Synechron has expertise not only in the traditional testing contexts, but also in various other testing practices. Specialized expert teams work on specific testing areas such that the given application under test (AUT) with the appropriate test approach form the best fit to the Client.
The Cloud is the future when it comes to delivering and consuming IT resources, such as compute (server) resources, data storage, network bandwidth, and even applications.
Cloud computing consists of three service models:
The cloud testing QA experts’ team at Synechron covers the testing of structural composition encompassing SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Functional testing, performance testing, security and scalability testing, governance testing, and database testing are performed.

Model Based Testing
Model-based testing is the application of model based approach for designing and executing the necessary artifacts to perform software testing, wherein a model of software is a depiction of its behavior.
Synechron’s QA experts’ team is well versed with model based testing techniques and the tools specific to MBT.
Model Based Testing Approach at Synechron
- Early defect detection
- Model based test execution can start before the system is actually built
- Easier test suite maintenance
- Model based testing can encourage different approaches in testing (e.g. online, offline)
- Enables better integration with the design
- Automated test design

Risk Based Testing
RBT prioritizes the features and functions to be tested based on the risk they represent, their importance and likelihood or impact of failure. It involves identification of “critical path test cases” in an attempt to minimize risk by ensuring that the most likely inputs and the ones with the highest consequences are selected. Our QA team has extensive experience working with risk based testing techniques and follows the below staged approach:
- Software system architectures have become increasingly complex
- Increased demand for shorter delivery cycles
- Make informed decisions about where to focus testing efforts
- Can generate a higher degree of confidence in the decision to release the system
- Provides the best possible chance of discovering the worst possible problems
Behavior Driven Development Testing
Behavior driven development testing encourages writing tests that expose the use cases or business scenarios required by the users and stakeholders. This is closely aligned with the goals of domain driven design, which encourages us to model the domain abstractions in the code with a deep understanding of the business models and processes. Hence, BDD style tests are well suited to test the domain model behaviors.
Cucumber, Lettuce, Specflow
In order to ensure that all communications, business processes and applications are inter-related efficiently, it is necessary to prioritize the testing of this specific area. Our QA team has developed a niche in network testing and delivers the test services meticulously. The following tests are carried out with appropriate tool diligence:
- Network performance testing
- Distributed software testing
- Network devices performance testing
- Network stress testing
- Server applications robustness testing
To mitigate the risk of loss of information, Synechron’s QA experts’ team performs security testing to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and authenticity and extend the same to the customers. This enables protection of information and ensures that there is no leak of critical data that may lead to serious business consequences for the customers. There are various techniques that our QA team utilizes to identify potential loopholes and fix them, right from the initial stages of the testing. They also build a balanced and tailored approach to engage security testing from the very beginning of the STLC.
Our QA team offers its services utilizing the following security testing techniques and tools:
- Penetration testing
- Security audit and review
- Security assessment
- Vulnerability assessment
