Development Process

Our development process follows agile methodology.  Agile development methodology promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, and delivery; time-boxed iterative approach and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It’s a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the development cycle.

Among several agile development methodologies, we use SCRUM which is an iterative, incremental framework for Software Development.

 

Benefits of using our SCRUM Agile Methodology:

The Scrum development Team negotiates the sprint goals with the Product Owner along with fellow Scrum Developers and commits on building the increment.  Maintains the Scrum Artifacts to help the team members understand where they are towards meeting their commitment.  Scrum Developers work collectively regardless of their skills or title to build an increment of work that is “Done”.  Building the done increment includes:

  • Negotiating and understanding the agreements in SPBI (sprint product backlog items).
  • Communicating and adjusting their plan with fellow Scrum Developer every day.
  • Writing Tests and software algorithms.
  • Designing and creating User Interfaces.
  • Automating testing and tasks that at repeatable each sprint.
  • Doing everything in between to get the SPBI “done” (Database, API, clouds, classes, etc.)
  • Finding ways to improve the way work is done each Sprint through retrospectives.

Mobile Application Testing Services

As part of our development, we follow Test-driven development (TDD). It is a software development process that relies on the repetition of a very short development cycle:

  • The developer writes a failing automated test case that defines a desired improvement or new function,
  • Then produces code to pass that test and finally refactors the new code to acceptable standards.

 

Our test-driven development centers on two basic rules:

  • Never write a single line of code unless you have a failing automated test.
  • Eliminate duplication.

Compatibility testing:

Compatibility testing assures that a given application works as intended with selected devices with different screen sizes, resolutions, and internal hardware (memory size, processor speed, and button/input differences). While testing, define the feasible compatibility combinations of devices and interfaces for a specific testing assignment, in concurrence with the customer’s requirement.

Interoperability testing:

Interoperability testing includes testing of different functionalities on different mobile agents such as messaging, call setup, sharing conference, and video messaging etc.

 

Functionality testing:

Functionality testing of a mobile device includes controls, storage media handling options, and other operational aspects. Functionality testing of a mobile application is a black-box type of testing to assure that the application is functioning as per the business specifications.

 

Usability testing:

Usability testing encompasses mobile interface testing, application navigation testing, and intuitiveness of the application, consistency, and soberness of color scheme. The usability designs; task analysis, and alpha charts of an application are studied as part of the product knowledge transfer and assures the usability requirements of the application are fulfilled.

 

Performance testing:

Performs the load, capacity, and stress testing of mobile application servers. The objective of load testing is to determine whether the application can sustain the required number of users with acceptable response times. The objective of capacity testing is to benchmark the maximum load of concurrent users an application can sustain before experiencing system failure while the objective of stress testing is to validate an application’s stability and reliability over an extended period of time.

 

Localization and Internationalization testing:

The objective of this testing is to assure that the localization and internationalization features are supported by the devices and applications as per specifications. Communication testing: The objective of communication testing is to verify the protocols.

 

Data exchange and synchronization testing:

This testing focuses on data exchange and synchronization among different mobile devices, PDAs, and PCs using infrared frequency and USB ports.
