Quality Assurance & Testing
Quality Assurance is an entire set of management and technical activities that ensure the product matches all requirements. In fact, QA is paramount at Suninformatic and everything we do comes down to Quality Assurance
We understand Quality Assurance as continuous work on making our process smooth, predictable, and controllable. We think that it is very important to keep it "step-by-step"; in other words, not only the steps themselves are important, but also their sequence.
Approach & MethodologyQA Testing Methodology is clearly defined at Suninformatic. Project Management, Maintenance of Time Schedules, Quality Assurance, and Software Engineering are some of the key areas we focus on in the Software Development Life Cycle process. Our exhaustive Methodology ensures thorough and effective QA Testing of the software products and applications.
Data Integrity TestingData integrity testing, a key component of QA testing, has to do with verifying the reliability of data procurement and storage methods in order to ensure that the data obtained is in the required format, and that it is reliable and consistent with the data expected to be present in the database. Data Integrity Testing also ensures that all relevant information is stored in a timely manner, thus avoiding data loss, which has the potential to prove catastrophic to a business.
Functionality Testing / Defect AnalysisA thorough review of a Client's applications needs and of their existing systems helps us develop the Functionality tests. These tests are performed by Suninformatic on the basis of our systematic methodology for Internal Documentation, Reporting, and Resolution of defects and bugs detected during the various testing processes. The analysis of these defects and bugs are carefully documented to provide our clients with:
- A Complete description of the bug/defect and the process of reproducing it
- A clear assessment of the usability of the product and its relation to the business objectives
- Critical data and information needed by the developers involved in debugging. This involves a cost/benefit tradeoff.
- Performance Testing
- Stress Testing
- In Stress Testing, the parameters typically tested are: Storage, Computing Time, Communication Capacity, and Database Recovery Time. This process drives the system to the very limits of its endurance in order to determine what features in the application design can fail during implementation. The features that do fail can turn out to be defects capable of causing disastrous failure.
Availability TestingAvailability testing involves testing the reliability of the network, database processor, memory, etc. This involves testing the capability to have the support for critical data required by the applications to be up and running in minimum standard conditions. All the architectural components that need to be available are also made sure to be present and functional components are recognized.
Response / Throughput TestingResponse / Throughput testing is used to test the load-bearing capacity of the system and to measure the response time and throughput of the various components of the system.
Compatibility TestingCompatibility testing addresses concerns regarding a product’s capability to interface with other software and hardware. Suninformatic is equipped to test Client products across a varied range of software and hardware platforms to evaluate the related issues involved in Compatibility Testing.
Usability TestingUsability testing is concerned with evaluating a system’s ease of use and the level of convenience it provides non-technical people to enable them to utilize the various tools and functionalities offered by the system. This helps users derive the maximum benefit from the system. Usability Testing further entails detailed analysis of the navigation system, the user interfaces, etc.
Onshore / Offshore QA and TestingThe Global Delivery Model of Suninformatic combines the advantage of offshore software development with direct control over the project onshore. In this model our onshore business staffs are based with our clients, while the development staffs are based offshore. Clients benefit by this model in the following ways:
- Onshore test/plan/design team in direct communication with client development team.
- Effective communication between client and offshore team ensured.
- Time efficiency
