Testing Services

With the world having gone mobile and social, companies are fundamentally rethinking how they are structured and how they do business. While employees expect to connect seamlessly to corporate applications and each other in a device agnostic manner, customers expect innovative new apps and faultless, efficient services. An increasingly competitive business environment has meant that organizations need to be agile and respond quickly to these customer needs and simultaneously control the cost of operations. This translates to more pressure on QA and Testing teams to speed things up. However, with the legacy systems and their complex interplay with the new digital technologies that exist in most organizations, speeding up testing is easier said than done.
 
Marlabs’ independent testing services can help customers improve the quality and performance of their software applications along with faster time to market and reduced cost of testing. Our end-to-end outcome-based testing process is aligned with the client’s strategic and operational goals to provide maximum value. We offer a wide range of testing services including life cycle testing, test consulting, test automation services and specialized mobile and enterprise application testing services. With our advanced test methodology and expertise in popular industry tools - both commercial and open source - we can accurately assess testing requirements and find best-fit solutions. 
 
Other advantages include:
  • Dedicated Testing Center of Excellence (CoE) to identify and build competency in emerging frameworks specific to testing
  • Ready-to-deploy solutions that reduce cost and efforts in test engagements by using our knowledge repository, which includes a large number of reusable assets such as automation framework scripts, test suites, test strategies, domain specific test scenarios and methods
  • Testing solutions that deliver healthy return on investment (ROI), for short-term as well as long-term projects/goals
  • Experience in Risk and Contingency Management, cross-functional process/team interactions, diagnosis of failure, and Design Fault Resolution procedures
  • Adoption of Shift Left testing process to ensure early defect detection
  • Improved software quality, reliability, and predictability enabled by our test processes, knowledge management, and domain focus.

Functional testing is a business necessity for all projects, irrespective of size and duration. Organizations need to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of functional testing by focusing on accelerated and optimized testing. Marlabs’ functional testing methodology is well structured and easily adaptable. It has been developed and refined over the course of our experience across multiple industry domains and project types. The agile methodology ensures early involvement of testing teams in the SDLC, thus reducing cycle time and adopting Shift Left Testing practice. It is also risk-based, which ensures optimal coverage and discovers defects early.

Marlabs built a hybrid Test Automation framework using an open-source test automation tool (Selenium) for a leading provider of e-learning services. 

 

Performance testing is critical to business applications since it influences business revenue, customer satisfaction, and the overall credibility of the organization. Applications often fail to meet end-user expectations when performance testing is carried out at the very end of the software development lifecycle. Marlabs test methodology recommends performance engineering at every stage of the development lifecycle to ensure adherence to performance requirements. Marlabs has delivered significant value in many projects by involving early and working in tandem with development teams. Our performance testing solutions not only support traditional approach of testing by engaging test agents locally but also support various cloud models and network virtualization.

Marlabs provides a cost effective solution for a major US based solutions provider to the insurance industry with maximum scalability and minimum downtime.

 

Enterprises are increasingly moving applications and infrastructures to the Cloud due to advantages such as scalability and flexibility. However, this requires stringent performance testing on the Cloud. Marlabs can provision and provide performance testing environment on the Cloud—Public/Private/Hybrid Cloud Model—with the required hardware and software configuration for hosting the application on the servers. We also install commercial and open source monitoring tools during test execution. This is faster as well as cost effective. 
 
Marlabs helps customers make better decisions on cloud migration. We also validate the performance of applications after migration and identify bottlenecks. We leverage our partnerships to test and perform infra benchmark testing exercise on applications hosted on different Public Cloud such as Amazon EC2 Cloud, Microsoft Windows Azure Cloud, GoGrid Cloud, Google Cloud Compute, and Rackspace Cloud. Both testing environment and application under testing are hosted in the same Cloud.

Performance Testing resulted in better performance of the rating application, identified performance bottlenecks, and reduced the defect turn-around time for a media client. 

 

Our Usability Testing services enable customers to maintain and enhance the usability of their websites while providing enhanced customer experience. We also ensure that they comply with statutory regulations and W3C guidelines. 
 
We leverage our Usability Testing expertise to focus on:
  • Understandability - attributes of the software that bear on the users’ effort to recognize the logical concept and its applicability
  • Learnability - attributes of software that bear on the users’ effort to learn the application
  • Operability - attributes of the software that bear on the users’ effort for operations and operation control
  • Attractiveness - the capability of the software to be liked by the user
  • Memorability - when users return to the design after a period of not using it, how easily can they establish proficiency
  • Errors - how many errors do users make, how severe are these errors, and how easily can they recover from the errors.

Our Compatibility and Interoperability Testing can verify whether the application under test interacts and functions as expected with the required software and hardware combinations. This ensures that customer applications/websites can run on different platforms with multiple software and hardware components.
 
A common cause of software failure is a lack of its compatibility with other application software, operating systems, and environments that causes it to behave differently from the requirements. Marlabs address this issue by ensuring that the application/product is mapped to the requirements on different industry browsers, OS, hardware, web-servers, app-servers database servers, and is certified to function as intended in the respective environment.

Today’s dynamic Business environment demands advanced business intelligence and analytical solutions to make quick and effective decisions. A continuous and comprehensive framework is required to test and validate these high-volume and high-complexity Data Warehouse (DW) or Business Intelligence (BI) systems. Testing of the BI/DW system —not only before production movement, but also on an on-going basis—is of critical importance. Continuous DWH validation ensures that decision making is not happening across broken systems.
