7 Reasons Why You Need a Testing Center of
Introduction Testing teams are constantly under
pressure to reduce development time without
compromising quality. Traditional methods of
quality assurance fail as they just cannot keep
up with the challenges in constantly delivering
software that is time-bound, robust, and
efficient. This has prompted more and more
companies to lean toward the idea of establishing
a centralized testing service.  What is a
Testing?Center of Excellence?  A testing center
of excellence (TCoE) is a framework where testing
is maintained as a centralized service and shared
across the organization. It is a core unit that
involves standardized testing processes, formal
metrics, required tools, and expert
professionals. An amalgamation of tools, QA
processes, and human resources, TCoE empowers
organizations to implement test automation the
right way while enriching manual testing
productivity and outcomes. They can achieve a
higher QA maturity level as TCoE offers the
benefit of scalability and robustness of QA
function within an organization. 
Does your business need a Testing?Center of
Excellence (TCoE)?  The answer is yes if any
one of the following SEVEN CRITERIA applies to
your organization  Your QA is aligned to
project goals rather than the organizational goals
 In the absence of a centralized testing
framework, the testing teams report to
individuals and hence do not share a common goal
or direction. TCoE consolidates all testing
functions under a single umbrella so that they
operate toward a common goal which is, in turn,
aligned towards the mission, vision, and goals of
the organization. This serves to add more clarity
and visibility to QA in the eyes of the top
management.  Finding testing resources with
desired technical and domain skills is a
challenge and hence, projects suffer from high
training costs In a traditional QA set up, there
is limited cross-project visibility due to which
resources are not utilized optimally. Under TCoE,
testing resources are organized on the lines of
technology and Line of Business (LoB) as per
their core skills which aid in proper deployment
of resources across projects. 


Your QA process is not transparent In other
words, you are not sure how much ROI you get out
of your QA process. Without a TCoE, there is no
efficient tracking of how much an
organization has invested in testing and how much
return has it generated. TCoE introduces
metric-based tracking that measures the success
of the QA process in terms of test coverage, test
effort, defect slippage, test effectiveness, as
well as the ROI on testing.  You desire to
reduce your testing time without compromising on
quality?With TCoE, you can achieve a mature QA
with standard tools and frameworks resulting in a
more efficient test cycle. Organizations with
TCoE in place show an average reduction of up to
30 in the testing cycle which considerably
reduces the time-to-market.  Read Full Blog at
