The holiday season is the high point to get the tasks done and take some decisions to plan new ones.
This year, we developed a proprietary test automation platform, opened a new office in the USA, and expanded QA expertise.
We had a very fruitful year and want to share how many steps we have taken in 2019.
Making much more every day
With 800+ talented and passionate QA engineers on board, we have broadened the horizon and opened a new office in Boston that became another venue for promising QA professionals to be closer to our partners, colleagues, and friends.
We are excited to say that our specialists have developed an in-house open-source platform for test automation ‒ Aquality Automation. It relies on AI elements and can be implemented in Java, C#, JS, Python, etc. helping solve testing issues in one place thus optimizing QA costs and decreasing duration.
Enhancing knowledge at global exhibitions and conferences
Within the culture of excellence, we believe that among the most effective ways to expand knowledge in emerging technologies is to visit global events. This year, we have joined nine exhibitions and conferences to bring best practices in place.
a1qa became the member of the world’s largest tech event – Web Summit 2019 in Lisbon. It united IT front-runners from all over the world to delve into AI, BaaS, blockchain, and many other issues.
London was remembered by several striking events. We visited the London Tech Week – Europe’s biggest festival of innovations – and the National Software Testing Conference to stay up to date with the QA trends.
At CIOsynergy in New York, during the round-table meetings, a1qa team discussed the tricky aspects of digital transformation, customer experience, AI-powered technologies, and more.
The MWC19 in Los Angeles was another venue where a1qa experts met with industry high priests and influencers to talk about 5G, IoT, AI, Big Data, and other technologies driving the telco industry today.
a1qa representatives were delighted to meet you at these events and show the pros in embedding QA processes in the current project scope.
Entering world rankings
Each year, we do our utmost to prove our place in the software testing market to make the QA world better and deliver you the added value.
In 2019, GoodFirms, the independent research and reviews platform, included a1qa in the list of Top Software Testing Companies.
a1qa entered the ‘Top 20 Leading Software Testing Providers 2019’ ranking by the leading voice of the industry – TEST Magazine.
Furthermore, a1qa was included in the global Top 1000 companies list – that unites leading companies in the B2B sector – and in Top Software Application Testing Firms list compiled by Clutch, an independent research agency.
Sharing QA expertise
In the ninth time, we have organized and conducted the traditional QA conference. More than 350 engineers and newcomers met in one place to discuss blockchain technologies, security, performance testing, test automation, and others.
We opened a series of tailored workshops for executives that have already been held in Lisbon, London, and other cities and covered test automation and security issues. Due to the interactive character of these events, all the participants received thoughtful and technically justified answers to their QA-related queries.
We are grateful to all our partners, colleagues, and friends for staying with us throughout this majestic year full of bright events and important discoveries.
The a1qa team wishes you the happiest holidays. Let the upcoming year bring you the desired business outcomes and new challenges.
