Without modern approaches to software quality assurance and testing, you can’t develop the solutions you need to keep up with customers and competitors.
If your organization is not using modern software quality assurance and testing methodologies, you’re likely experiencing chronic manual-testing bottlenecks, increased test cycle times, and escaped defects. Or perhaps you’re experiencing these challenges because you are operating in silos or starved for resources.
The best way to increase testing coverage, decrease testing cycle time, and improve quality is to leverage modern testing practices, including automation, to support rapid delivery. With the increasing use of Agile, Lean and DevOps, testing has quickly become a focal point for accelerating delivery while improving quality.
We specialize in these modern methods of delivering better quality assurance strategy, test automation and digital quality assurance to ensure that the most relevant feedback speeds your software and application development.
With our help, you can increase testing velocity so your organization confidently accelerates its release cadence which helps delight customers and keeps rivals on their toes.
Automating your software testing processes is not just about technology—it’s also about people. Our approach includes the training and education you need to make your testing program succeed.
Experienced strategists and architects evaluate the best way to structure your quality assurance (QA) organization to integrate quality more tightly into engineering processes.

Automating Testing to Maximize Resources
Our client, a chemical information company, needed to scale up an automation team for a large Agile program with eight teams). But both the teams’ capacity and the project budget were limited, though the company had sourced with six local contracting firms and 11 embedded contract automation resources.
We implemented a program called Rock Star to develop innovative learning and growth capability for the Agile teams in-house. We put four employees through an intensive two-week, hands-on training class to learn engineering and automation practices, such as:
- architectural design patterns
- static code analysis
- best practices for designing automated tests.
After three months, the 4 Rock Stars were as productive as the other 11 existing contract resources. Because they had learned the engineering architectural side of test design, six months later the Rock Stars were outproducing the other resources by an average of 900%.
