Test Automation, QA Tools | By Timothy Joseph | October 10, 2019

The vastness of the internet rests on the myriad of individual web applications that make up its practically endless network. The ease of access a user experiences and expects belies the multipoint complexity of the underlying web server, application server and database.

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.

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.

QASource’s Favorite Metrics for QA Services

What happens when you can’t accurately measure the cost, effectiveness, and progress of a software testing project? A lot of less-than-ideal things. Projects can balloon in cost, creep in scope, fall in quality, or run on for what seems like forever. Without defined metrics attached to each QA project, they can get out of control -- and this scenario is a nightmare for both the product company and their team and the testing provider and their engineers.

How to Effectively Transfer Knowledge When Outsourcing QA

One of the key challenges of working with an outsourced QA partner is aligning a new, offshore team with your product, procedures, and larger business objectives. Without the proper transfer of knowledge from the customer to the offshore team, engineers will be testing blindly. This leads to process slow-downs, inflated project budgets, and even lost contracts.
