Key challenges facing Software Engineering leaders

Balance continuous innovation and delivery with low risk deployments.

QA keeping pace with development

Your Dev team is powering ahead, but QA is trailing in their wake. For Software Engineering leaders, it’s a headache if your QA resources can’t complete testing within the sprint timeframe. Longer times to release generate added pressure from around the business.

Hiring and retaining

Tech skills are in high demand across all sectors right now. Finding people with the right technical knowledge and experience who know how to play as a team is particularly challenging. How can you access high quality QA team augmentation that could ease pressure on your delivery cycles and free up your own time?

Getting the balance right between speed and quality

With all the pressure to deliver competitive advantage through new and improved digital products, it’s tricky to get the balance right between speed of execution and quality of results. Compromising on quality risks the exceptional customer experience, yet the business demands continuous innovation and fast delivery. A supportive QA and testing with 24/7 capacity could ease erosion of your valuable development time.

Demand surpasses capacity

When the demands on your engineering team exceeds their capacity to deliver, it’s stressful. Everyone’s working flat out to resolve issues, but there’s a danger of creating new ones due to hasty, pressured work. The ideal would be to test throughout the development process, with early QA involvement for a more manageable delivery cycle.

Revenue vs. reputation – the real cost of poor web quality

It turns out, poor web quality can be pretty expensive. Even more so if you find those pesky bugs after launch. According to the Systems Sciences Institute at IBM, the cost to fix an error found after product release was four to five times as much as one uncovered during development.
