Challenge

Underperformed Manual Testing

Quality Assurance is vital before launching any IT project, as it helps the developers team avoid major & minor bugs and deliver the most decent user experience. The financial company has its in-house team to perform Quality Assurance tasks. However, given that finding bugs and coding logic errors require hyper attention to detail, manual testing was proven to have many flaws:
  • Costly & Time-consuming: A significant amount of work was involved in the process. Manual testing requires a couple of experienced testers, who need to spend several weeks to spot each slight abnormality.
  • Unknown risk coverage: Humans are prone to make mistakes when it comes to detailed tasks. The same happened for this project when the outcome still contained bugs & flaws that affected its user experience. Moreover, since all jobs were done manually, there were no ways to ensure that all risks were fully covered.

Solution

We have created a digital QA-testing system that has these significant changes:

A better-suited QA testing methodology

The new QA testing system follows the Agile testing methodology instead of the Waterfall methodology as the end client’s in-house team previously used.

While the two methodologies are both commonly used in the QA-testing world, the Agile method has better served large enterprises’ needs. Its main advantage over the waterfall methodology involves QA testing in every step of the development process, before, in & after. Testers and developers also work closely with each other, which helps deliver better testing performance.

Sophisticated testing automation system

To improve testing time & precision, we have developed full continuous testing automation using a risk-based approach & on-site testing center.

  • Continuous testing software: allows rigorous testing in every step of the development process. Aligned with the agile testing methodology, by preventing significant flaws right from the early stages, the software helps improve code quality, speed up time-to-market & mitigate risks effectively.
  • Risk-based approach: Take different levels of risks as a core center of the quality assurance activities. Consequently, the approach helps businesses focus on critical aspects for better legal conformity & business risk management.
