Earlier creating a test was as easy as navigating through the application under test (AUT), but testing groups quickly discovered that the tests were of no use once the target application changed. Organizations can significantly reduce the duration of testing cycles by adopting the step-based approach to build manual and automated tests. This whitepaper provides insights on how AscentialTest automatically generates the test framework, enabling domain experts to design and create automated tests that are ready to execute without recording or scripting. It highlights: Step-based approach: Next evolution in test development Building Steps with AscentialTest Action types that are standard to the step-based approach Different ways to access test data from within steps and tests

Why is it significant to properly manage test environments? How should we do it? What are the best practices and strategies to use test environment management tools and services? Test environment management strategy involves guiding and managing the test environment hardware, software, databases, applications, and test data. Slowed testing and inconsistent results are caused by poorly managed environments while problematic, testing issues are caused by inadequate test data management. Most test environment issues can be boiled down by proper test environment management. In order to manage test environment efficiently, the following are necessary: A dedicated Test Environment Management (TEM) team. Defining the team terminology and sticking to it. Creating an easily accessible knowledge base. Defining the test environment strategy. Improving efficiency and productivity in testing. Test management tools that can assist the TEM. Download this whitepaper to build a stronger, better managed test environment which brings a reduction in production issues, increased productivity, and higher customer satisfaction rates.

An insight into the current testing challenges and trends, ways to approach a vast range of testing projects. The software testing industry is undergoing rapid and far-reaching changes driven by major shifts in the software development landscape.This creates a new set of challenges for testers to have the right balance between automated, exploratory, and user-acceptance testing, to help build great products. The traditional procedures and techniques that have served QA departments in the past are no longer enough. This whitepaper talks about tackling software testing challenges and : How the best testers break down the testing process into a simple trio of questions: why, what, and how. How to identify the right balance of testing methods to establish a comprehensive testing strategy. When and how to use exploratory testing to help address the pressures of modern development, continuous deployment and fast feedback loops.
