One of the multidisciplinary tasks that are cognitively challenging yet essential for any software development firm is exploratory testing. ET mainly revolves around learning and investigating the new software and its functionalities. During the process of ET, it facilitates the software tester to decide what has to be tested and how the time needs to be managed while testing. Dissimilar to other software testing methodologies, in ET, the test cases are not created in advance, but the testers carry out the software application checking on the fly. ET is process of designing test cases and executing them simultaneously.

The ever-growing advancements in technology have also enhanced the impact of exploratory testing too. By hiring experienced and professional software testers for accomplishing ET will eventually turn out to be highly beneficial, as this enables businesses to hire the best talent pool of resources that can carry out the testing of their software thoroughly tested. WTS is one of the primary exploratory testing service providers that are offering top-quality software testing services to globally reputed clients. The WTS testing processes are continually updated with the contemporary developments in the domain and industry and are regularly being used by our professionals in the form of templates, checklists, and guidelines. Hence, outsourcing of exploratory testing services to WTS can provide businesses with abundant benefits and help them create efficient, bug-free software.

Services WTS Offers

We at Wethink Solutions offer our clients with a broad range of services that are fully integrated into an efficient SLA-driven model. Also known as the session-based test management cycle, the ET process performed here is subjected through a series of rationalized steps. The following are key steps of WTS process –

1. Classification of Bugs Classification

This step involves carrying out an analysis of the common errors in software, which are identified based on past projects. The following are a few key bug classification steps that are followed by the WTS team –

✓ Carry out the categorization of the general types of bugs, which were analyzed and identified in the former projects.
✓ Identification of the risks and developing apt methods to test the application.
✓ Carrying out the analysis of the main causes of these common errors.

2. Creation of Test Charter

This is one of the prominent steps in the ET process, which we understand very well. In this step, we determine what exactly is to be tested, how the test is to be done, and what all aspects are to be looked into to perform the tests. The generation of test ideas marks the beginning of ET, and the software test charter that is created helps us to determine how the end-user will be utilizing the software application.

3. Testing of the Time Box

In such testing, a team or a pair of software testers work together to test the application software for a specific period of time without any interruption. The duration of this time period can either be increased or reduced based on the needs and requirements of the client. Such a testing session enables the tester to carry out the analysis of the software system’s response and achieve the desired outcome.

4. Review of the Results

Upon completion of the tests, it is also equally important to review the results obtained through the tests. The software application developed is evaluated for bugs and defects by the expert team at Wethink Solutions. The primary goal of this step is to learn more about the application and identify the areas that need improvements.

5. Debriefing

Upon the completion of all important and major software tests, all the results are compiled in an organized manner by the well-trained team of software testers. All these results are compared with the charted to understand if any further testing is needed to ascertain the functioning of the app.

Exploratory versus Ad-hoc Testing

Exploratory testing has got enormous benefits, and it serves as an extra layer of testing apart from the scripted testing process and offers the advantage of developing a highly functional software product. There has been confusion between Ad-hoc and ET for a long time now, as these methodologies have close similarities, and nonetheless, they are dissimilar. Listed here are a few key differences between these two methods of testing –

✓ Exploratory Testing.
✓ Ad-hoc testing.
✓ Starts with the exploration of the application while learning.
✓ Starts with the analysis of the application and then testing the product.
✓ Documentation is of paramount importance and a basic requirement to maintain the quality of testing.
✓ However, documentation is not the basic requirement for this type of testing.
✓ This is more predominantly about learning the application.
✓ This is significantly about perfecting the application through testing.
✓ Assists to develop the application.
✓ Helps to find inventive ideas from the research we carry out.
✓ The primary focus is restricted to data entry areas with interface checking.
✓ This testing primarily focuses on the application and repeatedly tests it.
✓ Basically Works on a positive testing niche.
✓ Generally, works on negative testing niche.
✓ Offers us with determined results with algorithms that can be used to improve the application better.
✓ The result is dependent on the specific requirement and identifies problems, if any, which can be tested formally.
