Acando establishes own Competence Center for Test Management

(PresseBox) ( Hamburg, )
With the successful establishment of a competence center, the Management and IT consultancy Acando is meeting the increasing demand for strategic test support. The unit with its nearly 20 members combines industry knowledge with methodical expertise while accompanying companies with targeted consultation services along their software tests.

The experts cooperate across locations and departments and are regularly certified by the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) and the German Project Management Association [Deutsche Gesellschaft für Projektmanagement – GPM]. Acando’s customers are supported in their projects by industry and technology professionals. “The demands for high-quality tests often conflict with budgeting and scheduling. Also companies face major challenges with regard to legal and content-related requirements for software systems; these challenges can only be faced with structured tests,” explains Waldemar Prokscha, Team Manager Business Consulting at Acando on establishing the competence center.

Acando has carried out successful test projects for retailers, logistics companies, various banks and financial service providers. Customers benefit from their decision to give test projects to a professional service provider; Senior Consultant Sven Murner elaborates: “Using our procedure, tests are processed more quickly because they are well structured and automated at proper occasions. There is more planning assurance for going-live and the risk of detecting errors too late is reduced to a minimum, thereby also saving costs.”

The fact that companies are currently concerned with strategic and automated tests is demonstrated not only by the many requests made with the consulting company, but also by the well-attended events of the competence center.

The next webinar about strategic test management will take place on October 20, 2011.
