Implementing Outsourced Testing Services with a Third Party

Outsourcing test services are all the rage today. But are they really faster, better, and cheaper? Shelley Rueger shares how you can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your test process using a third-party test service. She provides guidance on how to determine if your product is a good candidate for testing services, how to select the right vendor, and how to avoid common pitfalls. Shelley discusses her team's experience as they made the transition from in-house testing to using external testing services. She addresses questions including: When should you outsource testing? When should you not? What questions should you ask a test services company before engaging them? What issues should you keep an eye out for during the transition? Leave with an actionable plan for implementing successful third-party testing within your organization—or come away with the knowledge that it will not be right for you.
