Empowered Nearshore Testing Center - A provider-client conversation
Tuesday May 25, 2010 - 12pm ET / By Karla Garcia, Global Director for Product Management, Softtek Dean Lythgoe, Director of GroupWise and Teaming Engineering, Novell Inc.
One of the toughest challenges for software testing is designing an approach compatible with economic constraints and fast product release cycles. Balancing quality, cost and time-to-market for maximum ROI is difficult to achieve, and focusing on the "perfect testing center" is time-consuming, expensive and subject to numerous changes--all this, without guaranteeing added value to the organization. An empowered testing center may present an option to address the issues.
This conversation will focus on sharing practical ideas/examples on how to obtain a testing organization that's mature, low footprint and adaptable, to effectively capitalize on value for a wide range of software testing requirements. Softtek has provided software testing services to Novell for the last 3 years. In this session, specialists from both companies will share their views on the topic and answer questions from participants.
The following topics will be discussed:
Combining the best talent and empowering them through a managed services approach
Decision-making at Testing team level to boost effectiveness
Fulfilling the quality promise efficiently through effective knowledge acquisition
Communicating effectively with customer’s key business roles
Boosting productivity through the right global delivery strategy
