First and foremost, we must define what a Banking Domain is and how it could be useful to you. In the simplest terms, a banking domain is the total components and features necessary to run a banking system from start to finish. Items such as banking products, customers, sales processes, etc. Anything necessary to make a banking system function.
By establishing a functioning framework by which the system operates, bank managers are able to establish points at which – if a break down occurs – errors can be addressed and improvements can be implemented. With this knowledge, modern developers are able to create dedicated applications that put the banking process into the hands of the customers.
What is Banking Domain Testing
A shift has occurred and leads us into a world of online banking. The ATM was the first member of the “Internet of Things,” which is a fancy way of saying “items that can connect to the internet and record data.” It goes to follow that the banking industry would continue down that path and become more and more online-based. With this online presence, manual testing of banking domains is necessary to see if the online presence is free of errors and supports the quality user interface.
Here’s why you need it
Without banking domain testing, developers of apps that help foster a more secure and easy to use banking process would be filled with errors and bugs. By testing out their products before a complete launch of the app, developers are able to work out any issues that might have been experienced. Through Q&A sessions, they are able to poll the room and see what works and what doesn’t.
Developers would rather be safe than sorry, and with such a vital industry like banking, you would too. Keeping the testing process implemented allows bugs to be fixed prior to launch, rather than once your money is already circulating through the error-filled app.
Necessities in your banking app
With our transition into the digital age, supporting banking domains via mobile applications has become a requirement of any major banking institution. More and more app developers have teamed up with banks to create the best and most secure banking app they can. Through testing, they can see what works and what doesn’t – but here is a basic list of what a good banking app should include.
Safe and secure
Authentication systems and secure credit card holding spaces are a requirement of any self-respecting banking app. You’re keeping people’s financial records and access to their identity on file, so a strong and unbreakable line of defense is necessary. As the banking industry moves online, hackers and thieves turn their eyes to your mobile wallets.
Anything that can make the banking process simpler and easier to go about for users should be looked into. Modern inclusions in banking apps include QR readers that allow you to scan a check directly to your account from your phone without needing to go to the bank. Some apps have ATM locators installed so you’re never stranded without access to your money.
