Ta3s API Testing Services

APIs are widely used in businesses for developing products, it is key to accelerating value, improving application performance, and extending services and goods to the widest possible audience.

There are many businesses out there that build software and tools that rely on pulling data through open APIs to help streamline a business process in some new way. Most companies today (large or small) are running their business using diverse applications systems. The need to tie these systems together is becoming increasingly important. APIs are a way to tie these diverse systems and provide a unified view to run the organization seamlessly. The better the API, the more you can integrate the systems and run your business more efficiently.

APIs also expose data for use by apps and the developers that create them. They make enterprise assets reachable by apps, and they’re the tools that enterprises use to add a digital layer to their interactions with customers, employees, and partners. With the theme of sharing/exposing data, industry-specific API ecosystems are growing rapidly in several industries such as retail, financial services, telecommunications, and healthcare. API ecosystems allow companies to expand into new customer bases and niches that they may not be able to reach on their own.

API adoption has grown exponentially, from about 9000 APIs in 2013 to over 16000 in 2016. This tremendous growth can be attributed to the fact that firms are realizing immense business potential in APIs. APIs decrease effort to scale businesses, improve agility, se accessibility of solutions, and provide customizations.

The Approach

API testing mostly comprises of two types of testing, manual/functional testing and load/stress testing.

To address the 1st part, it is important to find out how well the APIs perform during normal use or ordinary call volumes. If an error occurs during normal use, then this could indicate that the API is not functioning correctly. This test helps locate and eliminate the most problematic bugs or failures very early in the development life-cycle.

Another purpose of these tests is to provide a baseline for API testing, which can then be used for higher-level stress tests. During load/stress conditions, the APIs still function or fail according to certain specifications. If it fails outside of these specs, then there could be a problem with the stability of the APIs in such load and/or stress condition.

Ta3s works closely with the client team to formulate the test plan and strategy, including and not limited to the items below:

Ta3s Cloud Testing Services

To save on infrastructure and bring down the operational, administrative and capital expenses, organization across the world slowly upgrading their infrastructure usage on cloud. Primarily, this requires a key focus on the quality of applications in the cloud environment addressing “cloud-based provision of infrastructure” by cloud service providers and, addressing “hosting of applications in the cloud environment” by application service providers.

Cloud computing offers economic advantages, speed, agility, scalability, accessibility and flexibility and innovation. Organizations have started to look at cloud computing as a strategic move that impacts their businesses, rather than just as a cost-effective approach. CXOs are constantly adapting their IT strategies so as to leverage the advantages of the cloud and effectively reduce their infrastructure footprint, reduce OPEX, CAPEX and licencing cost. Organizations are becoming more responsive than ever by embracing cloud computing for their software, solutions, applications, and infrastructure. Due to the growing trend of organizations adopting a digital business strategy, the IT industry is witnessing a strong growth of cloud adoption indicating a shift away from legacy IT services to cloud-based services.

Cloud Testing is a focussed testing cloud-based applications that use resources found in the cloud. By resources, we mean any element (hardware, software and infrastructure) necessary to carry out the tests. Cloud testing provides an end-to-end solution that transforms the way testing is done and can help an organization boost its competitiveness by reducing the cost of testing without negatively impacting mission-critical production applications. By leveraging a cloud computing solution for testing, organizations can shorten provisioning time because the cloud enables provisioning of test servers on demand. This helps ensure unused servers are not sitting idle.

The Approach

For cloud testing practices, Ta3s perform a careful test planning, test execution, and test management to derive the desired ROI.

    Ta3s DW, ETL & BI Testing Services

    To stay relevant in the business, today’s business dynamics demands advanced Business Intelligence (BI) and analytical solutions to make quick and effective decisions. Added to the demand, additional challenge is posed by the explosive growth in volume of information with majority of the information is in unstructured format, the complexity arising from disparate information sources and the nature of information presented.

    With the growing criticality of BI and Data Warehouse (DW) applications, data inconsistences in underlying applications can lead decision makers to make poor, uninformed and malicious decisions. To avoid such anomalies, it is imperative to have a robust validation process to avoid these pitfalls

    Considering the increasing complexity of DW/BI systems and their lengthy implementation cycles, testing often tends to be undermined. But testing of DW/BI system is vital to ensure information accuracy, reporting efficiency and data security, among others. The quality of a BI system is only as good as the quality of its underlying data. Inconsistent coding, duplicate entries, missing data values, failure to integrate data from multiple applications are some of the frequently reported issues that makes DW/ETL/BI testing a growing necessity. Moreover, ETL systems constantly evolve because of alterations in the source systems and business rules, changes in business requirements, and constantly expanding data.

