The practice of Quality Assurance Testing is the means to improve ones product, application or process through identifying bugs, issues or general inadequacies. The issues identified through Quality Assurances Testing are meant to be brought forward to the application developers for resolution, which in effect, results in a more robust product.

Canary Trap begins the Quality Assurance Testing (QAT) process by working with you to gain a deep understanding of the Application Under Under Test (AUT). This entails knowledge transfer either in the form of documentation, collaborative meetings or open investigations.
In the event of incomplete or missing business requirement documentation, Canary Trap will start the QAT process by employing a QA Lead to document the intended purpose of the digital asset. The need to produce a formal Business Requirement Document (BRD) often arises from organizations that have recently been through an acquisition, or, if the organization moved forward in a accelerated agile manner thereby missing standard steps of documentation.
Learning and documenting the business requirements for the digital asset allows our QA Specialists to become 1-to-1 with the application, understanding it’s high-level intended purpose.
Writing test cases are made to guide Canary Trap’s experts through a sequence of steps to validate whether or not the application is working as intended – free of bugs and errors – and fulfilling the functional and business requirements. Enough details are provided so that our experts can understand and execute the test case.
Writing test cases requires the thorough understanding of the Application Under Test (AUT) both from a business and a technical point-of-view. Test Cases will include the Process, Assumptions and the Expected Outcome that the test should yield in a successful state.
Canary Trap will deploy QA Specialists who have the necessary experience aligned to your application’s architecture and testing needs. The purpose of this step is to align QA Specialists who have the credentials and expertise to deliver.
Canary Trap’s QA Specialists have broad industry exposure across multiple verticals and application types. Once resources are aligned based on internal specializations, the QA Lead divides work for theirs QA Specialists with time-oriented milestones that will be communicated to the client.
During testing Canary Trap will enumerate and formalize the findings. Once testing rounds are complete, and executive report will be assembled for your review.
Each test case will state the process followed, medium used, intended result and the tested outcome with a pass/fail denotation.
Once the bugs/errors/inadequacies that were presented have been remediated, the test cases are returned back to our QA Specialists to re-test and confirm findings. Parallel test cases are also run ensuring that the development fixes applied did not produce new errors in related modules. The results are shared with you and repeated rounds of testing are undertaken until satisfaction is met.
Having earned a deep understanding of the AUT, Canary Trap QAT Specialists can be reengaged for later release management regression testing and for quality control of upgrades and enhancements.
