Functional Testing:
Functional testing is a business preference for all projects – fresh implementation/enhancements, varying size and duration engagements. This demands enterprises to enhance the effectiveness as well as efficiency of functional testing by focusing on building strong relations with emerging technology and solution offerings.
Utthunga’s functional testing methodology is structured and introduced in early stage of software development life cycle (SDLC). We adopt the latest in testing techniques and tools from requirements phase to delivery. Requirements profiling, risk-based testing, model-based testing, automated test design, domain-based scenario suite, and dynamic test planning and scheduling are some of the examples to name.

Integration Testing:
Integration of different systems and maintaining consistency across different channels are major challenges in this world of transformation. Many organizations have noticed that the applications perform well in isolation whereas, industries come across challenges when they are integrated like interface issues.

Integration testing helps ensuring that interface points between applications are working as expected/ as per business needs and also focuses in enhancing end user experience with respect to performance security & quality.

Regression Testing:
Many Organizations face challenge in implementing frequent business changes while maintaining stability in existing system. These days’ organization demands project to be delivered with reduced time-to-market putting additional pressure on testing coverage. To reduce the time impact we need to arrive at optimal/prioritized regression testing, which can focus both on the change as well as the unchanged functionality helping in addressing risks, and also look in minimizing testing costs with time in mind.
At Utthunga we utilize the capabilities of industry-standard testing tools & techniques. We have built in-house test frameworks (can be called as accelerators) and procedures to analyze the impact of change in turn reducing the likelihood of failure.

System Testing:
Systematic test approach is a key part in ensuring application functionality and other utilities. We have to ensure data flow across applications accurate and aligned to the business needs.
Utthunga always rely defined systematic methodology throughout the project life cycle. i.e., This methodology starts with business requirements and maps requirements to test cases and test execution creating a strong relationship with traceability matrix enabling the validation of all functionality confirming the tests performed as expected.

Usability Testing:
Usability and Accessibility plays a key role in today’s digitally transformed world wherein the communication channels and information flow happens from intranet to mobile and cloud. The focus should be to enhance the usability and accessibility of content.
Utthunga’s validation and verification services ensure enhanced customer experience and also by aligning with industry standards and guidelines.

Compatibility Testing:
With the continuous shift in technology and changes in hardware/ software platforms, it becomes so essential that the application/product undergoes test in various environment.
We at Utthunga provides comprehensive Compatibility Testing services that can be performed across a variety of Operating Systems, browsers, hosts, servers, hardware, different versions, configurations, display resolutions etc. to ensure the application/product behavior is not altered with changing configurations.

Key goal of any organization w.r.t to product/application delivery is to achieve faster time to market and increase test coverage to ensure quality. Achieving all of these for varying size of the project is a challenge – Test automation becomes an effective solution in achieving the expectations of the organizations/clients. However, it is also associated with some of the challenges like availability of trained resources with many test tools in market, maintenance efforts (for agile product), License costs, complex test data management etc.
