To develop a software, all you need is a computer and know-how to use any programming language. So we have millions of apps available for our smartphones and a huge amount of web solutions. But the truth is that many of them present serious issues of functionality, usability, performance and security.
A MULTITUDE OF DETAILS
A software can be considered as a process automation of the real world in its digital form. It means that the business specific knowledge implies rules for which the software will need to address. In addition, integration challenges with other systems and the other variables, that can influence the behavior of the application, must be considered.
AN INCREASING COMPLEXITY
We evolved from the mainframe to the simplicity of a desktop. Then, the web brought the explosion of information, and the mobile devices revolution has boosted the leap into the cloud. Subsequently, the miniaturization of the technology allowed us to experience the concept of IoT, resulting in a continuous and innovative stream. In the business environment we have the ERPs, CRMs, BI systems, Big Data and an arsenal of enterprise solutions. When we think about smartphones, the complexity is multiplied by the quantity and variety of operating systems and their versions, screen sizes and the features of the many devices.
THE IMPORTANCE OF TESTING
It is not in vain that the software quality is growing in visibility. How many businesses have been transformed into their digital form, where the entire operation of a company depends on the reliability and performance of the integrated systems and software applications? CINQ is aware of the importance of tests engineering and has a specialized area, dedicated and certified for this.
PLANNING, TECHNIQUES AND AUTOMATION ARE NECESSARY
With a solution defined and approved, begins the process of application development in the rhythm driven by the Scrum. Developing and testing teams work in harmony to ensure the quality of the generated code. The organization of tasks with the use of repositories and continuous integration allows real-time monitoring of the evolution of the software.
BEYOND THE FUNCTIONALITY
Just like a software project, testing requires planning, techniques and whenever possible, automation of software quality assurance processes. Test planning starts in parallel with the planning of software. Thus, specification errors can be identified before building the application, saving a lot of rework. Similarly, in each sprint, the tests run in parallel, ensuring the quality of each delivery.
THE RELIABILITY OF YOUR BUSINESS
The image of your business becomes a mirror of its systems, digital services and the overall application’s user experience. Therefore, ensuring that these applications provide an excellent experience is the mission of the Software Quality Assurance area at CINQ.
