Test Consulting

Strategy Transforms Testing Beyond Conventional Practice


Leading industry analysts have endorsed shifts emphasizing advantages when service providers adopt a holistic approach when helping organizations align to their business goals and Knowledge Performance Indicators (KPI).

How we measure your organization

At CDS, we use a hybrid assessment model based on leading industry models like TMM, TMMI and TPI to objectively assess and measure the maturity of your organization. Our model addresses questions like:

  • Will expenditures in testing yield positive results?
  • Will I attain the best results from the utilized testing process?

What our testing uncovers

Our services utilize a distinct Assessment Methodology to assess and outline recommendations on testing tools, testing processes, best practices, setting up shared services or creating a TCoE.
