Quality Assurance
31 October 2022

Quality Assurance (QA) is a critical component of the software development life cycle (SDLC). The need to eliminate the risk from minor bugs to major security vulnerabilities is undeniable, but there’s mounting pressure on companies to deliver new applications faster than ever and to release more frequent updates to keep up with customer demand and new feature sets.

Our Tangerine Team of QA engineers rigorously test every piece of application code before it reaches the end user and is generally released onto the market. digitify uses Quality Assurance automated testing to speed up workflows and increase the efficiency of the quality assurance process, saving both our customers’ time and money.

Quality Assurance automation not only handles many of the time-consuming manual processes carried out by human testers but performs more advanced tests that aren’t possible to do by hand. This is especially useful for those who practice continuous integration (CI) and delivery, where software is developed, tested, and deployed multiple times per day, rather than in stages, as is common in more traditional development models.

Automated Quality Assurance testing relies on specialised tools to execute test cases and generate results, whereas manual testers follow a written test plan and report the defects to developers. Manual testing is ideal for evaluating the user experience (UX), and the look and feel of an application and interface, which is best done by a human. This ensures efficient and prompt software quality assurance for the customers.

Benefits of our QA Automation:

  • Reduced Business Expenses: Reduces the effort required to run tests and analyse the outputs by up to 90%, making the testing process efficient.
  • Faster Time To Market: Cut down the regression testing cycle time by up to 80% helping you achieve quicker releases with higher frequency.
  • High App Quality and Performance: Enhance software quality, as it removes the possible human risk during QA process. Especially for complex scenarios, it makes sense to use test automation to avoid mistakes.
  • Productivity: Optimise resource usage by reducing the time required to execute a test, as automated tests can run repeatedly on their own.
  • Usability: Allow testers to reuse a library of test assets that can be quickly executed.
  • Coverage: Automation allows you to spend time writing new tests and adding them to your automated test suite. This increases the test coverage for your product, so more features are properly tested resulting in a higher-quality application.
  • Multiple releases per day: Releases up to several times a day, automation helps us to test end-to-end applications every time and checks if there is any ripple effect.
  • Multi-Platform Testing: Test across different Operating Systems, devices, and browsers to ensure smooth operation for all end users.
  • Improved Accuracy: Even the best testing engineer can make mistakes during manual testing. Automation can execute tests with 100 percent accuracy as they produce the same result every time you run them.
  • Reusability of Test Suite: We can reuse our test with multiple sets of test data, by doing this we can target all the possible scenarios.
  • Better Insights: Automated testing provides better insights than manual testing when some tests fail. The automated solution tells about database tables and API results too. This helps developers determine what’s gone wrong.
  • Less Stress and dependency on Manual QA Team: Implementing an automated testing strategy means there is less dependency on manual resources to perform the same task again and again.
  • Meeting the Tight Deadlines: Generally, testing and debugging takes 50% of the development time. Automation can speed up the process significantly to meet tight deadlines.
