Foster City, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2006
Global Software Test Automation: A Discussion for Executives, the first book to offer software testing strategies and tactics for strategic decision makers, was published today in both paperback and e-book formats. Written by executives for executives, it is also the first to offer a practical business case for effective test automation, as part of the innovative new approach to software testing: Global Test Automation -- a proven solution, backed by case studies, that leverages both test automation and offshoring to meet your organization's quality goals.
Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer and CTO of Wheel of Zeus, said in his endorsement of the book, “Methodical and thorough testing of software is key to quality products that do what the user expects. Read this book to learn what to do!”
Software testing industry thought leader Hung Q. Nguyen, co-author of the book, explained that “this book was written to highlight the critical issues associated with software testing and quality assurance that impact the effectiveness of a company's executive staff and bottom line, and to share a strategy that can improve them.”
Mr. Nguyen emphasized that “an effective test strategy can do this by improving the visibility of the quality of your company's products, so that you can make better management decisions, lower your testing costs, and accelerate your time to market.”
Hung Q. Nguyen is coauthor of the software testing industry’s top-selling book of all time, Testing Computer Software (Wiley, 1999). He wrote this new book with Michael Hackett, with whom he also coauthored Testing Applications on the Web (Wiley, 2003), and Brent K Whitlock, program manager at Digidesign. In 1994 Mr. Nguyen and Mr. Hackett co-founded software testing firm LogiGear Corporation, where Mr. Nguyen serves as President and CEO and Mr. Hackett serves as Executive Vice President and head of the company’s training division.
