You’ve tested the latest release of your application, and it works just fine. From a functional perspective, it does everything it’s supposed to.

But what if the user experience has changed in a way that wasn’t picked up in functional testing?

To Err Is Human - the Security and Privacy Benefits of Robotic Process Automation

People make mistakes. Human behavior so often falls short of ‘expected standards’, it begs the question why we hold ourselves to such standards at all. Too often, we build systems and processes on the implicit assumption that the people using them will be rational, infallible, and consistent. Of course, the truth is that most of us are anything but.

Our general fallibility is obviously closely tied to AI and test automation. Automated testing is immune to the unintentional biases and lapses in concentration that affect human testers.

Better User Experience Testing

The purpose of software testing has been steadily shifting from ‘does it work?’ to ‘does it deliver the required business outcomes?’, with an increasing focus on end-user requirements. It’s no longer enough to rely on metrics such as x% of tests passed. Now we have to understand the impact on the people using the product and the wider implications for the organization. There is a need to bridge that gap between meeting testing objectives and actually meeting customer expectations.

Performance testing just got a lot easier.

While delivering quality at scale is essential, simply setting up a performance test can be a challenging and time-consuming exercise, and then you need to analyze it. So, despite its importance, performance testing is not commonly used during development cycles.

“Effortless Performance Testing” in Eggplant Performance 9.0 changes all that, with a simple-to-use load testing capability that re-uses your existing Eggplant AI assets. So you can now run performance load tests on your system with no technical knowledge and no coding.

Testing is critical for organizations like NASA, the US Army, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, MBDA, the UK’s Ministry of Defense and the Metropolitan and Scottish Police, where lives are on the line. As we've worked with customers like these over many years, we've noticed how much more testing is than just making sure the system works — it’s about ensuring we test for mission success and continuously optimize mission outcomes. Whether you're designing systems for command and control (C2); to provide support for complex police operations, such as hostage negotiations; or for shooting down an enemy missile, you should plan your testing and monitoring strategy to continuously test against the desired mission outcomes.

Quality assurance (QA) used to be a compliance activity. You were releasing a product and needed to test it and stamp it “approved.” QA was about testing that the code worked. You might manually test the code. You might have even tried some automation — coding a set of test scripts that would try to capture regressions or errors that you had eradicated in the past, but which somehow crept back in. All in all, you were reasonably satisfied that you achieved a level of test coverage that met your goals. Then, you put your code into production and crossed your fingers that nothing went wrong. And if it did, you tried to fix it as quickly as humanly possible.
