Business value of software testing in software development

The primary value of software testing and QA automation is the sum of its outputs – confidence and speed. Everyone expects the software to

  • work as promised or advertised;
  • do its job quickly and efficiently;
  • provide distinct value.

Take into account that the developers typically have a different focus than QA engineers. A developer focuses solely on how to make it work. In the meantime, a QA tester concentrates on how to make it crash. This requires a completely different mindset and skillset than those a development has. 

Developers can sometimes be extremely proud of their code, just like parents can be proud of their child. Having someone else tell you your child has an issue and needs to change is sometimes a lot easier than admitting it yourself. Plus, when you know exactly how to make everything work, you’ll typically follow the path of making it work.

Usually, developers test their code on a unit testing level to ensure that their code is relatively functional. To discover unsaid assumptions in the requirement, the best method is to let someone else (not the developer) read them and check the implementation – this is what QA engineers are for.

If you want to ascertain the quality of your software, you need to make sure that you have three fundamental things in the process.

  • Clear defined value proposition, goals, and plan
  • The right people testing your software
  • Effective software QA process

Our testing services are designed to provide the right people and the right process. It will help you improve governance and systems quality, reduce risk and delivery costs to your organization.

QA Automation by Software Test Engineers

Software QA is inherently a people-centered activity. Even though, in certain circumstances, test automation can take you a long way, in most cases, the effectiveness of your software testing will be largely determined by people on your team. 

Software testing experts, Test Engineers, are very different and much more effective than ordinary “testers”. Test Engineers can engineer a specific approach to your software QA needs. They can explain “what”, “why”, and “how” to do it. Our QA automation engineers have 15+ years of experience in software development quality assurance. They design software testing solutions that help you achieve your business goals. 

Experienced Test Engineers will reduce not only the number of defects in production but also defects coded. They’ll thoroughly review requirements and source code, map out the changes the developers should make, then discuss their plans with the developers to ensure that all the scenarios are covered before a line of code is written. Finally, they’ll make sure that the code is of the highest quality.

QA Automation as a Service

Software QA processes are critical for producing high-quality software as quickly as possible. We have extensive and significant experience in designing and implementing test governance and management approaches which we gained working on some of the most complex and large-scale projects. 

The best process is one that is tight enough to produce the desired outcomes without deviation, light enough to be easily used by the people doing the job, flexible enough to adapt to changes in the business or technical environment.

Continuous testing is the backbone of the modern development process. It implies the execution of automated tests throughout the delivery pipeline. It also involves running risk-based, automated regression tests prior to each deployment within the pipeline, including post-production health checks. Most companies, nowadays, understand the time and cost benefits of running automated test scripts continuously and implementing automated feedback loops.

We’re ready to deliver a customized test automation solution that meets your needs, whether it’s a simple one-time solution or a comprehensive one that includes implementing automation throughout the DevOps continuous integration pipeline or developing in-sprint automation for Agile teams. We also develop project-specific solutions, including automated regression suites. Our workflow is highly demand-driven and encompasses large-scale system testing as needed.
