For the past decade, the software industry has put substantial effort in improving the quality of its products. This has been a difficult job, since the size and complexity of software increases rapidly while Customers and Users are becoming more and more demanding. Despite encouraging results with various quality improvement approaches, the software industry is still far from zero defects. There is lot of scope for improvements for structured Independent Testing practices. Testing Services being one stop shop for all Testing Solutions can help organizations to improve the quality and overall efficiency and reduce the cost and turn-around time of software Testing.

Enterprise Testing Services
Testing Center of Excellence

Testing teams at various organizations have evolved organically over time. As part of this evolution, different teams follow their own set of processes and templates. This silo-based approach is sub-optimal. It inhibits the sharing of best practices across teams within your organization. The overall test organization is typically not aligned with your IT strategy. But still, you need to build and operate an enterprise-level testing organization with robust standardized processes.

Our Testing Center of Excellence (TCoE) serves all applications software testing requirements. Our TCoE streamlines the testing processes and eliminates the risk & uncertainty involved in haphazard testing. The TCoE will adopt a core-flex staffing model. The core team is dedicated to a group of applications who will retain knowledge and ensure continuity throughout the testing process. In addition to the core team, a flex team may be deployed or withdrawn to address changes in work volume. This flex team pool is trained in and made available for use across applications. This core-flex model helps to optimize the overall team size without impacting the quality of testing. The core-flex team will be supported by our technical Centers of Excellence (CoE’s), which will address niche testing requirements like test automation and performance testing. The TCoE provides overall cost optimization by leveraging tools and infrastructure across different application teams and by building a central knowledge repository containing all relevant artifacts.

Managed Test Center

Novature’s Managed Test Center (MTC) spans the applications of an enterprise or multiple Lines of Business (LoBs). The MTC delivers increased value to your business by accelerating testing, increasing software quality and reducing cost.

Test Consulting

Testing in most organizations is usually performed in an ad-hoc manner across different pockets of the organization. Designing an ideal test process customized to your IT organization can be a challenge. Novature offers its Test Consulting services to help you design your QA organization.

  • Enterprise Test Consulting – Novature’s team of expert test consultants engage various stakeholders in your organization across management levels and departments to design a customized enterprise testing roadmap. This detailed roadmap helps you build an efficient and enterprise-level centralized testing group.
  • Test Lifecycle modeling – Novature’s expert testers work closely with your testing teams at an application or project level to set up processes and methodologies across the testing lifecycle. As part of the engagement, Novature will help create an ideal testing lifecycle, tailored to your requirements.
  • Testing Maturity Analysis – In this shortened version of the Enterprise Test Consulting service offering, Novature will deploy its standard consulting framework to perform a thorough analysis of your testing maturity. Based on this analysis, you may extend the engagement, with Novature providing an implementation roadmap.
  • Testing Offshorability Portfolio Analysis – Novature’s team of experts will conduct a detailed analysis of your application landscape to calculate and prioritize the offshorability of the testing of your applications.
  • Test conceptualization for large programs – Effectively preparing a test strategy is crucial to ensuring the success of testing in large programs. We have observed that some companies want to retain their testing teams, but still require high-level support in planning large test programs. Novature’s test managers can help conceptualize test strategy documents for such programs.

The below diagram depicts the Testing Methodology that explains 5 different phases of Testing Lifecycle, key activities we perform and the deliverables.

Agile Delivery Model – An Overview

Agile software development describes a set of principles for software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organizing cross-functional teams. The key characteristics of Agile Delivery model are

  • Agile development or Agile Methodology refers to a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through mutual collaboration and discussion between cross functional teams.
  • Agile promotes frequent inspection and adaptation, encourages teamwork, self-organization, accountability, and incorporates best practices that allow delivery of high-quality software.
  • It also emphasizes a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals.
  • Agile encourages the alignment of project tasks and accommodates change within the project lifecycle.
  • Agile methods break tasks into small increments with minimal planning, and don’t directly involve long-term planning.
  • Iterations of 1-4 weeks are called ‘timeboxes’. Each iteration is considered a full SDLC. Due to small pieces of work done in each iteration, a full product might need several iterations.
  • Each iteration aims to produce a working product with minimal bugs.
  • The team structure is very different from corporate line and staff organizations.
  • The teams are mostly cross functional with development, testing, businesss and a customer representative being in the team at all times.
  • There is emphasis of face to face communication over written documentation. Remote teams can do video-conferencing as well.
  • Members take responsibility to deliver the required functionality and internally decide what tasks will be done by whom.
  • Most agile teams work in a single open office to facilitate communication
  • Teams are generally small (5-9 people). Large software projects may need multiple small teams working together
  • Each team has a customer representative present at all times. He is appointed by stakeholders and helps resolves issues
  • After each release, the stakeholders and customer representative review the progress with a view to eliminate defects, align output to requirements and get ROI
  • Agile methodology emphasizes working software as a measure of progress and not delayed software. It emphasizes timely releases instead of waiting to fix all the bugs
  • Hence, there is less documentation being created. And most requirements are created in ‘user stories’ and ‘discussion boards’
