Geval6’s Testing Center of Excellence (TCOE) ensures we use the latest in Techniques, Processes and Tools to enable Software Testing as a service to our customers. As focus on quality rises, so does the need to perform testing in an industrialised and cost-efficient way.
At Geval6, Testing Center of Excellence (TCOE) has moved from being a Shared Resource to a Practice over several carefully planned steps
Initially, we established a Standard Governance Process, helping us move from Chaos to Order. Testing resources, being part of the project teams, are governed by some simple Quality policies, Formulate basic Measurable test parameters and follow dotted line reporting for collaboration.
Then, we made testing as a shared resource by which we were able to standardize on testing tools and established fundamental collaboration principles with the development team including setting up a test and staging environment.
Subsequently, we encouraged resources to get certified in specialized quality skills such as ISTQB, CSTE, CASTP (for Agile), PSD (SCRUM) etc. Also, enabled Geval6 to look at expertise based teams within testing.
Finally, we matured into a Testing Center of Excellence (TCOE) as a service provider both to internal projects as well as to our customers, as an independent expertise.
Geval6’s offerings in this area covers a wide variety of software testing and complementing services. Geval6 offers the following services in this space
