If you develop software or work with data, you know your software needs to function according to specifications and your data needs to be accurate, reliable, and accessible. If your software or data is of poor quality, you risk frustrated clients, decreased confidence, compromised reputation, loss of goodwill, loss of revenue, and employee turnover. If work needs to be redone, the results are wasted time and resources, higher costs, diminished profit margins and low morale.
Whether you are testing software, migrating data, cleansing data or analyzing data, your options are to:
- train existing staff and deploy them to the task at hand
- recruit talent either directly or through a placement agency, or
- outsource, either offshore or locally
