iBeta Responsive Web Testing
Responsive web design means harnessing a variety of web technologies across multiple platforms and browsers to deliver an optimal viewing experience. The only way to guarantee a job well done is testing. The tricky part is that the combination of devices, browsers and operating systems can explode into a matrix of unbelievable size and complexity, unless the testing approach is guided by the kind of hard-earned experience that can only come from testing thousands of websites and web applications like iBeta has since 1999.
Brute-force testing is rarely as efficient and cost-effective as you need even with automation technology. Emulators aren’t good enough for public release testing because testing is only as sound as an emulator’s ability to emulate a platform. We find bugs all the time in emulators that yield false positives and false negatives. Crowdsource testing can be spotty and skewed without careful management of the size and characteristics of the tester crowd, and the statistical distribution of devices, browsers, and OS versions. Crowds are not automagically as “real world” as you think.
The bottom line is that it takes a combination of art and science to craft the right testing solution for your responsive web technology. iBeta has the automated, manual and semi-automated tools, technologies and techniques employed in any advanced QA laboratory plus the experience to put it all into the just-right approach you need. You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone that knows more about responsive web testing than iBeta.
iBeta/360 Means Web Testing from Every Angle
Anyone with a browser can superficially “test” your website and web applications but not everyone can systematically attack every part of your technology like iBeta can. How many ways can your tech be challenged as a black box, gray box, or white box (e.g. code review)? We have you covered.
Functionality: Using the right combinations of manual and automated testing, we can ensure that the entire stack, from browser to database, is working as designed. Testing includes but is not limited to:
- Integration Testing
- System Testing
- Interface Testing
- Smoke Testing
- Regression Testing
- Acceptance Testing
Compatibility: We can make sure your technology works flawlessly on every browser (including Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera) in every relevant OS (including Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS, Linux), on desktop computers and a huge library of curated mobile devices.
Accessibility: We can evaluate how well your websites and applications works for customers with disabilities. We inspect your software for compliance with W3C’s WCAG 2.0 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and Section 508 of the Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards.
Localization: Your web technology has worldwide reach. We can help make sure it has a local feel with translation, proofreading, and usability services.
Usability: After working with thousands of websites since 1999, we know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t in websites and web applications. We can offer a unique perspective about the qualitative aspects of your technology.
Load testing/performance testing: How will your web technology perform under normal conditions? How will it perform under a deluge of user transactions? And when we take it past the breaking point, what happens? We can help answer these questions and more. Plus, we have a set of focused Performance Scan Packages (QuickScan, BasicScan, and eCommerceScan) you can use to quickly test or validate performance.
Security: Nothing makes a web customer run away faster than a security problem. We can perform security testing from front to back with Web Applications Vulnerability Testing, Network Level Penetration Testing, Network Sniffing, and other tests conducted by our Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) staff. By the way, iBeta is also the only NIST NVLAP-accredited biometrics testing and certification laboratory in the U.S.
Web Testing as Agile as You Are
With thousands of websites under our belts, we are experts in applying the right tools and methods to your project. Do you like test automation? So do we but, more importantly, we know when to use manual testing verses automated testing for best results while maintaining the pace you need. And we have a deep, rich set of manual, semi-automated, and automated tools and techniques built over more than fifteen years to test every aspect of your web technology.
We can participate in your sprint as part of the team. We can complement your test-driven development and behavior-driven development practices. We work as flawlessly with highly Agile DevOps leaders as we do with organizations transitioning to DevOps and Agile methods. We can work with as much or as little documentation and structure as you’ve got. Tell us how you work, and we’ll blow your mind with how great we fit in with the program.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can we work with your bug tracking database? Yes! We use Mantis internally but we work every day with Jira, HP Quality Center, GitHub, Bugzilla, and a dozen other databases besides.
Can we work with your stack? Whether you are LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) or MEAN (MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS, Node.js) or Ruby stack (Ruby, Ruby on Rails, RVM, MySQL, Apache), Django, or Microsoft or some other combination of front-end and back-end technology, we’ve got your testing and quality assurance needs covered.
Can we lead as well as we adapt? Yes! Do you need some help setting up test processes and improving quality practices? Do you need a formal test plan even though you’ve never written or even seen one? Ask us about how we can do more than test.
When and why should you be testing your websites and web applications with iBeta?
- To retain customers, and grow market share with flawless operation.
- To reduce the risks and costs associated with quality and security failures.
- To ensure that major launches go as planned.
- To make sure application and network security is strong.
- To have a quality checkpoint on live updates right on up to the pace of continuous release schemes.
- To ensure compliance with standards and best practices.
- When your in-house QA staff is overwhelmed by workloads.
- When you need specific testing and QA capabilities, or infrastructure that you don’t have in-house.
- When you need independent validation or verification of your technology.
- When you observe poor performance.
- When you have questions about reliability.
- When you are unsure about the scalability of your technology.
- When you need to be sure that website and applications are compatible across browsers and platforms.
- When you are recovering from a disaster, and redeploying your systems and software.
Do we know anything about retail and eCommerce technology? You betcha! We’ve been working with eCommerce technology and platforms since the beginning. Whether your eCommerce technology is based on top platforms like Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, Volusion, Symphony Commerce, Drupal Commerce, 3dcart, or WooCommerce, or you’ve written your own, we can ensure that it works flawlessly, securely, and can take beating during peak shopping seasons.
When It Comes to Web Technology, #QualityIsNotOptional
Your customers come to your website and use your web applications on every device and browser under the sun 24/7/365, and expect your tech to work flawlessly. Period.
Any bug or bump or slowdown sends your customers away to your competition. Customers have choices and they’re not afraid to choose someone else. Staking a claim to world-class quality in your web technology is tantamount to grabbing market leadership and keeping it. Quality is not an optional feature. It’s the first and most important measure by your customers of your technology. iBeta website testing and web application testing is the solution.
