Performance Testing

Singularity Partners performance testing services are designed to meet your needs at any stage of the software development lifecycle, in order to identify and resolve performance issues in the application.

 

Singularity Partners draws a substantial amount of performance testing expertise from diverse applications, technologies, and businesses using industry leading performance testing tools, both commercial and open source.

Performance Testing

Performance testing determines or validates the speed, scalability, and/or stability characteristics of the system or application under test. Performance is concerned with achieving response times, throughput, and resource-utilization levels that meet the performance objectives of the project or product.

Load Testing

Load testing is a subcategory of performance testing that is focused on determining or validating performance characteristics of the system or application under test when subjected to workloads and load volumes anticipated during production operations.

Soak/Endurance Testing

Investigate the impact of load over long durations on responsiveness and system performance. This is done to investigate Memory Leaks with-in the system.

Stress Testing

Stress testing is a subcategory of performance testing that is focused on validating performance characteristics of the system or application under test, when subjected to conditions beyond those anticipated during production. Stress tests may also include tests focused on validating performance characteristics of the system or application under test when subjected to other stressful conditions, such as limited memory, insufficient disk space, etc. These tests are designed to determine under what conditions an application will fail, how it will fail, and what indicators can be monitored to warn of an impending failure.

Cloud Performance Testing

Performance testing, monitoring, and tuning of cloud are the key buzzwords nowadays. We provide expertise and easy to use cloud based SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) performance tools that test, analyze and monitor all aspects of the web infrastructure to identify current and potential issues. Our cloud performance testing includes load and stress testing

Cloud Security Testing

Security is of paramount importance in cloud based applications. Data from one organization should not be visible to other organizations. Apart from this, data visibility should be controlled based on the user’s roles in the organization. Implementing security in SaaS models is a challenge, especially when the database is shared by more than one organization. Singularity Partners cloud security testing comprises of benchmarking with OWASP top ten security threats, determining risks and severity.

Functional Testing

Singularity Partners philosophy of testing is centered on the ‘Shift-Left’ philosophy where, we introduce testing early in the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) to identify defects up stream, rather than detecting them at the time of system testing. Our testing activities span each phase of the application development life cycle – Business Requirements, Design, Build, Test, Final Preparation and Go-Live. We employ proprietary testing techniques and tools such as requirements profiling and validation, risk-based testing, automated test design, test case design and optimization, test metrics to measure the quality of testing and software quality and dynamic test planning and scheduling.

Manual Integration and System Testing

Our Integration Testing ensures that all related systems exchange data seamlessly, work flows between the systems are working correctly, and to confirm the system’s ability to satisfy the business intent. Our Black Box approach to System Testing validates functional requirements of systems, by covering all paths through the application, based on varying data and actions of the user.

 

Regression Testing

Our regression testing provides maximum test coverage with minimum number of test cases leading to minimal cost of appraisal and risk. We design regression test packs based on risks, in order to achieve a balanced trade-off between early ‘go-live’ and 100% testing, and ensure significant savings in time and money.

End-to-End Business Scenario Testing

Our E2E testing focuses on testing the entire system for complete business processes like Order-to-Cash; Procure-to-Pay etc. and covers B2B and B2C.

  • Mobile environments differ – unlike the traditional wired environment in PCs with high memory capacity, mobile phones are wireless devices with wireless infrastructure with a software exclusively designed for low memory phones operating on a wireless environment

  • Deliver higher quality apps – increase consumer satisfaction and fulfill their expectations and requirements – all of which lead to increased mobile revenue and profits!

  • Get To market faster - avoid costly delays by testing throughout the application development process and also to ensure reduced support costs.

  • Global testing coverage – to validate applications across operating systems, platforms, languages, and more.

Functional Testing

Testing of mobile applications for various scenarios based on specifications. This testing also involves the manual verification of the interfaces of the app with the given requirements.

 

Usability Testing Interruption

Testing done to verify the stability of the application when there are interrupts from other applications (call manager etc.,) working on the phone, push services, a call, an SMS.

Conformance

Validation of the compliance of the app with apple Human Interface Guidelines (HIG).

 

Longevity

Longevity testing, also called as endurance testing, evaluates the application ability to handle a constant, moderate work load for a long time. In addition to this Mobile device performance should be verified under various conditions namely:

  • Full Memory

  • Low Memory

  • Low Battery

  • Low Network Signal Strength

  • External Memory Usage

  • Updating the Software
