  • Introduction to iTest Quality Partners
  • Brief introduction to iTQP’s products and services.
  • Complete and low-overhead maintenance of your DOORS-based requirements management system is essential for the success of the development projects that you support. Effective use of automation must be a key component of any such large-scale maintenance plan. This paper outlines DOORMat, an application framework for an automated solution to managing and maintaining custom enterprise-wide DOORS implementations.
  • Cost of Quality
  • Understanding the costs of (poor) quality in your organization is often the best place to start in improving operational performance. Especially important is the role of clear requirements. This paper illustrates the sources of organizational costs due to poor quality performance and delivery.
  • Glue™
  • The key to the power of many of iTQP’s software quality and system integration offerings can be directly traced to our overall project delivery philosophy. This philosophy, based on literally thousands of projects, is embodied in our proprietary software engineering information model known as Glue. The Glue information model has been designed to achieve a single overriding objective: Value-driven risk-adjusted solution delivery. This paper introduces the Glue information model and how it can become the framework for your entire enterprise business application delivery and support process.
  • Glue™ Information Model
  • Download a copy of this simple powerful model for use in your own organization.
  • Quality Metrics and Sizing
  • No part of technology efforts tends to be more elusive than determining their true scope. This paper, based on literally hundreds of engagements, outlines the key metrics that define the important quality and performance dimensions of any technology project.
  • ValidationBench™
  • ValidationBench, a DOORS-based extension, implements portions of the Glue information model to more directly support a project’s validation and testing efforts. This paper outlines the capabilities of this DOORS extension.
  • Maximizing Strategic Value
  • The path to maximizing the strategic value of any enterprise requires not just great thinking, but an operating model that can quickly identify the right ideas, translate them into action, and then convert action into results. This paper explores five critical challenges that companies face along this path towards maximizing their strategic value.
  • Project Management
  • Project management is the ability to transform concept into reality in a no-surprise environment. This paper focuses on the management of technology projects—software package acquisitions, new custom implementations, enhancements to existing applications, and related systems integration efforts, and outlines a set of field proven best practices for successfully carrying out and managing those activities.
  • Business Processes and Continuous Improvement
  • This paper explores the power of process and process-thinking as key ingredients in an enterprise’s overall quality program.
