Quality Assurance and Testing

HTSS believes in quality testing with expert minds and working on the science that employs test automation, coverage analysis, various methods of strategic testing, planning and execution. These features and more can better produce key codes and mature metrics. Our services will be an added advantage in filling gaps that were otherwise left unattended, take full responsibility and mitigate potential threats and those already there. We will integrate with the development department and work in coordination at all stages of testing.

Testing at HTSS can provide you with three distinct advantages:

Experienced Professionals

HTSS testing team has expertise & experience in a variety of domains and technologies.

Cost Saving

We provide world-class software QA and testing services at typically less than half the cost of maintaining your own Testing & QA setup - The offshore advantage.

Standards

Our testing team is constantly trained on latest software Testing and QA methods and techniques. Our knowledge and expertise are directly utilized in ensuring the highest quality standards needed for your software product.

We can

Our range of Testing Services includes:

Black Box Testing

Black box testing is also better known as functional testing and as the name suggests, this checks the overall functionality of the application or the software. The tester here is aware of the inputs and the expected results but not about the behavior of the program when it generates those results. The tester does the analysis on the basis of specifications given by the development team. Testers can perform this without looking into the code and program(s) used.

White Box Testing

We very well interpret the logic behind the application’s coding that has been put to use. The tests are based on the coding, parameters, different paths and several conditions.

Unit Testing

Unit Testing consists of dynamic testing procedures done by the developers at the initial stages of development and then given to the testing team and is the first responsibility of the developers and then of the testers. Unit testing is undertaken after the predicted test results are met or differences are explainable or acceptable.

Parallel/Audit Testing

Testing where the user reconciles the output of the new system to the output of the current system to verify that the new system performs correctly.

Functional Testing

Black-box type of testing geared to functional requirements of an application. Testers should perform this type of testing.

Usability Testing

This type of testing is user friendly and is subject to the target audience of how one will be using the software. This type of testing includes different phases which is a part of the overall testing. The testing staff undertakes user interviews, reviews, surveys, video recording showing the advantages while using the software and assessment of the techniques that are beneficial for the end user.

Integration Testing

Integration testing, is also known as black box testing which ensures that the application is working as per client requirements. Every component used is checked thoroughly, which involves development of test sets to check working of software components between different interfaces.

System Testing

Upon completion of integration testing, the Test Team will begin system testing. During system testing, which is a black box test, the complete system is configured in a controlled environment to validate its accuracy and completeness in performing the functions as designed. The system test will stimulate production which will occur in the "production-like" test environment and test all of the functions of the system that will be required in production.

End-to-End Testing

Similar to system testing, the 'macro' end of the test scale involves testing of a complete application environment in a situation that mimics real-world use, such as interacting with a database, using network communications, or interacting with other hardware, applications, or systems if appropriate.

Regression Testing

The regression stage of testing is to test the stability of the software and that it remains intact at all times. A baseline set of data and scripts will be maintained and executed to verify that changes introduced during the release have not "undone" any previous code. Expected results from the baseline are compared to the results of the software being regression tested. All discrepancies will be highlighted and accounted for, before testing proceeds to the next level.

Sanity Testing

Sanity testing will be performed whenever a cursory testing is sufficient to prove the application is functioning according to specifications. This level of testing is a subset of regression testing. It will normally include a set of core tests of basic GUI functionality to demonstrate connectivity to the database, application servers, printers, etc.

Performance Testing

Although performance testing is described as a part of system testing, it can be regarded as a distinct level of testing. Performance testing will verify the load, volume and response times as defined by the requirements.

Load Testing

Testing an application under heavy loads, such as the testing of a web site under a range of loads to determine at what point the system's response time degrades or fails.

Installation Testing

The installation testing process comprises of different stages where testing is done to check install or uninstall processes. This test is specifically done to test production readiness and how it is supposed to be installed. This test is done after the application reaches the client site. This testing procedure comprises of inventory of items required for the configuration which is carried out by the system administrator involved and they also check for data readiness and perform dynamic tests following this, there is sanity tests performed on the software developed.

Security/Penetration Testing

Testing how well the system protects against unauthorized internal or external access, willful damage, etc. This type of testing may require sophisticated testing techniques.

Recovery/Error Testing

Testing how well a system recovers from crashes, hardware failures, or other catastrophic problems.

Acceptance Testing

Acceptance testing, which is a black box testing, will give the client the opportunity to verify the system's functionality and usability prior to the system being moved to production. The acceptance test will be the responsibility of the client; however, it will be conducted with full support from the project team. The Test Team will work with the client to develop the acceptance criteria.

Alpha Testing

Alpha testing is the testing done by the end user on the verge of completion of the software design, development and testing by software testers. The testing process might include little changes required in the design and coding part of the software.

Beta Testing

Beta Testing refers to the final testing of the software done by the end user before it is releases to make sure no bugs are present that can hamper the software.
