Software Testing as a Service

Book description

In today's unforgiving business environment where customers demand zero defect software at lower costs-it is testing that provides the opportunity for software companies to separate themselves from the competition. Software Testing as a Service explains, in simple language, how to use software testing to improve productivity, reduce time to market, and reduce costly errors. It explains how the normal functions of manufacturing can be applied to commoditize the software testing service to achieve consistent quality across all software projects. This up-to-date reference reviews different software testing tools, techniques, and practices and provides succinct guidance on how to estimate costs, allocate resources, and make competitive bids. Replete with examples and case histories, this resource illustrates how proper planning can lead to the creation of software that's head and shoulders above the competition.
