Certain myths which were prevalent in the past and have faded away with the passage of time and increase in awareness – ‘Why is the need for QA?’, ‘Let us develop and implement right now, won’t the customer tell us if there are errors?’, ‘With such a skilled team of developers, do we need testers at all?’.
With IT penetrating deep into our daily lives and regular routines, its impact is exponentially increasing and so is the reach of Software Development. There is a radical transformation taking place leading to increased productivity – whatsoever field it may be and enhanced satisfaction at all levels. At such a crucial stage, one area that plays a pivotal role in the success of any software application development is Software quality assurance. Having quality controls all over the project, at various phases and levels is a sure shot way to ensure that the project reaches it goal seamlessly, without any hindrances, and is able to satisfy its clients with utmost business requirement fulfillment.
