Introduction to Agile

Agile is a technique of project management in order to develop software that is distinguished by the division of tasks into a short segment of work and frequent reassessment and adaptations of the plan.

Agile Method Defined

The time period required for the completion of a particular project is known as a sprint. There are multiple sprints in agile as per the update and requirement of the client. The developers keep iterating the process of updating as and when required.

Advantages of Agile Methodology

  • Delivery of software is incessant.

  • Each sprint is sent to the client for feedback.

  • Client satisfaction, fulfillment of expectation due to knowing the software better.

  • Changes accepted even at later stages of development of the software.

Disadvantages of Agile Methodology

  • Less documentation.

  • Sometimes the requirement of the client is not very clear which may result in unsatisfied clients.

  • There may be some unpredictable errors which may occur due to the changing demands of a client and hence affect the overall development of the project.

Why Companies Adopt Agile?

Are you wondering why most of your client wants to adopt agile? here are few reasons that can't resist them for an Agile adoption:

Faster release to market

Companies are fed up with 18-month schedules before they get their end product—which is often unsatisfactory. Hence the 2-month schedule and feedback help clients to release finished products on time and match up to their competition.

Build right products

Building the right products not only help in timely delivery but also help provide the exact features to the clients

Better quality

Developers are cost efficient, time efficient and make scope in deadlock situations.

Alignment

When infrastructure is scattered it is being unaligned. Thus aligning a project means to align a connection between effort and business results.

Predictability

Most developers cannot predict when they are going to deliver the end product and how far it can meet the expectations of the client, hence agile serves as a solution. 

Agile Testing

Agile testing is another methodology for testing software.

 

Agile Testing Strategies

Iteration0

In this stage, a business case and boundary conditions are set up and the key requirements are outlined.  The risks that are involved are identified and the cost of the first iteration is precisely estimated.

Constructing Iterations

This is the second phase of agile and consists of most of the checks. With each iteration, developers take the most relevant data and implement them.

Transition Phase

In this phase, the system is positioned into release. This phase includes training of end users, supporting operational people, marketing of the product release, including back-up & restoration, finalization of system and user documentation.

Production

The final stage is the production stage where it is tested in four quadrants after which it is sent to the client.

Agile Testing Values Explained

Individuals and Interactions over Processes and Tools

Flexibility is valued over rigidness in this process but does not move from the fact that agile testing is built upon strong simple and reasonable processes like conducting daily meeting etc.

Working Software on Comprehensive Documentation

Our prime purpose is to test not any complicated credentials, but merely positioning toward the ultimate goal. However, it is always best to have essential credentials in place so that the concepts remain clear for a team member, even in the absence of the developers.

Customer Collaboration over Contract Negotiation

When the client is engaged frequently and closely in the progress of the project, not through complicated development information, but via operational pieces of software, the process is called Customer collaboration over contract negotiation.

Conclusion

Agile testing is one of the latest trends taking over business today and due to cost efficiency, outcome predictability, and timely delivery. Due to its wide acceptability, it has become globally popular.
