Our testers build role-based models for your customers, partners and internal teams, covering the end-to-end processes. We identify, articulate and seed test workflows that span several systems and applications, both internal and external, to validate a business process. The representative data we use and the chain of events we simulate in our business process tests match the production data and the real behavior of the personnel involved, including customers and partners.
We use Machine Learning (ML) on the logs and other auditing sources to create automated business process tests for periodic and continuous validation. We assure business continuity against the known/unknown changes in any individual components of the process (besides the other virtues of automation).
We have expertise in using several market tools and covering all entry points, including legacy systems, GUIs, batch-jobs, web/mobile apps, APIs and services.
We use our experience and honesty to automate only the right candidates. We deliver the promise of test automation by developing assets with accuracy, repeatability, coverage as the criteria. Our AI powered automation suites produce valuable information and improved test coverage rendering intelligent end to end test automation and thereby build confidence in the enterprise IT managers.
The pivotal value addition in the Kairos automation approach is to combine Automated Test Design and Test Execution. We make our best efforts to extend this and perform Robotic Process Automation on tasks leading up to defect triage meetings and retesting.
Our automation engineers understand that there is no single framework that works in all contexts. We have several frameworks at the UI, middleware, API, services and database access points. Likewise, we have several utility libraries and accelerators from our TCoE. We carefully select parts of these reusable assets to jumpstart new projects.
Our tool expertise and experience include all the market-leading tools and our scripting techniques and automation recipes cover the everyday needs of a heterogeneous enterprise.
Tools: Selenium, Appium, UFT/QTP, SoapUI, Ranorex, TestComplete, Shell Scripting, LeapWork, Katalon and TestSigma (AI based).
We offer mobility testing as an integral part of all of our testing services, or as a standalone service if your enterprise has newly developed a mobile solution that needs expert testing with a jumpstart. We target various new characteristics brought by the mobile world.
Multi-device testing (capacity, sizes, operating systems, locations and networks) with a mix of real and virtual test beds.
Mobile user experience testing with the core interface, functionality, performance and security.
Configure and manage a cloud-based mobile test lab (new devices, conditioned handsets).
A critical problem we solve in our mobile testing projects is that of covering the exploding combinations newly introduced by the devices such as battery conditions, various states like flight mode, settings & preferences, typing speeds. We leverage the Pairwise Test Combination generator from our TCoE to cover the possibilities in a minimally optimal number of test runs.
Mobile Test Automation using market-leading tools, commercial and open-source leveraging the mobile test libraries from our TCoE.
Tools: Crowd-sourcing, Appium, Espresso, XCUITest, Selendroid, Robotium, TestSigma, Perfecto Mobile, SIGOS AppExperience (deviceanywhere), Visual Studio App Center (Xamarin TestCloud), SauceLabs Cloud, Zoho MDM, Citrix ZenMobile and IBM MaaS360.
You have a ready and proven approach to measure the performance of your applications, benchmark them and additionally get valuable suggestions along with the standard metrics.
We create mappings between your diversified user base, partner systems and the enterprise stack to create potential workloads. The objective of our performance test design is to measure the performance and to observe the degradation trends.
We apply a comprehensive four-dimensional test targeting load, stress, volume and endurance. The reports show the transaction-level metrics and provide crucial diagnostics need to fix the problems.
You can consume our deliverables in periodically repeating the tests with minimal changes.
In addition to the performance testing activities, we also provide monitoring and alerting services with a geographically distributed setup. Our monitoring is 90% tool-based activity and 10% direct human experience, helping you fix performance issues in near real-time (all the time).

- OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities for Web apps
- OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities for Mobile apps
- Homegrown cheat-sheets for Abuse Cases
We give you detailed reports covering the identified issues, the threats they pose, the damage potential associated with them and the associated diagnostic information.
Given the maverick attitude of our security testers and as a value add, we prepare “abuse cases” for all the critical business use cases. It involves understanding the functionality in the workflows and trying to misuse them for carrying out any unwanted activities.
Our test reports include feedback/tips to developers for ‘thinking security’ in their future coding.
Our testers create the tests with years of experience in the Security Domain. Our automation engineers build scripts to bring repeatability to the tests, enabling you to perform security test cycles periodically or on-demand when changes happen in your digital ecosystem.
Our attack matrix is a growing and jumpstart source to help you find and fix the security loopholes before hackers exploit them in production.
Note: Today, many companies incorporate static code analyzers into their build process; however, we recommend our outside-in service as we bring a unique and dynamic mindset to the process.
