BairesDev Best Practices

Quality Assurance is a fundamental component of successful software development and delivery. While there are many approaches towards achieving this goal, these are the Best Practices that we follow and recommend at BairesDev and have proven to be successful across many customer engagements. Our Quality Assurance Circle is the center of excellence that outlines and maintains these standards and ensures that knowledge and practices are shared across our organization. 

Define a Test Strategy

To cover the test rules including the project’s start/end objectives, assumptions, etc., and a process description to set up valid tests including entry/exit criteria, test case creation, specific tasks, scheduling, data strategy, among others:

  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Follow an Approach or Process
    Like Domain-Driven Design (DDD), Behavior-Driven Development (BDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD) wherever possible and appropriate so that quality flows from the design, user value is clear, and testing is central to the implementation.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Test Non-Functional Requirements
    Like security, scalability, resilience, and availability. We work with teams to determine Service Level Objectives (SLOs) and design and implement Service Level Indicators (SLIs).

Success Stories

What is the Role of Quality Assurance?

Many years ago, quality used to be a word strictly associated with the manufacturing industry. That’s where the term Quality Control came from—the goal was to identify and reject defective products at the assembly plant before they reached the consumer. Quality Assurance, on the other hand, has a completely different approach: it focuses on prevention and improving the quality of software products from the early stages of the development process. 

Software QA outsourcing is all about creating the best possible product for your customers.

QA services give your company full control over all quality aspects from a software application. This makes it easier to evaluate the product’s compliance with the original requirements as the project progresses and provides valuable insights into end-user impressions of the product.

In essence, the role of a software QA company is pretty simple: to push the limits of an application in various directions and provide businesses with valuable insights that lead to higher-quality products. In other words, outsourced QA testing services create the best possible product for your customers.

This is done through meticulous and creative processes that check multiple times for any errors, weaknesses, and points of failure. A great software QA tester will continuously put the product through its paces to reveal hidden data regarding its performance and the experience it offers. This generates actionable insights for businesses to understand and improve their products.

Outsourcing QA services is the most efficient way to access world-class testing services provided by the best QA software engineers available.  In the current market, companies often outsource quality assurance to reduce labor costs, boost business performance, and gain immediate access to expert staff.

Other Software Testing Methodologies

  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Unit Testing
    Unit testing refers to developer level testing and it occurs prior to further processes that are carried out by other testing teams. It is an essential step as it ensures code functionality. It can be carried out manually, but automating this process provides a more efficient environment.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Integration Testing
    Units have to be tested integrating them into larger modules and groups that carry out designated tasks, making sure they do so accordingly. These tests are often performed in user scenarios, and they can be done by both developers and independent testers.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    System Testing

    Acceptance Testing
    This is the last stage of functional testing that double checks that the final product is in accordance with pre-established criteria and client expectations. Top software QA testers play a major role at this stage, but it is also crucial to involve the end user in order to obtain valuable feedback which is critical to delivering an exceptional final product.

The Differences Between Software Testing & QA Services

Quality Assurance is comprised of a series of activities and methods implemented throughout the entire product life cycle to assure utmost efficiency of the development process. The software is developed according to defined specifications. In other words, it is a thorough, systematic, and necessary approach to testing that focuses on preventing bugs and looking after the overall final product quality so that it meets customer expectations.

On the other hand, Software Testing involves different processes to identify quality, security, and adequate system operation. These checkups assure software functionality and allow you to fix any potential issues. QA engineers define testing protocols and software testers adhere to them, searching for issues before the product is released to market.

Frequently Asked Questions about QA Services

  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    What are QA services?
    Quality assurance (QA) services encompass the processes and practices to ensure that products being developed reach an established quality threshold. The main goal of QA services is to increase the efficiency of development processes by constantly improving on them.

    For any software development company, QA services mainly mean using extensive software testing to ensure that applications are as free as possible from bugs and vulnerabilities. It’s important to note, though, that QA services aren’t just about bug fixing – they also contemplate the implementation of best coding practices that produce less bugs in the first place.

    Thus, QA services also analyze the development process as a whole and in detail to find opportunities for improvement.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    What is QA functional testing?
    Functional testing refers to the group of tests conducted to check whether the application meets all the requirements as specified by the product owner. Functional testing uses black-box testing techniques, meaning that the tester is only concerned with seeing if the application works as intended without caring about the internal system logic.

    The objective of functional testing is almost always getting a bug-free application with a good user interface. That’s why this type of testing includes (but is not limited to) checking data input, expected output, user interface performance, and overall stability, among others.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    What are the Types of Functional Testing?
    Functional testing can be divided into specific tests, each of which covers a specific portion of the application. Those tests include:

    • Unit Testing. Engineers test the components of the application and each unit is individually tested.

    • Smoke Testing. Includes tests that verify whether the critical functionality of the application is working fine.

    • Sanity Testing. Developers use this test when they receive a build with minor modifications to see if those small changes have caused new bugs or not. It often focuses on specific functionalities.

    • Integration Testing. This test is about checking how the individual components perform when interacting with one another. Integration tests are usually automated.

    • Regression Testing. Analyzes all functionalities of the application after changes in code, bug fixes, new features, and updates. It’s more comprehensive and in-depth than sanity testing. • User Acceptance Testing. Last phase of the software testing process, the UAT is performed by the application users to make sure that it can handle real-life scenarios and that it meets all requirements.
  • What is a QA Assessment?
    A QA assessment is an expert evaluation of application lifecycle practices from a QA and Testing standpoint. Expert QA engineers analyze the process to identify weaknesses and opportunities for improvement. The main objective of a QA assessment is to suggest enhancements that improve the development process’ efficiency while ensuring continuous delivery of quality products.

    A normal QA assessment includes some of the following:

    • Business analysis
    • Architecture analysis
    • Development Lifecycle evaluation
    • Test processes evaluation
    • Metrics evaluation
    • Risk assessment

    The end result of a QA assessment is a detailed report with recommendations for improving the overall development process along with a proposal for a successful implementation of those suggestions.

    A QA assessment is a recommended practice for companies struggling with their development processes, that aren’t capable of building quality products, or that are failing to meet development deadlines.
  • What is a Functional Testing Example?
    Functional testing covers many types of tests but its overall goal is to ensure that the application’s functionality meets the business requirements established at the beginning of the project. To do so, functional testing usually takes two different routes: positive testing and negative testing.

    For example, functional testing of a spreadsheet application will involve checking all of its functions, including creating and saving new sheets, opening and editing new ones, using different formulas and formats, exporting to new file formats, and printing, among other things.

    The positive functional testing of that application involves using the expected inputs to check whether the application provides the expected outputs. In the example, this might mean testing if the spreadsheet program is capable of exporting an existing sheet to a new format and into a specified location.

    The negative functional testing means disrupting the inputs to see how the application reacts. Following the exporting example, the testing engineers might try to save the exported sheet to an unavailable location to see if the program handles the disruption correctly.
  • Who Performs Functional Testing?
    Functional testing is usually performed by QA engineers and testers that work alongside the development team throughout the project’s progress. It can be a single person that’s responsible for the functional tests and their application. However, the most appropriate approach to functional testing is to make software engineers take part in functional testing as well.By doing that, the QA engineer isn’t the only point of failure of the team when it comes to QA, as the entire team takes part in functional testing.

    Additionally, it’s important for QA teams to get serious about test automation. This minimizes the amount of manual testing while covering as much in unit and integration testing as possible. This expedites the work while providing reliable results and, ultimately, increasing the product’s end quality.
