Belatrix Software’s Strategic QA & Testing receives ISTQB Certification.
Belatrix Software, a global Nearshore software product development and testing firm released today that it recently completed the training phase that now gives their QA Engineers the ISTQB certification. ISTQB, the most widely recognized and fastest-growing software tester certification in the world, is the gold standard in software testing.
A core area of expertise, the Belatrix Software QA & Testing practice is a vital component of the firm’s value proposition for producing high quality software product innovation. For product companies, releasing poor quality software products risks significant customer dissatisfaction, brand impairment, as well as lost revenue and marketshare erosion. Belatrix Software’s point of view is that QA & Testing is strategic given the sheer magnitude of the consequences should testing not occur or not occur well. Belatrix QA engineers work with clients to de-risk the development process and produce high impact software-enabled products. The Practice area working in alignment with Belatrix’s Agile Software Development approach, allows for “fail fast” which sounds the alarm on product quality issues before project investments have gone past the point of no return and sunk cost. In most cases, Belatrix’s QA engineers are previous developers so they bring that mindset to the QA process, and are able to see both issues and fixes, allowing for expedited progress.
Belatrix’s investment in the ISTQB process extends the expertise of its QA Engineers and enhances the value they bring to the overall development process. The ISTQB certification process covers expertise development ranging from product testing design to test automation. Belatrix provides software product testing as part of their overall development as well as a standalone offering.
“Participating in the ISQTB process allows our engineers to bring a higher level of services to our clients,” said Monica Colombo, Director of Belatrix Software’s QA & Testing Practice. Ms. Colombo, an internationally recognized expert in Quality Assurance is also a tenured professor at National Technological University in Mendoza, Argentina.
