Unlocking the Power of Testing Key Terms

Posted by Jane Kelly on 3/10/2023

A Closer Look at Testing Lifecycle and Key Terms

Hello fellow LinkedIn readers and welcome to thoughts of the day. As a child, I would often engage in word puzzles, anagrams and then later learning testing material we used mnemonics to remember things.

As a spin off at my tea-break, I wrote down the word ‘testing’ and reeled off some key terms that feature heavily in testing. All for some light-hearted reading based upon my many experiences over the years.

Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

Posted by Asmita Dixit on 3/10/2023

Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace: Are we there yet? 

Since the 1990s, employers have tried consciously to motivate their employees by engaging and empowering them to contribute to their organisations. This was the beginning of the “inclusion” wave which was stirred further by globalisation. As people from different cultures with different identities connected with each other through their employers, the evident “diversity” demanded attention. We, as employees, wanted to be treated equally irrespective of our age, race, language, gender, religious identity or who we choose to love.

The Challenges of Using Live Data for Testing

Posted by Tony Simms on 22/08/2023

The Vitality of UK GDPR Compliance

We have recently revised and updated our privacy policy to ensure that we remain complaint with UK GDPR and other legislations. It's essential that we do so if we wish to maintain the trust of our staff and clients but that got us thinking…

As the demand for efficient testing grows, so does the demand for relevant data to test against. We are aware that many of our clients use a copy of live data in their testing. It makes sense. Live data is relevant as there is plenty of it and it's quick and easy to get hold of.

Prioritisation, Impact Analysis & Dependency

Posted by Jane Kelly on 27/07/2023

How to Utilise Impact Analysis & Dependency for Maximum Benefit

Hello everyone, I wanted to share a few musings around prioritisation, impact analysis and dependency in testing. This topic is of great interest to me because it affects so much of our lives, we do it naturally with varying success; depending upon our core values and many other variables. These includes aspirations, age, upbringing, genetics, level of responsibilities, consequences and experience. We are all consumers and users subconsciously testing the products available on the market, prioritising those which are important to us and our perception of how much value is to be received in using those carefully selected products.

Reduce Test Documentation: Strategies for Success

Posted by Tony Simms on 27/07/2023

Expert Tips on Reducing Documentation 

As a test manager, for many years, my life has revolved around paper... requirements, documents and reports. I even had the poster!

I must admit I found comfort in my templates and checklists but then came agile! In an agile world, the focus is on delivering working software quickly and efficiently.  Agile methodologies encourage collaboration and communication between team members, including End Users, Testers, Developers and Product Owners. One of the key principles of agile is to value working software over comprehensive documentation.
