As companies address their critical business challenges in a dynamic and competitive environment, technology (hardware, software and networks) is playing an increasing role in supporting an organization’s critical business functions. Effectively and efficiently managing the development and testing of information technology environments, both pre- and post- deployment, is paramount on CEO, CIO, CTO, (CXO) agendas. As such, these Senior Managers are pursuing an urgent business imperative – the rapid implementation of a testing function and processes capable of identifying defects early, meeting time to market targets, and reducing post-deployment software/system risks.
Software Development Technologies STRW Methodology is a proven approach to rapid implementation. This methodology is easily adaptable, can be tailored to an organization’s needs, and includes a wide range of “best practices” for both the verification and validation of software and systems.
