Application Testing Services – fortifying the groundwork to fly high

Listen on the go!

The existence of software-based applications has become integral to our lives, so much so that we now expect most things to be now just a tap away. 

Customers are only concerned about the end product. They expect the products to make their lives easier and hassle-free, instead of being full of technical glitches that make them unusable. While this magnanimous difference appears in the end product, it starts taking shape from the very conception of a software. The way an application is conceptualized, designed, developed, engineered, and tested contributes to what the customers experience at the end.  

Organizations making software applications and offering digital services are concerned about the end user experience, which would in turn deliver high ROI. A seamless, glitch-free software application would yield excellent user experience. The link connecting these two aspects and making it possible for both end users and the organizations to attain their objectives is end-to-end application testing. 

Gartner describes Application Testing Services as a comprehensive term used to capture all types of verification and validation services to support quality control and quality assurance (QA) of applications. Verification, which is typically an internal process, is the evaluation of whether or not a product or a service complies with regulation, requirement, specification, or imposed conditions. Validation is the assurance that a product or service meets the needs of the customer, which typically involves acceptance and suitability with external customers. 

Irrespective of the software technology, development methodology, or tools employed, software application testing is essential for ensuring the success of the end product among the users. By assisting the eradication of critical defects from the application, software testing and QA empowers organizations with the confidence to deliver a high-performance application. 

According to Gartner, “The demand for intelligent and highly automated testing services is driven by the need for continuous quality excellence at a lower cost. In the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide, for 2020, Cigniti has been positioned as a Niche PlayerThis is the 6th consecutive year Cigniti has been positioned in the Magic Quadrant. Gartner recognizes Cigniti’s test automation and platform expertise as a pure-play testing provider.
