The DevOps Lifecycle

It’s important to note that DevOps instills an ongoing process of constant, iterative, incremental improvement. While the concept of a “lifecycle” implies, for some, that there is a finite “life” with a beginning and an end, the emphasis here is more on the “cycle” which will continue cycling until such time as the software under management is retired.

Artificial intelligence is poised to be one of the biggest things to hit the technology industry (and many other industries) in the coming years.  But just because it holds enormous potential does not mean it does not also have its challenges.  And, those challenges are not small, which is why recognizing and working towards resolutions to problems can help further propel artificial intelligence’s rapid growth.

When tech industry insiders are discussing what major trends, they anticipate for the next five or ten years, topics like machine learning, artificial intelligence, and deep learning always come up.  These terms are often used interchangeably and, while they are all intertwined and connected to each other, they are each unique thing. Forbes offers a helpful description of what exactly deep learning is, “Deep learning is a subset of machine learning where artificial neural networks, algorithms inspired by the human brain, learn from large amounts of data.

What is DevOps?

With the 2018 “State of DevOps” report telling us that those who implement the practice enjoy software delivery times that are 2,555 times faster, its clearly worth the time to learn more about it and how to implement it in your own organization.

The simplest and most understandable definition of DevOps can be drawn from the two words it is a compound of, development and operations. As we move along you may find it useful to change the question “What is DevOps” to “What can we achieve by adopting a DevOps culture?”

What is QA in Software Testing?

Quality Assurance in Software Testing

 When software is designed, distributed and deployed, the hope is that it works correctly without issue.  But, as we all know, that is often not the case.  How many times have you been working on something only to discover a software bug or other problem?  Or been working in software that is difficult to use, does not do everything you need it to do, or is inefficient to use. Probably at least a few times.  A software defect is not just a bug, it could be any problem that impacts the end-user experience.  That is where software testing and quality assurance come in. The way to minimize defects and maximize end-user experience is with quality assurance in software testing.

 How Do Quality Assurance and Software Testing Work Together?

To assure quality in any product, it may need multiple rounds of testing.  It needs to be tested in different ways, with different users and different scenarios to truly feel confident that the software you are distributing will provide end-users a quality experience.  There is a difference between testing and assurance.  Software testing identifies problems.  Part of quality assurance is finding a solution to the problem and implementing it.  But, there is more to it than that.

 Quality Assurance as More than Fixing Software Defects

 Beyond simply fixing apparent (or hidden) problems, quality assurance works with defined metrics of ‘quality’ to ensure that they are met in the software.  What needs to happen for your end-user to have a ‘quality’ experience?  These metrics must be clearly defined so that the quality assurance process can receive the information from software testing and determine what changes need to be made.  The internal quality of the software (the code) must be honed to the ideal quality so that the external quality (the end-user experience) can be optimized.

 While fixing software defects is incredibly important, it is important to remember that software testing and quality assurance is a two-sided coin.   In addition to managing and eliminating defects, it is important to determine what ‘quality attributes’ should be in place.  Because really, anything that does not meet the needs of the end-user could be determined a ‘defect.’

 Testing provides the information but QA is the process of actually implementing the changes to assure that the end-user actually experienced quality software.  Quality assurance and software testing are both good, but they are far better when they work in unison to produce an outstanding software product.

What is quality assurance in software testing? Is there any difference between quality control and quality assurance? People normally get confused when they are asked to differentiate between quality assurance and quality control. They believe that quality control, quality testing, and quality assurance are the same activities. As they perform similar kinds of functions, they can be easily confused as the same activities. However, these are different and perform different types of tasks. In this article, we will discuss these types of activities with some more details about quality assurance.

Onshore vs Offshore

The main difference. Offshoring means getting work completed in a different country. Onshore refers to giving work to an organization in the same country you reside.

What Does it Mean to Outsource?

Outsourcing refers to giving work to an organization outside of yours.  Projects can be outsourced to Onshore and Offshore companies.
