Application Programming Interfaces or APIs are what programmers utilize to connect to the other for facilitating the interaction of data between them. If an API doesn’t work exactly the way it is meant to, or if the effectiveness of an API is compromised, it can negatively impact the realization of business goals, user experience and productivity. When interacting with external systems, most businesses today, use enterprise-grade APIs to connect seamlessly with customers, partners and vendors.
An effective and robust API testing process should encompass several types of tests. Thorough API testing ensures the performance, functionality, and security of APIs which translates to seamless business operations and an enhanced user experience. At Girikon, we also offer automated testing services to augment the efficiency and efficacy of your APIs. Listed below are some of the API testing services offered by Girikon:
Functional testing is done to validate the full cycle functionality of your APIs and how they interact with external systems and processes.
API load testing ensures that your apps and their associated external interactions are able to perform effectively when put under stress owing to a large number of concurrent and sustained transactions.
We have the resources, technology, and tools to automate API transactions. This allows development teams to scale quickly while ensuring their APIs go through rigorous testing before production.
Security Testing ensures routine security checks like user authentication and access meet the predefined business requirements. Common security testing approaches include ethical hacking and fuzz testing.
Web UI testing ensures that the app’s functionality and user experience meets business requirements.
This type of testing ensures that exceptions are logged and handled properly. This ensures that any resource leaks are identified and amended.
Validation testing is to ensure all external interfaces (such as APIs) are working exactly as intended across the entire application. Validation testing typically includes a series of smaller tests such as unit testing, integration testing, system testing and user acceptance testing.
This type of testing is done to ensure that your SOAP APIs communicate with all other application components as intended.
API Testers can identify and fix defects and bugs before they are blown out of proportion.
API testing requires lesser coding when compared to other types of testing, which means your teams can go into production much faster.
Because API testing employs a unique set of conditions and input variables, it allows development teams to address common vulnerabilities while augment the security aspect of an application.
An API test typically involves exchange of data using JSON or XML. These interaction methods are intrinsically language-independent, which means you can make use of any coding language when you want to run automated testing for your software.
Web API testing can be integrated with other tests which means testing teams can easily connect GUI tests with the API testing process.
Development teams can scale quickly and efficiently with API testing. Our test experts will tell you that literally thousands of API test cases can be executed within an hour. That’s a fraction of what it will take for a similar number of functional GUI tests to be executed.
There are plenty of API testing tools available to testing teams today. However, the real challenge lies in selecting the best set of tools that are uniquely suited for your business. When you partner with Girikon, our test experts help you assess, select, and use the most appropriate set of tools and techniques to effectively deliver your API testing needs.
Best Salesforce Consulting Partner...PERIOD
For the past 14 years, I've worked with numerous Salesforce Consulting partners, from very small, boutique style to very big traditional partners (big 5). Girikon has been by far the best partner I've worked so far. They are very receptive, responsive, highly knowledgeable, technical and very quick to address issues to find agreeable solutions. Their cost and value has no comparison in the industry. I highly recommend them and give them a 5 star.

Excellent Project / Product Customizations
Great company to work with. Girikon has been able to take the base Sales Force product and customize it to meet our needs.

I would recommend for future projects!

Girikon analysed, planned and executed our needs perfectly. They took the time to learn our business and our needs specifically. Girikon’s work ethic and understanding of our needs were top-notch.
We wanted to partner with someone who could provide affordable solutions and talent pool of highly skilled resources. In our partnership with Girikon, we got both! Our association has been growing stronger over the years. No matter what technologies will be involved, our next project will certainly be assigned to the Girikon team.
We have been extremely impressed with all of our projects with Girikon. Girikon has helped streamline our internal processes, and made our daily work environment a better place to be. Our work together has reduced the amount of tedious “plug-and-chug” work, helped us to innovate new processes, and allowed us to focus on helping our clients.
We evaluated more than five different companies and chose Girikon as our technology partner. What I appreciate most about their services is that they always deliver with quality. Girikon provided our company end-to-end solution for e-commerce.
I wanted to express my appreciation for the outstanding service received from Girikon. We have had our software for about 7 years now. We still receive the same dedicated service as we did from day one. Very few companies today offer this ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction. I highly recommend Girikon as a development and IT partner!
