In the grand scheme of things, you'd never think software (and software testing/QA) shares any similarity with an appliance like a washing machine. Well, according to our President and CEO, Jeff Van Fleet, perhaps they're more alike than you think.
As thought leaders in software testing/QA, we like to keep ourselves up-to-date on the latest cutting-edge insights and industry trends. That’s why we sent our best and brightest to StarEast 2017. Here’s the second half of their two-part report. (Check out part one here!)
Do you want to take control of your software projects? Our upcoming webinar, “The Power of Testing Assessments: Keeping Your Projects on Course”, is a great place to start.

Here at Lighthouse, we’re awful passionate about software testing and quality assurance. But even as thought leaders, we like to keep ourselves up-to-date on the latest cutting-edge insights and industry trends. In that spirit, here are some of the most interesting things we heard at StarEast 2017.
For some IT leaders, software development projects can feel like an endless cacophony of defect-related rework and delays—especially for people involved In software testing and QA. But as frustration mounts, pinpointing a path to improvement can prove difficult. Our solution? Start with quality exit criteria.
Everyone’s had at least one software project release off schedule and over budget. But while delays may seem like a ubiquitous hardship for software testing/QA teams, they don’t need to be. In our upcoming June 29th webinar, we’ll delve into why projects so frequently get blown off course, and break down the steps you can take to get them back on track.
Every software project is judged by four factors: time-to-market, agility, quality, and cost. But while those are typically seen as your developers' domain, aren't your software testers and QA engineers the ones really responsible for them?
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. So if your software projects are releasing off schedule, over budget, or without their expected scope and/or quality, why not sign up for our upcoming webinar and learn how to prevent the root cause of software failures?
If the 3 Perils of Software Development™—Defects, Delays, and Dollars—are regularly driving your projects off schedule and over budget, getting your QA and testing team back on course can be hard. That’s why applying a metrics-based testing methodology is so important—it’s the most reliable course correction there is.
Talk to anyone well-versed in eCommerce, and you’ll likely hear the same refrain: the user experience (UX) is king. But while no one’s disputing that, it’s important to note that the reign of UX has also signaled the ascension of another two-letter acronym: QA—or as it’s also known, quality assurance.
