TEST CONSULTING

The quality of your software is the driving force behind your business. Faulty components produces higher work around costs in your operations. Use the test consulting expertise of EXXETA for your next software project to identify potential sources of error as early in the design phase. Optimise your testing processes, consistently increase the quality of your software and minimise continuous costs.

Your challenges

High software quality is the foundation that enables IT-based business processes to run smoothly. The performance and reliability of software gives you the freedom to focus on your primary business in the face of increased competition. Errors that occurs in the conception phase of big and complex software projects, have an even more adverse effect upon completion. The subsequent adjustment increases cost and delays the necessary use of software that is needed in the day-to-day business operations.

  • Coordination of tests across several sub-projects and interfaces
  • Adjustment of testing procedures in the case of agile development methods
  • Missing or inadequate requirements documentation
  • Broad test coverage with limited use of time and resources
  • Inefficient test execution as a result of a low degree of automation
  • Required integration of testing activities in the software life cycle
  • Project participants must be brought to the same level of methodological expertise
  • They have to be able to cope with the demands and challenges of the project in addition to their normal line of work
  • Create and communicate test cases that are reproducible
  • Development and launch of high quality software
  • Customers and users expect faultless software solutions

Our offer

With our certified consulting approach according to the ISTQB standard (International Software Testing Qualifications Board), we start as early as the conception phase of software projects to identify early sources of error. Our systematic approach, which ranges from organization to implementation and execution, ensures high efficiency throughout the entire testing process. Through our innovative test case design, we achieve a high degree of reusability at different test levels. A high degree of standardization ensures that the complexity can be mastered and the overall software development costs can be reduced.
