Testing Services

Predict, plan and achieve your quality, schedule and
cost requirements

.There is no question that mobile devices, social media and digital innovation are having an extraordinary impact on the way businesses interact with their employees, customers and each other. The new work environment operates as a mobile enterprise with employees expecting the ability to connect seamlessly to corporate applications and each other – no matter what device they are using. Customers are demanding the same. If the online or mobile experience falls short of their purchasing goals, they are able to quickly find one to meet their needs - anytime and anywhere. With such a wide and dynamic array of devices, digital venues, and social environments, how does a business maintain the quality and rapid enhancement of their applications that are so critical to their success?

IBM Testing Services addresses these challenges by using an approach that is linked across the application development life cycle – one that gathers and uses information to model and predict outcomes in order to guide intelligent action and achieve an organization’s unique balance of requirements. IBM Total Test Quality combines IBM Testing Services with comprehensive automation from IBM Software and leading edge innovation from IBM Research to help clients drive dramatic reductions in cost and schedule while improving overall quality and lowering business risk of their critical business applications.

Getting started with Testing Services

Clients today are still understandably cautious in their investments and maniacally focused on tangible business outcomes. IBM provides our clients with creative Testing solutions that clearly identify areas for improved business value, quantify the expected returns, and accelerate results.

Application Quality Analysis (PDF, 506KB) – Do you know whether you are getting your money’s worth out of testing? Are you able to  determine the quality of applications based on your testing effort? Do you know whether you are doing too much/too little testing? Experience the power of Next Generation Testing with the Application Quality Analysis. Application Quality Analysis leverages IBM’s proprietary IBM Defect Reduction Method, together with IBM Test Planning and Optimization Workbench, to produce an initial test strategy that optimizes for your specific quality, schedule and budget goals.

Application Testing Assessment and Strategy (PDF, 423KB) –  If you are concerned about testing effectiveness or looking to improve time to market and quality through testing, the Application Testing Strategy and Assessment is a quick way to identify initiatives that enhance quality, improve cycle time, and reduce costs. It will enable you to quickly produce tangible business results and help uncover significant cost savings potential.

Application Code Analysis – The Application Code Analysis applies a unique combination of IBM testing innovations to run code through a combination of code checks to identify errors, vulnerabilities and compliance issues prior to system wide integration testing - helping to reduce project costs by 25 percent or higher while improving overall quality of applications. It identifies areas of potential errors related to poor coding practices and actual errors related to nonconformance to standards.

Cloud Application Virtualization (PDF, 515KB) – Are your test cycle times hindering your ability to deliver releases on a timely basis? Are there concerns about operational costs, specifically in IT area? Are you encountering significantly higher defect rates than projected in a late activity or phase of testing and/or production? Are you finding performance bottlenecks later in the life cycle? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then take a look at the Cloud Application Virtualization Accelerator that will demonstrate the benefits of Application Virtualization by virtualizing a set of your application services. In addition, you will get an assessment of the ability to optimize computing resources and simplify existing development and test management infrastructure.
