Imagine using shared resources that are allocated dynamically, create flexible testing environments, and that simulate user scenarios and real-world traffic - that’s just some of the benefits of cloud testing.
The breadth of expert testing required to bring a healthcare app to market can be overwhelming. The final product has to be robust enough to handle large flows of electronic health information across intricate interoperable networks while conforming to high transport, terminology and security standards. As quickly as possible.
On top of all that, a single flaw within this heavily regulated industry can render the product useless and your reputation as a developer seriously damaged.
Quality is the true measure of product success. Poor user experience or application performance negates any advantages you achieve in delivery speed or production cost. Put simply, if it does not work, it is not worth producing.
It is, therefore, critical to our product success that we can accurately measure and track test results to ensure our testing is delivering against our business goals. Understanding software quality metrics, especially in automated testing, helps us identify what is working well and what needs improvement.
There is a threefold way to improve the value of your QA investment. Stacked one atop the other, these three elements combine to make your software testing faster, better, and more cost effective.
The strategy looks like this:
- Taking advantage of test automation saves you time.
- Outsourcing that test automation to a QA expert increases your test coverage and improves the quality of your product.
- Engaging a QA expert located offshore dramatically reduces your resource cost.
The best QA designers approach every project with two things: an extensive toolkit and an open mind. They know that there is no single automated test system that can be applied to every situation. Every development environment is different, as is every domain and application.
The designer needs an extensive kit of technologies, tools, languages, and framework architectures to ensure they can build a successful system. They need the open mind to know which combination of those resources will work best under each new project specification.
Software development is a challenge that can be thrilling and frustrating at the same time. Sometimes it feels like a series of barriers stand between you and your product’s release. While finding errors in your software can feel demoralizing, it is really a good thing. If you can find bugs and errors before your product is released to the public, you can fix them. If your software is full of errors when it is released, the public may think you have released it prematurely. And all the patches in the world cannot help a company fix a bad reputation.
