Digital Transformation - Top 5 Must Do's For Testing

Posted by Phil Edwards on 19/03/2019

Unless you’ve been hibernating for the past couple of years then you’ll be fully aware that Digital Transformation is at the top of every IT Directors list of things to do. Companies today are facing a couple of big challenges, staying ahead and on top of new technologies and at the same time providing outstanding customer experience. To be clear, Digital Transformation is the process of using new or modified business processes and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements by use of new and advanced technology.

The Need For Automated Security Testing

Posted by Scott Summers on 5/03/2019

IT teams and testers have been challenged by automated testing for decades now.  It seems to me that many organisations haven’t really cracked the nut yet with regards to functional automation and many (too many) automated testing efforts fail to meet their objectives, budget and stakeholders’ expectations. Expectations seem to be lower for load and performance testing. I’m not sure if this is because it’s perceived to be more difficult or the risk is perceived to be lower or both. Either way I don’t think that’s true, but that’s for another post. There isn’t much conversation happening yet about automated security testing - yet. I find this strange considering 47% of companies surveyed for this year’s World Quality Report said that enhancing security is part of their IT Strategy. The number of security breaches is increasing – the 2018 Cyber Security Breaches Survey shows 43% of businesses in the UK experienced a security breach in the past year.

The Robots Are Coming – You’ve Been Replaced…well not so fast R2D2

Posted by Phil Edwards on 19/02/2019

We’ve all seen sci-fi movies where robots take over the world, that is until Will Smith (or similar) steps in at the eleventh hour and saves the day. But like a lot of movies made, they do have a good knack of portraying what the future might hold, whether that’ll be a home robot for doing the daily chores to an all singing all dancing fully autonomous home.

A How-To Guide For Test Planning

Posted by Matthew Fullwood on 5/02/2019

Test planning, it’s that task testers are often asked to perform at short notice and frequently without enough information. It’s something that sounds like it should be easy, but all too often turns into something more challenging. As testers, we also find that we sometimes become accountable based on a test plan that was formed in a hurry without enough information to begin with. Is there anything we can do to avoid this?

Tech and Testing Trends for 2019

Posted by Phil Edwards on 22/01/2019

As another year starts, we can look ahead to what will be trending in 2019. We all know that ankle gracing trousers, wearing brogues without socks, growing a hipster beard (again) and heading to Greggs for a vegan sausage roll will all make the headlines, but with tech trends it’s a little different. A few years ago, we predicted Multi-Cloud (now commonly called Connected Cloud), Big Data (Data Analytics), AR and Cyber Security would be prominent, which to be fair they are still front runners for making the top five, but the way in which they are adopted and implemented has somewhat changed due to other factors that complicate but enhance the IT landscape.

Do You Test Like A User? Why Not?

Posted by Renée Elizabeth Mineart on 15/01/2019

If we were to visit the town where I grew up, I could take you to any place in that town without having to use Sat Nav. I wouldn’t even have to glance at Google Maps to find my way.
