QA & Testing Services

For years, the quality aspects of application development has mostly been an after-thought; it’s usually the last conversation most organizations have right before deploying their applications into production and it is, most often, the key topic discussed during “Lessons Learned” sessions. When it becomes important enough, the time and resource allocations provided by most organizations for this very critical function, is rarely ever enough to reap the benefits that can be derived from having a fully funded Quality Assurance and Testing function.
Time has changed since the Waterfall Methodology where Testing is aligned to the last leg of the software development life cycle when it’s usually too late to effect positive change. Many organizations are learning either from experience or due to pressures from the ever-changing IT landscape that there has to be corresponding Software Quality Assurance and Testing activities aligned to each project and software development phase.

Quality Control is a set of activities designed to evaluate a developed system and software testing is the process of executing a system with the intent of finding defects.
For us to effectively do this, Tezza uses special tools and habits to help us achieve quality in every way. The types of tests we provide are:

  • Functional testing
  • Static Testing (Requirements/Document Reviews)
  • Unit Testing
  • Integration Testing

Educating your staff is like reinvesting in stock that always has good dividends. If you want a successful business, a loyal team and if you want to save time, effort and money, then invest in educating your employees.
The software world is constantly changing and these changes have huge impacts on your software deliverables. Customers are demanding more versatile, easy-to-use, quality software. How do you keep your testers, project managers, developers etc. on top of the game? They need to constantly update their testing skills or they will be left behind.
Our training services include:

• Transfer of knowledge to software professionals and managers so that they gain thorough knowledge of testing approaches that can be integrated into the software life cycle.
• Through hands-on exercises, your staff will learn how to build testing methods into their work processes to correctly design products that are functional and maintainable.

We’re passionate about testing, let us transfer our knowledge to your staff; it will help your business grow and continue to succeed, even in an ever-changing environment.

Software Implementation & Integration

Tezza is dedicated to solving the fundamental problems concerning the integration of engineering design software and the estimation of costs to improve and speed the design and manufacture of new products, and disseminating the these results.
Our work is focused on creating sophisticated, yet user-friendly, data collection systems which integrate bar-coding, RFID, wireless networking, and mobile computing into a seamless whole.

Tezza has specialists with decades of experience managing the integration of large-scale software projects.
No matter what the scale of the project, our testers have the technical expertise, as well as proven implementation processes, to ensure that interoperability is built into the application from the first line of code.

Strong change control management processes and rigorous regression test plans are just some of the processes used to ensure the finished application conforms to its functional requirements.

IV&V – Independent Verification & Validation

How does your organization mitigate against project related risks? We consider the independent verification and validation of systems and software development efforts as a key risk management strategy that every serious organization must consider and employ with every project implementation. The primary objective of an IV&V engagement is to provide an objective assessment of products and processes throughout the project life-cycle. In addition, IV&V will facilitate early detection and correction of errors, enhance management insight into risks and ensure compliance with project performance, schedule, and budget requirements.

Industry practice shows that a disciplined approach to project, program and portfolio management increases benefits realized by businesses from their investment in information technology assets and resources. Our Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services will provide assurance of project success within your organization. We accomplish this in two major ways:

• By communicating and educating your project management team on industry best practices for specific undertakings, and
• By providing an escalation path for issues and inhibitors to your project’s success.

Serving as subject matter experts in all of the core areas of a software development life cycle, we are able to help your organization assess your projects for risks related to your project scope, requirements, schedule, budget, resources and overall performance. By engaging us at the early phases of your projects, our services allow you to concentrate on your core competencies thereby ensuring that your productivity and profitability are not impacted as a result of new initiatives.

To be successful, your organization’s Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) activities must be performed by an entity that is not under the control of the organization that is developing your software. We advocate that IV&V services must be provided, managed and financed by organizations that are technically and financially independent of the development project. Technical independence requires that the IV&V does not use personnel who are involved in the development effort. Managerial independence requires that the IV&V effort be vested in an organization separate from the development and program management organizations.

Staff Augmentation & Outsourcing

Test Accelerator for T24 Core Banking Application

Do you struggle with allocating enough resources to properly test your core banking application? Are you concerned about making application changes or fixes without thoroughly testing them first? Is it difficult for you to get testing for your changes scheduled? When you test, do you need help from end users, removing them from their regular jobs where they are needed most? Do you find that you are testing with only one or two sets of test data, as opposed to the many different types of data that will be used in production?
Core Banking Applications Testing Challenges
1. Change is Constant
Core Banking applications are in a constant state of change; (fixes, patches, upgrades etc.)
2. Business Process Complexity
Validating a single business process requires testing numerous data scenarios (approvals, routing, authorizations, contracts, currency, etc.)
3. Highly Customized Heterogeneous Environments
End-to-end business processes typically span multiple technologies and applications that can include internet banking, mobile banking, ATM interfaces.
4. Banks that embark on accelerating testing via test automation often encounter poor test automation frameworks, high cost of tool licenses, lack of skilled test automation resources and high costs of maintaining test automation scripts.
