Integrate Nearshore Software Development and Testing with an Agile Approach

Agile QA, Nearshore QA | By Timothy Joseph | August 22, 2019

Every software development conversation you begin should end with a word on QA testing. The two have become inseparable within the modern SDLC. They are the twin forces that give the Agile approach to software development the strength to dominate product delivery in the digital age.

Development innovation is strengthened by continual testing. QA becomes more effective when deployed earlier and more often.

AI Testing Tools That Drive Automation

Test Automation, AI testing | By Timothy Joseph | August 20, 2019

The greatest asset an expert QA tester possesses is their experience. Years of familiarity with specific domains gives them the ability to predict problems before they arise and implement solutions inexperienced minds would not pursue.

Artificial intelligence can capture that experience and learn from it. AI testing tools of the future will act with the experience of not just one individual but an entire team of expert QA testers.

Reliable Automated Solutions for POS Testing

There was a time when we lined up on a Friday to draw enough cash from over the bank counter to see us through until Monday. Now it is quite possible to go entire weeks without using cash at all.

The digital transformation of business has raised consumer expectations such that they expect to be able to pay for everything—from pizzas to plane tickets—without having to open their wallets. The demand for truly secure, effortless, seamless, faultless digital transactions puts pressure on developers to produce perfect POS software.

12 Reasons Your Engineering Team Adopts Open Source Tools

We are in an open-source revolution, an era where engineers and developers around the globe can collaborate and invest their time and money with the goal of producing a reliable product – a software that would further push the world toward digital innovation. Because of this common end goal, open source tools are gaining popularity in developer communities and more are turning toward adopting open source tools to build their product.

Designing Your Software Quality Control Plan to Be Set Up for Success

As developers, you are not judged solely on your end product. Every step along the way to delivery is monitored and measured against software quality control standards. All your engineering processes, methods, activities and work items are subject to scrutiny. In today’s environment, you can get it wrong even though you, ultimately, got it right.

In the realm of quality assurance, the expectations are that we understand both the need for and the burden of meeting such high software quality control standards. We also know that the way you design your software quality control plan is critical to your professional success.

8 Ways to Optimize Your Automation Test Coverage

There is a better way to test.

Every step of your software testing process contains hidden efficiencies that can help you achieve even better results, faster. Some are the result of planning, some stem from test design and some you realize through better test execution.

All improvements come with experience. When you have automated more than a million test cases, you learn what works and what does not. More than that, you learn what works best.

What Even the Best Open-Source Test Management Tools Miss

Free often comes at a cost. In terms of open-source test management tools, that cost is the quality limitation placed on your QA. Even the savings you seek by choosing a free test management source disappear if a critical bug is missed, your launch date is delayed or you are forced to make expensive fixes later in production.

While the well-established open-source test management tools have survived a decade or more in the software testing industry, their role has been greatly reduced. The simple irony is, it is hard to achieve maximum QA value with a free product.

Software testing best practices are considered industry constants wherever the constraints of time, quality and resources apply. They hold up regardless of the actual values assigned to each of those boundaries.

Wasted time will delay release cycles regardless of the SDLC timeline.

Compromised quality affects users regardless of your company’s reputation.

Wasted resources mean reduced efficiency regardless of budget.
