The quality, performance and security of business applications are of utmost importance to any organisation. Especially in today’s always-on, connected world, your end users expect to connect to your business anytime, from anywhere and through any device. Small wonder then that the customer experience on different devices is gaining importance, as is the emphasis on usability testing.
Most businesses struggle to address the ‘what, when and how much of what they should test.’ Yet, the constraints of faster time to market and tighter budgets necessitate the importance of getting it right the first time. While most organisations respond with an increased focus on quality, testing practices, on the whole struggle to adapt to the changing demands of incorporating Agile techniques in the digital world.
With test automation, performance, security, mobility and the use of open source tools becoming a necessity, Mastek provides organisations with the flexibility to respond to business needs whilst delivering the tried and tested quality that end-users expect. Our 30+ years of testing experience, domain knowledge and consulting experience, coupled with our assets and accelerators will ensure that you get the right quality, on time and within budget.
