Challenges

In the range of services that our client provides, the client was facing some challenges in ensuring the integration quality of the systems that they operate and provide for their customers. We were asked to perform Integration testing for ensuring the proper coordination between functions amongst several systems that our client utilizes, as well as testing whether the developed functionalities were properly integrating with the existing features. We utilized Integration Testing as a level of software testing where we combined and tested the individual units as a group to check their integration status. The reasoning behind conducing Integration Testing is to expose any potential fault between the interaction of the integrated units, this is done to avoid any errors that can occur when the integration of components or units is conducted.

The detected challenges were in relation to various factors such as platforms, database, or environment, these made the management of the Integration testing process complex, the integration of a new system requires a lot of testing effort and changes. Taking into consideration that the build development is condoned by multiple developers with different platforms, merging the components together required a special attention from CUNITECH’s Integration Testing professionals to ensure the seamless integration of the components of the system.

The Process

The client was searching for an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited laboratory that would be able to consistently deliver accurate and valid results for software testing services. CUNITECH was selected by our client based on the expertise that we have provided to our previous customers about the services that we provide regarding software testing.

The first step that we conducted was the process of understanding the architecture of the system that was going to be tested, next we proceeded to identify the modules and understand what the functionality of each module is to have a more detailed view of the components that we were working with. We then wanted to understand how the data transfer process between modules is performed, and through understanding the entry and exit point of the system we were able to comprehend how data is inputted and received in the system. We then proceeded to segregate the system to make it suitable for the testing requirements, and then the team identified and developed the test conditions that would help us with the test cases, and then we took one condition at a time and wrote down the test cases that would enable us to conduct the successful integration testing service, and ensure that the system was correctly processing the requests from the integrated components.
