Functional Testing


Functional testing is a key element for enhancing the quality of the developed software. The risks of releasing a new product without rigorous Creative Business Labs have greater implications now than ever before because of the change in expectations and demands of the end users. Finding Independent Creative Business Labs testing partners, who is not biased by the development unit is crucial to the success of a quality product. At Creative Business Labs, we value this and, being an autonomous body, we are able to report the transparent view. Our objective at Creative Business Labs is to measure the performance quality of the functional components. We practice a thorough framework based methodology when conducting functional, GUI, Database and Regression testing.

Performing functional testing services at the user interface level is crucial as it can reveal a number of deficiencies not immediately apparent when conducting a source code review. First priority is given to testing the application’s usability rather than the complexity of the application’s internal workings. Regardless of the quality of the underlying code, if the user interface doesn’t work, the result is an inefficient and frustrating experience for the user.

We have leveraged our internal framework with the right mix of automation tools and our home-grown methodologies. This has resulted in a huge cutback in the testing cycle time between releases and more than 30% reduction in the amount of effort spent in testing.

Our Creative Business Labs Testing Team is also cross-trained and exposed to various verticals that we support, be it BFSI, Retail, Education, Government and Publication. Our focus has always been to improve the quality of the product while ensuring a cost-effective test cycle. Our domain knowledge, recommending and using automation and frameworks at the right time and well defined Creative Business Labs methodology yield a YoY engagement cost reduction of 10-20%, subject to a few other factors at the customers’ end as well.

We have seen that by implementing our automation framework we are able to drastically reduce the risks of application failures and shorten the testing cycles between releases. It also gives us the flexibility to test the existing scripts on multiple browsers and operating systems, allowing us to perform a rigorous compatibility check.

Our dedicated testing labs have well equipped servers geared to simulate various client environments at our premises, and we utilize Web-enabled defect management tools which reflect transparency on the testing cycle. This also allows multiple teams working in different GEOs to track the defects in real time.
