Quality Assurance and Risk Management
Prevention is better than cure
With quality assurance you won’t loose trust of your customers because of the large number of the defects in your software. The loss of trust can be followed by losing customers.
Today the development of even the smallest software necessarily includes comprehensive verification. The time dedicated to testing and debugging of the software product takes about half of the entire development cycle.
If you start testing at the stage of the requirements development, this process will end much earlier, and will cost much less as the cost for testing is considerably lower than the cost of development.
To sum up, software quality assurance is important because it allows to:
- Ensure project meets requirements
- Prevent, detect and fix defects early
- Minimize project risks
- Increase product reliability
- Improve end user experience
