How do we perform testing as an Agile team?

To help clients roll out high-quality software without missing tight deadlines, a1qa has developed a tailored approach to testing:

  • 1

    At the beginning of every sprint, we ensure that all the work will be finished by the end of the sprint in order to get a completed increment.

  • 2

    To speed up release cycles, we start preparing the testing infrastructure and documentation simultaneously with the development team producing new features.

  • 3

    We keep the test documentation model up-to-date and optimize it to support each sprint, as well as maintain records throughout the iteration.

  • 4

    We run continuous testing to meet the quality gates criteria, including test automation checks and unit/integration testing, and ensure that all the features are implemented as required.

  • 5

    We introduce test automation at the early SDLC stages to reduce efforts on regression testing and focus on the exploratory testing of new functionality and user experience.

  • 6

    We apply Agile testing quadrants when creating a holistic test strategy.

  • 7

    We take part in backlog refinement sessions along with the development and business analytics team to get clear requirements and eliminate the need for any further modifications.

  • 8

    We run sprint reviews and retrospectives to reflect on the sprint outcomes and identify ways for improvement.

We drive Agile implementations within multiple industries:

  • eCommerce
  • eHealth
  • Media and entertainment
  • Real estate
  • BFSI
  • Telecom
  • IT and software development
  • eLearning
  • Automotive and logistics

We use industry-leading tools for test automation, performance, and CI/CD

  • SoapUI
  • Docker
  • Apache JMeter
  • Zephyr
  • WebDriver
  • Jenkins
  • Jira
  • Cucumber
  • AWS
