Many software development teams face the challenge of insufficient QA on demand. For example, though many companies have in-house QA resources in place, not nearly enough are equipped to tackle QA spikes right before each release cycle. “Borrowing” resources from other in-house departments also come with several drawbacks.
A risk of load spikes is one reason On-Demand QA solutions have become so attractive over the last few years. Companies that require extensive QA will often team up with professional testing houses during their peak times. Developer/tester duality brings excellent value to the table as the cost is limited to the actual times On-Demand resources are working on your project. No extra hiring, training, or maintaining of resources are necessary.
iBeta’s QA On-Demand Process
The iBeta QA On-Demand model ensures that testing can ramp up or down depending on the needs of development and testing cycles. We dedicate a test team that integrates with your internal resources to help you achieve significant milestones and release dates faster.
- Fact-Finding Phone Call: This phone interview ensures that we understand your needs and how we can help you.
- Client and iBeta put an NDA in place: Your proprietary information and products are secure with our teams.
- Client provides iBeta with documentation and access to the application or site.
- iBeta furnishes a Statement of Work (SOW) or Proposal and submits it to the client for review: This outlines everything that we intend to do for you.
- Client accepts Proposal/SOW and returns it, signed, to iBeta: We can now officially start working on the project.
- iBeta’s designated Project Manager will contact the client to discuss scheduling and to organize a project kick-off call.
- Kick-Off call: We will discuss in-depth the project needs and obtain any additional information that we need to get the project started.
- Project starts.
- Project Manager will be in constant contact with the client throughout the project. The Account Manager is also available to address client concerns.
I think we can agree that software testing is an essential step before any release. After all, if you don’t have a proper testing process in place, your product could seriously fail. Discovering issues after a product launch could result in costly redesigns or — gasp! — scrapping of the whole dang thing. This is especially likely when QA testing is insufficient and slated only for the end of development.
