Tricentis Mobile: Accelerate high-performing app delivery with true end-to-end mobile testing
Constituent services can be supercharged through government agencies’ IT modernization and digitization efforts. To achieve success on these initiatives, a strategic and calculated approach to testing is needed. In their recent Tech Spotlight on IT Modernization, Federal Computer Week (FCW) spoke with Dr. Grigori Melnik, Chief Strategy Officer at Tricentis, about how the implementation of automated testing can expedite the IT modernization process while ensuring confidence in the outcomes. Melnik outlined 4 best practices to speed up modernization:
These best practices provide a solid foundation for successful automated testing as part of IT modernization initiatives. By starting with these best practices, government agencies can accelerate the modernization process through automated software testing, improve the quality of their systems, and ultimately drive better outcomes for their constituents.
Automated testing can also help facilitate regulatory compliance, such as meeting Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) requirements, as well as hone the economics of modernization. Bottlenecks in highly resource-intensive implementations are easier to discover with automated performance testing, and also provide a foundation for cloud infrastructure consumption modeling to see the potential costs.
Ultimately, automated testing solutions can be key to unlocking future capabilities while also supporting legacy systems. Tricentis’s test automation platforms offer such solutions. They deliver native support for more than 160 applications and technologies plus parallelized execution — from on-premises to the cloud, across mainframes, mobile, custom and packaged applications, documents, APIs, and microservices. That broad reach simplifies and hones testing across government’s sometimes bewildering range of technologies and platforms. With machine learning advancements, Tricentis empowers agencies to visually drive end-to-end test execution.
