SQA is a process to make sure that developed software complies with defined and according to set rules of standard. It is a monitoring system in software engineering to keep a check on quality and standards of any software. It is an ongoing process with software development life cycle. SQA consist of routinely check the developed software to ensure to meet desired quality measures. SQA encompasses the overall software development procedure. SQA serves as independent assurance in which work products, activities and processes act in accordance with pre-defined plans.
Why software needs SQA Service?
SQA is the system of monitoring oversight of development so problem can be prevented before it prevails. Implementation of SQA involves carrying out systematic quality check, related verification and quality audit that runs parallel. The project members, project managers and stakeholders all are responsible for quality assurance of software development.
To improve the inputs for quality assurance process there must be taken quality merits, process improvement, and work performance in consideration. In this procedure assurance refers to scrutiny of every stage of working and development of software. If any of the stage is not checked there is always a chance of disturbance in expected working of software. Although each step in software development related and would complement next stage but SQA will treat it as a different entity. Each phase has its own implementation plan by developers.
What is SQA Plan?
The SQA plan is a document that is a road map in SQA, with the purpose to specify the process to be followed in every stage of software development. SQA plan also defines the procedure to be followed in each activity done to accomplish the previously discussed stage.
The aim of SQA plan is to ensure that the development of software is based on mode of action and from time to time development to be measured and controlled. SQA plan governs by different policies, observes methodologies, and by several quality standards.

Automated testing tools are capable of executing tests, reporting outcomes and comparing results with earlier test runs. Tests carried out with these tools can be run repeatedly, at any time of day. The method or process being used to implement automation is called a test automation framework. Automation testing is for every organization creating apps across web, mobile or enterprise desktop platforms that require frequent manual testing.
The benefits derived from test automation at the team of automation experts at ADS include:
- Reduced overall test analysis cost.
- Reduced development time and increased testing speed.
- Enhanced software quality, as it removes the possible human risks during the QA process
- Improved efficiency, shorter test cycles, and increased test coverage by automating repetitive tests.
Functional testing is a software testing process used within software development in which software is tested to ensure that it conforms to all requirements. Functional testing is a way of checking software to ensure that it has all the required functionality that’s specified within its functional requirements. Functional testing basically refers to the black box testing that evaluate a particular IT product with reference to the functional requirements indicated with its specification. It is considered as a pivotal element for strengthening the quality of developed software. Why are we the right team for the job?
- Correct module collaboration of a system according to its specified requirements.
- Enhanced user experience by removing out functional bugs & any lost opportunities in settings.
- Test units of each system to validate interaction of each component& deliver expected output.
- Smoke, Acceptance & system testing ensure accurate testing results related to bugs & vulnerabilities assessments.
Software performance testing is the process of evaluation of the quality or capability of a product. It is also used to determine the speed or effectiveness of the software program or device. Our processes and tools offer powerful, realistic load tests for thousands of users running business scenarios across a broad range of enterprise application environments, providing you with practical diagnostics and solutions to resolve performance issues. The dedicated performance testing team at Aldaim Solutions will:
- Assess production readiness of an IT system to achieve performance goals and requirements.
- Compare performance characteristics of multiple systems or system configurations.
- Discover the source of major performance vulnerabilities impacting the desired performance quality.
- Ensure the hardware configuration is suitable for the application’s performance.
Role of technologies used in SQA
For SQA process there are some technologies which help in efficient working. Software development and quality check procedure need to be examined through some elevated technologies, choice of best software technology by developers enhance the profitability in any industry.
Java desktop application that is designed to test functionality and performance of web site that’s has expand in its application to other testing functions. Jmeter is a tool used for loading performance test of software. It serves like a group of users requesting to target server, which on receiving request in response show the performance of the application or server in graphs and tables.
- Selenium Web Driver
Selenium is software testing system for web that provides automation of browser. Selenium web Driver is a testing tool which helps to verify that any web application is working in expected manners.
Its principle is to furnish a friendly API that’s easy to use, explore and to understand. Selenium web driver builds tools for automation test such as selenium IDE, selenium RC, Grid and web driver. It is test system only for web applications.
In SQA this tool is server application that refers to debug web apps through logging all HTTP(S) traffic between computer and internet. Fiddler manages incoming and outgoing data flow helps to examine traffic and observe break points. Fiddler also helps to monitor and modifies request and responses. Fiddler consists of strong event based scripting program with facility of being used by anyone.
Postman is a technology that helps developers and companies to manage API work flow. It is most efficient and speedy way to test and develop documents of any software. Postman has more than 80 features in it that can assist software development. Postman creates complex requests, offers add on packages which include automation tools.
PhantomJS is observed tool for running unit tests. It can manipulate and load web pages. It can automate QA tasks in web development by implementation of web standards. It is used in headless testing procedure of web applications. PhantomJS is Java script API that enables navigations, user behaviour, screenshots and declaration in automation system. All these steps make PhantomJS a common tool for being test unit.
In SQA where other technologies are serving JIRA is considered to be number one in tracking issues and plans in soft development. JIRA is a platform that serves in project design, development, monitoring and revision testing. Where in software development tasks run in series so as the issue goes from planning to completion. That’s the point where JIRA comes with features to meet varying requirements and situations of agile SQA team.
In testing process of software quality Trello is a collaboration tool that puts projects in order. Trello is basically a list of lists, filled with cards used by the developers. It organizes the projects on board and cards. With opening any card file upload, comments, label, check lists and many other features can be used.
- Pivotal Tracker
It is a project planning tool that helps software developers in formation of realistic expectations about work and team’s ongoing performance. Pivotal tracker helps the project managers and developers in planning software development process. It assists in all kinds of projects from first step to last.
Significance of SQA in software development system
Software quality assurance is very important in software development progress because with help of this system developers can improve the quality of software and detect the expected faults and defects in early stages and can handle them on time.
The time consumed in debugging and testing of software is half of the time used in entire development process. In software development SQA is source to check the working of software and applications; it also observes that provided software is working according to expected manners.
To conclude it can be said, it is a system of check and balance for web developers and companies to ascertain the predictable defects and improve the quality of the work to maintain reputation in market and to satisfy customers.
