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.
You want to maximize efficiency within your development cycle so that your team produces quality product releases. You also need to maximize efficiency in order to stay competitive within your industry and to increase ROI month after month, year upon year.
Many businesses have seen instant advantages after implementing automated testing into their development cycle. But what is automation QA testing? And what types of tests can be automated?
Healthcare applications must process a huge number of transactions and a massive amount of patient data each day. To ensure that all this data is handled appropriately over time, it is integral that test cases for the healthcare application apply data sets of varying complexity.
To save time and resources, consider implementing test automation where possible. But what is test automation? And what benefits of automation in healthcare can your team expect?
Most healthcare enterprise applications are loaded with critical data related to patients and the various organizations they serve. This can include health records, payment information, account details, and identity details. Due to the incredible sensitivity of this data, thorough software security testing is a necessity for healthcare applications so that critical information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
By “wrong hands,” we mean criminals in the identity theft business, hackers skilled in malware and phishing schemes, and cyber-attackers aiming to hold critical files or your entire system hostage by ransomware.
The COVID-19 pandemic rushed millions of employees into remote work. In a world where most businesses require full-time office attendance, companies were pushed to quickly adjust - and accept - the new virtual workspace. Even as stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders are lifted, hundreds of businesses have decided to make (or are in the process of making) remote work permanent for all employees.
In 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) defined standards for safeguarding the sensitive, confidential data of all patients. The act requires health insurance providers to enforce strict privacy and security rules, each designed to protect the patient and all electronically protected health information, known as ePHI.
Congratulations on purchasing your LMS! Now comes your next challenge: implementing this learning management system into your organization.
It’s true that integrating your new system with your other technologies is a critical process. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be a daunting experience. In fact, you can expect impressive results when you have the right team and detailed strategy in place.
QA test execution can only be as strong as the strategy you have in place. One of the best QA practices we’ve noticed across many software companies actually happens before any testing begins. By implementing a strong plan with thorough processes, every member on your QA team knows what to deliver, when to deliver it by and why it's important.
But how do you know if your strategy is sound?
Since the advent of the Agile method more than a decade ago, many have come to assume that the advantages of iterative development are available only through face-to-face conversation within the same room.
During that time, offshore QA testing has matured to offer the expertise, resource savings and flexibility that make it a foundation of modern software development best practices.
