Shifting quality and enabling fast feedback loops

A company is moving from an on-premise product to a SAAS-based one while adopting agility – requiring new ways of developing a solution, a different strategy for assuring quality, and different development and testing skills.

How we can help
  • Envision a roadmap for change and define a quality improvement strategy.
  • Improvements would include – shifting testing left, leveraging automation, rethinking the organization structure, upskilling the testing function, and managing releases differently.
  • Bring in appropriate test development approaches, automation frameworks, organization design models, and training collateral to enable this transformation.
Accelerating delivery through DevOps.

An enterprise wants to leverage digitization to open up new channels of revenue – requiring the ability to release features daily, recover from issues seamlessly, and use customer data to improve offerings near real-time.

How we can help
  • Assess the as-is software release process, define the should-be state, identify ways to eliminate waste, and build a deployment pipeline capability.
  • Process and tools would include – release management practices, ALM & deployment automation tools, and cloud platforms and tools, to enable the right capabilities.
  • Influence the change in behavior needed in the Dev and Ops functions to enable continuous delivery.
