The Ultimate Guide To Mobile Application Testing
Mobile Application testing is quite a popular line in software development outsourcing.
On the one hand, testing procedures are an important component in making quality software and if a software product must comply with quality requirements, these requirements must be clearly defined. Go through this blog by AppSierra, a premier software testing company to know more about mobile application testing and performance testing services in India.
Importance Of Full-Scale Mobile App Testing During Product Development
The absence of a full-scale mobile app test during product development is a serious risk factor. This can not only make the project unprofitable due to eliminating defects during commercial operation of the product or refunding money to buyers (if this is a commercial off-the-shelf product), but this can also ruin the company’s reputation.
Functional Testing Of Commercial Off-The-Shelf Products
On the other hand, the process of full-functional testing is usually very resource consuming. For example, functional testing of commercial off-the-shelf products should include checking its ability to work under different editions of the target operating system, as well as under different language versions of this OS, verifying stability of the product during installation and removal of various updates for the OS and office applications, investigating the product’s work with different options set and under different user rights, sometimes also testing how it works on different hardware configurations.
Load Testing Of Server-Based Software
Also, usually the developing company does not have at their disposal the whole range of the necessary hardware and OS versions. Load testing of server-based software (as well as some other kinds of testing) normally require appropriate allocation of equipment and quite expensive software (for example, there are testing tools that cost more than the total budget of many software development projects), also specialists are needed who can create test procedures that ensure completeness of testing and the product’s compliance with the requirements. Some large software companies have these resources, but for small and medium companies it is too expensive.
It should be noted that today in Russia there are companies that specialize in providing software testing services. Such companies usually have at their disposal a wide range of hardware and software, as well as special software testing tools. Let us remember that in the field of software development, there are also some other outsourcing practices apart from the creation of standard code, testing and compilation of documents. For example, web and intranet developers quite often order design for their applications with specialized studios that have professional artists on staff.
According to the poll conducted by AMR Research, the domestic outsourcing industry has an annual turnover of about 750 million dollars, which is significantly less than the turnover of this industry in India. At the same time, in Russia, there is a number of companies, providing services in the field of software development outsourcing and quality assurance, which have the turnover of more than 20 million dollars. According to the AMR Research, Russian companies have certain advantages; the most important of them are high qualification of their specialists and a low rate of staff turnover. Unlike Indian service providers, Russian companies can be characterized by a more balanced approach to project management and due to this fact, the analysts recommend to contract Russian companies for the projects that involve high risks.
