X Topic Abstract

Apart from making voice calls, a smartphone offers an enormous potential for interactions between businesses and their customers as well. It helps you perform various tasks including surfing web, capturing photos, email, playing games and using enterprise apps. Mobile devices are uniquely constrained in several aspects such as multi-tasking support, available network bandwidth, screen real estate etc.

Mobile applications need to operate successfully (or degrade gracefully) within a wide spectrum of operating conditions, such as a range of supported screen resolutions and form factors, network bandwidth situations and network types (2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi) etc.

Mobile applications sometimes need to interact with the device’s sensors such as GPS, accelerometer, the ambient light sensor, camera etc.

Non-functional tests look deeper into the system to make sure both the hardware and software can handle heavy loads, can withstand hacking attempts, or even make sure all of the user documentation is thorough and useful to the end user. It also takes into consideration the expectations of the end user. During non-functional testing, the attributes verified are not specific to any one function, but rather the quality of the system as a whole. It helps to answer questions such as: “How fast does it respond?”, “How many people can login at once?”, “How quickly can a new user learn the application?”, or “Is it suitable from the perspective of the typical end user?” Users expect mobile apps to launch not just quickly, but faster than mobile versions of websites. The median time users expect to wait for an app to load is just two seconds, and abandonment increases with increased loading times.

X Topic Abstract

Enterprise Applications are designed to run complex applications for bigger Business Enterprises. Most of the current enterprises exist globally. It makes mandate for any Enterprise Business Applications to deliver performance with speed, consistency and scalability. Most of the bigger enterprises eventually can grow bigger either by organic growth or merger/acquisitions. It is extremely important for enterprise applications to scale in the similar passion without much change in the hardware requirements. Scalability is one of the most important aspects concerned with the quality of software. It indicates how well a software system or component meets its requirements with respect to speed, stability and scalability within controlled environment. Usually Enterprise Application run in highly loaded environment with respect to volume of data processing and number of concurrent users. Breakdown of system with high load will bring high loss to business.

This session covers following aspects of performance and scalability of Enterprise Applications.

- Performance and load testing is costly business. How to define load test requirements
- Best approach to achieve scalability and conduct load/stress test
- Simulation of customer load environment
- Different Key Performance Indicators to be analyzed
- Different tools to be used for testing and analysis
- Best approach to define hardware configuration to achieve highest scalability

Track 1 : Round Table Discussion

X Topic Abstract

Today, CI and DevOps environments, especially on Open Source projects for multiple frameworks, platforms, languages and kernels are largely focused on build verification and functional verification. Performance and related aspects are generally considered not crucial for this stage of testing and evaluation. However, specifically in the case of Open Source technologies, leaving performance issues for later in the cycle means a longer cycle in getting the changes reviewed, agreed on and upstreamed to make it part of a release. The Systems Performance team I lead developed an innovative way to plug into DevOps, CI and CT environments to help identify, evaluate, improve and upstream performance related issues and changes early in the cycle to ensure quick turnaround of such issues. The session will deal with the mechanism to be adopted by any organization or team that is interested in early performance evaluation and fixes, with a specific focus on Open Source technologies of any type.

X Topic Abstract

Do you know how to identify potential security weaknesses in your product?

Often, weaknesses are discovered very late in the software. But to circumvent this issue we can

- Find security weaknesses early, you need to analyze your architecture in the design phase, and Threat Modeling is a method that can help you do this.

- Perform Security Code Scans help to identify the potential security vulnerabilities during early stages.

The Psychology of Security
Computer and Information Security
Theory of Security

Why Secure Software Development is important?

Let's read some of the recent cyber-attacks that had hit the headlines in the recent past.

- 6.46 million LinkedIn passwords leaked online.
- Facebook Inc. has inadvertently exposed 6 million users’ personal data (Phone numbers and email address) to unauthorized viewers.
- Major security breach at a payment services provider that manages ATM network of a private sector banks in India. 3.25 million Debit cards users card data have been stolen.

We don’t want our organization to be in the news for security breaches within our software.
Hence it is a mandate that all of these security requirements comes under our Corporate Requirements and


X Topic Abstract

DDE is a python-based tool that helps extend typical Excel functionalities, like its formulae and macros, to unimaginable levels, and of course from the realms of Python programming. On top of that, the tool allows to create massive amounts of data, that follows a specified template, characterized by a set of rules. This will greatly enhance the effectiveness of performance testing.

At the heart of the program is the concept of a data template, that, simply put, is a textual representation of an excel sheet. The tool comes with a built-in pre-processor, that could optionally generate a template from an existing excel sheet. It could now be manually extended with custom rules, and in turn used to create huge amounts of customized data, to easily fill up the web page during a performance test run. Of course, a template could also be hand-written from the scratch, allowing much more flexibility.

The rules could vary in complexity and can handle simple data validation (as seen in Excel) rules, to very complicated user-defined functions (as defined from Python). It also supports the cross-references between excel cells, INDIRECT references (as supported in Excel), and has built-in concatenation methods, both of which are available out-of-the-box.

