You can only predict things after they occur
"You can only predict things after they occur" This quote was attributed to Eugene Ionescu in the source I had.  Maybe we could use it the next time someone asks how testing or Quality Assurance is going to go in the future.

One of the major aspects of Quality Assurance is to gather up statistics on what occurred last time and use that to predict the future.  While no one can accurately predict the future until after it occurs, the more knowledge we have of what occurred in the past, the closer we can get to estimating. what might occur in the future.

Software Testing solves problems for yesterday and today.

Quality Assurance solves problems coming tomorrow!

Writing your own Ticket

This would seem like the perfect success story.  Write your own ticket and you can have what you want.  This has come up frequently in the last few years.  Organisations are delegating the Quality Assurance, Testing, and Test Planning to the organisation supplying the software or solution. It seems like a perfect recipe for success.  Just test what you already have in the software and have promised to supply and everything will be okay.   

The reality is not quite what it seems.  The Test Plan is written, the testcases are completed and executed and then comes review time.  At this late date, the client suddenly decides this is not what they want or that the testing was incomplete or insufficient.

With no warning the solution provider is now scrambling.  

Don't get caught in this!

The solution is the same as before.  Anticipate what is likely to be asked for and prepare for it.  You may not anticipate everything, you may not tell the client all that you have done, but you will be ready when they ask.
Quality Assurance Solutions

Quality Assurance evaluations are difficult sometimes.  They seem nebulous to some people and hard to launch to others.  However, they need to be done. 

Do you know what Evaluations are  available?
Do you know what you want from your Evaluation?
Can you find the correct person to do the Evaluation?

The answers to the above three questions will impact your efficiency and the efficiency of your organisation for years to come.
  1. More efficient IT service saving money.
  2. More effective IT service saving money.
  3. Resolves client dissatisfaction resulting in more business.
  4. Fixes where current processes are not working.

We know what to ask and what to do with the answers.  Contact us to improve your ROI.
