4ward can offer its customers an advanced and customized software testing service and guarantee a high quality level of applications.
- Rapid detection of anomalies at the early development stages and subsequent reduction of the release times and costs
- Test automation in order to guarantee the required quality during the whole application life cycle
- Achievement of project objectives without undesirable costs
A dedicated team guarantees the Testing-as-a-Service using the latest technologies offered by Microsoft regarding software testing, starting from management and execution of functional tests to implementation of performance testing and load. This approach allows to test local systems or “on the cloud” in a quick and flexible manner, thus focusing on the real business needs.
The testing area is fully integrated with 4ward Application Lifecycle Management area and through the use of Team Foundation Server it is possible to provide customers with detailed reports on the quality of developed software and traceability that starts from the requirement to the single line of test that implements it.
Through the use of test tools provided by Microsoft (Visual Studio 2010 and TestManager 2010), we offer the correct implementation of strategies for testing of applications during the development phase. We remember that the phase of testing is placed in the life cycle of any software and should always be done carefully and in detail before the release of the product and its approach with the end user so that it could be possible to obtain excellent results and consents.
The presence of this Microsoft application perfects the union between the activities of the developer and the tester with the purpose of creating a product that meets the expectations of the end user.
The ability besides of testing automation also increases the speed and accuracy of a testing process, especially in regression testing. This is very important and helpful not only for testers but also for the developer because in this way it is possible to carry an accurate and valid examination on the application under development, depriving the most possible errors, anomalies and undesirable effects, what is determining safe and satisfactory final results for the client.
The progress of the tests and reported anomalies is being constantly and automatically monitored through reports and dashboards, enabling you to always know the level of application quality.
Web Performance Tests determine the speed, scalability and stability of a system or a web application through the reading of certain characteristics such as response time, throughput and utilization levels of resources involved. The result is to ascertain the performances of a web application, its potential, checking, just in case, any anomalies.
Load Tests have the main purpose of determining the manner in which the application responds to the various levels of usage. A load test allows an access to data related to the performances of applications through modeling and simulation of different load scenarios, such as a predetermined number of virtual users accessing the system simultaneously from different types of networks and performing certain operations, thus allowing to analyze in advance the behavior of the system in a real production scenario.
