Testlio 3.0 GA
has made a major expansion and revision of its test management platform.
Testlio 3.0 provides new modules, a robust new UI/UX, new integration
frameworks, and enhanced software engines.
In 2014, Testlio launched the
industry’s first transparent and scalable software system for
fully-managed, expert software testing. Testlio 1.0 and 2.0 provided
clients with unlimited licenses to view, ingest, respond, monitor, and
update testing experiences—all with Testlio services personnel and
expert testers performing test runs.
Robust New UI/UX: with Testlio 3.0, all client-facing screens and workflows have received a major design update. Leveraging the latest in digital design approaches, Testlio 3.0 is built to be intuitive, expandable, and quick. The thoughtfulness of the new Testlio 3.0 UI/UX reflects 6 years of testing experiences and more than 6.5 million completed software tests.
New Integration Frameworks: the upgraded Testlio Builds service now equips seamless package handoffs from CI/CD systems. The Testlio API powers issue management and other software integrations. With these new integration frameworks, Testlio 3.0 provides a foundation for ecosystem approaches to build, release, and test management—maximizing efficiency and consistency.
Enhanced Software Engines: Testlio 3.0 delivers multiple new algorithms and workflows to help testing move fast (including preparation, execution, and learning). For example, a new engine for identification and selection ensures that the right real-world device is ready when needed. Today, Testlio offers more than 1,200 real hardware device types in more than 150 countries around the world—all run by an expert, global network of more than 10K proven, human testers.
Networked Testing Capabilities
With Testlio 3.0, a new era of
networked testing is possible. Networked testing builds on crowdtesting
and outsourcing practices—with critical differences:
Burstable swarm teams: a core tenet of networked testing is the use of on-demand teams of 10-50+ testers per major run. These testers burst into action quickly, swarm the testing surface, and then intentionally go dormant until the next run. Different from bug bounty testing models, networked testing manages and incentivizes teams to cooperate for work distribution, collaborative problem solving, and rapid reproducibility checks.
Compressed testing windows: for networked testing to serve the demands of modern, agile engineering teams, testing must happen quickly. Three core concepts are important: first, the work must be bite-sized, generally broken into multi-minute or small-hour chunks. Second, the testing window must be short. Third, testing should occur in the crevices of engineering teams’ work.
Connected real systems: finally, the entire testing ecosystem must be tethered and software-powered. Builds need to be ingested. Dozens of real hardware devices in target geographies are used to represent true user experiences. Issues need to be structured, passed to third-party tools like JIRA, and highly actionable. Everything must be traceable for reporting and insights.
Networked testing is valuable for
multiple forms of software QA testing. It is especially powerful,
impactful, and economical for native consumer apps (which often release
every 1 or 2 weeks). It can also be faster, easier, and less expensive
than automated functional testing.
Testlio has become the leader in
managed app testing through a set of fully-managed service offerings,
using networked testing methods to serve as an extended QA team for
companies small and large. Testlio clients today have more than 1.6
billion collective users.
Immediate run initiation: while the Testlio Services team can still oversee and manage test cycles, clients can now launch testing work 24/7, collaborating directly with pre-screened, validated, client-specific, testing experts.
Ongoing issue oversight: with the Testlio 3.0 platform, issues are available for review, modification, prioritization, and escalation. Clients can lean on Testlio Services for all of these responsibilities—or can choose to do some things themselves.
Real-time tracking: via a traceable and transparent model, clients can understand everything that is happening within their testing universe.
