Quality Assurance vs. Quality Control: The Difference and Comparison

Every company, no matter what services or goods it produces, has to deal with three most important values: time, price and quality. These are three pillars for clients when they choose something to buy. They want either a quick delivery, or a reasonable price, or excellent quality. Obviously, there’s no technology to provide these values in one product simultaneously; clients can expect two of them at best. For most customers, when asked about the importance of these values, it usually comes down to quality.

What Are the Estimation Techniques in Software Testing?

Software testing is considered to be an integral part of the development process. It is carried out to identify any system malfunctions and ensure that a defective product doesn’t reach clients. Another testing goal is to assure the customer that the developed product fully conforms to the agreed specifications and meets all the requirements.

How to Increase the Conversion Rate with Load Testing?

Ever wonder how two seemingly disparate notions – the conversion rate and load testing affect each other? There is a direct dependence between the website’s performance and resource attractiveness for users. The purpose of load testing is to assess the operations of web resources and spot possible bottlenecks for further performance enhancement. Let us explore via the example of Black Friday.

Five Best Tools to Improve Embedded Software Testing

Every software development process goes through similar steps. The requirements are collected, the system is designed, and finally, the code is written. Testing is the last step in traditional software development process. Due to inevitable delays in projects, the last part is frequently the one to be cut in resources. The implication is that we deliver bug-ridden products that infuriate our customers and drive them to competitive products. In this article, we will go through the best practices and best tools to improve embedded software testing.

How to Test Software: the Functional Testing of Web Applications

Companies that know how to watch their money usually opt for the implementation of testing as part of quality assurance in the early stages of software development. Although these procedures are quite resource- and time-consuming, they are the silver bullet for companies that care about their name and well-being. A well-timed software check for possible bugs and performance issues may prevent businesses from bearing incomparably heavier costs on post-release bug-fixing and reputation recovery. Read More

What is Agile Testing?

It is only in the last fifteen years ago that Agile has become a buzzword, but nowadays a growing number of software development teams lean toward this approach. Apart from the fact that that it enables equal involvement of all team members in the process, it also gives a free hand in choosing development methodology and tools. Naturally, such an atypical approach to software creation is marked by the changes in the structure of its endogenous processes, compared to a traditional model. So, to answer the question – “What is agile testing methodology?” – we need to gain insight on the Agile software development specifics.
