How Business Can Avoid Risk Impact In Quality Assurance Delivery?

Though you have spent innumerable hours in the development of a one-of-a-kind product that would hit millions of download rates in the App and Play store still your product isn’t successful in the market.

Why? What’s the root cause?

A lot of research has been conducted to identify the root cause of software failures. And, one of the main reasons concluded behind this is the lack of proper software testing services during the development process. Though you have a brilliant app idea, without proper QA, your whole product can fail which can damage your brand and cost your customers.

Discovering problems in the application after its release is risky but so is launching your product late in the market with the updates. Though quality  v/s speed is equally important but so is having the right resources on board.

As a start-up owner, how do you make sure that you have the right tools and resources on-hand and you’re not overspending on resources?

This article focuses on project risks in software testing that risks QA delivery and how they can be avoided to ensure high-performing and offbeat products on road.

What exactly is risk-based testing?

Risk-based testing is designing the execution scenarios in a way that top-line business risks that have a negative impact on the business which can be easily identified by the customers are concealed in their product or feature early in the development lifecycle and are mitigated properly by implementing mitigation measures. In simple ways,

Avoid Bugs being detected out of nowhere

It’s quite certain that you would not like to hear about your app bugs, especially from your customers. Apart from the embarrassment you’d feel, it is quite obvious that if one person has found fault in the application, the other would find another. Consumers are quite tech-savvy where they have multiple communication modes on fingertips.

If it’s not your next seat colleague who would bring a problem to you, you might hear about your app issues on a Twitter tweet or either a review in the app store – Publicly, visible to millions; and the risk escalates. If your bug is harmful enough to the user experience, you won’t just lose your existing user but also new acquisitions.

Bug hunting is not easier said than done. It requires adequate time, skill, tools, and resources to identify and mitigate the failures and risks. If you are unable to justify your QA resources, it is essential to prioritize such test cases to avoid high-impact bugs early.

How to maintain the highest standard of quality and avoid risks in QA delivery?

How to maintain the highest standard of quality and avoid risks in QA delivery?

1. Choose your product release criteria carefully

Being a developer, it’s impossible to test every feature of your product in each release and fortunately, you don’t need to do that. You can still be confident in your approved product if you deliberately focus on code areas where major changes were made. Before releasing the product, understand which part of the product will be in sync with the updated code and use that information to prioritize testing efforts. In short, you need to base your release criteria on newly added code instead of repeating old code testing.

2. Prioritize bug fixing based on its usage

Well, fixing bugs is an integral part of any newer release, but which bugs should we focus on? The answer lies in analyzing usage data. The Google Analytics tools can help you to identify how end users interact with your product.
E.g. if one feature of your app is rarely interacted with by the user, a bug found in that code will shift to the lower priority as compared to the registration process code.

3. Make sure to stay close to the development environment

Every QA might have passed through this situation where the developer comments “but it works on my machine seamlessly.” So, how would you avoid such a situation?

Make sure that your QA and development teams work simultaneously in the same environment. So, as the build moves with the development pipeline, the code is being tested by the QA under the production condition. In that way, the staging environment is built by the customers’ production environment.

4. Automate the things that can be automated

In the entire development process, you can automate the repetitive tests and thus saves time and resources. This doesn’t mean that you’ve to splurge huge money in automating every single test. Automating everything can result in overspending too much time in building scripts, tests, and monitoring cases. Though hiring Quality Assurance can save time and speeds the launch-to-market time, hire QA testing company India with in-depth technicality and experience would do wonders since they are one who would be reliable to bring the best product to the market.

5. Integrate more

The majority of the companies have a mindset of building a module/app first with testing being the next step but that’s incorrect. As a project manager, make sure to keep the development and Quality Assurance team in the loop in the development process. The closer they will work together and share feedback, the quicker you can iterate and adjust. Hiring QA team India and involving them in multiple stages of production means that you will be well-acknowledged with an important feedback loop happening much faster.

6. Last but not least: Make QA a priority!

Yes! Quality assurance is one of the most unnoticed segments that can make or break your app. Though it might sound crazy majority company sees QA as a team that comes at the end of the development phase to explain what’s broken and what needs to be fixed. But that’s not true. If you think about the ways how QA can prove to be helpful, QA can be revenue-generating rather than cost incurring.
