04 Jun 2018How Outsourcing QA Can Be a Game-Changer for Your Business
Software testing from a business perspective can be a challenging task unless it is supported by the right resources. For software to be failsafe, QA or software testing is important, and hence, outsourcing this task to a specialist company eases the burden to a great extent. Earlier, outsourcing was just a technique used to cut down costs. However, in recent times, it has become an effective strategy for achieving better business objectives.
Assigning the task of Quality Assurance to a specialist QA and software testing company having relevant experience in this domain accelerates the entire Software Development process, ensuring productivity, objectivity, and efficiency. Moreover, by outsourcing, companies can massively reduce their QA costs.
Quality and productivity:
For an unbiased evaluation of the software, it is essential that businesses assign the development and testing work to different teams. A single team for both development and testing will generate the lack of objectivity. Moreover, by doing so, companies put themselves at risk of not being able to find errors in the software. Having two different teams for both roles will ensure unbiased testing. Therefore, outsourcing QA and software testing to a specialist company which has expertise in testing software/ applications will be the best decision.
Security of code:
By outsourcing the QA process, companies will have utmost security as they do not have to share the details of the code with their outsourcing partners. In fact, software testing companies prefer to be compliant with the latest regulations and international standards like ISO and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Also, by outsourcing Quality Assurance, enterprises can be unperturbed about breach of Intellectual Property (IP) Rights.
Early identification of risks:
Quality Assurance is mostly ignored by companies, as they are unaware of its crucial role in Software Development. As a matter of fact, QA is essential for delivering an excellent piece of software. Partnering with an outsource QA team will keep companies in a safer zone, as well as allow them to detect bugs early on in the process. As the cost of defects increases with the development of the project, the QA process must be agile and should start with the development process itself.
Faster testing results:
By outsourcing the QA process, the turnaround time of defect detection also decreases, making the process faster and effective. There are various models followed by the testing companies, and Follow the Sun is the most effective and efficient out of these. In this model, if the client is in some other time zone, the right QA team makes sure the time zone difference does not hamper the efficiency of the process, and the testing results are thus delivered overnight.
Understanding of the modern QA trends:
Specialized QA companies are evolving rapidly and are always updated with the latest quality assurance trends. Associating with an experienced QA team can help companies to identify the best tools and technology for testing their application.
Automation in QA:
With the latest advances in technology and automation, QA has also become automated. A competent team of testing specialists can have a better understanding of tools used in the process. Companies find it hard to use the advanced automated QA techniques in order to test their applications. Therefore, outsourcing QA to a company that holds hands-on experience in automated testing and is using the most recent methodologies can be the best option.
