Achieve Success With Outsourced
Testing By Following Aspects
2016 has been a year of mashups in the enterprise
technology space. The company software market has
observed some unique upgrades such as Cloud
applications, smart device, Artificial Intelligence,
intelligent systems, etc.
Open-source innovation has taken the commercial tool
players by a storm and software testing has taken a whole
new stance in the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).
The year has seen a lot of partnerships amongst
enterprise peoples in order to improve value for the
For instance, today, even titans like Microsoft can’t claim
to own a customer’s whole enterprise software business.
Software quality assurance companies are working
together to improve their products and jointly reach out
to their customers with added value.
Achieve Success With Outsourced Testing By
Employing The Right Tools
Tools are going to play an important role in your partnership and so
you need to carefully consider what you want to use and make sure
that you and your partner have the necessary expertise.
There are tools that help with team communication and testing
Things like Slack, Google Drive, Skype, and Confluence enable you to
communicate more efficiently within the team. They make it easier
to share your knowledge, and exchange questions and answers.
Other tools, like BrowserStack, Chef, Docker, Puppet, can
supplement the test environment creation, helping you to deliver
more likely results and set baselines.
Then there are continuous integration and continuous delivery
toolsets, like Jenkins and XebiaLabs, that handle deployment.
Refining Processes and Sharing Strategy
You must always encourage and implement refinements to your processes. That means gathering feedback
from the teams to recognize exactly what worked and what didn’t.
Ask what the main challenges were and invite recommendations on how to improve production. Use those
to draw up a targeted list of 2 or 3 things that you need to improve on and build a shared action plan, so
everybody is tied into meeting goals that will profit overall project success.
Your common reason for qa outsourcing has been, why to build resources and skill sets when expertise is
easily available and the resources do not require training. Your testing partner should have experience with an
astute team that is updated with the technology that you require and who can guide you on the right
methodologies. Make sure that the partner can deploy the needed number of resources whenever and
wherever needed, as that will determine success for your project and efficiency in the delivery method.
Cost is an essential aspect to consider. However, it should not result in using amateur resources. This will lead
to the generation of the same costs or increase the costs with no output. It is advised to not rest your decision
only on the cost factors.
In fact, avoid players that give you lowest estimates
when compared to the marketplace.
Reputation In The Market
Relevance and reliability of your potential partner are
completely important. Get a cue and do some
research on the company’s leadership and reputation
in the market.
During some instances, it is desirable to go with wellestablished players as against a small start-up with no
clue on the work ethics.
Do some research on the awards and the kind of
recognition that the organization has received in the
testing and software fraternity.
Ultimately, assess the company’s customer database
and get a clue on its performance and delivery
