Software Product Quality Engineering

Quality Assured

The importance of non-functional quality engineering for performance and security needs cannot be over emphasized. Failure to meet functional requirements can be lead to financial loss, reputation damage, ineffective service operations and theft of intellectual property.

Digitization is pushing the software and ISVs to adopt cloud, big data, analytics, social and mobility technologies to create their applications. Digital assurance needs to keep pace with the intricacies of each of the digital technologies. Apart from the conventional testing, cloud based applications need to be tested for very high scalability, geographic redundancy and resistance to security attacks.

Test data generation and management play an important role in testing big data and analytics solutions. Testing social interaction require unstructured natural language test data.

The Aricent Remote Mobile Testing platform address the challenge of validation a mobile client applications across a wide range of mobile devices and operating systems. Performance of mobile backend applications needs to assured for a large number of mobile users simultaneously accessing the backend services.

Our Services

Aricent offers software product quality engineering services that holistically encompass the assurance of quality requirements throughout the software product development lifecycle stages including product definition, implementation, testing and deployment. Our software product quality engineering services enable our clients to innovate faster by significantly reducing time-to-market for launching new software products and applications. We leverage DevOps and automation to cut down the test cycle time, reduce total cost of ownership, improve productivity and accelerate delivery of cutting-edge software products and applications.

Some of our services include:

Test Consulting

Assessment and strategy to setup a dedicated test CoE.

  • Test process consulting - Setting up an agile testing organization
  • Test Center of Excellence (CoE) setup - Assessment and strategy to setup a dedicated test CoE
  • Test strategy consulting - Addressing the testing needs of the entire software development cycle than focusing on QA phase
  • Test automation consulting -  Automating functional and non-functional test requirements
  • Performance engineering consultancy - Left-shifting the performance testing and engineering activities to improve product or software performance
  • Security engineering consultancy - Addressing security needs using secure product development lifecycle to improve security in a product
  • Tool consultancy - Assessment and selection of the right tools required to carry out testing efficiently
  • Digital transformation assurance - Strategy for testing products based on next-generation technologies of social, mobile, big data, analytics and cloud

Use Case: Test Center of Excellence: Customers frequently face duplication of effort when implementing test automation across multiple product lines. Realize economies of scale using a centralized Test Center of Excellence (CoE) that unifies test strategy and automation framework across multiple product lines reducing effort.

Managed Testing

End-to-end testing services including testing strategy, planning, execution and reporting

Aricent managed testing services enable its clients to focus on the core business, while it takes the responsibility of providing end-to-end testing services including testing strategy, planning, execution and reporting. Aricent forges a long-term strategic relationship with full responsibility of testing at enterprise or program level. In the past, our managed testing services have helped our clients reduce the total cost of testing by 57% over 3 years through continual process improvements, automation, expertise and operating models. The cost reduction was achieved while maintaining a very high quality where less than one bug/year leaked to field after testing during three years of engagement. Our best-shored delivery model - onshore, near-shore, off-shore or hybrid - provides our client with unmatched satisfaction.

Security Engineering

Develops secure software systems for web, mobile and cloud-hosted applications.

Security engineering is a structured approach to developing trustworthy and resilient software systems. Aricent offers security engineering services to develop secure software systems for web, mobile and cloud-hosted applications. We follow Microsoft’s Secure Development Lifecycle (SDL) to address security requirements and build more secure software applications rapidly. Our approach puts focus on the security requirements early-on rather than relying exclusively on vulnerability scanning and penetration testing to secure the application after the application has been developed. This includes “shifting-left” SDLC by emphasizing on security requirements early in the development lifecycle and carrying out requirements review, threat modeling, design and code reviews, code analysis, followed by vulnerability scanning and penetration testing.

Use Case: Security engineering of a product requires complete lifecycle security assurance – requirements, design, development, testing and operations. Implement secure software development using manual requirements and design reviews, mix of manual and automated code analysis and reviews, threat modelling, vulnerability analysis and penetration testing by certified ethical hackers and secure deployment.

Performance Engineering

De-risks programs by addressing performance requirements early in the development cycle.

Performance engineering is an approach to assure and validate performance requirements throughout the product development lifecycle by “left-shifting” the activities related to performance requirements. Most programs emphasize on testing single user functionality first before addressing non-functional requirements. Aricent’s “shift-left” performance engineering strategy de-risks programs by addressing performance requirements early in the development cycle. Our approach emphasizes on the performance early-on, starting from requirements and architecture validation, code reviews, and then moving to unit testing and component testing with pre-populated database, instead of solely focusing on multi-user performance testing at the end of the program.

Use Case: Performance and capacity engineering of a product that requires complete lifecycle performance assurance – requirements, design, development, testing and operations. Address performance engineering using requirements review, design review, code analysis, workload modelling, performance test automation, application performance profiling and tuning.

Agile and DevOps Testing Services

Ensures faster delivery of features and reduce software delivery time.

Aricent offers agile and DevOps testing services to address the testing requirements across the complete software development lifecycle encompassing continuous integration, delivery and deployment. Our agile testing services leverage DevOps approach to ensure faster delivery of features and reduce software delivery time. We use test automation to respond quickly to the changing requirements and enhance the time taken to market for launching the new products and services. Our agile and DevOps testing services also help clients reduce operational expenses and improve quality through early elimination of software defects and bugs using our “shift-left” strategy.

Our Differentiation

  • Trusted partner to a wide range of companies from tier-1 independent software vendors to Internet service startups in the consumer/enterprise software, media & entertainment solutions, e-commerce services and Internet enabled services space.
  • Holistic approach to quality assurance where quality is the focus of all the stages of software development lifecycle, rather than only the testing stage. This allows adoption of a shift-left quality engineering where bug prevention is the emphasis.
  • Agile & DevOps methodologies rely on a very high degree of test automation to realize continuous integration, delivery and deployment. Aricent’s Continuous Testing Enabler and DevOps Enabler allow realization of highly automated software product delivery pipelines. Aricent offers a unique cloud-based remote testing platform to facilitate mobile applications testing on multiple platforms and devices remotely.
