Mobile and web projects are becoming more and more agile, with manual testing methods being replaced by automated processes. It’s a sign of the times: unattended automation in DevOps pipelines is needed for successful development projects today. But which testing tools should you use? Answering this question is critical to building the proper testing strategy and to the continuous testing activities through each phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC) pipeline. The Two Main Types
Perfecto’s DigitalZoom™ Adds Support for Software Version Control with tools to speed up DevOps processes
How do you keep track of all the moving parts of Continuous Testing? Source Code, Test Scripts, logs, visuals, and other artifacts are created and collected during the all-encompassing processes of Continuous Testing throughout the DevOps pipeline. The amount of test data and number of artifacts are constantly growing and at the same time require traceability. We at Perfecto, see digital enterprises asking a key, fundamental question: How do we optimize testing activities in order to identify and fix issues as early as possible in the SDLC?
There are always new challenges in the mobile world and as mobile usage continues to dominate almost every business vertical (both native mobile-web), having a testing strategy that can be modified to incorporate new use cases and interfaces is crucial. Over the next few months I will dive into some of the hot topics and trends in the Digital sphere to look at the horizon. Today we will be talking about the Mobile UX and bounce rate.
We have all been waiting and it’s finally here: Star Wars’ “The Last Jedi”. I promise to only use the new Star Wars movie theme (plus a few Epic events and moments from the Star Wars trilogy) to express my excitement and correlate a story from the DevOps Galaxy. As a huge Star Wars fan, it seems only natural that I am highly influenced by this brilliant trilogy but in many ways, the force awakens and the last Jedi feel like an easy comparison to where our industry is heading at the end of 2017.
Bug handling in DevOps can be the make-it or break-it factor- because of this, I have gathered some of the best tips and practices to treat your bugs. 1. Triage Everything Investigate every bug to identify the root cause – there might be other bugs underneath Fixing bugs fast is essential for healthy automation, especially as part of today’s mature DevOps processes. That said, it is also important to make sure there is no other
Usage Based Insurance (UBI) is a trending field in the insurance industry. From a consumer point of view, it is clear the majority do not want to pay high policy rates in order to cover drivers that are considered ‘dangerous’. According to recent research, awareness and demand for Usage Based Insurance (UBI) is on the rise. The main commercial challenge for carriers these days is to reach untapped opportunities to expand UBI into markets beyond
The importance of achieving continuous quality visibility during Continuous Integration is growing these days. Release cycles are getting more frequent, there is much more to test in order to meet today’s coverage metrics (Did anyone said “DIGITAL”?) and the number of test cases is also growing (service logic/mechanism is built to scale and requires us to test more components). Walking the Agile path, we are required to calibrate our efforts to stabilize everything during a
A recent survey conducted by Perfecto reveals that ~40% of organizations spend between 4-8 working hours to analyze regression test suites post execution. That’s not a surprise, considering the growing number of factors that are required to be plugged into each cycle – mobile and web platforms, environments, user-conditions, and many more. To shrink the overall investigation time and decision making process, Perfecto launched its DigitalZoom™ product with the aim of offering a 3-layer
Drive Faster Quality Analysis Through Tags and Customized Test Code Quality visibility is all about logic. It should be fast, easy and mostly effective – if the dashboard or report that you’re using gives you the right ‘hint’ of what is the next move – then you’re all set. When it comes to gaining fast and efficient quality analysis, these are usually the pains we hear: Test executions - length as well as context-driven test
Communicating quality for your digital products across the organization is becoming a MUST. Having the ability to take data-driven decisions in real-time enables organizations to move faster and assure their customer digital experience. As activities are growing and teams become hybrid (as part of the move to agile workflows), it is hard to keep everyone on the same page. In most cases, team communications are increasingly noisy and overwhelmed by the large amount of data that
FY 2017 is just around the corner and it is that time of the year when technology trends and predictions are starting to spread all over. As your organization leadership is probably setting the strategic goals for 2017 inline with the market demands, challenges, and trends, it would be smart to validate your digital plans during this planning. Industry digitalization FY 2017 will involve dramatically the enablement of Digital Technology Platforms as Gartner, Inc. predicted
In Agile environments today, a great digital experience is a prerequisite. Organizations are expected to have an efficient mobile testing strategy and release apps quickly across devices and operating systems. However, without visibility into your test results, it's hard to deliver high-quality apps. What makes up a successful reporting tool? Consider these characteristics: It should fit into the Agile mindset of fast feedback and frequent releases. Accessible via the web and be self-generated on-demand by
