Quality Consulting
Large enterprise customers and technology providers have leveraged Gradient’ consulting services to reengineer their QA and development processes. Our strong background in delivering testing services allows us to identify specific improvements to your quality management to enable better decisions that impact the bottom line.
Unlike traditional approaches to quality management where quality control essentially starts towards the end of the technology development process, our approach integrates information needed to trade-off risk of defects vs. cost of testing at a much earlier stage.
Assessment: Our consulting process begins with an assessment of various risks, cost and quality factors against the backdrop the company’s overall technology development process.
Engagement: Based on the assessment report and the recommendations, a roadmap for an engagement is developed, which serves as a guiding line to the consulting and testing team.
Deploying: All the testing procedures and methodologies are executed within the scope of the framework.
