The key principles that underpins the test strategy which closely aligns with the market operators’ strategic intent for development teams.
How testing will form part of the ways of working and Agile delivery process, the standard test methodologies to be adopted by all teams, the types of testing that will be executed throughout the software delivery phases of digital applications and lastly how CI/CD should be leveraged to support the enablement of test automation.
A standardised approach for test tools and frameworks to be used and the reasoning why certain tools are fit for purpose. This was accompanied by a proof of concept to trial test automation frameworks recommended for use.
The test environments required for different types of testing to be performed including a view of both integrated and production-like test environments.
The test data life cycle including creation, retention, clean-up and relevant ownership of data.
The types of test reports and its purpose to be produced as well as when the test reports will be produced at various points throughout the development/delivery phases.
The process for the assessment and prioritisation of defects found during testing as well as the end-to-end traceability of defects and requirements.
