QA Outsourcing and the Ideal Development Process
Why is it sensible to outsource software testing? Look for the answer to this question below.
All skilled software & web developers clearly realize that QA testing is strategically important. But why is it often such negligence towards this process?
As for large companies, they are aware of the importance of software testing that is why it is a no-brainer for them. However, highly-specialized centers have to turn to offshore testing centres for the help.
Unfortunately, there are more and more offshore testing centres located in India, Indonesia, China and other Asian countries. But, if you consider time zone difference it stands to reason. If a company is able to get the results at night it involves enhancement of their development process.
If an internal software testing team works for you, it will be impossible to always change their schedule, because no programmer is able to know precisely when development of interactive product or a peculiar feature will be complete.
There are many challenges your company may face working in the industry with tight deadlines and fixed price. For that reason QA testing is often accomplished by any member of the staff except for qualified testers. But in fact, software testing services are to be delivered by highly experienced testing specialists and the process itself should occupy up to 33% of the hours for a project.
Let us suppose that it is easier to run testing of projects designed for a platform with clear guidelines for QA testing (the hardware manufacturer but not the Internet took care to supply the manual with its product). After all, in most cases, companies encounter the problems when it is comes to QA testing.
And it is a pity that an impatient client or a watchful boss is only concerned about the process’s cost.
Many interactive development companies do care about nothing but wanted functionality of their product as well as availability of the defects hindering experience of the user.
So it is important to have the work done by a quality assurance company which goal is to meet the specifications and the client’s business requirements.
