Bangalore: As we have discussed earlier that a Test Center of Excellence (TCoE) not only brings in value to software testing and quality assurance but it also engages testers in proper testing methods to ensure that testing is done seriously and up to the expected level. Keeping the benefits it has aside, the next question that arises is the Return on Investment for a Testing Center of Excellence.

David W. Johnson on searchsoftwarequality.techtarget.com highlighted the various benefits of TCoE along with the ROI.

1.    Common Testing Environment
The biggest benefit of a Test Center of Excellence is the use of a common testing environment which supports a number of engagements.  

This will lead to a better utilization of hardware which will in turn reduce the cost of supporting test environments as well as other associated costs.

2.    Availability of Test Specialists
One of the biggest advantages of a Test Center of Excellence is the availability of test specialists with many years of experience. These testing specialists can provide consulting services; address most of the testing challenges and issues.

The senior testing specialists not only provide the expertise to deal with the various challenges and issues but also they can keep up with the testing schedule.

3.      Consistent Level of Testing
A Test Center of Excellence ensures a consistent level of testing which in turn guarantee a quality product. With testing providing decision makers with a correct measurement of the quality of a product, they can make better decisions.

Thus, undesirable risks are identified early which will lead to a suitable decision.  

4.    Mitigate Risks to Schedule
With the use of standard processes and procedures, the various risks to the schedule are detected early.

This will allow testers to take proper measures to bring down the risks to the schedule.
