CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery or Deployment) couldn’t be more continuous. The term literally contains the word continuous twice. That’s how continuous it should be! 

But what does it mean? In a nutshell, developers and engineers integrate changes to code as an application is developed, after which artifacts are built and either manually or automatically deployed so that even the smallest of changes can be made live at any time. At Virtuoso, we believe that software QA should be just as continuous as CI/CD, and the community of QA workers all over the world should know the criticality of their work and the fun they can have doing it.

Continuous software QA

Quality Assurance is a field that ebbs and flows. There are constant updates, adaptations to trends, buzzwords that kick in with a bang (some that stay forever and some that fizzle away), reinvigoration of older methodologies… it’s not a static field, that’s for sure. Here at Virtuoso, we believe that the key to continuous software QA for our clients rests squarely on our ability to provide customers with a quality-first platform that stays up-to-date with the latest technologies in AI and Machine Learning, without compromising on the key principles of providing our users with an easy-to-use tool that simplifies the most complex of testing processes.  

The criticality of QA workers

We don’t mean only test engineers, manual testers, and QA analysts - we mean everyone that’s involved in the continuous process of quality assurance, right from a product or feature’s design through to the final implementation and deployment. And with Virtuoso, that can be anyone on the team. 

In today’s continuous QA environment, it’s essential that anyone on the team can jump in at any time to achieve successful shift-left testing and assist with the various phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). In fact, this process can start right from the moment that BDD requirements have been determined. Virtuoso uses Natural Language Programming to ensure that anyone can author, execute, and maintain tests using plain English. Virtuoso also provides dashboards, reports, and organization management features for easier insight into the progress of testing projects and goals.

It’s critical that QA workers - whether in the role of business analysts, product managers, test/automation engineers, UX designers, or other collaborative areas - can use Virtuoso to follow the software testing process and provide the necessary inputs in an easy manner. Put quality first by enabling everyone in your company to become part of the QA process.

Have fun testing

Lastly, we want testers worldwide to experience the pleasure of using a platform that removes the difficulties of traditional software testing. Equipped with the right tool, test automation is fun. Not convinced? There’s only one thing to do - hit us up for a free demo and we’ll change your mind!
