The Need to Test
Appropriate testing is an element of the software development life cycle that is often undervalued. An application, product or service that has been well tested is guaranteed to be a success whereas one with inadequate testing is almost always a disaster.

 

The increasing complexity of IT systems and applications, combined with the increase in economic pressure and exponential costs of application failure have brought independent testing the recognition it deserves. 

 

Recent studies have shown that vast amounts of money is wasted as a consequence of inadequate testing and the cost of correcting errors at a later stage of development is several times higher than removing them through testing.

 

The Move to Independent Testing
Organisations have realised the importance of Independent Testing for a number of vital business reasons. This is especially true for offshore situations. Large, complex assignments across many global locations and different time zones simply prove to be inefficient in both time, resources and costs to deploy anything other than Independent Testing.

Globally organisations are investing in Independent Testing to reduce time to market and the cost of ownership. Over the last few years Independent Testing services have seen rapid growth and this trend is expected to continue in the future. This is especially true in today's economic climate when the pressure to deliver cost effective solutions is paramount.

 

OTR-ICT Services Limited have been created to deliver to the client the correct service to ensure a fast turn around for the full development Life cycle.

 

OTR-ICT Services Limited Independent Testing include:

 

  •  Functional testing (System and Acceptance).
  •  Performance Testing (Stress, Loading, and Volume).
  •  Operational Acceptance Testing (Release Readiness, Disaster Recovery).

 

Impartial Testing

The use of an Independent Testing service means that organisations know that their systems are tested by impartial specialised experts, using appropriate resources, tools and standards. Internal resources are often "too close to the fire" to provide objective testing and can have a lower motivation to test systems they may have developed.

 

Key Reasons for Independant Testing Services:

 

Time & Costs
  •  Increasing Development Time with associated Increased Development Costs.
  •  Increasing Time to Market with increased client/user dissatisfaction.
  •  Increasing Costs removing Delivered Defects.
Management
  •  Inadequate Testing.
  •  Inadequate Internal Resources for Testing.
  •  Guaranteed Impartial Testing.
Complexity
  •  Large, Complex Projects.
  •  Multiple Geographical Locations.
  •  Multiple Time Zones.
