    3. 3. What the Experts Say <br />Software<br />Maintenance<br />Software<br />Testing<br />“Software testing is often treated as accidental in industry, where it is sometimes barely done at all, often done poorly, and seldom done well. Testing is often cut when schedules and budgets overrun.<br />“The need for software quality has been increasing dramatically, and new ideas like agile processes put a heavy emphasis on testing”<br />Jeff Offutt - Professor of Software Engineering, George Mason University.<br />"The national annual cost of [poor] software testing is estimated to range from $22.2 to $59.5 billion." - US National Institute for Standards and Technology<br />
    4. 4. What the Experts Say <br />Software<br />Maintenance<br />Software<br />Testing<br />“We have as many testers as we have developers. And testers spend all their time <br />testing, and developers spend half their time testing. We're more of a testing,<br />a quality software organization than we're a software organization.”<br />Bill Gates on trustworthy computing. Information Week, May 2002<br />"The national annual cost of [poor] software testing is estimated to range from $22.2 to $59.5 billion." - US National Institute for Standards and Technology<br />
    5. 5. What the Experts Say <br />Software<br />Maintenance<br />Software<br />Testing<br />“Irreproducible bugs become highly reproducible right after delivery to the customer”<br />Michael Stahl’s derivative of Murphy’s Law <br />Jeff Offutt - Professor of Software Engineering, George Mason University.<br />"The national annual cost of [poor] software testing is estimated to range from $22.2 to $59.5 billion." - US National Institute for Standards and Technology<br />

    108. 108. Clients Testimonial<br />Software<br />Maintenance<br />Software<br />Testing<br />Industry Leaders <br />“We have used Axe on a number of high profile engagements<br /> and in conjunction with a range of tools has helped us achieve a<br />high-level of compliance and consistency in the delivery of our <br />testing by re-use of tested components. Its design and <br />architecture allows us to deliver Quality, flexibly and at speed<br /> with the minimum of maintenance and the requirement to<br /> write additional driver scripts” <br />Andy Nichol, Microsoft Services (NHS and E-Gateway) <br />
    109. 109. Clients Testimonial<br />Software<br />Maintenance<br />Software<br />Testing<br />Industry Leaders <br />I have used Axe for the past 3 years. This tool helped me introduce automation to a QA department that had tried going the automation route a few different times in the past but it never really took off. Axe gave me the ability to teach the QA team quickly. After only a couple hours of train the QA team was creating and executing USEFUL test cases in the current project. The one thing that we need to be kept in mind is my QA team was able to learn and apply Axe, while keeping up with their day to day tasks. The project calendar was not changed because we wanted to introduce automation. As far as I am concerned Axe has set the bar for all other automation tools. I have and I will continue to recommend Axe to all my peers.<br />Erich Scheman – Fiserv<br />
    110. 110. Clients Testimonial<br />Software<br />Maintenance<br />Software<br />Testing<br />Industry Leaders <br />“With the scope and complexity of recipient clients we need to<br /> deliver to, Quality is one of our most important criteria. Axe<br /> allows us to operate a continuous change-based environment. <br />This ensures testing is no longer a constraint on our requirement<br /> to deliver the highest quality systems quickly to a large number<br /> of clients simultaneously”<br />Alan Long, Microsoft Programme Manager <br />
