Perspective

In today’s software engineering, as never before, tests have become a critical ingredient. The stability and functionality of the software is now at the core of the software development process. Methodologies such as TDD (Test Driven Development) or BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) clearly indicate the trends in the future development of software engineering.

Such tests can be subdivided into many different types – depending on their intended use, application design, test duration and testing method. Consequently, a single test can be on the one hand a functional test, and on the other hand a part of the acceptance test, while some software developers will also regard it as an element of the regression test.

The names of the tests determine their design and logic.  A test should primarily be a tool to create, maintain and use a system whose quality is continuously being improved.

Approaches

Tests in terms of the time of creation of the tested parts of the application:

  • Manual tests of newly developed parts of the system,  including both functional testsand non-functional tests, integration tests, etc.  concerning the current sprint/evolution/prototype/iteration.
  • Automatic regression tests of parts of the system developed during previous sprints/evolutions/prototypes/iterations, which were tested manually during the previous cycles.

We perform the following tests:

  • Functional black-box tests from the level of the user interface (WWW)
  • Structural white-box tests
  • Integration tests
  • Performance tests.

Testing procedure

The cyclical testing procedure usually looks like this:

  • Creating test scenarios
  • Providing the Continuous Testing service implemented using automatic tests
  • Repeating the automatic testing process (regression tests) after completing a particular fragment of software development
  • Manual tests based on the previously defined test scenarios
  • Determining test scenarios to be automated
  • Implementing test scenarios as an element of automatic regression tests in the next test run.

Perspective

Computer virtualisation has significantly contributed to the use of available computing power and – to an extent – made applications and operating systems independent of the particular complexity of hardware. However, virtualisation is not without its drawbacks. The most important of them is the loss of performance to make multiple copies of identical operating systems.

Containerisation is a type of virtualisation that is free of this problem. A container is a single application, including all of the necessary elements (executable files, libraries, configuration, etc.). In general, the container does not include the operating system. If the entire system consists of multiple applications (e.g. database server, application server or web server), each of them can form a separate container. Containers can be combined into larger, interacting structures. 

Individual containers and entire sets of containers, or even computer networks, can be run in the cloud. Although containerisation is generally implemented using the Docker system, sets of such containers are usually created, run and controlled using the Kubernetes system. 

Thanks to Docker/Kubernetes, it is possible, for instance, to define efficient systems based on micro-services, which can perform even the most complex processes in a planned, secure and fully manageable way.

Scope

We develop software through practical application of containerisation (Docker/Kubernetes) in the full spectrum of software production problems: 

  • Continuous Integration
  • Continuous Testing 
  • Continuous Delivery

We have extensive expertise and practical experience in the following areas: 

  • efficient container creation
  • container distribution
  • defining the security context
  • Kubernetes cluster resources management
  • work automation. 


We routinely resolve our clients’ problems, helping them create and manage local and cloud-based Kubernetes clusters.

We also have our own server resources which can be provided in order to containerise individual applications or even entire systems composed of hundreds of applications and systems.

Services

Our services:

  • analysing the existing systems and applications in terms of containerisation opportunities
  • containerising applications and entire systems in the Docker environment
  • orchestration, i.e. developing sets of containerised applications and creating virtual networks to combine these applications and create complete systems
  • planning and designing micro-service environments – based on Docker/Kubernetes or PTR Atom micro-services
  • creating, managing and maintaining Kubernetes clusters both in our infrastructure and in the client’s infrastructure, and also in an environment such as the Google Kubernetes Engine
  • monitoring containerised environments
  • defining the security context
  • full range of consulting and training regarding the Kubernetes/Docker technologies in all of the above areas.
Atom Platform

For all of our services and products, we offer the option of running the system on eSourcing infrastructure, and our specialists ensure that they will managed in a fully professional manner. We have two independent computing centres that ensure the highest standards of data processing, protection and transmission and guarantee uninterrupted services. We provide outsourcing services in compliance with the amended Banking Law Act regarding outsourcing. Our mechanisms and procedures ensure reliable operation of the systems – in particular, owing to the continuity of business plans.

Why is it beneficial to use outsourcing?

  • chance to focus on the primary business of the company
  • optimising internal processes and employment structure
  • reducing Capex and Opex expenses
  • dynamic scaling
  • trouble-free upgrade
  • increased security of the solution
  • greater competitiveness and effectiveness of operations on the market

Software as a Service (SaaS)

Comprehensive service consisting of developing, implementing and maintaining the client's software at eSourcing. The systems function in a highly efficient and optimised technical infrastructure of eSourcing that guarantees maximum security, and all processes are managed entirely by our specialists.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Outsourcing model where the client is provided with IT infrastructure – hardware and dedicated software. In the IaaS service, similarly to SaaS, the hardware is located in a secure server room of eSourcing, but it is the client that is responsible for managing the software installed there. In this model, we take over services directly related to the hardware layer, e.g. monitoring of devices or back-ups.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

This service consists of eSourcing providing a fully functional hardware and system platform to be used to run the client's applications. Additionally, as part of the PaaS service, eSourcing ensures tailor-made package of maintenance and administration services and recovery of lost data, if necessary.

When providing outsourcing services, we meet the most stringent requirements for such models of cooperation:

  • State-of-the-art server room equipped with the latest access control systems (including systems using biometric technologies, video monitoring, redundant air conditioning systems, professional firefighting systems, emergency power supply and other IT security measures)
  • DRC – we provide a disaster recovery centre operating 24/7 that may be used as the emergency location in the online mode
  • Back-up connections – if the primary connection fails, a back-up connection with suitable parameters is activated
  • COB – we use internal procedures to ensure reliable operation of systems – in particular, we have suitable continuity of business plans, both for the entirety of the client's process and for specific services/systems.

Our services successfully undergo audits carried out by our clients several times a year.

  • committed team
  • dedicated solutions always delivered on time
  • full commitment during implementation
  • availability throughout the term of our cooperation
