As focus on quality rises, so does the need to perform testing in an industrialised and cost-efficient way.
Traditional QA under pressure
Many businesses continue to run dispersed testing operations. For Quality Assurance, this can mean:
- Little or no visibility into application quality across projects, so deployment decisions made on incomplete information
- Inability to fully control and measure application quality, leading to higher operating costs and delays in delivery schedules
- Teams don't have the supporting tools to share and reuse assets and knowledge.
A Virtual and centralised testing command centre
Our TCoE lets you to manage all your resources more efficiently to ensure quality across applications and build a working culture that better focuses on quality and collaboration. We use our TMap® Testing Methodology and integrate it with HPE Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) technology to provide a comprehensive software environment that shares assets and provides full traceability.
A Testing Centre of Excellence (TCoE) brings you these benefits
- Optimised use of existing resources: QA budgets, tools, environments and people
- Faster time-to-market: Test times reduce by 30% and test automation levels of 50-70%
- Cost efficiency: Typical resource cost reduction is 35% over a 3-year time frame
- Optimised application quality and performance: Reduce risk of failure and leakage of high-severity defects to under 2% and improved customer experience
- Tighter alignment: Align quality effort more tightly with business needs by defining and measuring KPIs
- Increased agility: Respond to new business challenges better and allocate your quality team’s time by priority
Together with HPE, we plan, implement, and execute your TCoE, using a phased approach; integrating HPE Application Lifecycle Management, aligned to your company’s readiness for transition and your business goals.
