THE CUSTOMER NEEDS
One of the Client’s main needs was to improve the quality of his software developments. Each of the company’s development areas performed its own tests, and there was no end-to-end SQA methodology for complete business flows. This supposed an additional risk as it made it difficult to assess the impact of functional changes in large business flows.
Therefore, in 2015 the Client decides to focus on Software Quality Assurance, and dedicate significant efforts to SQA.
The solution adopted by the Client was the implementation of a Transformation Plan in the area of Quality for the whole Organization.
To do this, it decides to look for collaborating companies with which to outsource part of the service and, as is the case of Panel Sistemas, have experience in large account and in SQA to help them to carry out this objective.
OUR VALUE PROPOSAL
Panel’s value proposal in this project was based on our high level of expertise in processes for Industrialization of Systems Testing and Certification, as well as the availability of a Center of Excellence in SQA & Testing, Panel Testing, located in Madrid.
In addition, Panel brings extensive experience in the application of SQA methodologies throughout the software life cycle, as well as experience of collaboration with large accounts, with products and projects of similar requirements.
Finally, our Zahorí® Test Framework is being used for the automation of functional tests. Zahorí is based on open technologies, so it allows the integration with other test management products on the market that are used by the Client.
The Transformation Plan is still in its initial phase. The SQA methodology in the Organization’s Culture is being successfully established, and the indicators of the Quality level of each area are being established.
So far, in addition to having greater control over the functional changes of the software, the Customer has achieved a significant cost reduction thanks to the outsourcing through the Panel’s Testing Factory, and an increase in productivity thanks to the automation of tests.
