Compatibility testing is a critical QA task – that ensures that the product/software application executes as desired across a broad set of user/client systems and configurations. Proliferation of browsers, operating systems and devices have mandated organizations to ensure that all their software is rendered as intended across these platforms and to prevent expensive bugs/errors entering production/field/market.
In an ideal situation, one is expected to comprehensively test on ‘all’ the possible platform combinations prior to production, however, in reality, there are several constraints like time to market, budgetary and resource availability.
Indium has created a strong value proposition on compatibility testing through jump start kits around defect and failure patterns across a standard set of popular browser/OS and device combinations.
Indium’s Compatibility Test Lab is also equipped with a set of popular devices in the market – that enable our clients to execute these engagements on a pay-on-usage model. Additionally, Indium has created an open-source tool leveraged automated compatibility testing framework called iFACT (Indium Framework for Accelerated Compatibility Testing).
