The goal of Functional Testing is to make sure that your application – website, app, database, or program – works, or functions.
How many websites have you visited that do not work properly? Or how often have you encountered websites that work on one browser, but do not work properly on others? Perhaps you have filled out a form and received the notification “Information provided is not valid,” but you are sure that you did everything correctly. And then there is the famous glitch that occurs on some websites if your name is Mr. Null, Ms. Test, or Mrs. Sample, and the website will not accept the name because it assumes it is not real.
These indicate situations in which there are many variables to test on your website or app. However, previous testing did not identify the issues to be fixed. At Iterators, we have the expertise to look for these situations. We also value people with diverse backgrounds that have special skills in looking for patterns and spotting issues that could impact your customers. In addition, we have the training to use specialized software tools that assist in looking for bugs.
We have a flexible, client-focused approach and can work with you in many different capacities:
- Perhaps you do not have a full-time testing team and need support for a project.
- Perhaps you need additional capacity for your existing testing team.
- Perhaps you have a specific requirements document and test cases, or perhaps you need test cases generated.
- Perhaps you need manual testing performed on new features, or someone to work with your Agile Sprint.
- Perhaps you need to identify and look at the areas of greatest risk using session-based Exploratory Testing.
We can provide support in several ways:
We can offer highly qualified software testers.
We can help with that.
We can conduct manual and automated functional testing, within your framework.
We can evaluate that.
The goal of Regression Testing is to make sure that modifications to your software do not break existing features (i.e., regress).
Why should an update cause an existing feature to stop working? Well, that happens all the time due to code complexity and other factors. (See an XKCD cartoon). We keep track of test cases for consideration when regression testing. This means our testers learn from previous experiences, which results in higher quality, faster results for you.
