In today's environment, organizations are spending millions of dollars on the development of systems that are interrelated. These systems, should they fail, could cause an organization irreparable damage not only internally but externally
Dayton, OH (Vocus) September 17, 2009
Sogeti, a premier provider of information technology services, today announced the launch of its latest book on software testing, End-to-end testing with TMap NEXT®. This book is the first to describe a complete and methodical approach to one of the most complex test situations facing test professionals today--dynamic testing of a business process from 'end to end' through a series of IT systems, platforms and organizations.
End-to-end testing with TMap NEXT® provides the test professional facing these challenges with the methods, techniques and tools to plan and execute the testing successfully, with less duplicate testing and faster turnaround time. The end-to-end approach is based on TMap NEXT®, Sogeti's world-leading test methodology that promotes a structured approach to consistently achieving quality software.
End-to-end testing, also known as 'chain' testing, is becoming an absolute necessity due to the increasing interconnectedness of many of the systems that provide the essential infrastructure of our daily lives. With boundaries between applications blurring, and systems chains becoming longer and more complex, undetected defects anywhere in the chain can have far-reaching impacts that are both business critical and difficult to predict. Testing system chains is one way to control these risks, and needs to be carried out to exacting technical standards and also with the collaboration of a number of system parties, with often different if not conflicting interests.
Lead authors are Rob Smit and Rob Baarda, senior test consultants at Sogeti. The book's approach is based on not only Sogeti's experience, but also the reviews and input received from clients and the results of a market review. End-to-end testing with TMap NEXT® is highly practical and comprehensive, covering topics such as risk analysis, planning, infrastructure, execution and roles. Logically structured, with useful definitions, examples and tips, the book therefore is an indispensable tool for the hands-on test professional, as well as giving insight to managers in both IT and the business needing to understand the risks involved in intra-company processes.
"In today's environment, organizations are spending millions of dollars on the development of systems that are interrelated. These systems, should they fail, could cause an organization irreparable damage not only internally but externally," explains Dan Hannigan, Vice President of Sogeti's Testing Practice. "Companies are looking for a complete process that includes methods, standards and practical examples of how to test these systems and ensure they are being implemented accurately to meet the needs of the organization. End to End Testing with TMap Next provides a complete guide and practical information to assist companies in ensuring that the systems they are developing are tested efficiently and effectively."
