Q&A with our Test Consultant - Ryan Dudley

1. How long have you been working in testing?

I've been in testing now for 6 and a half years. I joined nFocus fresh out of college as an apprentice at the age of 18 and never looked back! I've been exposed to a wide range of testing approaches and technologies and I've been able to work on a variety of different projects all with their own challenges.

2. What is your favourite area of testing?

Automation Testing - I find it fascinating how you can automate a task, removing the need to check that piece of functionality manually. This then allows you to have a great regression pack to be run whenever you like, giving you confidence when you are heading into a new release.

Transformation Journeys - Mutiny on the Project

Posted by Renée Elizabeth Mineart on 17/06/2020

Today we welcome back our popular guest author, Renée Elizabeth Mineart

I realised this week that I have a character flaw. Probably, one of many, if I’m being honest but let’s just focus on the one for now.

I first began to realise this last week after chatting with my line manager about some software we use in the office. Software that I detest and consider an absolute waste of time.

Digital Assurance - how to set up testing for your digital transformation project

Posted by The nFocus Team on 29/05/2019

At the heart of every Digital Transformation project or programme lays digital assurance, and within that quality assurance function hosts a team of able testers, but there’s always a fear that digital transformation will prevent businesses from fully committing to the process due to lack of resources being available. Most companies undertaking this exercise will set up a dedicated team to deliver the digital transformation allowing existing staff to continue with business as usual. Organisations can set up a test team and associate processes to accelerate digital transformation without any significant impact to existing projects by following key steps.

Digital Transformation Team Structure

Building a high performing team is never an easy undertaking. Building the test team for a Digital Transformation project is no different.

As with any project, when it comes to creating the test team, we need to start by considering the project and business needs. Depending on the project timing, it makes it easier if the Test Strategy has done this and is completed before the test team is built.