X Topic Abstract

Most important to any organisation is 'data'. The data need to be protected when using any kind of application or product. If the application or product having security related problems then the organisation’s data will be compromised and causes financial/reputation loss. So security testing is more important along with the functionality testing.

In this talk the topics would be about security testing techniques, tools (fuzz testing tools, memory corruption detectors, etc.,), demo(s) for open source projects.

X Topic Abstract

With Agile & DevOps becoming more & more predominant, early performance analysis has marked its presence as a norm for business critical & high traffic applications. Agile developments have created a spark on the importance of Performance modelling & prediction analysis to arrive at better direction about system performance during early life cycle phases which was not well practiced or appreciated earlier.

Though Performance Modelling & Prediction analysis is not a brand new topic, the percentage of its usage by Performance Engineers was very least and now that its importance is being realized due to agile practices. This paper brings in various Analytical / Statistical Regression / Simulation modelling techniques, its usage scenarios and benefits of modelling solutions through real project case study illustrations.

Performance professionals are usually a bit scared about performance modelling thinking it is too complex due to the fear of mathematics. And a few think, Performance modelling is a replacement for Performance Testing. Bringing-in enough insights on analytical & statistical modelling techniques, this paper aims to uncover the myths about performance modelling through insightful examples in a practical way.

X Topic Abstract

The term “usability” in software represents an approach that puts the user, rather than the system, at the center of the process. It is the measure of how easy it is to use a product to perform prescribed task.

Usability in medical device is critical area and a very important aspect. As more and more decisions made by the medical practitioners today as based on the information provided by the medical devices which are majorly software UI, controls, indication, it puts a lot of onus on the manufacturer to have a very user friendly, easily interpretable, closer to clinical user interfaces. Another fact that adds to this is, the impact of poor usability could lead a hazardous situation leading to serious injury or death of the patient. There are regulations around usability in medical devices.

Recent FDA reports show that more than 1/3 of medical device incident reports involve use error, and more than 1/2 the recalls due to design problems can be traced to poor design of the user interface. The most visible aspect of this is usability testing, where manufacturer need to apply the standards and guidelines available for Usability to ensure the device is safe and effective.

This topic covers various requirements of Usability and how is it interleaved with the Software development process in an agile development environment. Also to share the generic framework for conducting usability tests for Medical devices right from requirements, methodologies to outputs, with example. Also to emphasis that Usability is not just another Non-functional requirement but it has its own life cycle within product creation process.

X Topic Abstract

On a world population of about 7.1 billion people, around 4 % people have severe visual impairment and 0.5 % people in the world cannot see. That would mean approximately 39 million people in the world are visually challenged!

These might look like just figures but cannot be ignored in this interconnected world, a world where access to right information is potentially a key normal life, visual impairments may be roadblocks for this.

Accessibility can be viewed as the "Ability to Access", often facilities or amenities to people with impaired mobility, through the provision of facilities like wheelchair ramps, Braille signage, elevators, audio signals at pedestrian crossings, walkway contours and reading accessibility.

In software terms, Accessibility refers to the possibility for everyone, including people with disabilities, to access and use technology and information products.

SAP ensures the accessibility of the products via the "Product Standard Accessibility“. SAP Product Standard Accessibility is based on external and globally acknowledged accessibility guidelines.

SAP's Accessibility standard focuses on mobility impairments and sensory disabilities.
1. Mobility impairments  keyboard support
2. Sensory disabilities
- blind users  screen reader support
- users with any other visual impairments  requirements about colour/contrast, text resizing, Screen Magnifier support
- users with hearing impairments  requirements about audio feedback
- users who are getting old  requirements for example about text resizing, tool tips for icons, conveying information not only by colour

Tools and Procedures:

Accessibility is planned early in development cycles during screen designs and mock-up creation.
Test Cycles are planned and are closely aligned with the development sprints and planned for the entire system during Integration testing, when screens are developed and stable in terms of changes due to bug fixes or random changes in requirements.
Common Licenced screen reader application is used with recent version of OS and browser to report compliance of application with screen reader.
Colour contrast analyser is used to ensure that usage of contrast on screen is right for the users to distinguish the foreground from the background.

Test Reports are generated to convey inclusion of most of international accessibility acts and regulations

- Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0), Level A and AA
- US Section508, 1194.21 and 1194.22
- BITV 2.0 - German Accessible Information Technology Regulation), Priority 1

With this, we try to ensure not only availability of information for all, we also ensure inclusion and participation of all


X Topic Abstract

One of the latest disruptor in the entire IT landscape is the “Digital Technology”. Digital Transformation always aims at putting customer value and end user experience at the heart of the digital initiatives. This has resulted in customer transactions being multi-channel, multi-device and multi-platform driven. QA now is faced with the challenge of validating the usability aspects of an application that has thus been developed – ensuring uniformity and easiness to use across multiple channels & devices (such as web, smartphones, tablets etc). This presentation will cover the aspects that need to be covered, standards used and testing methodology in place for testing the usability of responsive applications. The use of automation, extent of automation, strategy used for automation are other areas of interest in that we will touch upon. (such as web, smartphones, tablets etc) Our experiences and success stories of this model will be discussed too.

