Newton, MA (PRWEB) October 18, 2010
Scrum co-creator, and CEO of Scrum Inc., Jeff Sutherland and qaSignature are announcing a new partnership to accelerate software development. Dr. Sutherland believes qaSignature’s qaOptimization™ technology will accelerate software development significantly. qaOptimization™ technology uses regression analysis to allow teams to fix bugs on a daily basis, speeding up the entire development process significantly while improving quality.
“Over the years, software developers accelerated their work and improved productivity with Scrum and Agile, but regression testing always got in the way of reaping the full benefits. Accelerating development shifted the bottleneck from development to QA,” says Dr. Sutherland. “After a detailed review of a number of case studies combining Scrum with qaSignature I realized they had cracked the problem.”
qaSignature provides a full regression cycle every single day, with results analyzed in 12 hours or less. This enables teams to remediate bugs, within 24 hours, before further development.
The Chief Architect of qaSignature is Leonid Shpirt. He’s the man behind qaOptimization™ methodology and the qaOptimizer™ platform. “The architecture supporting qaOptimization™ is based on many, very complex mathematical theories and models. It took us years to get it to work, and looking back, I think it was more luck than anything,” says Shpirt. “At the same time, it does not take advanced mathematics to figure out if you double the speed of software development, you’ll have the same number of bugs in half the time. The QA team has to improve as dramatically as the development team does using Scrum. qaOptimizer™ solves that problem.”
Vlad Shamis, CEO of qaSignature, says when he told clients he could guarantee full regression cycles in less than 12 hours, at a fixed price, they were skeptical to say the least. “'I think you need to get your prescription refilled’ was one response,” he says.
And now he’s excited to pair up with one of the legends in Agile development. “Jeff was skeptical just like anyone else at the beginning, but once he rigorously evaluated the product he instantly understood the value,” says Shamis, “It is a privilege to collaborate and share a vision with him.”
Scrum Inc. and qaSignature will work together with clients to implement both Scrum and qaOptimization™. They believe so strongly that they can dramatically increase productivity and the delivery of products, they are only going to charge clients based on how powerful those changes are.

Dr. Jeff Sutherland is the co-creator of Scrum. Scrum is the leading approach to Agile development worldwide, used by industry leaders to achieve dominance in their space. The foremost expert on Agile thinking in the world Dr. Sutherland has advised thousands of companies across the globe. He is the founder of both Scrum Inc. and the Scrum Training Institute.
qaSignature is a provider for qaOptimization™ process improving Agile development processes. qaOptimization™ process improves software development process by adding full daily regression testing and “bug” remediation into the daily Scrum development process. The company provides a “cloud based” qaOptimizer™ regression testing platform which can run full regression testing cycles daily with results already analyzed within 12 hours. Ability to fully test daily, and building remediation of defects directly into Scrum development process dramatically reduces development costs, time to market and support. Their “cloud based” SAAS has improved profitability for companies by millions of dollars for more than a decade.
