Software Quality Assurance (SQA) encompasses the entire software development process, which includes processes such as requirements definition, software design, coding, source code control, code reviews, change management, configuration management, testing, release management, and product integration. The Software Engineering Body of Knowledge organizes SQA into goals, commitments, abilities, activities, measurements, and verifications.
Software functional quality is defined as conformance to explicitly stated functional requirements specified through use cases in the business analysis stage and the level of satisfaction experienced by end-users, referred to as usability. Software testing is a part of the software quality assurance (SQA) process. Although there are close links with SQA, testing departments often exist independently. Software testing is undertaken to detect defects in software. Software testing practices and tools ensure that a piece of software behaves in compliance with the original design, planned user experience and desired functionality. By contrast, QA (quality assurance) is the implementation of policies and procedures intended to prevent defects from occurring in the first place.
However, both SQA and software testing requires specialist resources, skills, and tools. Investment into the right resources for SQA and software testing pays off in the form of better software. Most often, organizations find it difficult to access specialist resources for SQA and software testing. Vertisystem offers highly skilled software quality analysts and testing engineers who contribute to the overall software quality and reliability while meeting tight release deadlines.
