes called ‘functional’ tests (due to their goal).
  • Grey Box Testing: A combination of both black and white box testing used when there are context-specific related errors within a web system; this type allows for a thorough examination of both UI elements as well as the underlying structure.

Functional Testing

  • Unit Testing: Unit testing is used to ensure the quality of code before it goes live. If the code has high quality, it’ll avoid many bugs when it launches in development.
  • Integration Testing: Integration testing allows for checking up on what progress looks like in terms of SDLC progression. Modules are tested as separate pieces or grouped together for assessment purposes.
  • System Testing: System testing is done to see if an end-to-end specification meets all requirements put forth by the business needs; which often include usability and performance concerns among others.

Types of Non Functional Testing

Non-Functional Testing

Performance testing allows you to look at the performance of a software in different scenarios. There are several types of performance testing;


Load Testing

This is what you need to do if you want to know how your system responds under increased pressure.


Stress Testing

To see how long a piece of hardware will hold up under pressure, you need stress testing.


Scalability Testing

Knowing whether or not your system can handle data needs is vital for many companies, so scalability tests are necessary.


Volume Testing

Finding out whether or not your computer handles larger amounts of information well comes from volume tests.


Usability Testing

These tests allow people who use an application to say whether or not they’re having trouble doing anything.


Compatibility Testing

The software you have created must work uniformly across various platforms such as Android, iOS, Windows, etc. and devices. To ensure that so you can use compatibility testing

What is Test Automation in Software Testing?

Imagine you had a commercial-grade program. To test it fully, you needed 1,000-3,000 different software tests. Doing this manually could be tedious and daunting; but thanks to automation, we’re able to do this at the touch of a button!

Through automated software testing we’re able to automate any basic or routine tasks that are happening again and again – making life easier for us all!

What kinds of tests are capable of automation?

1) Unit Testing
2) GUI Testing
3) API Testing
4) Performance / Load Testing

Which test automation tools are the finest?

1) Selenium
2) Katalon studio
3) Appium
4) Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing
5) Tricentis Tosca
6) Telerik Test Studio
7) Cucumber
8) Watir Project
9) Eggplant Functional
10) Testing Anywhere

Software Testing Trends 2022

  • As companies adapt Agile and DevOps practices, both contribute to simplifying the SDLC process and thus save valuable time.
  • More versatile processes are being added in automation; testers are able to use these less complex systems for simpler, faster tests (not requiring codeless).
  • Thus IoT Systems require new approaches for testing due to their dependence on the intricacies of Cloud Architecture – which will soon be automated.
  • Blockchain – though not so old – is currently valued at around $0.90 Billion USD due to its immense potential; firms need specialists who have skillsets fitting this particular niche area. With most Blockchain technologies being open source, manual verification could create innumerable security holes or produce wrong outcomes;
  • which makes automated tests necessary. No matter what field you’re in, data plays a vital role in life – without it, every industry would crumble if it were exposed somewhere outside network security barriers/protected from cross-site scripting/denial of service attacks/SQL injection.
  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has been introduced slowly into the software testing industry. With RPA involved, other than being able to perform tedious tasks, it also doesn’t require access to a live system and can automate more tests. A major benefit of RPA is that you don’t need high-level programming knowledge in order to operate it.


Quality assurance is more than just a person going through the software randomly. The process requires knowledgeable and experienced individuals who know how to go about performing tests effectively. Quality has become of utmost importance in this day and age, which means that QA practices are now being implemented everywhere throughout the software industry. When you work with us at Test Scenario, we’ll take care of both your web-based applications and apps for mobile devices – all while incorporating automation into your development pipeline so that you’ll have a robust final product before long.
