Set the benchmark of your application through world class QA

Functional testing is a key ingredient for enhancing the quality of the developed software. The risks of releasing a new product without meticulous QA have greater threat now than ever before because of the change in expectations and demands of the end users. The course of Functional Testing is to completely understand and clarify project scope and objectives and systematically understand product functionality. It aims to find how well the system executes the functions it is supposed to execute-including user commands, data manipulation, searches and business processes, user screens, and integrations.

Our objective at Patmo Technologies Ltd is to measure the performance quality of the functional components. We perform a systematic framework based methodology while conducting the tests. Our testing procedure covers the obvious surface type of functions, as well as the back-end operations. By implementing automation framework we are able to drastically reduce the risks of application failures and shorten the testing cycles between releases. It also gives us the flexibility to test the existing scripts on multiple browsers and operating systems, allowing us to perform a rigorous compatibility check.

The core functional testing is certainly a rigorous process that is an amalgamation of functional testing, Database testing and Regression testing that gives you a refined overview of the functionality of your product and assists in bettering and upgrading the software that fulfills the expectations of the users. Functionality testing falls within the scope of black box testing, and as such, should require no knowledge of the inner design of the code or logic. Functional Testing is always concentrating on customer requirement and it targets the business goals to give better results.

At Patmo Technologies Ltd we have well operational servers geared to create various client environments at our premises, and we utilize Web-enabled defect management tools which reflect transparency on the testing cycle.

AUTOMATION TESTING

Automated testing is conducted by means of programmatic scripts. The Automation Testing is carried out by the tester who uses software to test the software instead of conducting it manually. Basically Automation Testing is used to re-run the test scenarios that were performed manually, quickly and repeatedly. Just like Regression testing, Automation testing is used to test the application from the perspective of load, performance and stress. It is the most suitable type of testing when a product changes frequently, but has large functionality. However, automated testing comes with its own benefits and hence it expands the aptitude of testing team and increases the competence of their work in quality control of the software product under test.

Patmo Technologies Ltd provides genuine benefits and finest results by offering a resourceful platform of automated web application testing.

LOAD TESTING

Load testing is a software testing technique used to examine the behavior of a system when subject to both normal and extreme expected load conditions. Load testing is intended at examining the performance of the system under load of a certain number of concurrent users. You must have heard about applications and websites crashing down and the sole reason for such occurrence is that the load has been higher than what has been expected and accounted for. However, Load testing helps to establish the boundaries of good performance during maximum load.

The objectives that load testing aims to fulfill are to expose the defects in application related to buffer overflow, memory leaks and mismanagement of memory. Another target of load testing is to determine the upper limit of all the components of application like database, hardware and network so that it could manage the anticipated load in future. The issues that would eventually come out as the result of load testing may include load balancing problems, bandwidth issues, capacity of the existing system. The success principle of load testing is based on the completion of all the test cases without any errors and within the allotted time frame.

At Patmo Technologies Ltd, we can help you optimize your application’s performance by documenting the results as explained above. Our objective is to enhance the efficiency of the application by making it work well.

For the process, we utilize some of the following recognized tools:

  • JMETER
  • Grinder
  • HP LoadRunner
  • Automated QA Test Complete

PERFORMANCE/STRESS TESTING

Performance testing is performed to ascertain how the components of a system are performing, given a particular situation. It becomes more than necessary to conduct the Stress Testing at the early stages of the software development so as to avoid costly reworks in case of stressful launching because every software and application has certain load bearing / operational capacity, beyond which it might find itself devoid of substantial computational resources. The performance testing includes load, stress, scalability, reliability and volume testing. Stress testing is performed by increasing the load cycle’s duration and the number of hits, but in the same time by reducing the response time. Using these different test types our performance testing approach allows making the applications more reliable by identifying where, when and under what circumstances the application breaks.

The following process ensures the software’s robustness:

  • Conducting a general study of the behavior of the system under extreme loads.
  • Examining the handling of errors and exceptions under extreme load.
  • Testing the benchmark and standard set for the application.
  • Testing the system capacity.
  • Inspection of certain areas of the system or its components under the inconsistent load.

Patmo Technologies Ltd considers in guiding the clients on following and enhancing performance in terms of applications, networks, servers, stress and others.

USABILITY TESTING

“Supposing is good but finding out is better”

The prime motto after conducting these various tests is to make your application usable. It is coherent that the products are prepared for the users and these very users are to review and pass the final judgment which decides its accomplishment. Usability testing has now become a vital part of any project. The usability testing is determined by the ease of use, pleasantness and speed. It includes testing the products navigation that should be easily visible and consistent on your application. While testing the content for making it legible is also an important aspect.
Usability Testing involves real users who utilize the product and provide their feedback on the same.

At Patmo Technologies Ltd we help you divert your time and resources on your operations while we take up the entire process of usability testing. The process of Usability Testing is taken forward with discussion with stakeholders to conduct an initial interview that is followed by test planning, running-through the test, conducting the test and finally offering test analysis.

MANUAL TESTING

Accomplishing a Manual Testing is equal to going back to the basics. It suggests testing the software without using any automated tool or any script. In this type the tester takes over the role of an end user and examines the Software to identify any un-expected behavior or bug. There are different stages for manual testing like unit testing, Integration testing, System testing and User Acceptance testing. Testers use test plan, test cases or test scenarios to test the Software to ensure the completeness of testing. Manual testing also includes exploratory testing as testers explore the software to identify errors in it.

We thoroughly study the system under test, develop test plan and define test cases for manual testing.

To your assistance, Patmo Technologies Ltd offers both the manual and automated testing service. We always make an effort to strike poise in a way that each of these testing approaches are being employed for the relevant testing spheres.

COMPATIBILITY TESTING

Compatibility Testing is one of the crucial phenomenon in software Testing. There are a range of operating systems that are being used by your prospective users. The researchers say that there are in all 10% of users who prefer utilizing the non-standard browsers. It becomes more than essential to be aware of how does your site appear in different browsers as it would be unwise to lose that 10% of potential clients.

Compatibility testing allows verifying the application in different browsers, on different OS, with different software and hardware. Patmo Technologies Ltd constantly improves and advances compatibility testing as one of the most important for the end users.
