SOFTWARE TESTING LIFECYCLE
Sumatosolutions software team is only as good as the quality of the work it produces. That’s why we value excellence over success, and provide specialized Quality Engineering & testing as a separate service–as well as baked right into every project we take up. To verify that application works as expected, we adopt an iterative approach that begins from the very start of development to the time when the application is ready to ship to client.
After a comprehensive requirement analysis, Software Testing Life Cycle refers to a testing process which has specific steps to be executed in a definite sequence to ensure that the quality goals have been met. In the STLC process, each activity is carried out in a planned and systematic way. Each phase has different goals and deliverables. Test strategy is designed that covers everything from test development procedures to the closure activities which ensure that the test meets the ‘exit’ criteria. Since each phase of the software development life cycle goes through rigorous testing, hence it is done in various levels.

Two types of testing are done at Sumato Solutions depending on the particular test objectives.
Functional Testing: Functional testing is a type of testing which verifies that each function of the software application operates in conformance with the requirement specification. This testing mainly involves black box testing, and it is not concerned about the source code of the application. This testing involves checking of User Interface, APIs, Database, security, client/ server applications and functionality of the Application Under Test. The testing can be done either manually or using automation. It basically tends to answer questions like “can the user do this” or “does this feature work.”
Non Functional Testing: Non-functional testing is a type of testing to check non-functional aspects (performance, usability, reliability, etc.) of a software application. It is explicitly designed to test the readiness of a system as per nonfunctional parameters which are never addressed by functional testing. A good example of non-functional test would be to check how many people can simultaneously login into a software.
Automation testing is a Software testing technique to test and compare the actual outcomevwith the expected outcome. This can be achieved by writing test scripts or using any automation testing tool. Test automation helps us automate some repetitive but necessary
tasks in a formalized testing lifecycle, or add additional testing to save extra time spent on regression testing.
At Sumato Solutions, we use tools like Selenium, Jenkins, Robotium, Cucumber, Capybara, Monkey Talk, HP QTP and HP UFT to control the execution of tests and the comparison of actual outcomes to the expected ones.
Our consultants help you devise a comprehensive roadmap to create an agile and scalable infrastructure that improves performance, reliability and security.
Goal is not to reduce test resources or testing cycle time, it is to reduce the risk and cost of software failure by increasing the test coverage.
