Branko Milikić, CEO, Sixsentix Serbia

New Approach to Testing Software

The era of digital transformation, of DevOps, demands the rethinking of software testing methodologies and tools

Sixsentix Serbia is a leading provider of the nearshore software testing services. Our unique risk-based testing approach and QACube visual analytics for DevOps, provide business with unprecedented quality and transparency across software delivery projects for faster time-to-market.

What are all the services that Sixsentix Serbia offers clients?

– The company is on a mission to change the software development industry in order to improve software quality and DevOps performance.

Our delivery model is flexible for large scale, complex or speciality testing services with the right combination of onsite, nearshore and blended resources.

The result is effective and efficient software QA, where and when it is most needed, with the testing outcomes at significantly lower costs and scalability to help our customers to keep pace with digitalisation. These customers include some of the largest global banks, financial services, insurance, telecom providers and others.

Companies developing software today are confronted by demands for faster deliveries, with the simultaneous imperative that products work without error. How does this trend impact the area of testing?

– Enterprises are undergoing a massive digital transformation and business processes had already grown so complex that we could no longer test everything.

With a traditional approach, clients are running out of time, money and resources, and still cannot meet their testing objectives for high software quality. Only the critical defects caught early in the testing process help and eliminate rework costs and provide assurance of a smooth and successful Go Live. Software QA needs to follow a risk-based approach to test planning, in which the most effective test cases are deployed in the right priority to achieve the desired risk-based coverage.

This is precisely what Sixsentix offers

This is precisely what we offer. The Sixsentix Software Agile Testing (SWAT) includes a proactive, innovative and fundamentally different approach, which enables our customers to assess their aggregated risk coverage from the business, technical, performance and compliance perspectives and, thus, improve greatly the feedback cycle to mitigate any project and product risk.

You expanded your team significantly last year. Tell us something about the profiles of your candidates, employment plans and how you handle difficulties during the hiring process?

– At the moment there are 170 employees at Sixsentix Serbia, 240 across all locations. For the last three years, we’ve tripled the number of employees in Serbia, and we plan to continue this trend by hiring 50 more employees in 2019.

Apart from master’s degrees in IT and Mathematics, the ideal educational background and experience of our candidates’ is in banking, financial services and telecom, given that most of our clients come from these industries. It is not always easy to find experienced, top QA Managers in Serbia.

We bridge that gap by growing specialists through our SWAT University – we invest heavily in training and developing our own people, as they truly are our greatest asset. We are active when it comes to cooperation with the University of Novi Sad and are planning to cooperate with the University of Belgrade in the future, along with expanding our Belgrade office.
