Quality assurance is an essential part of the software development life-cycle. Testing software or a web solution is a comprehensive complex process. Our agile team helps ensure that the end product is functional, reliable and usable.
You have your programmer or programmers, depending on the size and scope of the product…the guys that make things work! But what happens once the programmers complete their magic? Is the project done, launched and live? In short, no, and nor should it be.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, Quality Assurance is “the maintenance of a desired level of quality in a service or product, especially by means of attention to every stage of the process of delivery or production.” Software Quality Assurance ensures that software being developed is of the highest quality.
Each step of a process or function of the software must be thoroughly assessed for potential “bugs” and tested. This often requires repeatedly testing the same thing, using various techniques to certify that the software functions flawlessly.
An analyst is able to communicate with the business to make sure objectives are met and software is functioning optimally, which all too often requires more than just reading technical documentation but also reading between the lines and predicting any and all possible scenarios.
Finally, the analyst is able to work with programmers. That's where LockData comes in. We massage every project throughout the project lifecycle to ensure it meets functional requirements, is free of bugs and is of the highest quality.
