Sourcing Better Testing and Development Solutions in a Post COVID-19 World

COVID-19 has mandated “new” delivery methods. Nearshore was made for this, working from home, remote, and teleworking are already part of our DNA.

Very early in this crisis, we reached out to our clients to work with them on contingency plans, well ahead on any government mandates anywhere. Proactive planning and focus on execution have resulted in consistent delivery. Customers were consulted and informed of staged plans to move work out of offices, dependencies were identified and resolved ahead of time.

Laptop disk encryption, data loss prevention software, secure VPN access to Dextra R&D hardware, and client servers in the US were verified.

It is vital to live by your core values. At Dextra, our team’s well-being is our priority. Employees are being informed with regular corporate updates since the beginning of this health crisis. Teams are fully committed to plans and deliver results with shortened feedback cycles.

If your software provider has a set of values; they should certainly put them into action. They should be transparent and demonstrate integrity and respect for their people, and their clients.

Companies must provide a robust and scalable Telecom infrastructure consisting of multiple and redundant carriers that can pick up bandwidth when others fail. Employees should also have high-speed connections from home along with access to collaboration software.

In this webinar hosted by the Institute for Robotic Process Automation and Artificial Intelligence (IRPA AI), experts from IT consultancy Strategy Shore as well as Dextra Technologies discuss how remote working will need to be a part of every company’s DNA moving forward.

We remain vigilant but optimistic about the future. Watch the entire webinar below and get to know more about how Dextra’s approach and deep expertise across different technologies have supported our clients before. You can also view the slides here

Uses of Wearable Tech and Device Testing

Uses of Wearables and QA

The fitness wearable tracker market is among the leading promising segments of the wearable industry as it keeps growing every year. Millions of people wear some kind of activity tracker and use the device to watch their health, to see how far they’ve run or how many steps they’ve taken. Consumers love wearables and the information they supply.

Aside from being trendy, there are several astounding stories of fitness trackers alerting people of sudden medical emergencies, as they will monitor a user’s heart rate and detect and report spikes. The information recorded by activity trackers has even helped to clarify police cases in the US.

Lawyers could use as strong evidence against a suspect if the user had their pulse levels raised, the location where they were at a particular time, and even the precise moment when their heart stopped beating. Did a suspect lie, and say they were sleeping, but their heartbeat suggests it was not as stated? Did the victim’s steady heart rate jump at a certain time?

Wearables demand multiple layers of security, and the data currently generated by these devices must be handled with care as it can be evidence-based information and knowledge not only for the individual.

Regarding QA, what’s more important is how the hardware integrates with the software, and how smooth the interaction is. There are several crucial steps to test smart wearable devices, including material, hardware, firmware, and external software integration testing.

QA engineers test functionality. Firmware testing efforts are focused on the software and the integration data layer on the wearable devices. Manual and automated testing teams can continually ratify the precise operation of all the tracker modules like GPS, heart rate monitoring, altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, among others. Mobile testing teams can verify the right interaction of the application and the interaction of the data of the tracker with the platform.

Some enterprises invent wearables, and some companies test them under their supervision. Our team is currently developing test automation frameworks as well as testing multiple trackers and smartwatches in development and in the market. Doing the same for a mobile application that serves as a communication bridge between trackers, and the servers, additionally to provide the user with reports of their physical activity.

Contact Dextra today to learn more about how we help one of our clients in the consumer health market to prove and approve their firmware and mobile app.
