Quality Assurance to Quality Engineering:
A must cross chasm

Putting Quality Engineering (QE) to work

What is it about?

In any product, the features it delivers matter a lot. But the product’s performance and overall quality of experience are what keeps the user engaged. Businesses gain competitive advantage when they can deliver high quality products while reducing the time-to-market and improving ROI. A leap from QA to QE helps you achieve this goal and in today’s dynamic environment, this leap is imperative.
