User Journey, A Way to Prioritize Your Test Strategy

In the current age of delivering highly complex digital applications, in a competitive market for high-expectation end users, maintaining quality seems like a daunting task. Furthermore, agile cycles are shrinking to meet competitive deadlines. A typical product owner needs to balance 3 sprint investments (frankly, on a daily basis): innovation, tech debt and bugs, and testing. They all need to be optimized. In the case of testing that means considering: efficient parallel executions, ongoing availability

Performance Testing in the Age of Agile and Digital Transformation

How to Handle Pop-ups and Out-of-Window-Artifacts When Web Testing

Quality Testing: Challenges Insurance Companies Face in the Battle to Become Digital

Testing Functionality, Responsiveness and Rendering on Geico’s Responsive Website

In addition, HTML5 functionality may assume access to local sensors to drive a richer and streamlined experience, for example, automatic location detection, further complicating the responsive web test strategy. The testing matrix becomes sizable, while the time-to-test shrinks from increasing competitive pressure and the transition to agile. In this article I'll
