I think Big-Bang testing is "Bucket Testing"


Bucket testing is also called as variable testing or A-B testing .

Buckets are our implementation of smart objects. A bucket is a storage unit that contains data. The bucket design goals are: aggregation, intelligence, self-sufficiency, mobility, heterogeneity and archive independence and metadata, as well as the methods for accessing both.buckets contain 0 or more packages.Packages contain 0 or more elements.Actual data objects are stored as elements, and elements are grouped together in packages within a bucket.Testing this actual data objects,which are stores as elements and number of elements that are grouped together in packages,that are within a bucket is known as bucket testing.

Design list about the utility of product design research got me thinking about how the bucket testing of Web sites has seemed to change over time.

Bucket testing, otherwise known as A/B testing, is a methodology for gauging the impact of different product designs on a Web site?s metrics. For those unfamiliar, the basic premise is to run two simultaneous versions of a single or set of Web pages in order to measure the difference in clicks, traffic, transactions, and more between the two.

I first began using bucket testing when designing Web sites with an already established and often quite profitable user base. Because we were experimenting with very different interactions or visual presentations, we needed a way to see the impact of our changes without migrating all our existing users to a new design. Bucket testing provided a great way to send a small amount of traffic (usually less than 5%) to a different user interface without negatively impacting the bottom line if our new design had unintended negative consequences.