X Topic Abstract

Actor based systems are built on the four design principles: responsive, resilient, elastic and message driven. Large distributed systems can be built up of thousands of lightweight actors running on a cluster of machines. The actors communicate through asynchronous messages rather than through method invocations. The two key challenges in building a reliable actor-based system is to ensure to apply the principles of test-driven development (unit testing) in an asynchronous message-driven paradigm, and actually testing the system on a multi-node cluster. This session will explain how to achieve each of these two objectives with Akka actors. Akka is a actor based system running on Java Virtual Machines, and has similarities with the Erlang programming. Akka has been used in building large distributed systems in recent times, including some of the Big Data platforms. In this session we would explain through demos, the usage of akka-testkit and Test Conductor for building reliable actor-based systems.

X Topic Abstract

People have emerged a long way in which they interact with the applications and seek information in day to day life. The digital world is constantly finding new ways in which it can penetrate the human lives and affect the day to day work. We see a disruptive shift be it Cloud Platforms, IoT, M-commerce etc. To compliment these new technology and development trends, the approach to Usability Testing is also emerging. Usability of an application is not just limited to mere perceived usability rather it is becoming more immersive and is closely followed with the development methods and processes. In this paper we will explore the areas in context with the Cloud Platform and IoT for Usability testing, the challenges involved in conducting the usability testing and also meeting expectations of the end users. We will explore how we can leverage the established approach for delivering the better experience.

X Topic Abstract

We all know that it is not easy being a software tester when it comes to the aspect of the usability testing of any application or a product. It is getting really harder every day to achieve usability testing perfectly and improvise the application. Basically, usability testing is a way of discovering whether the people (application users) can read, understand and navigate seamlessly while using an application. The drastic increase in the availability of the technologies used for recording makes it very easier to include usability testing in the software development process of any product. Since, it is always risky to just rely on the testers in the team to perform the usability test of the application and it is not guaranteed that they always can act as actual users of the application. With this it is difficult to understand the way the application to be developed in a more usability context. According to Jacob Neilson - an usability expert - testing five users could uncover about 85% of your site's usability problems. In your effort to minimize usability testing costs, you should try not to use co-workers, or anyone else who has a hand in creating the site, as test subjects. Even using other Web designers could be a big mistake. Their prior experience with the site, the technology and a bias towards pleasing you could easily spoil the test results.

The hallway testing process will come into picture to solve this issue. Hallway testing is a usability test set-up in a high foot traffic area, utilizing bystanders to test your product. Your participants will be people who happen to be walking down the hall and are able to afford 5-10 minutes of their day. In this, the application will be tested for the usability context by the people who are not at all aware of what the application is all about. They are as good as a new person in the team. By this approach, the application can be tested for the usability with a way actual users using the application.

X Topic Abstract

In software development activity, testing has always been a developmental subject. In this era of emerging vogue in the IT business, the importance to sophisticatedly understand, manage and adopt the QA activities is growing. With the inception of Agile and DevOps, a huge change is scrutinized in software development cycles attempted by the organizations. Diversified methods are in place to enforce software quality assurance. Software development cycles have become short and quick that, test engineers face new challenges everyday as they endeavour to keep the pace.

This is where test automation has gained its importance. It helps in improving the test coverage without affecting the delivery date of the project. The paper talks about a comprehensive test automation tool which automates all the QA activities from static testing to non functional testing.

In this quick world, the teams surpassingly face bi-weekly sprint releases, testing is often neglected or kept on sidelines, due to less time or cost constrains. It has been always a challenge for the testing team to continuously preserve and enhance the quality and efficiency of software products. Software test automations buckets many benefits such as optimization of speed, frequency of execution, cost effectiveness, test coverage, quality, accuracy and adaptability. Automated software testing can increase the depth and scope of tests to help improve software quality. Once created, automated tests can run over and over again at no additional cost and they are faster than manual tests. Automated software testing can reduce the time to run repetitive tests from days to hours. Automated tests perform the same steps precisely every time they are executed. It can simulate tens, hundreds or thousands of virtual users interacting with a network, software and web applications.

NeTAF is primarily an end to end quality control framework. It greases the wheels for almost all kinds of desired testing of a software product in an automated environment. The test teams will no longer require huge head count to perform end-to-end testing of a software product starting from static analysis to load\performance testing of the final end product. NeTAF is a comprehensive framework, capable of housing all testing activities like automated functional testing, load testing, code coverage analysis and static analysis, initiated and controlled by automated scripts. It integrates industry available best tools into the automation framework

Agile as the term indicates is a dynamic way of working in teams. Testing becomes an essential component in each and every phase of the developmental process, in this fashion of work where quality being “baked in” to a product at every stage of its development through constant feedback from everyone holding a vision of the final product. In simpler words, most of the time in agile testing a quality feedback is expected on the daily development activities. Here, management expects the testing team to run quality checks on a daily/weekly builds which will prove to be a burden on QA teams. QA teams often have to climb the Everest in a short time and compromises on the quality would be a by-product. NeTAF plays a key role in such stage plays, where end-to-end testing can be scheduled and automated.
