    activities supporting software quality assurance

    Hi!
    I`m looking for some brand new trends (inovations) for supporting software quality assurance (some description of it). If you could give me some clue where to look for it, books websites. Perhaps you applied "modern performance to support SQA"
    P.S. Sorry if i posted it in wrong place

    Why "brand new" - why not "tried and trusted".

    Re: activities supporting software quality assurance

    "Tried and trusted" ways to ensure quality are absolotely OK!!, but I`m doing research for my diploma and among others there is a chapter about "modern activities supporting SQA". Did search about critical systems (medicine). I need some More examples...perhaps NASA. All I know right now about "modern activities...." is that all concern is placed in security of software. Please correct me if I`m wrong. Thanks

    Re: activities supporting software quality assurance

    My far from humble opinion is that 95% of the time when someone rolls out a nice shiny-new process, method, whatever, for software development in general, it tends to strongly resemble the essential concepts of a process that went out of favour some time ago - OR - it is an attempt to refurbish and repackage an existing process so someone else can make money from it.

    The needs remain the same. Broadly speaking, the tasks remain the same. Technology will change the face of it and possibly the method of execution, however, the core concepts remain.

    The 5% of the time when a "new" concept really *is* new there is a period of pushing it aside by the majority, a handfull look at it and say it is worth considering (and then do), some will grasp it as the silver bullet they've been looking for, and a handfull will be willing to try it on a limited basis.

    QA tends to follow the same general path - with adaptations for the role we play.

    In short, most of the "new" stuff is little more than the "tried and trusted" that has been spun, wheedled and repackaged into something else. Technology may allow us to do things differently - but differently is not new.

    Re: activities supporting software quality assurance

    Sailor - a modern activity maybe referring to automation of the testing effort, although it has been around for many years companies are still trying to automate many manual testing activities.

    Re: activities supporting software quality assurance

    IMO Security, just like SOA (service oriented architecture), Workflow/BPM(business process management) are the development/architecture technologies and also performance engineering is not achieved maturity (compared with relational DBs, scriping and programming languages, etc). That's why testing them tend to be mentioned under "modern activities".

    Re: activities supporting software quality assurance

    Maybe something along the lines of where QA is finding a place in Agile or Scrum? They are not new processes, but I would imagine that QA's placement in them might be considered new since they are Dev-focused processes.
