Tag: Application Coverage
Introduction Software test automation has been a cornerstone of software quality for decades. However, the traditional approach to test automation and maintenance has been plagued by high costs, limited resources, and the need to prioritize critical test cases. In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and especially generative AI has emerged as a game-changer in the
Testing and the CI/CD Process In the post, Continuous Testing: Required But Not Enough, our CTO Kevin Surace explored the necessity of Continuous Testing, but also its shortcomings. As he covered there, continuous testing requires a range of automated testing approaches, covering unit tests, API and integration tests, as well as more complete end-to-end tests.
Application Coverage™ is the new gold standard metric of testing completeness, having supplanted the old-school metrics of Test Coverage and Code Coverage. This is because Application Coverage mimics user experience and can only be comprehensively achieved via generative-AI. Test Coverage and Code Coverage are limited because they are human dependent in terms of test conception,
Generative AI is a rapidly growing field with the potential to revolutionize software testing. By using AI to generate test cases, testers can automate much of the manual testing process, freeing up time to focus on more complex tasks. One of the leading providers of generative AI for software QA is Appvance. Appvance’s platform uses
For the better part of 20 years, the e-commerce QA test industry has known that every one-second delay in response, they can lose up to half the page audience. Not because the user bought somewhere else, but because they became distracted. Today’s distractions are probably much higher than they were when those original studies were
The cost of underperformance in delivering quality software is steep. In addition to interrupted in-app experiences, bugs often contribute to high rates of customer churn and can lead to a damaged brand image. Users expect highly functioning apps with no bugs or issues, and apps that don’t provide these qualities are quickly deemed irrelevant and
Every day I hear the same question: “how can I improve my coverage with little effort?” Of course, this is a loaded question. What coverage do you mean? There might be (at least) four ways to think about coverage: In the past we defined them this way: So that brings us to modern testing which
