Quality assurance is a very important part of software engineering process, focused on maintaining quality and adherence to specific technical standards.
Software quality assurance is one area where off-shoring to India has worked well for the traditional Software Development Life Cycle or SDLC. Software engineers in the United States check in code at the end of the day, while offshore quality assurance analysts test it overnight.
In a more agile development environment, quality assurance or QA usually requires more interaction with a software engineering team. This means that the significantly different time zones involved in QA outsourcing to places like India can be an issue. In addition, the level of offshore quality assurance testing is sometimes fairly simple, with integration and regression testing being conducted by the onshore IT team.
