SIT UAT harmonization is a concept where by both teams have synergy from begining of STLC phase. SIT team shares test cases with them. UAT team reviews it, Any duplicate test cases between SIT and UAT are removed. This results in both teams executing unique test cases and thereby resulting in cost savings.


Any white paper on above concept?

I have had a hard time finding any kind of testing issues/guides for testing Windows 8 Surface Pro, any help?

For one of the several applications I test, we're importing a significant amount of data from one database to another.  My PM has asked for me to research some "Best Practices" on how best to verify that the data imported correctly.  Do you have any suggestions on where I could find some "Best Practices" to support my testing effort?



I am trying to make a proposal for automation testing of a e-learning website.

Our team is looking to implement new metrics and I'm a fan of capturing DRE; however, I'm curious how others are calculating DRE within their organizations?  Specifically, when implementing this metric for an existing project that has already had numerous releases and has a number of existing defects in backlog, some of which will end up pushed to future releases and then probably pushed again.

I am searching some articles about sofware installation/uninstallation. Which are things what must have tested, best practices, creating test cases and so on.

Thanks for help :)

Can someone please point me in the right direction to find out more information about what the role of a QA Engineer is like within an Agile team?  Books, articles, videos etc anything to help me understand what the role is like, what is expected of the QA individual etc.  My reseach so far has made it difficult to identify which parts are QA and hich are Dev.

Have have no QA experience but I am think of applying for an internal position, which would be in an Agile team.


Many thanks for any advice, hints and tips :0)
