Purposes of the testing framework we can deliver for your business
Above all else, the quality assurance framework that we can offer advocates a risk-based approach to testing activities. Focusing effort on the areas that are highest risk will drive what is considered “good enough”.to ensure the solutions that we deliver to our customers add value to their operations. The framework sets out a number of methods to ensure that our development and testing activities yield products which are robust and reliable and continue to contribute to the reputational success for any business in UK, France, USA and worldwide.
This framework also serves other purposes from different groups:
* As a record of practices in use and the controls in place to ensure safe, reliable delivery to the production environment.
* To embed a shared quality mindset and impart the tools and methods used to achieve this to both current and new team members alike.
* To provide the confidence that the teams are all aligned to the notion of quality delivery of incremental value to development software products
* To help the journey to agile methods for other groups within your company and provide a framework that they can adopt and modify to suit their needs.