    Ta3s In-Sprint Automation Services

    As more and more enterprises are adopting new digital technologies with renewed focus on digital transformation with a clear mandate of speed, agility and quality, there are not many options open for the enterprises but to transform their testing team by means of infusing a rigorous in-sprint automation practices and agility in their behaviour. Testing is no longer a “later stage” activity, rather, testing has to remain hand-in-hand with development, ensuring “done-ness” at all the time.

    Agile development requires that manual and automation testing for new and existing features be identified, scripted and executed during the development sprint itself. This essentially leads to a regression test suite that gets built side-by-side with the features being developed and can be executed on in-sprint code, on potential release candidates (on staging environment) or on production setup. If development and testing teams are to march together in-tune in this fashion, sprint after sprint, testing team not only have to be ready in time, but they also have to be fully geared-up to automate the stories.

    One of the key objectives of in-sprint automation is to encourage continuous delivery, where small changes and updates can be tested and deployed with ease and speed. In-sprint automation becomes inherent in the process to support continuous delivery and continuous integration. This helps to lay a foundation for a strong infrastructure and robust application for the customers, thereby avoiding operational delay and costs. In-sprint automation helps businesses bring down cost and time as well as improve quality and promote scalability. It facilitates consistency, predictability and efficiency. This directly impacts the bottom line of the business, instills confidence in the team and the customer. Audit and regulatory bodies can get historical compliance metrics in a streamlined manner via automation, which can help the enterprise get quality accreditations more smoothly, thereby enhancing their market credibility.

    Ta3s Risk Based Testing Services

    In today’s fast paced era, the IT industry is running on “fast track mode” and many of the industry leaders are looking for quicker solutions and product deployment. The entire team is hurrying to ship the products out of the door. While there is nothing wrong in doing things this way, it does become a nightmare for the test teams who must accept the fast-mode timelines and deploy the product to production quicker and faster.

    It’s always been a challenge to build a robust regression test suite for a particular release where the changes are known but the impact of those changes are hard to ascertain. Many questions ponder one’s mind, like:

    • I do not have enough time to test the entire regression test suite, what to test and what not?
    • Should I just test the impacted functionalities or the entire regression test suite? How much testing is enough?
    • Can I skip few of the test cases falling under the area where the code not been touched?
    • How do I prioritize and focus on functional areas most likely to fail owing to complexity, history or new components?
    • How can I test everything needed to be tested in the given timelines and certify the product is ready for deployment?
    • What are the business impact if I do not test few of the functionalities?
    • How do we reduce the testing effort? When do we stop testing?
    • Can I take some risk and do a different level of test planning to overcome all these issues?
    • And, many more…

    Some industry leaders are willing to take on known risks than delay the time-to-market. In the IT industry, the testing fraternity is looking for alternative approach to overcome this overdemanding proposition. To overcome this hurdle “Risk Based Testing” approach been adopted by many of the organizations.

    Risk-based testing helps organizations to optimize testing by developing, prioritizing and executing test cases according to the risk factor. Risks are identified for key features of the application, then mapped over to test cases, which are executed by priority.



    The Approach

    The most notable difference between traditional and risk-based testing approach is that risk-based testing brings formal risk assessment methods to the usual testing process.

    Ta3s helps organization at varied level of Risk Based Testing, at a minimum, Ta3s assures:

    • identifying the risk
    • Assess the risks by calculating the likelihood and impact each requirement could have on the project taking the defined criteria's like cost, schedule, resources, scope, technical performance, safety, reliability, complexity, etc. into consideration
    • Identify the probability of failure and high-risk areas
    • Risk profiling is done to understand the risk capacity and risk tolerance levels
    • Prioritize the requirements based on the risk rating
    • Risk-based test process and plan is defined
    • Appropriate testing approach and test design techniques are applied to design the test cases in a way that the highest risks items are tested first. High-risk items are tested by the resource with good domain knowledge and industry experience
    • Test cases are also designed to cover multiple functionalities and end to end business scenarios
    • Test cases are executed according to the priority of the risk item
    • Exit criteria is evaluated. All high-risk areas fully tested, with only minor residual risks left outstanding
    • Risk-based test results are reported and metrics analysis are performed
    • If feasible, risk-based automation testing is planned and performed
