TEAM International: Where Innovation Meets Quality
Software testing is a vital phase in any software development project. Frequently changing requirements coupled with a reduced product development life cycle has increased the risk of application deployment before a product is ready for the market. This is a compelling reason to consider QA & Testing strategically important and either perform it internally or partner with a vendor – in both cases relying on the highly-skilled and innovative QA engineers.
Founded in 1991, this Florida based firm’s initial motive was to ensure high quality output for all of their clients’software projects through full life cycle support. Today QA & Testing is a key component of every software development project and a stand-alone offering. Commitment to quality with such a level of dedication is truly a desirable aspect, especially in today’s IT centric business environment. Constant monitoring at all stages of the product delivers an output which renders tangible improvements over its original design. Another common trait in software development is the volatile nature of the project which often sees the product’s key attributes change in every stage of the process. Considering that QA engineers must constantly adapt their testing process to the changes made, thereby regulating its standards at each stage.To improve its proficiency in this respect, TEAM international’s Quality improvement department focused towards achieving the valued CMMI level 3 Certification in 2008.
