Who Are We?
The QA group is a new member of the ITS - Enterprise Applications Group, and is dedicated to providing testing services for all software projects within the Project Management Office (PMO). Among other things, these testing services include test planning, determining test strategies, exploring the user's needs, and reporting issues effectively.
Our primary goal is to significantly enhance the functionality, usability, and performance of the software solutions upon release to the user community.
We are always looking for ways to ensure that any software that we are testing does what it was designed to do and, conversely, does NOT do anything it was NOT designed to do. In that effort, we are here to help… to investigate… to learn things… to report them clearly... to make sure that people understand the significance of what we have found… and finally, to provide the most reliable data possible to help in understanding and improving the software or process.
"Software should be predictable and consistent, presenting no surprises to the users."
-Glenford J. Myers in The Art of Software Testing
