In an ideal world, software developers would have an endless timeframe to create solutions, ensuring everything is as perfect as possible. However, this can take a long time, and in this highly competitive field and it is the solutions that hit the market first while remaining reliable, secure, and efficient that succeed.
That is why Quality Assurance (QA) is crucial when it comes to a successful software launch. What exactly is QA, though, and how can it help? We thought we would take a closer look.
What is Quality Assurance?
The QA team should be involved with software development from the very start of the project. It is their job to think outside the box and consider how users will be interacting with the software, identifying potential bugs and errors.
It is their responsibility to create the entire test plan, and the more integrated they are within the project, the smoother the process will be.
How does this impact the software project launch?
You only get one opportunity to create a first impression, and experiencing issues upon launching can destroy your reputation. A Quality Assurance team effectively acts like a customer throughout the entire project, helping to ensure:
– The overall quality of the product
– There are no problems or bugs
– Users are able to get the very best experience possible.
In turn, this will help to not only protect your reputation but also ensure you do not need to face costly changes further down the line.
