Software development can be a lengthy and complex process, but there are ways to make it more efficient. John Phillips, vice president of the public sector business at Tricentis, has urged government agencies to adopt a so-called ‘no-code’ methodology when testing risk-based software.

The no-code approach relies on automated software processes that the user interacts with via a graphical user interface (GUI), which makes it easy for even non-programmers to create an effective software solution. It can be compared to the evolution of computer use in general before GUIs such as Windows made personal computers more accessible to the general public.

Mobile apps and web platforms can make public services much more accessible to the average citizen, including some of the most vulnerable in society. They also save the state time and money by cutting down on paperwork and in-person meetings. When developing these apps, government agencies are responsible for sensitive information that can affect the lives of many citizens. As such, they should strive to detect, resolve, and prevent any potential vulnerabilities in their software systems during development and after deployment. Risk-based software testing focuses on identifying and testing an app based on any project points of failure, prioritizing security and vulnerability.

In a statement, Phillips recommended that they integrate both static and dynamic security testing into their software development workflows, predicting that agencies will be able to cover “more than 85% of their risks with only 20% of the effort”.

Phillips goes on to recommend his company’s product, Tricentis Tosca, a no-code platform that ditches coding script in favor of AI-enabled tools and an easily understood graphical user interface. The Tricentis Tosca platform facilitates collaboration among software development teams and aims to help speed up testing throughout the entire software development process. It offers a central platform that stakeholders can use to create, test, and iterate on functions without any required scripting or programming knowledge.
