Exploratory testing (ET) is a cognitively challenging, multi-disciplinary task that is essential for any software development firm. As the name suggests, ET majorly involves learning and investigating new software and its functionalities. During ET, the software tester often has all the freedom to decide what has to be tested and how the time has to be managed while testing. Unlike other software testing methods, in ET, the test cases are not created in advance, but the testers check the software application on the fly. ET is a simultaneous process of designing test cases and executing them at the same time.
Exploratory testing has emerged as one of the most sought-after methods of software testing in recent times. The distinctive approach used in this method relies on human intuition and expertise of experienced testers to identify highly critical bugs at an early stage in the SDLC. Hence today it has become paramount for software developers to have exploratory testing to improve the functionality, usability, performance, security, and user experience of their software.
Flatworld Solutions has been at the forefront in offering exemplary exploratory software testing services to clients across the world. Thanks to our efficient use of cutting-edge software testing tools and an array of experienced team-members, we enable organizations to develop their software at a quicker rate and a highly competitive cost. Thus, outsourcing exemplary software to Flatworld Solutions will allow you to make efficient software in a very short time.

Some of our exploratory testing services include -
As the name suggests, we categorize various kinds of bugs found in previous versions of the software. After the initial categorization, search for the best method to test the application for these defects. In the last stage, we reach and scrutinize the root cause behind these defects in the application.
In this service, we create a complete detailed schedule of everything involved in the testing process. It starts by making a schedule of what needs to be tested and knowing which different aspects are to be tested. We also make a schedule of how the steps will be carried out. During this phase, our software testers start analyzing all the various test ideas.
Fixed Time Testing
Fixed Time Testing is one of the most critical steps in exploratory testing. Here, our software testers test the software application for a specific amount of time without having any type of hindrances. To ensure optimum productivity and to analyze the numerous facets of the application from all possible angles, this step is mostly carried out in teams. The testers check the application response by testing the specific outcome.
Analyzing Test Results
Once all tests are conducted and the results arrive, a team of highly qualified and experienced testers analyzes these test results. This part is very important as a critical analysis of the test results is crucial in understanding the various aspects of the software and to scrutinize various coverage areas.
Test Result Compilation
Compiling the available results is a very important aspect of exploratory testing. A neat and systematic compilation of test results enables companies to compare the test results with the original charter and to understand whether any more tests need to be conducted or not. Our team of experienced professionals is perfectly equipped with all the skills and tools to compile the test results and systemically sort them.
Exploratory Testing Process at Flatworld
An Exploratory testing process undergoes 5 stages of test preparation. This is called as session-based testing management (SBTM).
01. Test Mission
This stage involves the categorization of common types of faults found in past projects and the analysis of the root cause of the problems or faults. The testers also find the risks in the testing process and based on it come up with various ideas to test the application.
02. Test Charter
This is an essential process in exploratory testing as it determines how the end-user could use the system. The test charter suggests what things need to be tested and how they can be tested. The charter also suggests how can the specific aspects be tested and notes down the things that need to be looked at. Test ideas are very important as they are the starting point of exploration testing.
03. Test Sessions
In this process a team of testers (usually 2) working for a prolonged period which is more than 90 minutes. A key aspect of this phase is that the sessions do not have any interruptions. This session allows the testers to react to the response from the system and create the correct outcome.
04. Test Results
In this stage, the defects are evaluated and the learnings from the testing are noted down. This stage also allows testers to analyze the coverage areas.
05. Result interpretation
In the final stage, the results received are compiled and systematically arranged so that they can be compared with the charter. Based on the comparisons, the testers check whether any more testing is needed or not.
Exploratory versus Ad-hoc Testing
The benefits of exploratory testing are countless. It serves as an added layer of testing apart from the scripted testing processes and also helps in developing a highly functional software product. There has always been confusion between Ad-hoc and ET for a long time now. Both these methods have some similarities, which is why people are usually confused, however, they are certainly different. Some of the key differences between them are listed here -
Begins with exploration of the application while learning
Begins with analyzing the application and then testing the product
