Connected cars, artificial intelligence, internet of things, robots ... we live in a world of permanent connectivity and, therefore, it is vital that we are also well connected. In fact, numerous studies have indicated that networking is the key to 90% of the company's success. More specifically, some, such as the one conducted by the Stanford Research Institute, indicate that the success of a company is determined by 12.5% ??based on the knowledge and experience of employees and 87.5% on the ability they have to interact with other people, both inside and outside the company.



The first edition of QA&TEST Safety and Security aims to be the ideal forum for the exchange of experiences, initiatives and knowledge. In fact, all the attendees to the QA&TEST conferences during its 18-year history highlight its ideal size and structure to promote networking, with innumerable opportunities to expand our network while improving our knowledge with tools and methodologies that allow us to create more robust solutions. Certainly, attendees to QA&TEST Safety and Security will be able to take from the conference very useful and lasting over time professional relationships while knowing what is being done in other companies and sectors and how to implement those techniques or methodologies in their activity. Taking part in QA&TEST we will find the advice and the necessary motivation to face the new challenges that technology presents.

Nowadays there are many conferences whose topic is cybersecurity but QA&TEST Safety and Security is not a cybersecurity conference but addresses a specific problem that is essential if we want to develop "smart" solutions (Smart energy, Smart connected car ...) such as the aspects of Safety and Security. In most cases these two terms are treated as separate disciplines and the approach to both concepts or requirements is also done separately, with different teams involved in different phases of system development. The integration of both factors is not sufficiently explored or considered. In fact, measures adopted to mitigate risks that affect safety can be contradictory with security requirements and vice versa.

Currently it is not easy to access methodologies, techniques, tools or standards that allow us to effectively face the technical, regulatory, organizational and market challenges that such integration demands and thus, as a result of this reflection, the QA&TEST Safety and Security conference was born, with the aim of offering our attendees a meeting point between professionals from different sectors to have access to the approaches and good practices  in the different sectors, with the ultimate aim of being able to develop more competitive and robust solutions for the market with controlled levels of effort and cost.

A track on Rails & Roads in QA&TEST 2018

Aware of the importance of embedded software in this sector, QA&TEST 2018 will dedicate a complete track to Rails & Roads.

The keynote speaker Michiel Vroon will open the track “Testing road tunnels in the Netherlands” and this complex infrastructural project will be a perfect starting point for the Rail and Roads track.



Throughout his 20 years of experience in the world of testing, Michiel has covered all kinds of functions, such as test automation engineer, analyst, director and testing advisor. In his presentation he will explain his experience as test director of road tunnel safety systems, which include up to 30 different systems, such as fire safety, traffic monitoring, air ventilation, lighting, etc., and all of them should work together through a separate software layer. In his keynote, Michiel will show which are the best practices when facing these challenges and how to propose a strategy, based on his experience along several projects.

The Committee has released three of the names that will make up the track Rail and Roads: Daniel Nilsson, Michal Krzeslak and Madeline Cheah. The Swedish Daniel Nilsson, from QualityMinds company, will focus his talk on test automation and model-based testing within the automotive industry, where the complexity of software is constantly increasing, and where it is essential to review the way of working with tests. It is necessary to look at new methods and new technologies and review the strategies. He will base his presentation on a real case in which his team was involved and will make known the main conclusions and lessons learned.

Michal Krzeslak, meanwhile, will focus on the embedded testing for railway vehicles. He will present the use case and the lessons learned during one of the most important testing projects of his career: the testing of the main driver software for railway vehicles. It was essential to automated test of complex functions related with tractive/braking effort calculation and monitoring.

And the third presentation of this track will be done by Madeline Cheah, whose doctorate in Automotive Cybersecurity certifies her as an expert in systematic security evaluations on automotive interfaces. Throughout her presentation, she will show how the difficulty is compounded by operational and design factors and practices that feature in the automotive industry.

SQS visits, one more year, the Mobile World Congress

Between the 26th February  and the 1st of March , the Mobile World Congress was held in Barcelona and one more year SQS was there presenting our set of services for the telecommunications industry.

In words of Begoña Laibarra, general manager of SQS, MWC is for us an unavoidable appointment every year: it helps us to establish business contacts of great value for the future, and is "inspiring and very motivating” for the company. “we have known new needs in the sector which will help us to adapt our offer to the  market, "says Laibarra. "The connected world, 5G or mobiles among others, need the quality and security to access the market in a faster and safer way".



We are a specialised software testing and quality company, carrying out verification and validation activities for all types of systems, domains and environments, so our participation in the MWC has been an excellent way for us to know trends and adapt our offer to the existing market needs. For example, within our range of services, we test artificial intelligence systems and machine learning, this is a trend that the market is demanding and where we have enormous potential, especially due to our experience in tests automation.

In terms of mobile tests, we have a service developed by us, Q-Mobile, which allows us to offer a certification service for mobile applications and which is traditionally very well received by our visitors at the MWC booth. Another of our outstanding services during this congress has been the 24x7 monitoring platform. This is an ideal service for those companies that want to know in a simple and economic way the main metrics that determine the quality of their presence on the Internet.

Our visitors also showed great interest in the service that we offer as accredited laboratory according to UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 for load and performance testing. These tests will help us to predict the behavior of the system and, in addition, the methodology of the SQS Laboratory has the guarantee of a proven and accredited quality.

Therefore, and summarising, we value our participation this year in MWC as a success since we have returned to our work in the offices of SQS with new ideas, potential new lines of business to develop and future new customers.

New features in our TestWorkFlow tool

TWF is a tool designed to assist us throughout the process of validation and verification of software, allowing us to automate tests, automatically generate test cases and manage requirements, tests and documentation.



TWF allows us to run tests in embedded environments (eg PLCs) but, in response to the demand of our customers who request to be able to assemble and control more complex environments, the new version of the tool reinforces this ability to control and launch tests in embedded systems: Currently, with the new functionalities, from the same equipment we can control different HW input and output devices. These inputs and outputs can be analogue or digital and the communication protocols with which we can work are varied.

To summarise, the new version of TWF allows us to control complex HW and SW environments.

SQS, accredited laboratory to perform load and performance testing

We are pleased to inform you that since last July SQS has obtained recognition as an accredited laboratory to perform load and performance testing. This accreditation was granted by ENAC according to the criteria followed by UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025, as an international recognition. Thus, we have become the first and only accredited laboratory in Spain to carry out this kind of software testing and one of the few in the world.


SQS has a strong international presence and this accreditation will allow us to strengthen our position in this market as it demonstrates the validity of our method and indicates that the results of our tests are comparable with those obtained by any other laboratory with similar accreditation within the world. 

Getting this accreditation required a major effort made by the whole professional team and we are currently working to extend this accreditation to other testing processes. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need additional information.
