Software Quality Audit and Assessment

Quality assessment

Quality assessment can provide a quick insight into the software code quality or the solution’s compliance with specific standards.

ScienceSoft’s quality assessment experts validate software compliance with industry-specific standards (HIPAA, GAMP, PCI DSS, GLBA); perform manual code review and automated code audit to ensure the code’s quality and adherence to coding conventions.

When You Need Software Quality Assessment

We especially recommend quality assessment in the following cases:

Software failures can cause more than inconveniences for users. In some cases, sensitive information can be compromised (e.g. with banking and retail software glitches) and even human lives can be put under threat (e.g., glitches in software for medical devices). If pure testing may be not enough, we suggest option for code review to discover the reasons for the defects in software functionality, security, usability, and other aspects.

Purchasing the software product rights, it’s important to understand real product quality and potential. We conduct quality assessment to help you avoid unexpected glitches in a solution’s functionality, security and other aspects. We also identify beforehand which parts of the product will need improvements and what time and budget will be needed to implement them. It helps you prevent customer complaints and lost marketing opportunities.

You want to avoid high investment risks and/or improve cost management

With huge investments in updating the one already in use, it’s prudent to take an additional step to be sure of the quality of this solution. A high-quality software product based on a reliable and flexible architecture costs less to maintain and is easier and, consequently, cheaper to update. We are ready to conduct comprehensive quality assessment and detect the drawbacks and defects in the solution’s code and architecture. The earlier such defects are identified and fixed, the better it is for every project stakeholder in terms of time and ROI.

In such a context, there’s a need to assess the quality of your legacy software and analyze whether it can bring benefits if updated and what risks will accompany this decision. We are ready to help you detect the weaknesses that need to be fixed to prepare your solution for an update. Being aware of potential costs and risks, you can make an informed decision whether it’s reasonable to implement updates or whether it’s better to buy new software.
