Testing Low-Code Platforms

When developing Low-Code applications, testing is done differently, certain risks that arise when developing more traditional software will be less applicable in the Low-Code context. On the contrary, developing Low-Code applications brings new risks. Consequently, testing in Low-Code requires a different approach. In testing Low-Code, we see that testing the correct implementation of Business Rules as well as End-to-End testing is more common. Moreover, the testing of Data Quality, accents on non-functionals such as performance, security and privacy affect the way in which Low-Code software is tested. Find out more about Squerists’ approach to testing Low-Code applications here.

In a heavily digitalising world, there is a growing number of Low-Code platforms entering the market on a frequent basis. Squerist has extensive experience in testing the most widely used Low-Code platforms, check them out here:

Our Approach to Testing Low-Code Platforms

Squerist can help and guide you through the entire Testing Process of your Low-Code Platform(s). Firstly, we conduct a Product Risk Analysis (PRA) in order to determine and prioritise the most important risks that need to be covered. After completion of the PRA, Squerist is able to determine what the Test Strategy should be for the specific implementation. Naturally, this strategy will consist of a broad testing approach and a description of resources and expertise needed in order to implement the Testing Strategy. Furthermore, Squerist is able to provide expertise in the areas of Manual Testing.

Testing Low-Code Platforms

Squerist can professionally plan, prepare, and execute Low-Code testing.

We do this in close collaboration with your teams, users, and employees. By allowing Squerist to take the Lead Testing Role, you can expect the testing to be done professionally. Our professionalism lies in our knowledge and experience with testing, Low-Code systems and the specific risks of the most commonly used platforms.

Facilitating User Acceptance Tests (UAT)

User Acceptance Testing is common in Low-Code testing.

In order to ensure that users test the system professionally UAT sessions (or Test Mobs) can be facilitated by Squerist. Squerist will organise, instruct, and assist users during these sessions in order to enhance productivity, to get users acquainted with new features of a system but, above all, to show users that testing is fun!

Educating Users on Low-Code testing

Squerist believes that users of Low-Code systems should be involved in testing as much as possible.

Users have a great deal of knowledge of the application. Moreover, they see applications from a unique point of view. Users can easily point out whether or not something works for them in practice. Furthermore, they are the ones that will eventually have to work with the system, so we might as well involve them as much as we can! Basic knowledge is required for users in order to participate in testing. The course Low-Code Testing for Users teaches users the fundamentals of testing Low-Code.

 

Squerist can provide a general course. Speaking from experience, Squerist sees that this course is more successful when tailored to the specific needs of the organisation and the project. Together with you, Squerists will determine how the course should be conducted. Consequently, this means that we will come to an agreement regarding the testing methods, documentation practises and the administration of issues.

 

The Low-Code Testing for Users usually consists of 1 – 2 days depending on your needs.

Product Risk Analysis (PRA)

To ensure that the testing of your Low-Code system is done as efficiently and effectively as possible,

Squerist starts off by conducting a Product Risk Analysis (PRA). During this analysis, we will jointly determine what risks are most prominent in your unique situation. In addition, we will determine whether those risks should be mitigated and, if so, how this can best be done. PRA often takes place through one or more workshops and interviews with stakeholders. We will involve these stakeholders intensively in the Product Risk Analysis.

The result of the PRA consists of an overview of the main risks that should be covered and the steps that need to be taken in order to mitigate these risks.

Performance Testing in Low-Code

Squerists’ experience with systems developed with Low-Code platforms shows that performance is a concern.

Subsequently, the performance risks prominently arise when there are numerous users making use of an application. Squerist has conducted numerous performance tests on various platforms in the past. Furthermore, we have vast experience with different performance test tools and will independently select the tool(s) that fit the purpose of the platform, organisation, and project. Moreover, at Squerist we have built our own Testing Lab with which we are able to generate large amounts of load needed to conduct a successful performance test.

    We are happy when you are.

    ‘We were under a lot of pressure to go live, which meant that a lot of work had to be done in a short amount of time and that communication had to be brief, direct, and quick. The professionals we hired from Squerist proved themselves to be very flexible. They gave up free time in the evenings and during their holidays to supervise and advise on solutions for the go-live process for Avans.’
