Do You Know Your Cost of Rework? voke Publishes New Research on Reducing the Cost of Rework



Are you aware of what your cost of rework is for your software? Yes, the very software that runs your business and is an integral part of your brand promise.



Most organizations are either not aware or not interested in what the cost of rework means. However, this cavalier stance to the cost of rework is dangerous. Each and every software project has an associated cost of rework – that is the cost involved with removing defects. The later in the lifecycle a defect is discovered, the more expensive it is to remediate. Defects create the hidden cost of rework in every software project.



The new voke Strategic BriefTM Report: Reducing the Cost of Rework highlights:

  • The business impact of defect leakage with real-world use cases
  • The cost of rework models for both Agile and non-Agile projects
  • Ways to test earlier to reduce rework and its costs



The Strategic BriefTM Report: Reducing the Cost of Rework is available here or at www.vokeinc.com for subscribers.

API Testing – Stop Waiting and Start Testing ASAP!

We have all heard that testers must keep pace with developers to deliver software faster. However, most testers continue to test at the UI level – which is constantly changing, so testers have to wait, and that impacts the ability to meet business demands for faster software releases. It becomes a cycle that testers have a hard time escaping. Testers want to be able to test earlier, reduce risk, and identify defects sooner – all to satisfy the customer. API testing is the perfect way to supplement traditional UI testing, keep pace with development, and deliver better quality at scale!  API testing can help you test earlier, faster, and more efficiently! And now, we have the data to show you the benefits of API testing including how much time is spent on UI testing alone, how much (or should I say little) time is spend on unit and API testing, and how much coverage is achieved.  We will be premiering the results of our recent survey on API testing in a webinar with Paraso

Is API Testing Worth it?

Well, if you want to reduce risk, increase coverage, and reduce defect leakage in your software the answer is a definitive and resounding YES! Over the past couple of decades, testers have largely been testing at the user interface (UI) level. The problem with this approach is the UI is constantly changing and must be stable before any testing can begin. If you have been following software development, you know that the trend is to release more quickly – waiting for a UI to be stable to be tested does not break any speed records, in fact this slows down the whole software engineering process. What if you could test earlier in the software engineering lifecycle with a stable interface? This would mean that you: • Test earlier in the lifecycle • Identify and remediate defects earlier • Reduce testing time and cost • Increase test coverage  If these benefits sound too good to be true check out our most recent research on API testing that shows how you can achieve better s
