Feature Friday – Why You Should Start Using Test Execution Capabilities Today?
Consider the way ice cream flavors are all laid out at the local shop, or the clothing presented at the mall perfectly organized with color combination and size, the ability to pick and choose between well-presented options is, at this point, a requirement for clients and customers. And as with any product or service, testing should offer the same. As applications become the backbone of business, application requirements become more dense and functionality more critical for business prosperity. All of this can quickly become a nightmare for testing and quality assurance teams. This week’s Feature Friday interviews Joyal and Suraj who talk about Qyrus test execution capabilities, allowing clients to select browsers & devices, resolutions, and other testing specifics almost like an ice cream shop for all execution specifics.
Tell us more about the test execution capabilities offered by Qyrus, their use cases, and impact on testing and QA processes?
Test execution with Qyrus is so simple yet powerful that it becomes notable. Simply put you can specify a range of requirements including browser & device, variable environment, screen resolution, among more advanced customizations all within a few clicks placed behind an easy-to-use interface.
And as Suraj mentioned power, Qyrus allows for parallel testing meaning you can execute a test across multiple browsers or devices simultaneously. Furthermore, built into our business process testing feature, end-to-end tests can now be executed requiring multiple browsers and devices within a single test. And that’s not including the execution customizations.
Does the same or similar functionality exist without Qyrus, and how do competitors address similar problems?
Though the same functionality may exist, the difference is the simplicity of use and furthermore, the extent to which this functionality is implemented across the platform. To be more specific, Qyrus test execution capabilities can be found for not only web, mobile testing, and API testing, but Qyrus also allows you to stitch together all prior execution requirements in a business process.
Though this could be replicated, you would need access to all required browsers, then all required devices, not to mention the end to end process would have to be executed manually or custom scripts would have to be coded for parallel testing and business process testing, not to mention managing infrastructure.
What is the overall impact on the testing process when using Qyrus’ test execution capabilities?
Consider buying a new suit, you pick out different colors and sizes, and then execute when trying them on. Similar to that process build a single script to course a range of application functionality and then decide to execute across different scenarios.
Exactly, consider it a one stop shop for all your execution requirements. Maximize test case coverage by testing in parallel across a range of different browsers or devices firmly establishing application functionality.
How might test execution capabilities help testers, developers, and business technologists? What value can this feature bring?
Developers are often seen testing their applications reliability and functionality across browsers and devices as they develop and release new features. This provides much needed validation during the development process taking a shift left and enabling the production of higher quality applications the first time.
Testers can test applications across multiple customizable environments. That includes data sets, screen resolution and configurations, devices and browsers, and more. Testers have the freedom and ability to efficiently test applications end to end with access to custom configurations within clicks. Expanding coverage and allowing testers the ability to test every corner of their web and mobile applications.
Business analysts are often seen building configurations to match their business insights. That’s to say if most of their clients use the chrome and edge browsers to access their application, business technologist can run all tests simultaneously across both of those browsers. This enables proper user experience across required browsers and devices.
How do you see test execution capabilities impacting day-to-day operations across an organization?
The day-to-day impacts of this feature are definitely prominent, especially when you consider the usage. Upon every execution users are able to choose from a range of customizable browsers and devices. These varying options, across daily executions, can bring a lot of deviation to testing creating a range of usage and testing scenarios. This not only increases test case coverage but maximizes application functionality.
Not to mention Web, Mobile, API, and Business Process tests all have test execution capabilities meaning this feature is found across all Qyrus testing modules.
Having multiple ice cream and clothing options is nice, but not necessarily a make or break. When considering testing and quality assurance, this concept becomes significantly more important. More execution options directly mean more test case coverage and higher quality applications. The consistent knowledge that your application is functioning properly across browsers and devices is essential for application and business integrity. Allowing for a range of execution options is essential for the testing and quality assurance process. Join us next week as we continue to explore Qyrus features and standards that enable faster testing cycles, and higher quality application development.
