Assessment of source code quality is a complex task, especially in cases where long-running internal projects have not passed through an extensive quality assurance process or where third-party software is to be used. Qafoo's quality reports are invaluable in providing you with deep insight into the quality of a project and thus arming you with the information you need to make key improvements.
A quality state report offers crucial information to help managers decide if a project should be continued, is worth maintaining or should be extended. For projects that have not experienced comprehensive quality management over previous years, this information is hard to find, yet critical for business decision-making.
Qafoo's quality state reports help managers assess the quality of internally- and externally-developed software. Qafoo's quality experts will create an extensive quality report, by analyzing software from scratch and developing detailed intelligence on the state of the code, documentation, tests, infrastructure and processes. The eventual quality state report can be used as the basis for a wide range of decisions, including product refactoring, product maintenance and product enhancement.
Usage of third-party software components in a project is meant to speed up development and raise overall reliability. However, in many cases, the opposite is true: bugs, scalability problems and inflexible APIs are just some of the reasons that external software components can result in catastrophic project failure. This is also true for commissioned software; if your organization sells software developed by a third party, it is even more crucial that the software conform to certain quality standards.
Qafoo's experts can perform detailed quality acceptance tests to help analyze the quality of third-party software components or commissioned software. Similar to a quality state report, a quality acceptance report analyzes the delivered software with respect to its quality, assessing how safe it is to accept the software based on individual decision criteria. These criteria include, but are not limited to:
Possibility for future enhancements
Future-safety of technology
