Quality as a Service

QA Video

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort. It underpins everything you do, like Development, Integration and Innovation. Without it, we may begin quickly, but soon slow down as technical debt trips up each iteration or change. In this video we discuss how our QA practice is now delivering QA as a Service, using its metrics, processes and consultants.

QA Data sheet

Our Agile development teams include dedicated QAs who shape the test strategy, tooling and processes. This is a process of continual improvement. To share insights between projects, we bring together these QAs into an Estafet Practice.

QA Assessment

QA Assessment

We have specialist nearshore teams using automated tools and working closely with development teams to ensure sustained quality, velocity and agility. Find out how we on-board new customers, beginning with a two-week, time-boxed assessment.

Metrics - Track key quality metrics
Dashboards - integrate quality & progress data
Distributed Agile - collaborating closely with customer teams

Estafet’s agile methodology and QA framework means we deliver high quality projects on time

Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of intelligent effort. Without it, technical debt soon makes software brittle or hard to adapt. Whilst you cannot “test in” quality to software once written, you can change the way you work to ensure sustained agility. This means thinking about how you write, test and integrate.

“Our processes and staff treat quality as a cultural facet to all that we do. Quality and our desire to constantly improve is in our blood.”

Stanislava Georgieva, QA Practice Lead

To share insights between projects, we bring together these QAs into an Estafet Practice. Our QA practice has not only changed how we work, but is now offering its tools, processes and expertise to customer development teams as a managed service.

Our new proposition, Testing as a Service is based on a well-established capability. It involves nearshore staff working in close collaboration with customer development teams, using our processes, metrics and test automation skills to augment your delivery capability.

We have teamed up with Red Hat and our Practice Leads to build a coherent view of the core metrics underpinning successful development projects. This means extracting raw data from, for example, JIRA, Sonarqube and Jenkins, creating derived metrics to monitor quality and progress and presenting a unified dashboard to stakeholders.

Quality as a Service - KEY FEATURES

Agile Development

Agile Development has a mature toolset associated with the development and test lifecycle, including Project Control, Build Automation, Testing across services and UI as well as instrumentation of the SDLC.

Core Metrics

We have teamed up with Red Hat and our Practice Leads to build a coherent view of the core metrics underpinning successful development projects.

Dashboards

We extract raw data from sources such as JIRA, Sonarqube and Jenkins, creating derived metrics to monitor quality and progress and presenting a unified dashboard to stakeholders.

OpenShift

We are using a robust micro-services architecture, deployed to a cloud-hosted OpenShift PaaS.

Engagement Approach

We onboard new customers after a short, time-boxed assessment. The first week is a review of your existing development and testing lifecycle with our QA team in Sofia. The second week is spent on-site with you in the UK presenting back our findings, recommendations and costs.

Testing Strategies

We work with you define approaches for load testing and non functional testing strategies Helping to break down traditional barriers between QA and Dev teams by collaborative and transparent working.

TESTING & QUALITY ASSURANCE

The Quality Assurance Practice gives customers a structured approach to growing project size and complexity, including: Test Automation, Best Practices for Testing Strategies, Best Practices for Adoption of tools such as Cucumber, Selenium and QTP.

We seek long-term partnerships with growing businesses that understand the benefits of Agile working and are prepared to share their development roadmap with us. This helps us build a better service that capitalises on our own experience, frameworks and investment in good, collaborative staff.

Some customers also want to outsource management of their integration platform. We run Cloud Integration Platforms as part of our service. This means we are responsible for both the software development and the live service, including the cloud platform it runs on.

For some, this is an interim state whilst the in-house team adjusts to new technology or DevOps processes. For others, this is a longer-term investment which frees the in-house team to focus on other, high-value business priorities. We are flexible, and our goal is to support your business in a way that makes sense for you.

We don’t employ salesmen, only delivery experts and software professionals who have seen many integration projects across many different verticals. If we can help, we’ll be clear as to the value we bring; if not – perhaps you are outside our core tech, or your problem is in some way unique – we’ll tell you. Our honest and collaborative approach to managed service is well-established and we are keen to hear about your needs: we love an interesting problem to solve.
