How the quality assurance and performance testing works
Quality assurance of design, as opposed to by proxy when testing or using the implementation, brings major benefits to a cloud programme. It improves long term quality, issues can be addressed systematically, in priority order, at the design stage rather than by tactical fixes on an implementation. It reduces the cost of rework, both direct and opportunity cost. It reduces conflict across delivery organisations. By ensuring the design has considered atypical scenarios and non-functional issues the overall quality of experience of the delivered solution is increased and the operational cost reduced.
