QASource: Software Quality That Creates Value
Date: Friday , October 23, 2015
For various organizations, a common practice has been going on for decades\' software developers will craft solutions, and the Quality Assurance (QA) team will follow up to ensure the product will turn out to be a sell-out in the market. However, in today\'s business environment where technology has become an innovation arm for organizations to forge solutions, QA teams are still moving forward with its traditional handiwork. \"QA needs a nudge and a touch of today\'s noble innovations to realize its importance and its role to develop products at a blistering speed,\" says Rajeev Rai, Co-Founder and CEO at QASource. And this is where we focus in the QA landscape. With headquarters in Pleasanton, CA, QASource helps organizations eliminate the manual steps involved in the process of assuring quality of the software. Visibility, metrics, better business decisions, better team integration, and enhanced QA and development tools all drive QASource to deliver true value for the organizations. With QASource as a partner, quality assurance will no longer be a burden, but a valuable function that blends speed and quality into the products, exclaims Rai.
Functional automation is capable of driving QA processes more efficiently, which was missing due to predominant manual vogue. With automation, one can start finding bugs earlier in the process, almost immediately after a developer checks in the code, says Rai. This method streamlines the development process and ameliorates the quality of code, while keeping the cost, occurring due to manual steps at bay. By letting QA bring automation infrastructure into the development process, organizations can stimulate the testing cycles to release the software platforms in quick succession.
\"Mobility can be termed as one of the most important aspects of business today, as it ensures seamless operation of processes through mobile devices\' enabling organizations to operate from any location. Numerous products now have a mobile presence, which makes mobile application testing a challenging task,\" says Rai. To thwart this roadblock, QASource provides a comprehensive mobile device testing lab and team to accommodate the vast number of configurations and variables accounted for in mobile testing. After mobile, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is another trend that has become a game changer for various industries. \"The SaaS products must be configurable, and efficient and scalable with multi-tenant architecture,\" highlights Rai. QASource examines SaaS products through its integration, performance, security, and configuration testing.
QASource has worked with many companies hailing from the Healthcare, Finance, and Education verticals. The customers include Oracle, Target, Juniper, State Street, and host of other companies. QASource has helped its clients in avoiding redundant costs one large medical diagnostic organization saved over $54,000 last quarter with the companies flexible staffing model. For another client, QASource saved 1,600 person hours of QA work per month by implementing automation and improving processes, which is equivalent to nearly $59,000 per month.
\"If you are a CIO or CTO and are looking for a certain QA methodology or a certain programming language, there will be many companies who can provide that, but if you are looking for a company that will go the extra mile, then you are looking for QASource,\" says Rai. The company will continue to innovate and develop best practices to help customers get their products out faster, cheaper, and well regulated with the market needs.
