Great strides have been made in leveraging existing legacy services and systems through SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) and the use of web services. The benefits of this shift in emphasis (away from heavily customizing or replacing legacy systems to creating common services) are clear from a cost and resource efficiency point of view.
There have also been advances in delivery methods, including agile and lean development processes. These advances have placed emphasis on a more fluid and iterative delivery model. For these technology and process advances to be fully realized, equal advances are required in testing methodologies. NMQA's unique AD-AIT approach addresses this need.
We work closely in partnership with our customers to define and agree which programmes of change will benefit from our approach. We select the best fit toolset and build the business case with our customers for appropriate investment in these tools and in our methodology. We deliver programme specific, tailored, test automation architecture strategies and plans. We then provide the Test Delivery Management and the toolset Subject Matter Experts to realise our vision on our customer's behalf.
Our methodology ensures that testing objectives can be met in spite of unavailability of key components, and in the face of delayed deliveries of infrastructure and development. Automated testing of core functions delivers value early, we then iteratively increase coverage. Our effective use of simulation and isolation allow testing to start early, continue in spite of disruptions, and complete early. This approach enables a modular approach to testing, bypassing dependency on both upstream and downstream systems.
We can 'Test any time'. With the right automation architecture, tools, and expertise, testing can start with whatever is available by dealing with "islands of certainty". If you are interested in understanding how NMQA reduced the costs of testing on a single programme by £2 Million, or how we reduced time taken to deliver from 2 years to 10 months or how we saved an estimated £5 million against the costs of programme delivery, then please contact NMQA now. It is a given that NMQA yield a high return on investment.
