End-to-End Solution

 

Qual IT provides IT quality assurance services to some of New Zealand’s most successful organisations.

 

We understand that successful technology projects begin with the end in mind. Get us in your corner to obtain certainty that your IT projects will deliver successful outcomes.

 

 

Scoping

Whether you’re buying the latest mobile technology, modernising a creaking legacy platform or just maintaining existing systems, you’ll be thinking about IT change. 

Successful IT projects address testing and assurance right from the start. When you’re scoping out your new system’s business benefits, you should be thinking about acceptance criteria that make it clear when you have delivered a successful project. 

Qual IT can help set up sound and practical business change governance as well as show you how to develop organisational test policies and enterprise test strategies that fit with the way you deliver your projects and take into account your tolerance for business risk.

If you’re thinking about issuing a Request for Proposal for a new system, read our RFP Assurance service whitepaper, or talk to us about how several New Zealand government departments have already used this service to reduce uncertainty in the procurement process.

Initiate

As you kick-off your IT project you’ll be focussed on defining requirements, a delivery plan and setting up your project governance. Alongside that you’ll be looking at assembling a team to deliver it. 

Qual IT can work with you to make sure that you’ve got a test strategy and plan that meets your needs and addresses your risks.  Whether your own in-house test team needs some additional resource or specialist skills, or you need a test partner to own or share responsibility for all your testing outcomes, Qual IT has working examples of different models of delivering testing successfully.

Deliver

A successful delivery phase incorporates rigorous testing at all stages, and a sound governance and decision making process to deal with the outputs from testing and assurance activities.

Qual IT works with clients to tailor a pragmatic approach that encompasses the most appropriate test and assurance roles, test types and test techniques to ensure your systems function as expected and continue to work seamlessly for end users.  Whether you’re looking for good application functional testers or you’re after more specialist integration testers, infrastructure testers or performance testers, give us a call and we can show you the profiles of some of our team members.

You may be interested to know how tools and technology can improve your testing.  We’ve got experience with all the major commercial and open source tools and we’re not tied to any vendors, so we provide sound, independent advice.

Implement

As you draw closer to your go-live date you’ll be looking for assurance from your project team that you’re ready. We’ve all seen the headlines when a high profile technology project goes bad, and none of us want to make them.

With a strong focus on the objective measurement of business risk, your Qual IT testers will be making sure that you have the right information about system quality, so you understand the impact of any potential issues and can make informed judgement calls that are right for your business.

Evolve

Many organisations overlook the total cost of ownership of their systems and neglect to address the on-going support and maintenance implications. We work with our clients to help anticipate some of those hidden project lifecycle costs.

With Qual IT as your test partner we’ll make sure there’s a continuous focus on optimising delivery and reducing your testing costs.  We use strategies that address things like regression testing, the effective use of test tools and technology, knowledge sharing and IP retention.  We do this as a matter of course with our longer-term clients, but if you don’t work with us yet, we can come and do a short consulting engagement.

We always work collaboratively with your own staff and are able to bring our world-class test capability development frameworks to ensure you realise the benefits of adopting a testing culture in your organisation.
