Put Apps to the Test
Understanding the overall cost of applications testing within a project can be tricky. A variety of metrics and indicators must be closely tracked, and progress must be monitored daily, if not hourly.
Adding complexity to the mix are defects, rework and new or forgotten requirements that must suddenly be included just prior to release.
Increasingly, teams are turning to an industry solution that enables a complete, accurate and in-depth analysis of the overall cost of applications testing. It’s called Testing as a Service (TaaS). This consumption-based, outsourced delivery model uses an offshore testing team to produce standardized applications test deliverables, such as test plans and test cases, for a fixed cost.
The process is quick and simple. When an organization selects the as-a-Service testing approach, a TaaS forecast is created to map the testing demand visible at the time in terms of test units (Tus). Based on that exercise, the projected delivery capacity is made available to your organization.
The TaaS forecast can be updated, based on project priority changes, frequently and the delivery capacity will adapt on demand.
Application testing is now a vital element in any good development lifecycle. With Testing as a Service, your organization can reduce development time and costs and support the delivery of more secure and reliable enterprise applications.
