The Importance of Quality Assurance and Independent Validation Testing 
Quality assurance, an often overlooked and understaffed function, is critical to the success of every software implementation. Independent Validation Testing (IVT) means having an experienced team and an end-to-end process in place enabling your organization to

  • deliver a comprehensive, independent verification and validation audit

  • validate results with third-party testing

  • perform full life cycle testing

Software quality assurance includes all aspects of testing – regression testing, system testing, system integration testing, software integration testing, automated testing, automation testing and application testing -- with software testing tools, automated testing tools and importantly, QA training managed by an experienced team of software quality assurance engineers.

Quality Assurance is critical to the success of every software implementation.

  1. Standardized
    Standardized QA processes, practices and tools improve predictability, reducing risk and time-to-market.

  2. Integrated
    Integrated QA practices, tools and frameworks contribute to predictability, reducing risk and time-to-market.

  3. Dedicated
    Dedicated software personnel with category expertise ensure efficient execution of QA activities reducing risk.

 

QA Challenges in the Enterprise
Real life examples of poorly conducted QA and IVT are evident everywhere, including organizations of every size, as well as the government. There are many reasons why Product Development and Marketing have a difficult time managing QA and IVT projects:

  • Frequently changing requirements
     
  • Reduced product lifecycles
     
  • Lack of funds to hire QA expertise or to train QA staff
     
  • Increasing technical obsolescence

"We needed a team to help our inhouse developers evaluate production loads and identify bottlenecks in our product development process.  We weren’t looking to replace our team.  We wanted to supplement their skill set and to provide expert guidance in Quality Assurance Test Management. SDG exceeded our expectations and delivered huge wins in QA."
