The Art of Quality Assurance

In the software development lifecycle, Quality Assurance (QA) is an important element in the testing phase. This is where many elements are evaluated and at the core, it is ensuring that the product works properly, is designed according to the initial brief and determines what mistakes have or were overlooked during the previous stages.

QA is a common practice to ensure that the end product of any Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) conforms to the overall and scope-agreed expectations.

As part of quality assuring our software as one of the best betting service providers in Sub-Saharan Africa, our focus is on continually improving the software development process and making it efficient and effective.

From a functional perspective, this entails looking at the product’s compliance with functional explicit requirements and design specs. Contrary to that, we have the non-functional aspect where we evaluate the systems’ inner characteristics and architecture.

A Software Quality Analyst is a go-to person for performing this role. Often tasked with testing software quality and predicting problems (or bugs in this case) that may occur or haven’t been identified, their role is essential for applying the principles and practices of software quality assurance throughout the SDLC.

Software testers do not make software; they improve software. QA performs testing where they evaluate the functionality of a software application with the intent to find whether the developed software is defect-free.

In checking the QA of software, the interaction between developers, project managers, customers, and stakeholders, plays a vital role in determining the way the system performs in terms of responsiveness and stability under a workload.

This ensures that performance testing is measured, validated or verified. Furthermore, the software is not only failure-free but also meets the user’s needs promptly.

Considering the role BET Software plays in the betting industry, security is a huge priority when it comes to their software.

Neglecting quality assurance activities is a tactic that can backfire. Security is imperative when it comes to software, so it makes sense that a company’s QA processes are vital to the company’s success.

Implementing a safeguarding process when the product is being developed helps ensure that it is built as securely as possible before finally being tested.
