Setting out on delivering this brand promise to the market whilst delivering it within a set budget is excruciatingly difficult and the time where development and immediate unqualified implementation is quickly waning with so many end users having under delivered, overpromised projects. Quality Assurance is the single thread that can connect these two perspectives together engaging the development team to align with that dream client experience whilst supporting internal delivery ensuring that developer over-run costs are managed.


Importantly, there are common perceptions that any spend in quality diminishes returns on profitability however this notion needs to be strongly challenged and business longevity should always be held above single project commitments. Having a sustainable replication of business process will significantly improve business churn. The global industry trends are clear that end user budgets are only expanding as digitisation trends move from a ‘nice to have’ to business-critical revenue streams – this trend highlights that those who deliver consistently on their brand promise and client experience will survive competition and lead the market.


 
The Method Behind Our Quality

The Method Behind Our Quality

 
Outsource vs insource

This is the single most common question in the industry now when it comes to quality. When considering a development house, core business is essential. Quality sits outside of most software houses capability but squarely within business-critical function justifying outsourcing but requiring partnership to meet these needs. Outsourcing is justified by the following concepts:


The quality industry is changing at an increasingly rapid rate with

more tools, frameworks and technologies are clear that a wide birth of experience and exposure is critical to ensure that implementation of the current trends is accessed. Unless you are a large enough business that can afford to have a significant team to keep on top of these global trends – you will need a committed partner to translate the quality world and weave it into your business process.


Skills and training required for quality are differentiated enough to

require reliance on an independent team that pushes on ensuring only the highest quality in skills are represented within your business.


Tools are critical resources to ensure that the results of quality are

timeously and effectively delivered back into the process. Having the right tool at the right time with someone skilled, trained and experienced to feedback information not results is essential. This adds value rather than just another unimplemented checklist into your business ensuring that every cent of quality spend is appropriately actioned and the maximum value created.


 
Partnership vs ‘Test Dummy’

Partnership vs Test Dummy

Many quality houses offer rate cards and deliver test results required.


However, when we look at global trends, the final user experience is critical. This user experience is influenced in the process from development through to final product. If quality is not an integral consideration at every step by the time you come to testing, correcting any action from there will take considerable time and diminish from the returns of the business. Partnering with a solutions provider that can weave the fundamentals of quality at every decision is critical so that the process can be consistently tailored for improvement delivering on the best end user experience.
