Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
In the absence of a client established system, the following are established;
• How the quality requirements will be measured, administered and reported
• The application of any relevant industry standards
• That all quality checks have been added to the service plan, resourced and costed accordingly
• That the checks will ensure that the service deliverables adhere to the client’s quality expectations
• That the checks will ensure defects are identified as early as possible
During the execution of a service the following techniques are used to address the above. What is required will be dictated by the material, component or product, by the technological risk if it fails, and by cost and time considerations.
• Review
• Testing
• Quality audit

We provide pro-active monitoring and checking to ensure service availability through Storage Management, Database Administration, Capacity Management, Backup and Recovery and Site Recovery whether your systems are on-premise, in the cloud or as is more and more common, both.

On-demand public cloud resource management is now as critical an element of IT support as virtual machine provisioning has been in recent times and traditional server management was in the past – and all will continue to be so. Service delivery and service levels are important to you and to us. We work with you to deliver your IT the way you need it.
