Quality management in software development

Expect inconvenience at first - but then all the faster ROI

Is your ticket volume increasing? Do your background processes have longer and longer runtimes? Are legacy or obsolete programs accumulating in your systems? Is an extension of your existing software almost impossible because design flaws hinder the development?

Complex software systems are often maintenance intensive or require extensions that make the running system even more complicated. Over time, performance eventually deteriorates.

Software quality management by abat - concept, development, test, runs...

At abat, software development projects are created under the premise of "First-Time-Right" - in other words, doing it right the first time. Because truly sustainable development is characterized by the fact that the product life cycle is considered holistically by quality management.

This begins in the conceptual phase, where suitable design patterns serve as the basis for the design. Next, the entire development process is accompanied by both tool-based code checks and code reviews.

Dynamic development projects are subject to constant change and are therefore particularly challenging. Quality management tools and methods help to control this change and ensure the performance, security, reusability, and maintainability of the software. This in turn means shorter development times as well as faster and often more positive tests with less rework.

Software quality management by abat as a project-accompanying measure

Continuous support of your development project in the design and development phase, by abat's quality management, helps you to ensure a sustainable solution throughout the entire software lifecycle. Based on your requirements and the project and system conditions, we support you in the selection of suitable tools and methods.

Software quality assurance as an independent service

Stand-alone quality assurance by abat can be used to safeguard a software release or to support the acceptance of individual developments. We use a combination of automated tests and code reviews to assess compliance with development guidelines and best practices.

In addition to meaningful ABAP Test Cockpit test variants, other software metrics can be collected, integrated into the ABAP Test Cockpit. These provide KPIs that make it possible, for example, to identify critical software modules. Our experienced QA specialists then perform manual code reviews on precisely these modules.
