Result from it tailor-made strategiesthat enable all important information to be passed on to all internal and external stakeholders in a timely and well-founded manner.

A tester integrated in the company supports not only the post-test, but throughout the entire development process. He increases the quality, for example, through his presence in the clarification of requirements and stand-ups of the team or as a valuable sparring partner in development.

In addition, his background knowledge ensures groundbreaking discussions about automation and quick feedback. In addition to specific test activities, his participation offers important coaching and knowledge sharing about quality in the team.

The early and ongoing Involvement of testers and test consultants ensuresfor risk minimization and high customer satisfaction.

Pipeline planning (1 week)

DevOps, Continuous Testing, Continuous Deployment ... Agile teams must regularly provide high-quality and value-adding solutions. In the case of frequent code changes, the quality is continuously measured by build & release pipelines - so that the team can receive information as quickly as possible.

In this consulting assignment, our quality advisor works with your team to set up an initial pipeline or to improve existing pipelines. The BREDEX consultant pays attention to an interaction between process, communication and tools that is tailored to your team in order to always receive up-to-date information about your quality.

Test automation away from the user interface (3 days)

Many teams only use end-to-end or UI automation. This leads to untreated risks and slowed feedback loops. You can already test many risks at the API or unit level. Our quality advisor evaluates your existing or planned tests in order to provide suggestions for risk treatment on other levels. The consultant also supports you with the example implementation of other test levels in your project.

Our consultant will advise you on test automation strategies, which consist of different levels of tests:

  • Unit tests: quick, small tests of the individual functions. They run quickly and inexpensively and provide information about the quality of ongoing development within seconds.
  • Integration / Web-API tests: Tests of the interfaces between functions or subsystems. They reduce the risk of problems with the interaction between two correctly functioning parts of the software. These tests run slower than unit tests, but cover other risks.
  • UI / end-to-end tests: these tests operate the software in a similar way to a user. You check entire workflows through all subsystems and components. UI tests run even slower than API or unit tests, but they also provide important information about quality.

 

Your advantage:

  • Quick outside view for objective support
  • Advice from experienced consultants
  • Concrete steps and suggestions to improve quality and make it sustainable

SOS release help (1 week - 1 month)

Your project is about to be released. And unfortunately the testing came a little short. A quick test phase before software delivery is actually a good idea, isn't it? Not necessarily. Various factors can mean that this phase is shorter or hotter than intended. And we all know: you can't test quality into it. But - with suitable approaches and the right guidance, you can find out the most important information about the quality of the system.

The trick in situations like this is to have a clear focus on actual testing. Automation, planning or time-consuming documentation of tests are not required here. This is exactly where BREDEX Text Consultants use exploratory testing and session-based test management to maximize the hands-on experience with the software to be delivered. In a very short time, the BREDEX consultants enable your team to test effectively and with priority. In addition, they offer support for test execution and the short-term test strategy in the release phase.

Your advantage:

  • Clarity in the hot phase before the release
  • Prioritization of the requirements and attributes to be tested
  • Organization of test sessions with the team to receive test results effectively and in a timely manner
  • If necessary, several BREDEX testers to increase the number of people in the test phase

Quality assurance in a project for connected car services

In an agile service team, our test advisor acted as an agile tester and quality consultant for various services in the connected car environment.

In this context, he was responsible for the automated UI tests, API tests and exploratory tests. Mob testing approaches for the API tests also contributed to consolidating the quality concept in several teams.
