Modern technology systems are in a state of continual enhancement and upgrade. Successful and robust testing therefore can not be accomplished with a piecemeal or isolated approach. Both the application and the entire technology stack including core systems must be tested in a holistic manner.
In many cases, testing procedures are limited to obtaining the services of test specialists and paying for the time and material resources utilised. Quality-conscious organisations must ensure return of value on their investment with predictable and time-bound outcomes.
Major challenges faced during testing
How much to test
It is always a challenge to balance limited and goal specific investment with the amount of risk involved in stopping midway post utilization of the budget.
Shortage of subject matter experts
Non-availability of subject matter experts for business side testing can impact testing procedures.
Lengthy testing cycles
Long duration testing procedures can prolong time to market
Mastek's Expertise in Testing
- Proven, Flexible Defect Prediction Model – With extensive market experience in testing, Mastek has developed robust defect prediction models that can forecast the realistic number of defects across an entire software development life cycle. This model ensures quality testing, as the number of defects identified during testing can be compared with those given by the predictive model.
- Hybrid Automation Framework – Automation is often seen as a panacea that reduces testing time and increases quality. But writing and modifying automation scripts adds significantly to the cost and time incurred while testing. Mastek has built a unique hybrid automation framework that enables rapid implementation of automation without adding significantly to the costs.
- Ready Test Assets for Insurance – Mastek has nearly three decades of experience in testing and extensive domain expertise in insurance. Over the years Mastek has developed and maintained an extensive library of ready-to-use test assets to aid every new project that we undertake. The reusable asset library is continually updated after completion of each project.
- Predictable Cost, Predictable Outcome – Mastek's holistic understanding of testing gives it a unique perspective and a powerful commercial model. We provide a 'pay per test case' option to enable organisations to size and plan a testing release alongside the development of high level requirements. This option significantly improves predictability and eases project budget pressures.
