New report illuminates the importance of Quality Assurance for user-centric applications

Striving to deliver applications faster with quality that enhances your brand? Then take a look at the World Quality Report 2013-14, published by Cap Gemini and Sogeti in combination with HP, for up-to-date and actionable insights on the state of QA and quality best practices being adopted worldwide. The World Quality Report is a rigorous study, based on a total of 1,500 detailed telephone interviews across 25 countries with CIOs, VP of Applications, IT and QA directors and managers within private companies, government and public sector organizations.

This groundbreaking report reveals that Application Testing and Quality Assurance (QA) now accounts for almost one quarter of IT spend yet challenges continue to exist. Report highlights include:

  • 45% of organizations currently involve QA too late in the development cycle, resulting in costly "find and fix" reactive testing
  • While mobile application security is a primary focus of 56% of organizations, nearly half (48%) admit to a lack of mobile testing expertise
  • Only 26% of organizations utilize centralized testing/QA to achieve efficiency and cost optimizations
  • Despite significant investment, 67% of organizations don't have the right testing tools to support their test environment, and 55% identify test environment management as a specialized skill they lack
