Information security is of paramount importance in the days of internet use. The use of different web and mobile apps makes the system highly vulnerable to other kinds of cyber attacks. Vulnerable assessment is useful in recognizing various loopholes present in the system. The penetration testing contributes to being the proof of concept approach, which helps explore and exploit the vulnerability. Penetration testing and vulnerable assessment are recognized as the different kinds of vulnerability testing…

Each year many try to predict new trends in different spheres; communication, the economy, politics etc. So why should testing be any different. Sometimes predictions can be helpful; to set goals, to understand where the industry is going and many other reasons. We have brought together some predictions for testing and suggest some QA testing trends in 2021 that you need to be aware of. Will these predictions be right? Probably not but it starts…

Are you looking for information on how to make software testing easier, more standardized, and more productive — and are answers out there? Noel Wurst, software testing evangelist at SmartBear, shares his insights on approaching testing with the right perspective, avoiding mistakes, and finding the framework that will address your current needs. Is there a software testing framework that will work for every development team? Wurst: There’s really not one single source of truth that can provide…

Software testing verifies that the applications you develop do what you intend them to do, and it validates whether the application meets specifications. Software testing is also crucial for application security — it can reveal vulnerabilities that will put the application and your clients’ data at risk. Catching and fixing problems early is the most cost-effective strategy. Finding issues or experiencing a failure later in the development process — or worse yet, after the application…

To err is human. That’s never going to change. And that’s also why we need software testing. Your team will occasionally make mistakes, overlook conflicts, or have biases that perpetuate flaws. Software testing reveals errors that occurred during development and is vital to prevent subpar products from getting into customers’ hands. Along those lines, software testing also contributes to the reputation you are building in your market. Furthermore, software testing is vital to the efficiency…

Software testing is an indispensable part of software quality. It is crucial to support the SDLC, the abbreviation for Software Development Life Cycle. SDLC is a procedure to develop the application, with the right research, execution, planning and maintenance. Quality Assurance (QA) is a vital part of SDLC. QA is performed to evaluate different aspects of an app and validate the behavior of the software in various configurations of the software system. Software testing companies…

The results are in: Quality assurance (QA) testing quality is going up while costs are coming down. According to the latest edition of the World Quality Report, the share of IT budget allocated to QA testing has been falling year-on-year for the last four years. As the founder and CEO of QA Mentor, an independent software testing company, this trend isn’t setting off any alarm bells for me — on the contrary. Just as the report…

I recently bought my son his first car from a private party. The state of California requires registration within 10 days of purchase, which must be done in person at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). That 10-day window is too narrow for acquiring an appointment, which meant that I was going to have to stand in line. A very long line. Eager to register to avoid paying a penalty, I went to the DMV…

The world of work is increasingly remote. Even before Covid-19 shifted many companies into the work-from-home mode, Gallup noted that 43% of U.S. employees were working remotely (at least some of the time) in 2016. Freelancing has been accelerating much of remote work. According to Upwork, 35% of the U.S. workforce freelanced in 2019. Freelancing income is now nearly $1 trillion, roughly 5% of the U.S. GDP.  Software testing is both challenged by, and benefiting from, remote and distributed…

With the advent of Agile and DevOps development technologies, the software development industry is undergoing major disruptions. This has lead to the evolution of new testing approaches. Quality Assurance professionals have to rapidly adapt to the changes in the software testing industry to stay relevant. Here is a list of 10 software testing trends to watch out for in 2020: 1) Digital Transformation With Agile Businesses are undergoing digital transformation ever since data has become…
