The cost of fixing an application problem in production is generally four times the cost of fixing it in test. Software testing can:
- Remove defects
- Increase system reliability
- Reduce your application costs
Load testing before deployment can provide managers with greater confidence for a successful “go-live,” especially for software projects that:
- Expect high user volume
- Have high visibility
- Are highly complex
Here’s how SALT can help you maximize the quality of your software development project:
