POST IMPLEMENTATION TESTING
Identifying and resolving defects as quickly as possible should be a priority for companies launching and updating their apps and websites with new functionality
WHAT IS POST IMPLEMENTATION TESTING?
Post implementation testing – or deployment testing – is a concentrated period of testing that follows the deployment of a website or app into the live environment.
A variety of compatibility and exploratory checks identify any deployment or configuration issues in the live environment which may have been obscured in test environments.
WHY DO YOU NEED POST IMPLEMENTATION TESTING?
Reputation and revenue depends on frictionless, error-free, e-commerce experiences. New website or app deployments are often critical moments for customer trust and future brand loyalty.
Having a deployment process in test environments is the way many companies satisfy themselves that a release is safe to deploy to the live environment, but even if a website or app has been thoroughly checked for bugs, defects and issues in the test environment, deploying to live as part of your post-release testing process can reveal previously unnoticed issues and potentially create new ones.
Unexpected interactions between hardware or software, issues with responsive design, 404s, broken links and slow website speeds often only become apparent post-deployment.
But once customers are complaining about these issues via social media, or you begin to notice the effect on your website or app conversion rate, it may already be too late to reverse the damage they’ve done.
