Test Management Complexities

On the surface the concepts of test management are simple to grasp. One test case, run against one product, by one tester and one result recorded. Such a simple concept. Except that it’s not that simple.

When you multiply up the permutations to include different versions of testcases, different versions of the product under and even different configurations the management of these artifacts soon becomes increasingly complex.

When Your Job is NOT TO TEST

The following is based on a true story

Imagine you are hired to work as a software tester (or test lead) for a company that develops a web-based product .

When you get to the place you notice that these guys are really sharp and work with the latest technology and methodologies available; but very quickly you also notice a very strange behavior in the company: they run only a small number of tests before rolling new features out into production!

Performance testing the cloud

Intechnica are holding an event entitled "How fast is the cloud?" at the Porsche Experience Centre on 28th July. The purpose of the event is to present the findings of our project to performance test the cloud, and to provide a forum for discussion amongst peers, independent consultant and providers. We are testing the same application installed on 4 different environments: Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure, VMWare (private cloud), and a traditional physical server.

Roles or Tasks?

Here at work the organisation is attempting to change from a Role based project resourcing system to a Task based project resourcing system.

In the traditional Role based system a bid is put together with an estimate of the roles required and the number or resources required to complete the project. e.g.
1 of Test Manager (if the project is big enough)
X of Test Leads
X of Functional Testers
X of Performance Testers
X Security/Penetration Testers
etc.

Build a team to do a job. Then assign tasks to each team member appropriately to get the job done.
