Tough market situations, budget cuts, delivery schedules, management focus, measurable quality and insufficient testing are inevitable realities of business today. Adding to the complexity is the need to constantly evolve with regards to technology, growing markets, distributed systems and IT architecture. While organizations are seeking to grow by adapting to these changes despite the tough market situation, they are also constantly looking for value in each penny they spend. One of the calculated steps to help business grow fast and stay ahead in this competitive market is adoption of agile methodologies like SCRUM, Extreme Programming (XP), Feature Driven Development (FDD), Dynamics System Development Method (DSDM ) and others. This calls for a systematic evolution in the testing world such as adoption of lightweight processes, automation to reduce time-to-market and proven approaches to migrate existing projects to Agile, supported by the global delivery model. Hexaware Technologies’ Quality Mantra The great philosopher, Aristotle, once said, “Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” We, at Hexaware Technologies, have adopted the ‘habit’ of ensuring that every product we are associated with is defect-free and, therefore, of high quality. Our experience has translated into a solid framework of the best practices from the testing industry characterized by robust strategy, process and automation accelerators, effective governance and also supplemented by our verticals domain strength. Our Quality Assurance and Testing Services (QATS) team aids customers in making their Software Development Life-Cycle (SDLC) more efficient. Need for a Comprehensive Agile Testing Solution Clients from around the world seek a solution that has an Early Defect Detection and Prevention mechanism, ensuring early and continuous business and customer validation at all stages and allowing for Continuous Risk Reduction and Quality Improvements. The ideal solution for these requirements is to adopt the right testing methodology.
