AppLabs, the world's largest independent testing, quality management and certification solutions company, today announced that it will host a live Webinar entitled 'Governance, Management and Testing in an Outsourced Model.'

As more and more organizations use outsourced partners to deliver the design, build and testing of business solutions, the major challenges they generally face are:
- Agreeing the roles and responsibilities for each partner organization
- Establishing who will test the solutions provided at each stage of the lifecycle and who will integrate and accept them into the business
- Understanding what metrics and quality measures need to be in place to ensure the partners add value to your business
- Defining contracts and commercial models that put the onus on service providers to deliver against these
- Managing and governing the testing deliverables and services against these contracts
In the webinar, host Ian Londesbrough, Principal Consultant of AppLabs will take a candid look at how an organization should consider structuring their contracts, which will help assimilate testing to match the business objectives. The host will also give some strong recommendations on what and who to govern and how.
This Webinar will provide critical information to people in the following roles:
- Chief Financial Officer
- Chief Information Officer
- Line of Business Manager
- Vendor Manager
- Sourcing Professional
