Using Crowdsourced Quality Assurance (QA) to Deliver High Quality Software
Software developers are under tremendous pressure to deliver better software in less time, which has precipitated the rise of DevOps. DevOps must consider a software from beginning to end, so DevOps includes everyone from project managers to security to quality assurance (QA). QA is such a significant facet of DevOps because it helps ensure users accept software.
In-house QA teams can increase your chances of success but they aren’t without risk. That’s why crowdsourced QA practices are on the rise.
Crowdsourced QA means employing real users with real devices in a wide variety of locations to evaluate your software and provide meaningful feedback. It is all about harnessing the power of a crowd of testers to identify ways to make your product work better for users. Trying to assemble such a group on your own will be time-consuming and potentially expensive.
Today, there are powerful crowdtesting services to instantly provide your DevOps with a crowdsourced QA team.
