Ad hoc testing provides a flexible and dynamic approach, going beyond the created test cases. Unlike the traditional approach, ad hoc testing involves spontaneous, exploratory testing where testers rely on their intuition, experience, and domain knowledge to uncover potential issues in software applications. Since 2010, DeviQA has served companies across diverse domains, such as Healthcare, FinTech, Real Estate, Cybersecurity, Retail, AdTech, and others. Our extensive expertise enables us to create and implement holistic test strategies that, among others, include the execution of ad hoc testing.

Our Solutions For Your Ad Hoc Testing Challenges

With our expertise and tailored solutions, we help you overcome obstacles, optimize your testing processes, and deliver high-quality software products efficiently.

Lack of Defined Processes

Challenge

Many organizations struggle with ad hoc testing due to a lack of defined processes. Testing activities are often initiated haphazardly without clear guidelines or procedures in place. This can lead to inefficiencies, inconsistencies, and ultimately, ineffective testing outcomes.

Solution

Our team specializes in developing tailored testing frameworks and processes that align with your organization's specific needs. By establishing clear guidelines, protocols, and workflows, we ensure that ad hoc testing activities are conducted systematically and efficiently. This helps streamline the testing process, improve test coverage, and ultimately enhance the quality of your software products.

Resource Constraints

Challenge

Another common challenge in ad hoc testing is resource constraints. Many organizations struggle to allocate sufficient time, manpower, and tools for comprehensive testing efforts. Limited resources can hinder the effectiveness of ad hoc testing and compromise the quality of software releases.

Solution

Our team offers flexible staffing solutions and access to cutting-edge testing tools to address resource constraints. Whether you need additional testing expertise on-demand or require access to specialized testing environments, we have the resources to support your ad hoc testing needs. By leveraging our scalable resources, you can ensure thorough testing coverage without straining your internal resources.

Inadequate Test Coverage

Challenge

Ad hoc testing often suffers from inadequate test coverage, as testing activities may not be systematically planned or executed. This can result in critical defects slipping through the cracks and reaching production environments, leading to costly rework and customer dissatisfaction.

Solution

Our experienced testing professionals employ comprehensive test strategies to ensure maximum coverage across all critical areas of your software applications. Through a combination of exploratory testing, risk-based testing, and scenario-based testing, we identify and mitigate potential defects early in the development lifecycle. By focusing on high-priority areas and leveraging automation where applicable, we help you achieve optimal test coverage and minimize the risk of software failures.

Types of Ad Hoc Testing We Perform

Our experts specialize in a variety of ad hoc testing types to ensure the smooth work of your software.

Buddy Testing

This type of ad hoc testing suggests the collaborative work of a minimum of two team members, usually a developer and a QA engineer. As a rule, it is executed after unit testing. By combining the efforts of both teams, buddy testing helps ensure thorough testing and software readiness for release.

Monkey Testing

Our team takes a playful yet thorough approach, simulating random inputs and interactions to uncover potential vulnerabilities and weak points in your software. Like a mischievous monkey exploring every nook and cranny, this testing type is executed to discover unforeseen issues, ensuring your software is resilient and can handle unexpected cases with ease.

Pair Testing

Our seasoned testers work in pairs on the same software modules, brainstorming great ideas, sharing opinions, executing tests, and uncovering unexpected issues. This dynamic approach ensures that your software not only meets the expected requirements but also behaves adequately in unexpected situations, making it a true companion in the digital realm.

Choose Your Cooperation Model

We understand that every business is unique, and flexibility is key when it comes to collaboration. That's why we offer three distinct models of cooperation, ensuring that you can choose the approach that aligns perfectly with your goals and requirements.
