Taking this into consideration, the delegate will be sufficiently equipped to improve not only their own but also the company’s operational methodologies, testware and test deliverables.

TESTING FOR BUSINESS ANALYSTS 


Course Duration: 2 days

If the Business Analyst compiles a specification document, with a focus on quality, huge cost savings can be achieved during the software development project. Benefits will include, an increase in productivity as well as in development and testing time. This will have a positive impact successfully meeting the project delivery date.

Business Analysts are highly involved in both User Acceptance Testing and System Testing. It is there for imperative that they understand how to apply the effective testing techniques for creating UAT test cases and how to participate in System Testing.

BUSINESS ANALYST & QUALITY


Course Duration: 1 day

here is a global trend of preventing defects rather that finding defects. The benefit of preventing defects is huge cost savings, production improvement of both the developing as well as the testing activities and the successful achievement of project timelines. Quality begins during the inception phase of a project and the Business Analyst plays a very important role in defining high quality requirements for a software product. By defining thorough functional and non–functional requirements by the Business Analyst will prevent misinterpretations and ambiguities later in the development life cycle.
