Every software testing firm nowadays regularly applies an agile methodology in its operations. The surrounding environment is evolving continuously, and this helps QA remain in step with the needs of the IT market. Agile training applies to all members of the QA team but mostly affects the day-to-day work of the testers. The use of agile software provides an opportunity for PM, developers, and customers to see the project’s common image, understand the time spent, identify the tasks and set priorities.
Even though the approach applies to all concerned individuals, the testers are mainly responsible for the significant part of the functional.
**Which Specific Qualities Does a Tester Possess to Get Ahead in Agile Testing?**
* Logical thinking and analytical mindset.
* Determine and advise which tests at which layer should be automated.
* Ability to perform accurate decisions with regards to the available test outcomes.
* Skills to well collaborate inside the different departments of the company.
* Realization of the user’s expectations.
* Mobility presence despite the changeable business environment.
The above features are quite normal and react not only to a tester but also to a developer, whose function in Scrum is similar to the test team members. In fact, their work is linked and has the same end goal-to ensure the availability of the highest quality product. And according to some experts, the tester’s role has already gone beyond the test case writing and their performance. In today’s experience QA the testers, performing software testing, will think like the end-users, as well as the owner of the product title to ensure the qualitative outcome.
**As for Agile Application Development, a variety of development roles:**
Work with the developer in pairs. This is a case when the developer deals with a tester: They log and stipulate the results of the changes.
**Analyst role:** A tester should not only know about the specifications and appreciate them but should also make suggestions himself to develop the product before its launch. Its function in automation. Automated test fulfillment simplifies the life of the tester and helps speed up the test process.
**Research role:** For example, one should take additional steps, automated regression testing, to ensure that agile QA testing is successful.
**Discoverer role:** Before the product is created, it often happens that a tester fulfills a test protocol, e.g. checking the specifications of the company.
All approaches should be tailored for each organization and each project to conduct mobile testing, desktop testing or web site testing effectively. Test & QA is an independent, offshore research software company based in the United Kingdom.
*This is how our testers apply agile methodology at every phase of software development.*
Mobile applications are becoming the vital aspect of corporate competitiveness so rapidly that many web-based apps are taking the ‘App Only’ route. It is the desktop program that will be discontinued and the services that will only be made available via mobile device. This has exacerbated the current product delivery problems, because customers have very high expectations of the application quality which they install on their devices.
Mobile applications are global entities now. They’re everywhere-in e-commerce, e-bidding, e-learning, e-reservation, e- banking, and social media. Mobile application use is booming around the world today as web app users expect the same web services to be accessed continuously from their mobile devices when they are away from their computers.
Applications are expected to be:
* User Friendly
* 100% uptime 24X7
* Supportive on any mobile platform
**Why we need Mobile Testing?**
Mobile applications can either be standalone applications or business apps. Standalone apps are easy to check as they don’t need to connect to external networks, whereas business apps are designed to carry out complex tasks of interacting with external resources using HTTP or WAP protocols, complicating the testing process further.
* Increased demands on mobile components increases integration testing
* B2B and B2C the mCommerce and mShopping security test
* Cross platform and cross browser testing
* Testing for localization and internationalization
* Performance tuning for better user experience
Mobile testing has lots of advantages for testing mobile apps on the real devices, from high accuracy testing results to no false positives. Mobile testing has an ability to test application in real environment and conditions. To provide better user interface to end customers.
Mobile Application Testing is more challenging and different than that of the traditional desktop web applications. Mobile Testing’s biggest obstacle is the constant growth in the range of mobile devices; mobile operating systems, software updates and other modification calling for a large collection of test permutations. It raises the quality control costs for the organization accordingly.
The key concerns for planning a testing strategy can be summarized as follows:
* Maximize the test scope by combining emulators and physical devices optimally.
* Choose an efficient automated testing platform that reduces the regression testing costs.
* Consider the different research types.
Use the network software to simulate network access and other network parameters to execute the test processes primarily on Wi-Fi networks.
To build without testing is a very insensible approach. Many of the negative mobile device reports was focused on crashes, battery failure and poor performance on the network. An integrated mix of manual and automated Mobile Testing will solve these problems and help the developers prevent application failure. Mobile Apps and Services have become a strategic strategy for organizations. Enterprises often find it very easy to get their delivery plan going wrong. With Mobile Testing and Quality Control not implemented from the very early stages of growth, this can easily trip up businesses.

How Test & QA Test Strategy is Different From Others
Test Strategy is an outline/approach or a high-level Static document that is usually created by Project Managers which consist set of guiding principles that enlighten the testing approach, testing objectives, Methods of Testing, Total Time, Resources required in the project, and testing environment.
***“The goal of testing is not just to find bugs, although to make sure all the mentioned specifications are working as expected and none of the features are behaving abruptly what is not expected to do.”***
**How Test&QA strategy is different from others:**
**Quality Assurance:** Understanding the nature and requirement of the business is extremely important for a Quality Assurance of a Product/Software/Application. As a result, we have highly experienced business analysts and project managers who understand the business requirement very well and they work with our testing professionals jointly to test a product in such a manner that it properly supports the business model.
**Involvement of Testers in Early Stage:** Most of the organizations involve their testers in the final stage of the project, but in Test & QA we align our testers at an early stage of every project, which helps them to visualize different quality issues throughout the entire cycle and they can provide their valuable early feedbacks which can greatly contribute to reducing unnecessary delay in time-to-market and high amount of additional expenses.
**Development of Thumb Rules:** Our project managers and business analyst team develop thumb rules at an initial level of every test strategy and they document them in one place. So that our testers use these thumb rules throughout the project.
**Highly Experienced Resources:** In the testing industry, it is very important to have highly experienced resources and Test & QA have that capability. We provide the best industry specialist who has in-depth hands-on exposure to work with UK based clients. These professionals have good knowledge of the agile methodology testing process. These professionals are also aware of all the rules taken care by the UK govt. For GDPR/Accessibility.
