Unit Test Procedure
The goal of unit testing is to assure that all functions and features of a single executable unit of code perform as per the specifications. Unit tests are created and executed by the developer of the unit.
Integration Test Procedure
Integration testing is performed once unit testing has been completed for all units contained in the subsystems being tested. The goal of integration testing is to ensure that all interacting subsystems in a system interface function correctly with one another to produce the desired results. Furthermore, integration tests will ensure that the introduction of one or more subsystems into the system does not have an adverse effect on existing functionality.
System Test Procedure
The goal of System Testing is to ensure that the system performs as per the functional requirements specified by client. This testing covers functionality, usability, security, and compatibility of the application. A system test covers the testing of functions within the system.

BGT Systems Software Testing Framework
Test Automation Focus
It is the process of programming a computer application with some browser-supported language. The purpose is getting it accessed and updated over the Internet network. Like the conventional software applications, the web applications are not needed to be installed in users’ personal computers.

1. Mobile Application Testing:
BGT brings an in depth knowledge in Software Testing principles combined with expert knowledge in mobile technologies and End to End test practices to help all Enterprises fast track and manage their mobility deployments to business and end users.
In today’s technology driven business environment mobile applications have progressed from a mere “fun to have” to a necessity. As enterprises seek the productivity and efficiency gains available from mobility, mobile applications also serve to enable people to work on the move, smarter, manage costs and potentially even drive revenue.
Early adopters have already laid down a mobile blueprint, and are deploying enterprise mobility into their operations. A large number of enterprises are now recognizing the potential benefits of this trend. But as they start to build mobility they are grappling with a number of common challenges, covering the conceptualization, design, build and deploy phases of creating an efficient enterprise mobility strategy of which testing forms and integral part.
A well-orchestrated mobile application automation strategy, BGT’s Mobile Testing Architecture enables organizations to reduce effort and accelerate time to market.
For business peace of mind, mobile applications must be tested to ensure they run on key platforms and across a multitude of networks. Despite the pressures of short mobile development cycles, quality testing of applications across operating systems, device platforms and networks is a necessary but daunting task to ensure long-term success in what is a highly fragmented and competitive global market. Moreover, nonfunctional testing — including usability, security and adaptability — is as critical as functional testing. Effective testing can help device makers and application developers collect appropriate metrics that improve product quality.
2. Cloud Testing:
Cloud Computing is a much more generalized term in which little or no centralized infrastructure exists. Sets of loosely coupled data centers work together achieving high utilization levels to perform common tasks, presenting GUI interfaces to users through virtualization or thin clients via the ‘Cloud’.
Cloud Computing presents tangible benefits to businesses, these can be both immediate and wide ranging. The benefits of utilizing the cloud ranges from reductions in cost of ownership to location independence and scalability, however along with these potential benefits comes a new set of concerns:
- Data integrity
Testing must be at the core of any cloud solution to ensure the delivery of a safe, integrated solution which meets the needs of the business it is to serve.
Common types of Cloud Computing:
- SaaS – Software as a service
- PaaS – Platforms as a service
- HaaS – Hardware as a service
All types of cloud computing services have several common factors:
Scalability: The distributed nature of Cloud solutions allow utilization to be spread evenly amongst available servers meaning applications can scale on demand.
Location independent access: By using thin clients or virtualization in the cloud. The only limitation is internet access.
Reduced cost of ownership: Using service providers with currently existing Cloud deployments means the need to own hardware to support the Cloud solution can be almost removed.
Server efficiency/utilization: The spread of server workload improves server efficiency and increases utilization of otherwise lesser used servers producing greater return on investment.
Green IT: The reduced requirement for hardware, implementations and location dependence means business can reduce the environmental impact and cost of its own IT infrastructure.
Instantly deployable environments: Environments can be built and deployed for specific needs such as development, testing or deployment. The use of virtualization within the cloud means that these environments can be scalable to production size and deployed in far smaller timescales.
Reduced maintenance cost: The centralization of all IT components means that maintenance can be carried out then mirrored in all end user instances of the cloud solution.
The RISKS associated with utilizing the cloud:
Lack of control: With outsourced IT infrastructure, business does not maintain total control of their data, impact down time, drive technology change or influence decisions which may impact their solution.
Security: How can business ensure that sensitive information which traverses the cloud is safe and secure?
Privacy concerns: What can business do to maintain the privacy of their information when using the cloud?
Data Integrity: When using third party solutions for Cloud Computing what assurances do businesses have their valuable data remains intact?
Availability: Cloud Computing solutions rely on the availability of their infrastructure to be able to function. Should a business critical Cloud Solution be unavailable for any time, what is the business impact?
3. Oracle Testing:
Businesses today make significant investments in web applications. To derive real business value from these investments, companies need to deliver superior performance and user experience.

Contract to Hire
Temp-to-hire gives the client a great hiring advantage – the ability to evaluate a potential candidate on the job before making a commitment. This kind of hands-on assessment leads to more informed hiring decisions.
Hiring the wrong person can wreak havoc on an organization – so it’s always safer to “try before you buy.” Moreover, sometimes you have a technical contingent worker who fits perfectly into your organization. Should you and the contingent worker placed by BGT decide you’d like to change the nature of the relationship to full time employment, BGT is happy to accommodate.

As an employer, you get tremendous flexibility in terms of monitoring work performance of a consultant prior to making a formal offer of employment.
BGT Contract-to-Hire solutions provide our customers the option of hiring the candidate after an initial 3-6 months on contract. During the initial engagement, our clients have the opportunity to review the candidate’s core skill level as well as ‘on-the-job’ interpersonal and presentation skills prior to making a hiring commitment.
Contract-to-Hire Solutions are offered on an hourly bill rate for the contract period which is valid till the date the consultant gets into a regular employment with the company. It may also be driven by minimum number of hours that the consultant must work as a BGT Consultant prior to conversion. Finally, BGT receives a conversion fee once the consultant is actually converted to regular employee status with the company.
At BGT, the process for candidate interviews, screening and recruitment is similar to that for a temporary employee; however the candidate will have a long-term goal, interest and involvement in the company. BGT is an employee centric company and makes investment in developing core as well as soft skills of a candidate to have a smooth sailing for a consultant from being a contract resource to a hired resource. This will involves:
- Regular trainings during pre-contract period
