Our QA consultants' recommendation on improvements
Upgrade your testing processes: For teams starting out to execute test automation, basic testing methods might be sufficient for now. However, as the improvision of the product takes place, you'll need a more organized way of writing your test cases with reusability in mind, identifying defects and communicating them back and forth, and guaranteeing the quality of the product. We'd recommend moving to adapt more mature testing practices before the chaos unfold.
Establish continuous testing practices: A study by Forrester reports that 52% of the companies think that more frequent releases will have a positive impact on their digital objectives; their current software release cycles are still on a monthly or quarterly basis, and only 13% of companies are able to reach a state of biweekly releases." To truly achieve faster releases, you need to go beyond a basic level of QA practices. Employing continuous testing through stable test automation will go a long way in boosting the product's quality.
