Our experts will help you to find the solution that best matches your situation
Testing & Acceptance:
Smart testing of information systems
Critical, independent testers keep your software designers on their toes and provide them with the factual control data they need. This places you in charge and enables you to make the right decisions and prevent serious problems from arising. It will give you peace of mind and will help your company’s IT resources to serve the business’ needs as effectively as possible. Valori relies on the expertise of first-rate testing consultants, who are qualified and experienced experts in their field –committed professionals who always go the extra mile to turn your project into a success.
E = Q x A
It’s not just the quality (Q) of the software that determines the effectiveness (E) of your information system – the acceptance (A) of your employees using the software is every bit as important. This is what it looks like expressed in a formula: E = Q x A. This is why Valori always focuses on technical and functional quality while working to create support within the organisation. Our focus is on users’ knowledge, attitudes and behaviour and we are always alert to quick wins. This fosters enthusiasm in the workplace and creates ambassadors for innovation – and, by implication, establishes a basis for long-term improvement. After all, it’s the people who make the difference!
Our consultants are familiar with the processes, legislation, software applications and specific challenges in a variety of industries. This means they can be productive from day one.
Valori is the undisputed leader in its field in the Dutch market, with expertise in OHI (Oracle Health Insurance), the application used by roughly 80 per cent of health insurance providers.
Valori also operates in the energy and water markets. Our consultants are well versed in areas such as upstream, smart grids, SEPA and mass billing.
Improving the quality of end-to-end testing
Lesson number one when trying to improve the quality of end-to-end testing: a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. The large number of parties involved in the process makes end-to-end testing a highly complex business. Valori knows how to make the risks associated with large and complex end to end testing processes transparent and manageable. This will help you to cut costs by 50 per cent and improve the reliability of your IT systems.
Testing in the cloud
Now that the buzz and excitement around cloud computing has quieted somewhat, its numerous benefits are as clear as ever, including access to ‘anywhere, anytime’ services and usage-based billing. But how do you make the cloud testable? What you need to do is to focus on the critical success factors: a solid risk analysis, an understanding of the overall end-to-end process, and cooperation with all parties involved in this process.
Usability and user experience are crucial elements of the software development process. We no longer need to learn how the system works – what we need to know is how users think and interact with systems to experience the highest level of user-friendliness. The use and user experience of a system should be like opening a candy box. While testing usability, it becomes clear to what extent the appropriate user experience requirements are met.
Valori Testing & Acceptance will help you to achieve just that. How? Experience it with our UX Game or invite one of our experts.
In the spotlight
Valori is regularly looking for graduates (at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level) who enjoy acting as a personal technology liaison and point of contact for clients. Recent graduates interested in training to become a software tester can sign up for the Valori Testing Seminar. We are currently looking for trainees for our next seminar, scheduled for 1 October 2017.
Smart testing calls for a SmarTEST. Since 2004, SmarTEST has been integrating the solid principles of structured testing from TMap, ISTQB and other methodologies with today’s agile approaches. Based on this – and for reasons of objectivity and independence – examination institute EXIN has modelled its TRACKS exam certificates on SmarTEST.
“We now have a comprehensive and up-to-date quality assessment of all our processes. Access to this type of data is essential when it comes to effective control.” – Freek Gasseling, Mass Retail & Marketing Manager, E.ON
Annual testing plan
Does the Planning & Control cycle cause you headaches, having to start planning for next year during the busiest period of the year? Inevitably, you do need to present a detailed annual plan to secure the budget you need – which we know is no mean feat. Valori has therefore created a checklist for preparing the Annual Testing Plan, based on the experiences of various organisations.
