Software Quality Assurance (SQA) is a set of activities to ensure quality in software engineering processes. It ensures that developed software meets and complies with the quality specifications defined or standardized. SQA is an ongoing process within the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) that routinely monitors the developed software to ensure that it meets the desired quality measures.
In most types of software development, SQA practices are implemented regardless of the underlying software development model being used. SQA incorporates and implements software test methodologies to test the software. Instead of checking for quality after completion, SQA will test for quality in each development phase until the software is complete. With SQA, the software development process only moves into the next phase once the current / previous phase meets the required quality standards. SQA generally works on one or more industry standards that help build software quality guidelines and implementation strategies.

Cloud Services & Lean IT
Technology is evolving at such a rapid pace to the point that, it could be out of date before even going live. It has enabled faster change and progress, resulting in an acceleration in the rate of change until eventually, it becomes exponential. As financial technologies evolve, Cloud services and Lean IT strategy at GTN Technologies bring significant disruptors to the financial industry that continue to shape businesses in the age of digital transformation.
As a result, our network infrastructure has evolved from converged infrastructure to hyper-converged. This supports the transition into robust Cloud Computing services for trading platforms that support real-time financial market data feeds and business transactions. The strategies also extend across the information security domain by bringing cloud-hosted unified security management, and Directory-as-a-Service for corporate identity device management. Enhanced security compliance in production financial platforms resulted in us being awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard
GTN Technologies recognizes that technology-based careers don’t always change at the same speed that technology advances, however, they must evolve to meet tomorrow’s business needs amidst changing times. Thus, career roles will not stay the same inside the team either and it is for this reason that our Infrastructure and Lean IT teams in the organization are constantly learning, out of necessity if not desire.
