Challenges and opportunities
There is widespread agreement among business stakeholders and their IT counterparts that innovation and strategic investments in emerging technologies are critical to achieving competitive advantage and delivering shareholder value. But standing in the way are organizational barriers and differences in perspective, focus, goals and objectives.
The thrust toward on-time, on-budget delivery and cost reduction have left many IT organizations under-funded and ill-prepared to innovate. Meanwhile, business executives and stakeholders impatient for innovation often fail to appreciate the complexity of and threats to existing IT investments. They want to see measurable returns as fast as possible.

Hunting Software Bugs??
No Test Coverage??
Testing is often an immature discipline in almost every other organization. Envision Testing Solution (ETS) provides an insight to build customers confidence by helping them achieve better software quality, faster time to market and quantifiable return on investment. ETS brings the industry thought leadership in test consulting through professional test specialists, matured testing framework and end-to-end test management activities. While pursuing traditional software development life cycle test team needs to surpass many divergent phases; ETS thus helps test team to adopt industry best practices, techniques, tools, and framework to improve the end-to-end application/product testing cycle.
Approximate 85% of testing projects get execute manually for functional. It is very important to set up right testing process and practices for manual testing activities to meet client satisfaction with high quality of service and delivery. Our highly competent consultants have a vast experience in implementing and executing manual test processes for different domain and products. We will access your type of delivery and requirement in testing quality and assist you to set up industry standard manual testing process covering all the phases of SDLC.

For any product development lifecycle the usage of the tools will be most successful if the automation testing process uses effective test automation process. The key challenge for executives is to achieve the linear relationship between growing test requirements, 100% test coverage and the effort/cost required to cover them. It is always difficult to arrive at optimal technical test approach that addresses optimized cost, better quality and improved time to market. Automated testing is finding favor in testing projects across various technologies and domains; providing various proven strategies and methodologies to optimize the regression testing cost while sustaining the quality that will contribute to a faster rollout/upgrade or to lower maintenance costs for an already deployed application. In this consultancy we show how to design and deploy automation framework for a given product. We show how to analyze the product and capability of the tool against the product feature. Deploy a framework for minimize the maintenance and maximize the functional coverage to reduce regression testing cycle.
This consultancy covers adequate training, pilot project and deployment of a scaled down version of automation framework which can be scaled up easily and reused effectively.
From practitioners view point, “The application is horribly slow!”. “Even after getting a cup of coffee yet the response from application is not visible”. When it comes to application development and maintenance, many companies struggle to maintain adequate resources deeply skilled in application testing. At the same time, IT applications have become increasingly integrated into how companies serve their customers, so that traditionally technical issues can translate into real business problems. With every passing day, organizations are becoming more and more conscious about the performance of their Enterprise Solutions. As the IT industry matures and the technology evolves, so does the awareness about expectations from an Enterprise Application. It is no longer sufficient to just conduct the functional testing alone for an application; instead it became mandatory to validate the desired performance parameters and benchmarking of that application before getting deployed in production.
ETS’ consultation on performance testing will ensure you to build confidence on your software before it is deployed live in production by finding the bottleneck of your application. Performance consultancy will support you to identify & understand the performance needs like Response time check, Throughput, component downloading performance, capacity planning, stress and scalability of your product.

“I want to know what is over the horizon. Don’t talk to me about bits and bytes. If I am going to invest millions with your company, you need to talk to me about the Future…”
- CIO's / Business Leaders
A high degree of software testing project fails as organizations lack to understand the client requirement, having ad-hoc test management, not utilizing right tracking and monitoring process throughout the testing phases. The discipline of test management is about providing the techniques that enable the project team (not just the test manager) to organize their work to meet these constraints. But through effective test management these challenges can be minimized and we can learn from our experience and develop some best practices which can be helpful in effective test management. The issue in turn doesn’t capture flaw, bottleneck or defect of requirements of test coverage, estimation, and process on time. Hence the issue integrates in the later stage of implementing product and impact huge loss in revenue and trust of clients, end customers.
