This is achieved in two ways: firstly, by supporting the QA process within Agile functional delivery teams, and verifying the completeness of their test materials. Secondly, by liaising with analysts and designers to assess the impact of new functionality on existing features, and creating a set of regression tests to ensure that any integration issues are successfully identified and resolved. Additionally, the Product Quality Assurance Team are responsible for verifying that deployments to pre-production environments are successful.
The Product Quality Assurance Team draws on a number of skills among its team members including analysis, test case writing and test execution. Test Automation is also implemented via a Cucumber framework and tightly integrated within Infocare’s Continuous Integration development process.
