Benefits of Project Delivery Assurance

It is fair to say that introducing changes to any IT environment is a task that many businesses struggle with. Even if the project is ultimately a success, there can be elements that don't meet the expectations of the business or business case. This can prove costly if not dealt with in the proper manner.

A 2011 study by Geneca found that 75 per cent of business and IT executives believe their software projects will fail. In addition, the Gallup Business Review reports that the US economy loses $50-$150 billion per year due to failed IT projects.

If you want to avoid this trend and ensure that your software integrated project goes off without a hitch, then it pays to know who to contact. At TTC we are able to offer project delivery assurance which can ensure projects remain on time, on budget and most importantly on target with your audience.

Here are four benefits of project delivery assurance:

1) Defined business requirements

From the beginning, it is important to recognise what the business wants to achieve. If these can be defined and agreed upon in a deliverable and testable way, the software project can get off to the best possible start.

Setting quantifiable expectations means that businesses can get almost instant feedback from our testing and therefore be in a better position from the off.

2) Risk management

Identifying the project risk and issues will mean that the software testing will run much smoother. Although it pays to be careful with IT projects of this nature, you don't want to over​ test software. As such, we take this balance very seriously.

If you over test a system, the overall cost increases significantly and can put unnecessary stress of the business involved. However, on the other hand, under testing can increase the number of defects not picked up.

3) Industry-standard test strategies

At TTC we are always striving to provide businesses with the best possible testing technologies and strategies. Our test strategies are constantly being reviewed and can enable greater automation, create reusable assets and even avoid duplication of effort.

As the software is designed to last for many years, we want to ensure that the process is always at the highest standard possible as well as being economic to your budget.

4) Catching defects early

There is a common saying that it's better to put the ambulance at the top of the cliff, rather than at the bottom. This is very true of our project delivery assurance. We have tactics and processes in place that can catch defects early and save any business considerable time and effort in the long term.

End-of-project problems can hamper customer relations, revenue and even reputation, so take finding these problems very seriously. Another benefit to catching defects at an early stage is that we can work with businesses to find solutions that work for both parties. 

At the end of the day, we want the IT software project to succeed as much as our clients do.
