Software Testing Consulting Services

Planning, Testing and Quality Process Consulting Based on Critical Testing Processes Plans, Advice, and Assistance in Improvement

Did you know that, according to the US National Institute for Standards and Technology, the US economy alone loses as much as $60 billion per year due to poor software testing? Software testing industry expert Capers Jones reports that poor testing is one of the four leading causes of schedule and budget overruns and outright cancellation of projects. Poor testing takes many forms, from purely ad hoc, unmeasurable testing to testing by under skilled, unqualified staff to testing that simply fails to meet targets for effectiveness or efficiency--or worse yet has no targets for effectiveness or efficiency.
