If your testing environment process doesn’t properly represent your actual environment, then your test environment management strategy and resulting data are close to meaningless. The worst situation of all is that all your tests have passed – and your project is given the green light for release – only to fail once live.
The key is to create, plan and manage a testing environment strategy that is an appropriate representation of your existing, or proposed, production system. If capacity is an issue, then our SQS Quality Cloud is available to help you manage costs. Virtualisation – either on your site or using our cloud – allows you to test systems or services early in their development, before the infrastructure to support them exists.
Our test consultants can help you create and plan the ideal test environment strategy. If you already have a test environment, we can optimise it so that it delivers a reliable, trusted service. We can also offer your team comprehensive training in how to run and manage a successful test environment process.
Successful test environment management can be challenging. So, when we work with you, we ensure that you get an environment that you can work with and is within your budget. We do this through six key steps:
Finally, SQS can assume full management responsibility for the provision of our test environments – ensuring they are fully maintained and available whenever needed.
