Identify gaps, optimize procedures, increase quality
Maximum reliability and availability, paired with a high and consistent quality of the system functionality - these are core requirements that broadcasters and content providers want to be sure of in any case. This also applies to new introductions, centralization or major updates of systems, services or components.
We observe in many companies that the test management required for this is project-specific and inconsistent. Valuable resources are wasted in solving the same tasks individually over and over again. The prerequisites for efficient regression tests are seldom met and, as a rule, few experts instead of a large number of testers have to check the quality. This often turns testing into a critical bottleneck in a project and achieving the desired quality becomes a matter of luck. Insufficient productive stability and dissatisfied users are then inevitable results.
In order to find out what the state is of in-house test management, we have developed a best practice test management model that serves as a benchmark for checking the respective procedure.
On the basis of this assessment, the customer himself examines the current status of the test management in a first step. This way, possible gaps in the procedure can be quickly recognized via a special dashboard and optimization potential in the current overall process identified.
The results of the assessment can be the first step towards standardized test management. sommer + spohr can support the change that will ultimately lead to centralized know-how being built up and used in all projects. At the end of the day, the measures taken will reduce costs, free valuable personnel from ballast and ensure reliable operation.
