However, while the software development landscape continues to evolve, “many companies expect and want several different things within the QA arena,” states Ruslan Desyatnikov, CEO and Founder, QA Mentor. “Companies want to heal their broken QA testing processes, identify the deficiencies in the process and methodology and improve the deployment.” New York, NY-based QA Mentor—a premier provider of unique and cost effective QA and software testing services and solutions—comes to the fore to address the needs of such companies by increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of testing while ensuring quality.
The firm’s Application Architecture Inspection Services provides the necessary expertise and oversight to examine the architecture design of the customer’s platform and applications. “Our experienced architects can provide an independent and non-biased assessment or view of any architecture or any potential future design from the development perspective,” says Desyatnikov.

Training and Seminar Service, which features an e-learning portal, further helps customers to learn about the different topics related to QA.

QA Mentor has succeeded in helping several clients overcome their challenges and achieve efficiency. In an implementation highlight, a big financial company wanted to prepare test cases for their legacy systems. However, these legacy systems had no requirements or any documentation. Owing to the distinct ability to customize solutions for the client’s needs, QA Mentor built a special framework to collect what was needed for the test cases. By distributing a series of questionnaires and interviewing the support guys and development teams, the firm gathered the required information. The data was converted into mini-requirements initially and then finally into detailed test cases for execution. In the end, QA Mentor helped the client to create detailed documentation of their legacy systems and a disciplined approach to their requirements and test cases.
“We aim to bring quality to the forefront of software development and become the central figure in QA,” affirms Desyatnikov. As such, QA Mentor is planning to expand its footprint and establish testing centers around the globe identifying low cost areas to offer cost effective services.
