Business users are increasingly impatient with IT systems that fail to solve real business problems or don’t perform as specified. Yet more than half of all software projects fail to meet objectives or suffer significant schedule and/or budget slippage because defects are discovered too late—even though up to 40 percent of project budgets is spent on software testing. Studies show that finding and fixing defects during test execution can cost 50 times more than during the early requirements phase—and 200 times more if left until production.
The reality of today’s business climate is that IT organizations are expected to deliver higher quality systems in less time with fewer resources. Software testing is often the first systems-development budget item to be cut when corporate spending is trimmed. For many large organizations, it has become very difficult to execute comprehensive software testing internally.
Amplified Technologies, Inc. provides a comprehensive set of solutions to help organizations achieve predictable, improved software quality levels while reducing the time and cost associated with testing activities. We offer true independent verification and validation services: our skilled software quality assurance professionals employ our proven testing methodology to ensure that testing is an integrated part of the software development lifecycle, cost-effectively identifying defects as early as possible.
We can help your organization get more done by providing a platform for sharing information and working together in teams, communities and people-driven processes. Microsoft SharePoint Server is an important part of the overall Microsoft collaboration vision and integrates with other collaborative products to offer a comprehensive infrastructure for working with others.
Application development is undergoing a massive sea change. Traditional approaches — and roles — are being reconsidered as new architectures emerge, integration and software platform alternatives multiply, outsourcing adoption accelerates, and the pressure from the business to build an agile yet robust and secure application infrastructure continues to grow. These days, technical expertise is no longer the primary success factor: collaboration, accountability, compliance, portfolio and resources management are all becoming key capabilities of the new Application Development Team.
Integration of enterprise applications is the new direction of application development. Rather than create new, separate programs, vendors are starting to integrate existing applications to better use, share, and allocate resources within an organization. Together with business process management (BPM) and business-to-business integration (B2Bi), IT departments around the globe are linking business needs to IT abilities. At Amplified Technologies, we can help to manage your integration initiatives to cohesively unite your business processes.
