Preparing For The Next Wave Of Technology In QA

“Sometimes the opportunity needs you to remain relevant to the world’s needs; and sometimes it may even need you to act before it actually happens.”  

When it comes to transformation, the process is something that needs you to understand the pulse of your industry. And it goes all the way from junior executives to top level corporates as being more sensitive to the challenges and progression allows you to overshadow your counterparts with ease.  

This can be any programming language that is rapidly gaining popularity or upgrading to a software or technology that can redefine the entire digital process for any given enterprise operation.  

But before we underline the idea of preparing for the next wave of Technology in QA, it is necessary to walk through the past! 

The initial start of QA revolution began in 1990 with professionals having a vision for separating software problems from engineering ones. It was until 2001 that processes like Rapid Application Development gained more popularity.  

However, even the tech brands were progressing towards the bigger revolution, there was nothing exceptional done to move over essential challenges that could be encountered through software testing services. The shallow approach towards test case planning and development, were the key reason for the issue.  

Thus, it has become more important than ever to plan for the future by working on a quicker change. And this change can be defined as overcoming the challenge of practice as well as technology.  

With that being said, let us quickly jump on to learning the most significant challenges that can help transform the entire tech landscape:  

challenges QA

Lack Of Agility: The original concept behind time-to-market was meant to define the timeframe to create a competitive technical product. However, the present scenario has changed to ensure that any innovation made must reach the market quickly. This change of market dynamics has not only pushed development ahead but made QA to take a backseat. Though the situation is gradually improving, there is still a gap that needs to be worked out.  

Changed Bug Criticality: The second significant challenge that needs to be curbed with effective QA is working on business-critical issues such as security over functional approach. Especially, with users being more informed of the technology innovative functionality is no longer a threat, but business-critical threats are! 

QA & Dev Gap: QA is a very human aspect of software which works around the knowledge, information, and understanding. Thus, QA needs to be considered as an internal component of the development process and not an afterthought.  

Preparing For The QA Revolution 

With all the above-defined challenges pulling QA behind, progressing towards the revolution would need identifying all the spaces where QA needs to be integrated. On that note, let us walk through our proven list of steps that could help any IT organization to prepare for progressive QA:  

1. Establishing Domain Expertise 

The process to break the barrier between QA and software begins with establishing domain expertise. To work on domain expertise allows QA teams to refine the test process for greater value.  

Moreover, working on domain expertise even adds an economical perspective to the development lifecycle by making space for the research of new products, their features, along with an understanding of all the pros and cons of the technology. Adding to that, the process establish expertise even allows teams to work on explorative testing, allowing a fresher perspective and inclusion of unique scenarios.   

2. Improved Software Design 

The quality assurance initiatives allow developers, testers, and business analysts to see a business product as features and not any discreet specs. Also, most of the mission-critical bugs are result of poor design. It therefore splits the learning into two different paths i.e., Usability & Design Patterns. To work on both of these factors allow testers to walk through the product Inside out. It can be pondering over any features or specific functionalities that enhance a specific design element.  

3. Metrics & Measurement 

Usually, the whole concept of QA is framed around testing of features, functionalities, usability, and the various aspects of security. Though these factors are critical and have their own importance, it is important to check on quality metrics. In case of QA, these metrics are not always the defined terms and sometimes are required to be identified.  

However, the process requires testers to spend some time internally exploring and establishing all the objectives that are untouched and could help testers to yield obtainable results.  

4. Understanding System’s Fundamentals 

Most of the issues related to modern software and applications require thorough analysis of system’s fundamentals. And most of these are missed due to the inability of analysts to think on the system level.

It can even be worked following the Automata approach where a specific point in the design is taken as a point of reference for all other functionalities connecting to the original subject. Such approach allows working in a non-conventional manner and helps uncovering all the factors that makes a product success. 

5. Test Automation  

Last but not least, developers and testers must take the help of automation to work on any flaws surrounding development and quality process. With available software usage combinations and automation, both development and testing could be improved.  

However, rapid development does not necessarily give space for rapid testing, especially when there are frequent changes. Also, automation even allows improved focus on continuous integration and continuous delivery process. 

Concluding It All... 

When we say software, it is all about creating technology that shifts power in the hands of the user, simplifying even the most demanding of the tasks. Therefore, missing any opportunity to work on the trends and transformations can be a risky lookout.  

Nevertheless, the process to gain the edge prove to be extremely complicated at times. At BugRaptors, we help you take on the QA process while giving you necessary vision and ability to handle.  

If you are an IT consulting service provider or a QA company that need assistance establishing your TCoE, harnessing expert assistance on tools, operations, and methodologies, could enable you to uncover endless digital possibilities.
