The Silicon Review
“Don’t fix bugs later; fix them now.” – Steve Maguire
Software Testing is going through some fundamental changes on the execution, philosophy, best practices and tools and it is largely driven by software complexities and faster time to market. In future, the word software testing is going to be obsolete and there will be only one term – Test Automation. Yes, Zado believes that the test automation is here to stay and open source tools will be dominating the next decade.
Many larger organizations are moving towards quality center of excellence model (CoE), which deals with identifying the right tools and best practices to improve overall test efficiency & quality effectiveness. Zado follows the same footprints of Centers of excellence model where they combine their strengths in test automation and their philosophy of supporting the open source community to offer open source test automation CoE.
Founded in 2011, Zado’s focus on test automation is co-jointed with these industry strengths and successful quality organizations in the future will be the ones who have an arsenal of skills for many technologies and test automation tools and hit the business too early to nullify the effects of competition.
Headquartered in Chennai, India, Zado is a provider of test automation solutions with specific focus on web, mobile and cloud applications. The company’s framework-driven approach to test automation ensures reliability and performance of applications in diverse environments and complexities. Their Center of Excellence works towards ensuring the success of every test automation initiative of their customers, irrespective of the stage that they are in – startup, transitional or mature. They have successfully helped startup, ecommerce and independent software vendors with their automation needs. Their goal is to ensure quality of client’s software using test automation optimally.
They are open to doing POCs and Pilots that prove their credibility. They also have an innovative engagement model, Enhance – Optimize – Transfer (EOT), where they implement automation testing and transition it to local teams. Their points of intervention after that, will be only towards enhancing the automation framework. Zado automation frameworks help manual testers write their own test scripts without the necessary automation expertise. This qualifies manual testers into automation testers, providing better economies of scale and faster ROI of client’s automation efforts.
