Software Quality Engineering

Quality is a centerpiece of our standard processes of software development. We cover multiple areas like penetration, regression, automation, etc.

Don’t settle for mediocre results and ensure the highest quality for optimal business results!

Why is Software Quality Engineering vital for your organization?

Software Quality Engineering is an essential part of any software development lifecycle. This process plays a key role and starts from the beginning of a project. Software Quality Engineering is a well-developed and systematic approach to evaluate the quality of software and ensure the best results are delivered as per the agreed deadlines. Software Quality Engineering further assesses the adherence of the solution to software product standards, processes, and best practices. Our Software Quality Engineers check the compliance of any software solution by following well-established processes.

One of the core reasons to include Software Quality Engineering in the process of software product development is to ensure the final solution built fully aligns with and meets all requirement specifications and complies with standards.

Software Quality Engineering includes, yet is not limited to:

  • Maintenance of the quality of the project as per the agreed specifications and business requirements
  • Overall quality strategy and test planning
  • Defect detection
  • Defect reduction
  • Inspection, formal and informal reviews
  • Risk identification
  • Inspection, formal and informal reviews
  • Test of the project for failure observation
  • Bug identification
  • Monitoring, analysis and reporting

When should you consider Software Quality Engineering services?

Quality is crucial for the success and growth of any business. Releasing a solution on the market, without testing it first is a reckless thing to do. Software Quality Engineering is one of the essential ingredients behind every successful software solution.

You should consider Software Quality Engineering services to:

Ensure the highest quality of the software solution

Avoid unnecessary expenses after project release

Ensure all business requirements are successfully met

Minimize chances of failure due to bugs and unexpected results

Measure and assess risk of failure

Increase customer satisfaction and boost user experience

Our Software Quality Engineering Approach

We strongly believe Software Quality Engineering is an integral part of the software development lifecycle. It is not a one-time deal, but a continuous process, which ensures sustainability and business continuity. Our quality engineering services across the project lifecycle include the following:

Overall quality strategy and test planning

Definition of scope and evaluation of the current state

Selection of the best toolset to fit your goals

Establishment of quality engineering best practices, innovative approaches and goals

Improvement of automation or performance functions

Monitoring, analysis and reporting

Оur approach is focused on various types and levels of testing by adapting the necessary testing phases through the SDLC:

Types of Software Quality Engineering testing services

  • UNIT TESTING: structural, functional, error-based
  • FUNCTIONAL: requirement-based, business process-based, experience-based
  • INTEGRATION: interface based, data and service orchestration, end-to-end workflows
  • REGRESSION: selective retesting, functional-based, non-functional based
  • NON-FUNCTIONAL: interoperability, backward compatibility, reliability, usability, availability
  • SECURITY: penetration, vulnerability, quality control checklists and techniques
  • PERFORMANCE: capacity baselines, benchmarking, optimization and tuning
  • AUTOMATION AND TEST VIRTUALIZATION: automation feasibility, scripting, framework development, test virtualization, model behavior
  • MOBILE: emulating devices, debugging, mobile analytics
  • PRODUCTION MONITORING: passive and active monitoring
  • DATA QUALITY: data profiling, data monitoring, data validation/verification, DQ metrics

Methods of Software Quality Engineering testing services

Our Quality Assurance Engineers have explicit know-how and hands-on experience with the following testing methods:

Black Box Testing

In this scenario the Software Quality Engineer has little or no knowledge of how the application works internally and how inputs are being processed. The purpose of the Black Box testing method is to check the functionality of the software to make sure it is working properly and meeting user demands. This method can be applied at any testing level but is usually used for system and user acceptance testing.

White Box Testing

The White Box testing method is mainly used at the unit and integration testing levels. It is carried out to ensure security, to enhance design, UX/UI and usability.

Grey Box Testing

The Grey Box Testing method is a hybrid between Black and White Box, since it involves testing of both functional and structural parts of the application. By following this method the Quality Engineer tests specific cases while still working from the black-box perspective.

Ad Hoc Testing

In the case of Ad Hoc testing, the Software Quality Engineer jumps in to improvise and tests informally, without any preset planning and documentation. This approach will help your business to identify defects quickly.
