However, do all businesses need to be consulted on Quality Assurance Strategy? Are there specific prerequisites? Let’s find out with Sencury!
What is QA Strategy Consulting and Why Do You Need it?
Quality Assurance Strategy Consulting is a type of service that aims to help different organizations both create and implement a custom-made QA strategy for the software development life cycle (SDLC). This service requires working with an expert, who will be able to identify current QA process weaknesses within the organization, create a strategy to overcome them and implement this strategy into the SDLC.
The QA Strategy Consultant thoroughly analyses the following procedures:
software development process
testing tools, and techniques
roles and responsibilities of team members
Based on this analysis, the QA Strategy Consultant gives concrete recommendations on how to improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of the software development process.
You might need QA Strategy Consulting in three prominent cases. For example, if your organization has
unoptimized QA process
non-effective QA process
lack of in-house QA expertise
Having these specific knowledge gaps and the lack of skills to achieve success requires help from the outside. Therefore, a great plus is that QA Strategy Consulting exists as a service.
What are the Pillars of QA Strategy Consulting?
The QA Strategy Consulting consists of several steps. It is a process of
Discovery, where a QA consulting expert assesses the organization’s QA practices and identifies what can be improved.
Analysis, where the data obtained during Discovery is scrutinized to create a valid QA strategy.
Recommendations, where the QA Strategy Consultant recommends the best ways to implement the new QA strategy, and how to utilize tools, techniques, and methodologies correctly to improve the company’s software quality, working efficiency, and the team’s effectiveness.
Implementation, where the QA Consulting Expert works with the internal team to ensure the new QA strategy is being implemented and integrated into the software development process.
Therefore, QA Strategy Consulting exists as a service to help organizations meet their unique needs and goals. The main idea of this service is to improve the quality of software products, reduce costs, and improve efficiency and effectiveness through the advancement of business workflows.
What are the Benefits of QA Strategy Consulting?
Despite a business client's focus-industry and direction, QA Strategy Consulting can be beneficial in a variety of ways. For example, the most crucial ones are:
Quality software is important for any business. With QA Strategy Consulting software quality improves drastically. QA experts identify and address quality issues and reduce the risk of defects early in development.
A tailor-made QA strategy should align with an organization's goals and needs. Therefore, expert consulting on the QA strategy results in improved testing efficiency and reduced testing time and costs. Your software products will be delivered faster and with high quality. The resources used for product development will be used more efficiently.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of risks throughout the whole software development process. With QA Strategy Consulting it is possible to identify and manage these risks, especially security vulnerabilities, compliance issues, and performance inconsistencies. This way organizations mitigate the impact of any risks and avoid costly consequences.
Companies with outstanding software quality and efficiency are more competitive in the software development market within their industry. Best quality impacts customer satisfaction in a positive way. With user preference comes an improved brand reputation, and a stronger market position.
Such industries as healthcare, finance, and government require a regulated approach according to industry standards. Thus, QA Strategy Consulting ensures compliance and reduces the risk of non-compliance penalties and legal consequences.
If your business needs to scale, QA Strategy Consulting can develop a scalable testing approach that adapts to changing business needs during the period of growth. Adjusting to changes, a QA strategy remains effective and efficient even over time.
