OUR EXPERTISE

Nihilent Holistic Testing stretches conventional testing boundaries and adds significant value to the project and businesses through our best in class testing services.

Our approach is in sync with the current market landscape for testing. For instance, the software testing function has undergone massive changes since the advent of ‘Agile and DevOps’ practices. To achieve quick releases with uncompromising quality, extensive ‘Test Automation’ was the only way forward. Hence, the QA/Testing function has become more technical than functional. While the functional aspect is still essential, shorter releases and clear definitions of requirements have elevated testing expectations. Now the demand is more and frequent test execution in a short timeframe. Nihilent has adopted this change by leveraging its extensive experience in test automation to consolidate its position as a premium Consulting vendor in the ‘Software Testing’ space.

Organizations worldwide are accelerating their digital push to ensure that they meet the ever-growing digital demands of their customers by providing them an exceptional experience. Customer experience, flawless quality, and faster time to market are the three key pillars for any digital transformation initiative.

Understanding the ever-changing digital landscape and the dynamic needs of its client organizations, Nihilent has re-modelled its delivery methodology to deliver new applications and solutions at a much faster rate with uncompromising quality. Applying the latest DevTestSecOps methods and our core capabilities in digital testing, our fully integrated engineering teams perform Continuous Testing at scale and operate with the speed, agility, and flexibility required for our client’s digital business initiatives.

Continuous Testing makes for an accelerated software development process by employing testing strategies, techniques, and tools at every stage of the software lifecycle. It embraces both the Shift Left / Shift Right’ approaches.

Continuous Testing expects testing to be embedded within each phase of the development process and not just executed at the end. Nihilent’s DevOps approach is wholly integrated with the Continuous Testing component. It uses modern-day tools and techniques to leverage test automation capabilities extensively so that the test execution continues on every commit/ each day/ week. Faster feedback with actionable insights is the key to the successful implementation of Continuous Testing.

Nihilent has been advocating this approach to all possible customers as it provides immediate tangible benefits to the projects. Nihilent has a matured TCoE with subject-matter experts who are advising on different solutions aspects of this approach.

Cloud has acquired a meaningful role in the digital era because it gives enterprises a unique ability to ramp up almost any configuration without any upfront costs. And hence, it has reduced time-to-market, reduced overall workforce costs, and given organizations flexibility to focus on the application instead of infrastructure.

Migrating the infrastructure to the cloud leads to significant cost savings and liberates you from maintaining recurring expenditure on your CAPEX. Though these benefits are crucial, it also brings a set of risks around ‘Performance and Security. Hence, it becomes critical to employ a cloud-specific testing strategy that can cater to non-functional aspects while using cloud platforms to host software applications/products.

Nihilent has defined a broad framework around cloud-based testing with a primary focus on:.

  • Performance (Load and Volume)

  • Availability Testing

  • Compatibility Testing

  • Security

  • Disaster Recovery

  • Data migration testing

  • API/ Web-services testing

  • Compliance Testing (like GDPR)

  • Service Virtualization

Nihilent is accelerating the pace of solution development using service virtualizations. Our expert team crafts compelling and innovative service virtualization that allows you to conduct test executions of applications and gives you an evolutionary roadmap. Nihilent’s service virtualization removes potential bottlenecks and expedites test execution at the beginning of the solution development itself, leading to appropriate course corrections.

Traditionally, there used to be a big-time gap between testing and development activities. Most of the time testing teams had to wait for applications to be fully coded and deployed before starting functional or performance testing. Ideally, different components of a system or application are built at various timeframes and then all are integrated as a single product ready for testing. This process is linear and extremely slow.

With the advent of service virtualization, DevOps teams by using virtual services instead of real integration services, enable the testing teams to conduct repeated and thorough testing even when many software components are not available.

When running agile at scale to deliver complex enterprise-grade programs involving multiple systems from disparate technology stack like Mainframes to Mobility, it becomes essential that each ‘Agile/DevOps’ team should make use of service virtualization to remove the need for other integrated systems, thus reducing significant time-to-market and reduced costs due to earlier defect identification.

Either it’s BI or EDW or Data Mart or Big Data, the data testing involves creating, executing, and maintaining tests that verify and validates the data quality across all stages of data travel. The data integrity may be compromised when data is created, integrated, moved, or transformed. Nihilent’s experienced consultants create a custom test strategy that fits into specific business scenarios and projects, preventing data integrity issues by exposing the problem early and in an automated manner.

In the data space, the potential cause of the error may lead to a business loss and the actual problem may lie anywhere in the entire IT/business landscape. Such tedious tasks often result in many hours of manual effort. We craft a test strategy that prevents potential delays in testing and enabling the project to perform early testing at various stages.

Nihilent’s in-house testing capabilities ensure quality in big data platforms, and businesses can rest assured that the insights presented to them from the big data layers are accurate and can be trusted to make critical business decisions.

As software development shifts towards ‘Agile and DevOps’ delivery models, it has become necessary for enterprises to use ‘Intelligent Test Automation’. Furthermore, continuous delivery to production systems is not possible without proper test automation. Nihilent is helping enterprises to implement and adopt intelligent test automation from the beginning of the project work and aligns the testing practices with the overall solution delivery method.
With 20+ years of experience in test automation and related technologies, Nihilent provides test automation services to global customers and adds value to businesses.

Test automation for web technologies covers the front-end and captures the feature through the entire architectural layer, which involves services and databases. In addition, frequent changes in user demands have led to continuous releases with feature addition or changes, giving rise to continuous testing, especially regression testing.

As organizations mature in the test automation area, they also start employing the techniques to test the new feature code commits directly through test automation instead of utilizing test automation at the regression testing layer. Nihilent has successfully delivered such an approach in many projects and programs globally.

Nihilent Performance engineering is an evolved, comprehensive, ‘Shift-left’ version of ‘Performance Testing’ where performance optimization continuously takes place throughout the release lifecycle. Nihilent Performance Center of Excellence (PCoE) provides E2E performance solutions enabling customers to launch applications with high responsiveness, availability, and scalability.

In traditional performance testing methodology, testing was carried out at the end after functional testing and SIT were done. That approach created a lot of ambiguity in release planning and incurred higher costs as the defects were found later in the cycle, leading to the re-execution of some cycles of testing. Hence, with the advent of Agile, DevOps, and Continuous Testing, performance engineering also gained momentum. Performance engineering is not just limited to QA, but it involves architects, developers, and QA collectively.

Decoupling different application components during the design stage, running profilers during the implementation stage, and conducting small user-story level performance tests in the CI pipeline, are some examples of performance engineering.

Nihilent has built a comprehensive framework for integrating performance engineering practices in the Agile/DevOps structure and has since consulted and implemented it for many of its client organizations, leading to significant gains in time-to-market, costs, and overall productivity.
