NEW DELHI, Aug 31
Cybernet Software Systems Inc, a San Jose-based multinational corporation, has launched its e-testing venture in India with the inauguration of its Indian office and testing lab in Chennai.
Branded Ready Test Go, the service offers comprehensive and customized testing solutions for all web site testing needs, right from the web application design stage to post implementation. Testing services include both functionality tests as well as performance assessments - such as the load bearing ability of a site, its reaction to a sudden increase in the numbers of users etc. Apart from this, Ready Test Go also offers web site monitoring services that analyze site traffic and usage patterns.
The relevance of Ready Test Go becomes significant in the light of feverish activity in e-commerce. Says Rattan K. Chugh, CEO, Ready Test Go Pvt Ltd, "E-commerce is a big reality which no business can ignore. With competition residing just a click away, the user experience is critical to e-business."
Elaborating on the importance of testing, Chugh said, "Testing has become imperative as even a broken link could mean a customer lost forever. And there are errors that can be spotted only by a user or by a trained tester equipped with the right tools."
Ready Test Go insists that it is the first testing venture in the country to have test labs that simulate web environments and enable offline testing. The company claims that its laboratories - in Chennai, San Jose and Singapore - are equipped with the most widely used systems in the web infrastructure domain: hardware from SUN, IBM, Compaq, HP; software systems that include NT, Solaris, Linux, NAS, IIS, Apache, Oracle and Microsoft SQL; all backed by cutting-edge testing tools.
According to the company, the labs have the ability to simulate up to 10,000 concurrent users initially, with infrastructure to expand the simulation sample to 100,000 users. "Our labs are equipped to test and monitor a web site in conditions that simulate real world scenarios," says Chugh. "As the whole process can take place offline, e-business is not hampered, even when the website is subjected to rigorous tests 24 hours of the day."
The company also claims that the labs can accurately estimate the infrastructure requirement for the web application well before the client decides on purchase - a service that would prove invaluable to clients.
Talking of clients, ICICI has entrusted Ready Test Go with the comprehensive testing of its e-broking web site, icicidirect.com. The ICICI assignment covers testing for performance and functionality, as well as monitoring and analysis of the web site.
