What is product testing?

Product testing is an essential part of creating any digital product, feature or service. Early testing ensures strength and feasibility before releasing the product into the wild. Ideally, this testing is completed before a product is launched, but it can be broken into iterative launch ‘stages’, iterations or testing ‘sprints’, depending on what’s important for the customer or user to have at hand.

For an iterative product testing phase, the engineering and management team need to have a solid idea around the SDLC (Software Development Lifecycle) plan, which allows for testing, development and rerelease. This plan also requires a custom software product which can be split into TCPs (Test Case Prioritizations), organizing the testing field by the amount of early access customers get to the product. 

The reason for including a TCP is so that certain key features can be tested before the desirable or non-essential features are included in the release, limiting the number of features developers have to fix or respond to in the initial test phase. A TCP test should also monitor the functionality and usability and be limited to certain test areas involved (e.g. a geographical region, as opposed to the entire United States).

How and where would you use product testing?

Any agency or organization that relies on a customer-facing product, such as Medicare or health services, that requires user input and custom functionality.

Collaboration and transparency

Collaboration and transparency are crucial aspects of any cloud testing application.

Continuous integration and deployment testing

The process allows for gradual and scheduled updates to be integrated and tested whilst in a live application, without the need for downtime.

Cross-platform and cross-device testing

Cross-platform and cross-device testing describe an important part of quality assurance for product testing.

Data security and compliance

Data security describes the process of protecting digital information from any unauthorized access, corruption or theft.

Scalability and elasticity

Scalability and elasticity describe two processes which are continually tested in project management and which make for project longevity.

Test automation

Test automation is the process of using various automation tools that maintain the test data, execute tests and analyze test results.
