Silicus Solution

Silicus successfully completed the independent testing of the various healthcare websites. A thorough study of the website was conducted by the team to understand all the features, functionalities, complexity level, data flow, security levels, usability perspective, UI designs, layouts, social media channels, multimedia features like videos, podcast, resources, downloads and various other aspects relevant to the website. Following the website study phase, an in-depth feature list mapping was created. Taking inputs from the prior two steps, the team created a comprehensive test environment for this project in the Silicus Mobile Testing Lab, in order to accomplish testing across following platforms:

  • Operating Systems – Windows, Mac, iOS, Android Gingerbread & Honeycomb versions.
  • Browsers – Latest versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
  • Mobile Devices – Various versions of iPads, iPhones, Samsung Smartphones, and Galaxy Tabs.

A comprehensive Compatibility Test Matrix report was created to display multi-dimensional testing criterion mapped against the features identified for testing. Some of the testing dimensions were logical requirement classification, testing device platform, supporting browsers and many more. This provided excellent support to facilitate easy viewing, tracking, reporting and helped in overall governance of the project. Bug Report Chart sent on daily basis ensured tight co-ordination between the testing team and the client’s development team. Apart from the above testing strategy, end-to-end testing included functional, regression and system testing, ensuring robust quality assurance.
