A New Approach to Rapid Software Testing
Agile Development brings with it the need for rapid software testing. The days of SDLC-70 and Waterfall are long gone and software engineering teams are implementing and completing features and fixes at faster rate than ever before. The challenge with Agile Development is to effectively couple it with rapid software testing. Consider that Agile Development typically focuses on a single feature, fix or story per developer. Once that feature is code complete the testing process begins. It would be easy to think that the only software testing needed is for that particular feature. However, that is not the case! Not only does that feature need to be tested, but it’s impact on surrounding features and all of the business processes that use that feature need to be tested. Add just a little complexity, like a database schema change, and you are very quickly into significant regression testing. How can you get your software testing aligned with your agile development processes? Rapid Software Testing might be the answer you’ve been looking for. TESTCo’s rapid software testing is quick to start, quick to deliver and very cost effective.
Offshore Software Testing Done Right
TESTCo has been providing offshore software testing services since 2002 based on my personal experiences and lessons learned with offshore work as early as 1996. I learned a number of hard lessons about what does and does not work with offshore software testing and have incorporated them into our daily, weekly and monthly service delivery processes. Gone are the days of getting up in the middle of the night for long conference calls where promises and agreements are made but seldom honored and delivered. Today, we deliver offshore software testing from locations around the world to match your timezone needs with daily deliverables and promises met.

Outsourced Software Testing – When Is It Right for You?
Outsourced software testing can either be a blessing or a curse. It all depends on what you need and why. The primary benefits of outsourced software testing are
- a short time to value,
- software testing expertise and
- independent verification using simple, standard software testing procedures.
The drawbacks to outsourced software testing are
- finding/selecting/managing the team that is right for your needs,
- the time of the learning curve and
- slightly higher price.
At TESTCo, our approach to software testing consultancy allows us to increase the benefits and reduce the drawbacks significantly. We place a high value of speed, expertise and reliable software testing procedures.
