In Today’s Hyper-Complex Environment, How Can QA Testers Achieve Quality Goals?

In today’s fast-paced, hyper-complex development environment, software quality is becoming difficult, if not impossible, to control. Nobody in the enterprise—from top management to individual QA testers—can really guarantee products will ship with high quality.

In most organizations, QA testers do not have the data to understand product quality at every stage of the SDLC. Are they dealing with a product component that is well tested, or hardly tested at all? The number of tests or unit test coverage are not an effective measure. Gaps in testing efforts lead to declining quality; poor quality leads to customer dissatisfaction, and can place QA teams in a negative light.

QA testers can be a driving force in solving this problem, but they need help. With the right tooling providing data about quality risks at every stage of the development pipeline, they can focus their quality efforts to ensure even the most complex development projects move to production with zero defects.

Main Goals of QA Testers.

QA testers have the following main goals with respect to improving software quality in high-velocity development environments.

Code Coverage Beyond Unit Testing.

Unit test coverage and number of executed tests are very partial and misleading metrics, which do not show what level of manual testing, automated functional

Team Collaboration.

QA testers must have simple, shared metrics they can use to communicate about quality issues with development teams, and collaborate effectively to prevent production defects.

Staying Relevant in Fast-Paced Agile Development.

In a high velocity, high complexity development pipeline, QA testers struggle to stay relevant. They can’t possibly test all builds flowing through the pipeline. With insightful metrics about test coverage and quality risks, they could focus on the areas that need testing the most, directly contributing to high quality in production.

SeaLights Software Quality Governance.

SeaLights Software Quality Governance is the only solution that can help QA testers automatically identify, manage, and control quality risks in fast-paced development pipelines.

360-Degree Test Coverage.

QA testers develop thousands of tests across multiple test stages, but have limited insights into what those tests are actually covering. 100% unit test coverage might sound sufficient, but this can hide the fact that there are too few functional tests or no tests for critical integrations that can impact end-users.

In order to release with confidence, QA Testers need clear, accurate metrics showing what tests are really covering, so they add missing tests to mitigate quality risk.

SeaLights Software Quality Analytics integrates with dozens of testing frameworks and tools, gathers data about tests, and uses AI/ML algorithms to see what they are actually testing in the codebase. This allows QA testers to focus on the tests that matter most.

Analyzing Quality Risks in Real-Time.

Analyzing Quality Risks in Real-Time.

QA testers need a fast, automated way to identify quality risks in software components, in order to focus their efforts on resolving them.

SeaLights Quality Governance ingests millions of data points and analyzes them in real-time using AI/ML algorithms. It analyzes each build and identifies quality risks—critical components that affect users but are not sufficiently tested. QA testers can add tests to mitigate these quality risks, as soon as they are introduced.

Visibility into the Effectiveness of Tests.

QA testers invest a lot of time building tests, but many of those tests don’t really contribute to product quality. Tests that are not maintained can become broken or “flaky”, or new tests might overlap with existing ones.

SeaLights Quality Governance gives QA testers complete visibility into the effectiveness of tests. They can discover:

  • Which existing tests are not really effective—“too many tests”—and remove them to save maintenance time.
  • Which tests are missing for critical parts of the product—“too few tests”—and add them to their testing plans.
