Sapphire Five Consulting offers testing solutions ranging from functional to Interoperability to performance testing.
Our established testing methodology that applies best practices within the testing discipline help companies test software during the Software Development Lifecycle. These formal methods ensure consistency and adequacy of test case design and execution.
Our approach to testing ensures that the maximum number of defects are discovered and resolved before production implementation or release to the customer.
Sapphire Five Consultants will work with your Quality Assurance / Software Testing Teams or with a Project Team to agree on the testing processes required for your specific business. This phase includes documenting the scope of the project requirements and estimating the timelines for each deliverable.
Process Documentation, Training, Implementation and Handholding Phase
Processes will be documented and agreed upon as per the scope document and project plan. Training on the processes will be included as part of the implementation and handholding phase.
Measurements will be included as part of the project. The measurements will enable Line Managers; Test Managers and project managers manage and track delivery from the Quality Assurance / Software Testing team. Progress on the testing process project will also be measured.
As an additional service processes can be evaluated after a three or six month period to ensure the implementation was a success and to review the processes for enhancements. All evaluations will be done with the view of moving towards CMMI accreditation when your testing team is ready.
Our Test Effectiveness Assessment follows a similar flow as our Process Consulting Service, where we will first scope the work or processes that need to be evaluated. A project plan will be documented and agreed with our clients.
An approach will be recommended for the improvement of current processes or closing gaps within your software testing processes or hand-off processes between development and testing, configuration management and testing, release management and testing.
Test Effectiveness Assessments are done with the view of moving your testing team forward, towards CMMI accreditation.
