I have had very interesting conversations with our testing customers this month. The topic was around how to categorize testing around a Catalog-based model. It is similar to ordering a seven course meal at a restaurant. While the example sounds simple, being prepared to and delivering the meal as per the consumerâ€™s expectation is important.
Based on our experience in testing, we have come up with this model for both Functional and Non-functional testing. For one of our customers, we are implementing a functional testing catalog-based model for testing of their websites. These are sites that can go through simple to complex changes and may need multiple rounds of testing. For another customer, we have a Performance Testing catalog-based model where their brand sites will go through rigorous Load Testing every month to ensure their customers see the high performance in their sites.
We see a lot of possibilities in engaging our customers in this model. Here are a few benefits that customers are able to achieve from this model:
I would love to get your views on this model and what challenges you see in these kinds of models. Please feel free to share your comments.
