Test and Test Automation

Test at the right level, at the right time and in a smart way.

Indispensable

When it comes to IT development, it’s important to test at the right level, at the right time, and in a smart way. Our consultants know testing and test automation. In most projects, test automation is an absolutely indispensable operation that cannot be overlooked. It ensures higher test coverage, more frequent test execution and faster deliveries.

Testing

Software testing is a way to assess the quality of the software and reduce the risk of software failures in operation. Testing typically consists of the verification of requirements, user histories or other specifications: “Did we build the product correctly?” and/or validation of business goals: “Are we building the right product?”

Test automation

At Cegal, we are committed to using modern test automation whenever appropriate.

We do this to:

  • Ensure high test quality
  • Secure quality documentation about the product
  • Avoid time-consuming manual processes

Test automation is one of many techniques used behind the scenes when creating software. It can happen at many levels, such as deeper down in the software as device tests, but also in the form of user interface testing (UI testing). It is important to identify what should be automated, as this should correspond with what is valuable to the customer.

UI test automation typically covers the most valuable scenarios first, and is then developed to represent multiple user scenarios. Once the test is stable, it can be automatically run and will quickly notify the team that the part in question is ready to ship on to development or launch (or not, as the case may be).

Having tests that alert the team to the actual status of further development/launch is a way to build the foundation for good teamwork. As a customer, this means you are spared production problems because the developer team is fed a steady stream of information that prevents errors and instability.

Cover thousands of scenarios in minutes

Test automation can cover thousands of scenarios in minutes, as opposed to manual testing that often takes hours, days, and even weeks. Choosing automated testing has many advantages.

In addition to saving time and effort, it’s an easy way to make sure that the documentation is designed to be easily read by humans and can also be run by computers in order to verify that the system works as described.

Good documentation is invaluable in software development, and Cegal’s experience is that when we use good testing techniques, we get solid teamwork and a high degree of customer satisfaction.

Cegal has a team of qualified and certified test consultants who have the knowledge and insights necessary to facilitate your transition from manual testing to an automated approach.
