Effective Software Quality Assurance

For software to have high quality standards it must be verified by testers who not only wait for the final phases to start testing it but instead, the whole development process should be monitored so that each milestone passes through stringent checks. With proper Software Quality Assurance, most defects that are present in all the new software programs that a company develops will be identified and measures will be taken to fix them. A company may choose to have its own QA team or still go for the convenient option of outsourcing the quality assurance jobs to a company that specializes in that.

Reasons why some companies do not do the Quality Assurance checks on their own

Quality assurance is a time consuming process. It needs someone to be engrossed in every stage of the software development cycle and this is not every company’s cup of tea. Some companies do not have the resources to keep their personnel effectively utilized at certain stages.  Some stages have resource requirements that are too high to meet the wage structure and sometimes the workers are almost idle but still on the payroll. To weed out such financial quagmires, the company would rather let another expert carry out the jobs with their own resources and these can offer competitive pricing for that.

Testing from the early stages allows upfront testing of code

If a developer waits for the software to be “complete’ before they start testing, they risk wasting a lot of resources because if there is a change that needs to be carried out on a component that was programmed earlier on during the development life cycle, this may need to have the later stage developments edited to suit the new changes. This will be frustrating and time consuming for everyone involved. The best practices show that software testing methodologies that are up to speed need proper training and a better understanding on what happens at each stage of coding. White box testing, a kind of testing that looks at the internal structure of the software instead of the end result or client side testing is a more effective and safer technique of testing. This also reduces the chances of software only malfunctioning on certain operating systems and working perfectly on other systems.

It is possible to outsource only a segment of the whole cycle while at the same time, someone may find it fit to outsource the complete quality assurance function. An organization can launch its software product faster if there is a skilled person doing the testing and approving certain milestones instead of a company fumbling with one part of the cycle. The RT Software Group has a highly skilled and dedicated team to ensure that the testing phases are complete on time so that the client side experience does not suffer a compromise. The RT Software Group has deep knowledge and resources needed to oversee the QA functions needed and proper documentation of what needs to be changed
