What is End-to-End Testing?
End-to-end testing is used to test the functionality of a digital product in real-world conditions, reproducing a real user scenario from start to finish. Digital products are getting more complex every day. There are several layers, sub-systems, external databases, and third-party devices, but the end-user will see everything as one. So, if one part isn’t working properly it will have a negative impact on your entire product – not only on the one sub-system that produced the bugs reported.
That’s why an end-to-end testing framework shouldn’t only concentrate on testing the system itself, but should cover all components. This means that the entire user experience is examined – in real-world conditions.
The Challenge: connecting the online and offline world
Connected cars, smart fridges, mobile tickets, and so on – our daily lives are becoming increasingly digital. The online world and the offline world are no longer separate, as connectivity continues to grow. Analog and digital are rapidly merging with digital products connecting the virtual world to the real one.
Due to the interaction of all these components, there are more complex matters than pure software testing and they need to be tackled differently in order to ensure high quality. Today, it’s essential to examine how interfaces interact and whether they’re able to serve their purpose. End-to-end testing helps you find bugs in sub-systems and therefore improves the user experience of the overall digital product.
The Solution: test your digital product exactly where it’s used
At home, in the subway, or on the street – our Crowdtesters will go to the exact test environment where your digital product will be used. Your mobile apps, services, and products can undergo functional testing and usability testing, in the real world and on real devices for a cost-effective and accurate testing experience.
Use the power of our Crowd with more than 400,000 testers all over the world and more than 900,000 devices. They’re able to execute several test cases to ensure that your digital products function as intended.
Whether your product offers creating an account online and providing proof of identity to the post office, dealing with complex connected car applications or intelligent devices that are a part of the smart home; crowdsourced testing from end to end can be used in several different industries and is especially valuable when testing the Internet-of-Things. Find out if your products are ready to be launched on the market or improve your existing applications by using the feedback of your potential clients.
