Software Quality Assurance Dedicated Software Testing Company

It’s easy and somewhat common to think that almost any technical services company could provide software quality assurance- even something as simple as software regression testing from a set of test cases and a test plan that is already written. The test cases just need to be run, right? We think there is a difference in a company that ONLY provides software testing and the other companies that claim to be a software testing company and provide a host of other technical services.

We believe that the primary difference is our people and our talent. Since we ONLY provide software testing, we attract and screen for the very best software testing talent – and there is a difference between a software test engineer working for a software testing company and a general software engineer who works for a company with a broad service offering.

For an example using software regression testing – a typical tester in a broad technical services company will run the test cases and report the defects – exactly as you’ve asked. A test engineer working at TESTCo performing software regression testing will also run those test case according to the test plan AND will offer just a bit more.

See if these might be valuable to you – the count and percentage of test cases run, passed, blocked and with defects; notes in the test cases where additional data sets might be valuable for boundary testing; timings on test case execution so you can estimate more accurately next time; daily status and production reports that provide real time adjustment of our software regression testing process to your changing needs; a dedicated Software Quality Assurance Manager who is responsible for making sure that the test engineer performing the software regression testing has everything they need to deliver according to exactly what you need.

We think there is a difference between a dedicated software testing company and our competitors who offer a broad range of technical services, including software quality assurance. Contact us for further discussion.

Software QA Testing Second Aspect Software Quality Assurance

Software QA Testing is, generally speaking, the process of assuring the quality of a software or web application release. The best and easiest measure of software quality is the number of defects still open or unfixed by category of severity. An additional measure of software quality assurance is test case coverage. Test case coverage can be very complex and difficult to determine but a simplified measure can provide a lot of benefit without simplifying it to the point of incorrectness.

Determining Coverage Within a Software QA Testing Process

The easiest method for determining test case coverage within a software QA testing process is to index the test cases into a functional map to determine the amount of the application where a test case has been written and then compare that functional map to the most recent run of test cases to determine A – the percentage of the application covered by a test case and then B – the percentage of test cases most recently run.

Software QA Testing Goals

The goal of Software QA Testing is to provide a measure of quality, in terms of business risk, so that the decision makers can determine whether or not a current release meets their business goals.
