In an SDLC, there are several testing frameworks that help to assess if the application is progressing in the right direction. It could be in terms of usability, security, compatibility, performance, integrations, etc.
Organizations whose bottom line depends on quality software development need a robust methodology in place to assure bug-free product delivery for their clients. They must integrate a means to monitor the productivity and quality of software testing with a standard set of appropriate software testing metrics.
Vulnerabilities in software applications are common. 85% of security incidents happen at the application layer. With the right security measures, the operations and development team can discover these vulnerabilities and fix them at an early stage in an SDLC.
There are 400 million active websites on the internet and all these websites are susceptible to vulnerabilities of one kind or the other. Even the microscale misconfigurations, such as improper validation, disclosure of server versions, and using vulnerable software libraries can lead to drastic security issues. To avoid the consequences, there is Application Security Testing.
Automation is driving the decline of mundane and repetitive tasks. And this holds absolutely true for a software development cycle.
There is a provision to automate almost every aspect of a software development cycle- coding, testing, and even deployment.
There are some key DevOps practices that enable organizations to automate and streamline the software development processes. Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD), Continuous Deployment, Microservices, Infrastructure as Code (IaC), Containerization, Monitoring & Logging are a few of them.
There is no limit to what technology-led solutions can do for businesses and consumers. That is why organizations are spending a large share of their IT budget on application development.
Every industry & organization is transforming itself digitally. In this process, they are taking their existing, offline userbase to an online platform. The best part is, these online platforms can capacitate as many users as a business want. But, there is a catch.
Most industries advancing their digital transformation are increasingly relying on Quality Assurance (QA) and testing. The banking sector is taking a cue from several industries' digital roadmaps to maximize their prosperity from technology adoption. At the end of the day, quality-assured digital banking services help meet the expectations of technologically equipped customers.
Load testing is a subset of performance testing that checks a system for its availability and response time during a concurrent load of users. It ensures that an application is able to handle the load without compromising with performance.
