QA & Software Testing Services
We have developed our Metisure© framework to engender total confidence in clients by providing comprehensive support across all the component areas of software quality and testing. The framework provides the reference structure for delivering our range of Quality and Testing Services.
The management of Test Environments is an important part of overall IT Quality Assurance and Testing governance and has a significant influence on test effectiveness and efficiency.
The use of the right toolset in an organisation to support the Software Quality Assurance and Testing process is a key enabler of an efficient and effective operating model.
The SQA and Testing process begins at the point where the dimensions of the change are being defined. This is normally at scoping and high-level requirements.
Quality Centre of Excellence (QCoE)
Centres of Excellence, or Competency or Capability Centres as they are also called, are increasingly being used by organisations to focus a team with a particular set of competencies or capabilities in a particular function, to lead and support best practice to drive business and customer value.
We offer a variety of engagement models to meet client needs. These range from fixed cost models where delivery to agreed scope and timelines is guaranteed to Time and Material based assignments.
Vantage and our off-shore partners endeavour to make the best use of technology to provide continuous Testing Services Deployment at a cost effective price point. One of the key challenges facing software development managers today is to reduce the cost of developing and testing software while maintaining consistent quality.
