Prevent, eliminate and reduce damaging effects of defects
Quality IT applications are the backbone of most business processes today, yet, according to Forrester Research, “one-third of business stakeholders are dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with the quality of their software.” Poorly tested and integrated software has a severe effect on a business’s customers, sales, partnerships, employees and financial bottom line.
Navigator has a disciplined approach to preventing, eliminating, and reducing the damaging effects of defects, problems and issues. Our team is comprised of business and technology professionals highly experienced in a variety of industries, functional disciplines and products/technologies. This allows us to enhance the value of our services and deliver outstanding results through a deep understanding of the client’s unique challenges and opportunities.
Test Management, Support & Methodology
Every project and program requires a test management strategy/methodology to scope and plan the testing that is needed, how it is to be done, who will do it and provide a high level plan or schedule for its completion. Navigator will work with your point of contact to develop and create this approach with your goals in mind.
Testing Process Improvement
Navigator helps organizations with the testing lifecycle process by reviewing current procedures and helping establishing new ones. The goal is to design the processes to streamline common tasks and ease the burden on the team.
Our organizational assessment approach is a standalone service that provides a fast and accurate snapshot of your testing lifecycle and recommends a tailored, prioritized roadmap of improvements. This includes how to structure your testing teams, the tools you use, and the testing techniques utilized.
Software Testing Tool Selection
We identify, demonstrate, and assist organizations in securing the right testing tool. We identify the areas within the organization where tool support will help to improve testing processes; evaluate tools against clear requirements and objective criteria; conduct proof-of-concept to see whether product works as desired and meets requirements; evaluate the vendor; and identify and plan internal implementation.
Navigator can provide manual test teams led by subject matter or industry experts. We can also provide support and leadership across all software QA and testing functions, from helping with testing strategy, to resources that work alongside your existing QA and testing teams.
Test Automation Services
Our team of test automation specialists have expertise in building and customizing tool / technology frameworks for test acceleration. We can help develop and maintain scripts, build a scalable and maintainable test suite, and integrate the test automation efforts into the overall development lifecycle.
Clients are getting increasingly intolerant and abandoning applications if they are not fast enough, secure enough, or simply pleasing enough. This brings to focus why performance testing is so important. Navigator’s performance testing resources have experience in providing cutting edge services spanning multiple platforms and applications.
Navigator’s approach to technology deployments aims to plan, schedule and control the movement of releases to test and live environments. The primary goal of deployment management is to ensure that the integrity of the live environment is protected and that the correct components are released.
"Navigator Management Partners bring a unique capability to deliver technical and business solutions – not just a work function."
