Whether you already have an established QA partner or are in search of a new partner, there are several characteristics that should define your offshore QA team.
Every successful software development team experiences growing pains once the technical needs of its projects exceed the expertise and basic workloads of its core staff. When this happens, it is tough to know where to turn for help without adding significant additional costs. One well-established approach to getting more for less is offshore software testing, with its promise of lower labor costs and reputation for quality.
Over the past few years, a growing number of healthcare providers have started using websites and mobile applications to collaborate efficiently with partners and patient support services and communicate more effectively with patients in a timely manner. APIs allow healthcare companies to do all this.
There’s no doubt that automation testing is the quickest and most cost-effective method of QA testing. However, it cannot do everything, since some limitations of automation testing are built into the system and must be balanced against manual testing, while some are the result of inexact pre-programming, such as a failure to develop effective automation test hooks.
Let's look at some of the drawbacks of automation testing:
Think of QA onboarding like adding a new employee to your team. The sooner they can learn about your company - from your product and work culture to existing processes and project requirements - the sooner they can provide the deliverables you need.
Fortunately, many QA vendors have been in the industry for decades and can get up to speed quickly. That being said, there are specific onboarding procedures expected from you so that your offshore QA testing team can start testing sooner and produce expected testing results faster.
A healthy QA culture results in strong, confident teams. And with a powerful team in place, you can produce exceptional products and achieve greater success when going to the market. While the task of building great culture belongs to the QA Team Manager, it’s up to each member of your software QA team to participate and contribute towards a healthy workplace culture.
