application testing service provider in UAE and Malaysia
As a test management and automation services company we conduct test reviews to evaluate the status of work products and assist team management with decisions regarding the next phase of activities. Typically, it is performed by a qualified external party engaged to monitor and provide conformance to defined test process behavior, provide an independent voice towards continuous process improvement efforts, and communicate findings to stakeholders to take appropriate remedial actions towards process improvement.
The review process exists and is always done across the spectrum of testing activities. But, mostly, these tend to be informal, unstructured, and performed by peers. These reviews are mostly done to provide a sense of security to the Project Manager. Research studies support the conclusion that formal reviews greatly outperform informal reviews in cost-effectiveness and achieving business objectives.
Testing Life Cycle
The most obvious value of formal software reviews is that they can identify issues earlier and more cheaply than they would be identified by testing or by field use). The cost to find and fix a defect by an expert review will be several times of magnitude less than when the same defect is found by test execution or during field use.
A more important value is that they can be used to improve the development process that would help technical people to identify and remove process inadequacies that encourage defects. This improvement can dramatically reduce errors in downstream activities and reduce time to produce high-quality software.
