Level 1 |

You're close to achieving the QA maturity as per the industry standards.

Level 1 sets you up for a moderate QA capability - with a basic workflow that includes all the essentials that help you achieve your QA maturity. There's no time like now for you to step up your game and work towards meeting your industry standards.

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.

Level 2 |

You meet the desired level of achieving QA maturity as per the industry standards.

You've built a few robust testing practices across the team from the ground up and made it to level 2. A few more objectives to accomplish, and you'll be on your way to level 3.

Streamline your testing practices: While having in place some of the mechanisms to carry out testing processes, it's likely to take a toll on your team's efficiency in the long run without a unified testing practice. You can streamline your testing processes, starting with establishing a list of metrics to measure, analyzing production data by employing a robust test automation framework.

Level 3 |

You've exceeded industry standards.

You've come past all the roadblocks of the first two levels to get where you're today.

Our QA consultants' recommendation on improvements

Automate first: 9 out of 10 companies prefer faster application delivery. And with automate first mindset, your test team will write tests for every functionality you create or performance you intend to improve, needed for faster app delivery. Now it's a great time to prepare for the next jump in the QA process!

Improve user experiences: All the users today expect products that offer a seamless experience. Take a small but significant step towards automating non-functional requirements like performance, security for earlier identification of issues and enabling faultless user experiences.

Increase tester motivation: Optimizing internal QA processes to improve testing productivity is one way to improve team productivity. Forbes report states that happy employees are up to 20% productive than unhappy employees. Setting up an ecosystem that rewards learning, and recognition will help your team of testers feel appreciated and motivate them to perform better.
