Independent Validation and Testing services
Testing and Independent Validation Services has evolved significantly over the last decade. From being just another phase in the software development lifecycle, it has evolved into an independent service. Several factors have contributed to influencing this evolution:
- IT systems are becoming increasingly mission-critical with more and more customer facing systems getting digitized and legacy migration programs taking off.
- Consumerization of IT is leading to increased focus on content delivery channels and associated feature requirements in the backbone IT system.
- Growing complexity due to multiple-point and multi-vendor systems integration.
Addressing these trends needs a comprehensive enterprise-wide QA and testing strategy, methodology, tools, and a dedicated organization of test professionals.
However, increasing adoption of DevOps and agile is driving the need for more collaborative testing in the enterprise. Testing must maintain independence from the development process to ensure clear separation of concerns. A mature and professional approach is required to reconcile these seemingly conflicting expectations.
