When ‘quality’ isn’t a priority throughout your software development lifecycle, costly bugs delay important projects and cause reputational damage to both your company (in the eyes of your customers) and your tech team (in the eyes of senior management).
How costly can those defects be? Bugs detected in production or post-release cost 30 times those found during the requirements phase.
But improving your Quality Engineering can have far-reaching benefits across your organisation.
- Inefficient working practices and expensive defect resolution Fewer defects in production and reduced budget spent fixing them
- Delayed development timelines erode business confidence in tech team Increased delivery velocity improves business confidence in tech team
- Negative company culture that doesn’t learn from past mistakes and experience team attrition Positive culture improvement and increased business confidence helps staff retention
- Development team suffers reputational damage, causing low morale, fracturing the team and slowing down work Development team builds a trusted internal reputation, high team morale and increased job satisfaction
- Poor user/customer experience, leading to reputational damage Better customer/user experience and positive reputational growth
