Software QA consulting 

The development of a software solution is a complex and effort-consuming process aimed at delivering a highly functional product of top-notch quality. Yet, even when you have a finished software piece on your table, its operation may turn out to be substandard. By commissioning quality assurance consulting services from a competent vendor, you can avoid such an outcome and guarantee the seamless operation of any type of software your enterprise relies on in its workflow. 

Reasons why you need software QA consulting 

The management of many organizations believes that all their problems related to the quality of high-tech products end with setting up an in-house IT department where QA experts are a part of the team. However, the value they bring to the company can be maximized by inviting an expert software QA consultant, especially if you notice one of the following ominous symptoms:

  • Endemic critical errors in the solutions your internal team releases, which point to an inadequate QA approach 
  • Longer than you expect time-to-market of new features or products 
  • Expertise dearth when either your QA employees lack the necessary skills with particular software architecture, design, technology, etc., or the in-house crew is understaffed 
  • The looming necessity to pass software security compliance certification (PCI DSS, GDPR, HIPAA), process certification (ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 13485), or QA maturity certification (TMMi Foundation, TPI NEXT® Foundation) audits

Our software QA consulting process 

The success of any project is largely conditioned by a properly chosen strategy for its implementation. During 12+ years of presence in the IT outsourcing market, DICEUS has developed a meticulous and efficient roadmap for providing QA consulting services. 

Step 1. Discovery phase We kick off by meeting up with customer representatives and other stakeholders to learn their needs and requirements. Also, our experts study relevant documentation and examine the QA process employed by the client organization. The major deliverable of this stage is the QA assessment report, in which we determine the QA maturity level and pinpoint improvement areas. 
Step 2. Project planning With all the pertinent information at our disposal, we outline the project scope, suggest possible solutions to the problems we detected, and identify risks and limitations that may hamper project fulfillment. Then, we draw a detailed plan containing specific tasks, a timeline of their performance, target KPIs, a workforce roster that will tackle the project, and the tool kit necessary for it.  
Step 3. Project implementation After the devised plan gets the green light from the client, our QA team gets down to work hammer and tongs. We implement the proposed solutions, supervise the process to forestall potential issues, and handle those that crop up (if any). Alongside QA routine improvement, consultants ensure knowledge transfer to the customer’s QA crew in the form of a comprehensive knowledge base and training materials. 
Step 4. Post-project analysis Once the QA processes optimization has been put into effect, we review and assess the outcomes and deliverables of the project. In tight cooperation with the internal QA team, we analyze the results, reveal obstacles and bottlenecks the project encountered, and provide actionable recommendations (both technical and procedural) on how to avoid issues in the future. 
Step 5. Support and maintenance As a responsible vendor, DICEUS never calls it a day as soon as the project is over. Our consultants monitor the performance of the in-house team for some time to let it master the nuts and bolts of the enhanced QA process, offer further improvement-driving suggestions, issue relevant reports with a FAQ section, and stand by to react to possible problems on short notice.

FAQ 

What is software QA consulting? 

It is the range of activities related to assisting the in-house QA team of an organization in different aspects of testing software products and ensuring their quality. As a rule, they include auditing and optimizing existing QA processes, launching such processes from scratch, CI/CD pipeline optimization, and test automation set-up. 

What are the benefits of hiring software QA consultants? 

Even if you have an internal QA team as a part of the IT department, its members may lack competence in certain technologies or software architecture types. As a result, the efficiency of the current QA pipeline may be substandard. A high-profile outsourcer will step into the breach, provide qualified advice, and take part in optimizing QA processes.  

How do I choose the right QA consulting firm? 

The selection procedure starts with analyzing your needs, requirements, and budget you are ready to allocate for consulting services. Then, you should study the market by combing out vendor-rating platforms (like Clutch or GoodFirms) and compile a shortlist of candidates. To choose the best among them, visit their sites to scrutinize portfolios, staff qualifications, experience in your niche, geographical location, and pricing policy. A good idea is to contact previous clients and discover their satisfaction with the cooperation process and outcomes.  

How long does a typical software QA consulting engagement last? 

It all depends on the nature of the service you commission. Consulting on a specific software type, QA training, or QA process audit can be completed within two weeks. QA process improvement, test automation implementation, and pre-certification QA assistance may take twice as much. The longest to perform (up to six weeks) is the QA process set-up.
