Quality is all-encompassing throughout the entire SDLC; however, the specific roles that Quality/Test-focused individuals have played within the SDLC have adapted and morphed over time. Quality Control (QC) transformed into Quality Assurance (QA), and now with the emphasis on Agility and the advent of DevOps transforming traditional SDLC’s, Quality Assurance is shifting to Quality Engineering (QE). QE is the focus of building quality INTO the product. As a quality services organization, these adaptations are welcomed changes and have allowed us the opportunity to expand our service offerings while remaining dedicated to our core business principals. Currently, we consider the following disciplines to fall within what we consider the “Quality Umbrella":
- Agile / Scrum
- CMMI, ISO 9001, Lean Six Sigma
- Quality Assurance
- Configuration Management
- Enterprise Automation
- Continuous Integration & Continuous Deployment / Delivery (CI/CD)
- Cloud Based Testing
Application Testing & Integration
- Web & Mobile
- Data / Quality Testing
- Cross Platform Testing
- Load / Performance Testing
- Webservices / Microservices Integration
- Risk Assessment
- Active Penetration / Vulnerability Testing
- Exploit Analysis (Zero-Days)
- Continuous Monitoring
