Test process consulting.

Enterprises have realized the importance of testing in mitigating risks to the business and delivery of their products and services. They are also finding that testing can be expensive and time consuming. Testing should provide quantifiable results about the level of uncertainty of a product / application. It must provide meaningful information to the business about risks & impacts for effective decision making. The dilemma most organizations are facing is to determine how much testing is enough and when do we need more?

TCoE (Test Center of Excellence) is the path to success. TCoE will set the frameworks and standards which help business and technology teams determine testing needs customized to the current situation or application under test (AUT). The standard / TCoE framework enables management to understand the risks involved when deciding on removing certain delivery processes for that AUT.
