2023 year-end recap: a journey through the a1qa milestones
As the curtains draw on 2023, it’s time to cast a retrospective gaze over the a1qa highlights during the past twelve months.
Let’s embark on this journey of reflection together!
Celebrating 20th anniversary
This year, we have commemorated a notable milestone — our 20th anniversary. Over this time, we have expanded from a small IT company to a global QA and software testing provider, helping clients attain their desired objectives through independent quality assurance.
Continuously growing and expanding the horizons
In a strategic move to better serve our global customers and provide them with tailored QA services, we expanded our footprint, opening new offices in diverse regions, including Central Asia, South Asia, Latin America, and beyond.
Moreover, we’ve reached 15,000+ followers on our LinkedIn community, serving as a testament to the growing trust of clients and partners in our industry leadership.
Exchanging multi-year QA expertise
As we strive to spread QA knowledge far and wide, we organize exclusive roundtables for IT executives and share our experiences on external platforms.
Our online roundtable sessions help attendees exchange personal cases and best practices while delving into pressing QA topics, such as automated and shift-left testing, QA trends, ways of QA budget optimization, QA for complex software, to name a few. The insights help attendees improve IT products’ quality, mitigate business risks, speed up applications releases, and strengthen their competitive edge.
This year, we have also launched a1qa tech voice series — a1qa’s executives share their in-depth experience in quality engineering, innovation, and management. They have discussed the pros and cons of much-debated technologies, IT leadership, and ways to ensure seamless performance over the peak end of year sales period.
Sharing valuable QA insights at the international events and conferences
a1qa experts attend global events to highlight the pivotal role of QA for modern software and foster collaborative relationships that transcend geographical boundaries.
