T3 Consortium LLC introduces new Software Quality Assurance
It's a new day in software QA framework design,
integrating Business Compliance, Software Quality Assurance, Functional
Testing, and Automated Regression testing all under one consistent
framework. Wrap that around the latest Center of Competence (CoC)
design, and you've got a powerful QA solution.
T3 Consortium has announced a process driven methodology that ties CMM
modeling into the Quality Assurance IT function, creating a powerful
business solution for firms wanting to maximize the return of their IT
Brooks Betz, Managing
Director for T3 Consortium and Head of Service Development states "The concept of Center's of Competence and Centers of Excellence are not new. The
three key ingredients to this recipe are integrating a proven CMM
quality methodology, taking advantage of new technologies, and lastly-
the right people who can properly survey the landscape and design the
proper integration model." But it doesn't end there. Once the
processes are in place, the technology and tools have to follow.
take automation as an example. If you took a survey, you'd probably find
that in automobile manufacturing, no company would be able to compete
without automation. But what people don't seem to remember is that it
takes money to save money. That startup capital, if managed properly,
can yield tremendous return on investment (ROI). But don't try to
implement automation tools for IT Quality Assurance programs until you
have your process house in order. Figure

the framework is not designed correctly.
Rule No.1- don't just script
with tools out of the box.
This is also know as Mistake No. 1.
are answers.After the tools are in, then comes the
critically important "tweak
phase". Remember to always be looking for opportunities to tweak the
program to suit the user community (avoids the backlash).
Lastly, you globalize (or spread the
load where you can take advantage of more than just the time zones).
Exploiting the expertise from within the time zone that suits the
project plan and covers the RISK elements first. You remember risk don't
you. It's the FIRST and the PRIMARY thing you ALWAYS need to consider.
The illustration below indicates how
if you're going to walk up the stairs of CMM, you've got to realize
what's really happening. The objective is to not only get more
proficient at it, you need to return a better ROI, higher quality, or
lower risk (my last engagement was all three!).

frameworks from a practical/real world perspective.
It's not just
hitting a new level- it's recognizing how to climb it.
The small % numbers in Figure 3 represent those gathered
during a sample study of testing Program Managers across a global
software tools vendor. While most Program Mangers are in the first two
groups, T3 Consortiums expertise lies in the ability to get you to the
4th level, and the 5th if the ROI can warrant it!
