Boosting Your Software Testing Lifecycle

The software testing life cycle (STLC) is experiencing a dramatic shift. To stay updated, team leaders and managers need to “reboot” the existing specialists and hire new talent. As the World Quality Report states, the testing and QA is no longer a closing phase, but a process that emerges in parallel with development. Learn these five practices to improve software testing within your company:

  1. Plan testing adequately: prepare a quality management document; create a test strategy and determine techniques you need to use for the project; get the test plan ready as well; write compelling test cases.
  2. Perform formal technical reviews (FTRs): this will help to prevent slips and minimize the risk of logical and implementation errors beforehand.
  3. Ensure comfortable work conditions: identify QA roles, respect your team, expand their skillset and foster better communication among team members.
  4. Increase the value of automated testing: the key findings of the World Quality Report 2019–20 by Capgemini and Sogeti show that there is an increased demand in intelligent testing.
  5. Employ code quality metrics: to assess code quality, the best advice is to choose metrics that are simple and effective for your workflow. The CISQ Software Quality Model describes four aspects of code quality: reliability, performance efficiency, security, and maintainability.
