What is Quality Assurance (QA) Services?
Quality Assurance occupies an important place when speaking about creating software. Sometimes this term becomes misunderstood or misinterpreted. QA is confused with quality control and even simple testing in development, although being different processes.
Before we start talking about Quality Assurance, let's state clearly what it means.
QA in software development - denoting
Quality Assurance denotes a wider notion in programming. This identifies an activity set covering each development stage, release & operation, i.e. activities at several software cycle stages undertaken to ensure required product quality levels.
When comparing Quality Assurance vs. QC, the latter contains actions carried out on products during the development process for obtaining information about its current state: product readiness, whether solutions meet requirements at specific time period, etc.
Software Testing has more differences from QA. This denotes QC technique including activities concerning planning test actions, designing tests, executing tests and analyzing received data. Mentioned steps obtain crucial significance when building robust solutions possessing maximum functionality and increased user experience.
QA in software development practices and processes is a learning process, when studying operational failures and finding methods to fix them; when examining what works right, determining circumstances, as well as how to increase performance with each new project.

Why is Quality Assurance in Software Development Important?

There exists several testing types used in software Quality Assurance. Check them below:
Difference between Functional vs. Non-functional testing
Functional software testing focuses on item operation, its output generation. Non-functional tests check how it performs and look for improvements.
The first testing type is done manually, whereas other is automated, both important in Quality Control.
Choose: Manual vs. Automated?
According to automation degree, there are 2 testing types:
Manual testing. Includes writing test cases by professional teams and manually checking test cases before release.Automated testing. Includes applying soft utilities for testing and verifying test results.
Although the second option saves time and simplifies processes, Alfee team can implement both options by request.
Testing areas application
