What is QA and why it is important?

Definition of QA: Quality Assurance (QA) is a way of preventing mistakes or defects in manufactured products and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers.

Software Quality Assurance (SQA) involves the entire software development process – monitoring and improving the process, making sure that any agreed-upon standards and procedures are followed, and ensuring that problems are found and dealt with.

The main goals of QA during software development are to develop error free software, to determine if there is any variation from software requirements, to use the software in a real time environment, and to provide confidence in the software, among other things.

The QA process is mandatory in a software development cycle to assure quality in both the workflow and the final product. To have no QA activity is to increase the risk that unacceptable code will be released.
