The world has hugely changed since the beginning of history. We evolutionized as a result of nature failures and mistakes, such as cataclysms, genetic mutations, natural selection. Well, mistakes made us who we are. These are mistakes that make us evolutionize, make progress in everything we do, especially in a tech field. But mistakes can also bring negative effects if they remain unaddressed. The fact is that we, humans, still keep being imperfect creatures and continue creating software products with bugs, no matter what time limits we have.
And it’s us, software testing professionals and QA specialists, who turn error-full software into ready to work, bug-free products which fill the needs of an end user and bring profit and revenue to their owner.
Serving as a bridge between users and development team of a product, the ultimate is to troubleshoot all the issues and bugs as well as control the quality of a resulted product. On the way to the ultimate goal of testing using manual and automated means, QA specialists are aimed to complete different objectives.
When QA engineers test a product, they are always in customer`s shoes. QA team tests if the design is aligned correctly, checks whether the interface is intuitive, and makes sure the functionality is flawless. Believe it or not, but customers will judge your business by the way it is presented online. Thorough testing delivers superior quality; that brings customers` loyalty and builds a strong brand image. Besides, slow and glitchy software impedes user experience. User-acceptance testing is crucial for a pre-launch phase. It ensures the system is available for correct use, checks if software supports user scenarios and overall product functionality. Such approach prevents 95% of issues clients would detect after the release. When you have your product scrupulously tested, users are more likely to recommend it to others.
In 2008, The System Sciences Institute at IBM published a report analyzing the ways to minimize web defects and lower development wastes. To fix a bug in the post-release stage costs 4-5 times higher than to eliminate defects during the design phase, according to IBM. In other words, as a bug makes its full cycle from the design to post-release stage, it gets more and more expensive. Therefore, quick error detection performed by a software testing company saves time and money after deploy.
Well, making mistakes is in our DNA code. It’s ok if your product suffers from bugs or malfunctions. But, keep in mind that the beauty of the mistake you make is in its early detection and elimination. QA Madness team provides any type of a full-lifecycle software testing solutions. It’s our goal to find them for you as early as possible.
