Agile Testing Solutions

In order to ensure that new software meets the high demands placed on it, it must be tested at each development stage to ensure that the result is of the necessary quality. Products that have not been adequately tested may be the cause of considerable problems further down the line. Testing is an integral component of agile development processes, requiring special care and attention. Agile testing must be designed in such a way that it always takes into account the objectives of agile software development and provides optimal support in achieving these.

ALTEN is the only ISTQB® Global Partner and as such, our accredited test managers and engineers, both in-house and external, have many years’ experience of working on projects. They work closely with software developers and technicians.

Acceptance Test Driven Development

This is closely related to Test Driven Development and Keyword Based Testing. This modern process utilises what are known as “Feature” Files, which function as communication tools between customers, users, developers and testers. This is to ensure that the requirements are well defined, and it makes it possible to directly link test cases. This technology is particularly helpful in agile projects, enabling the 3 Amigos (requester, developer, tester) to directly work together using a single source (the “single source of truth”).
