Software quality pays off in the long term

When innovative business ideas fail owing to countless bugs and bad decisions, not only do good ideas fall by the wayside, resources are wasted unnecessarily. Intelligent quality assurance combats this effectively and increases the ability to act.

Professional, standardised test management thereby not only increases the quality of a software product, it also contributes significantly to reducing project costs.

Conscious control of software quality

Failures can be avoided by strategically adopting tried-and-trusted quality assurance measures such as performance tests. Every bbv quality assurance strategy involves an intelligent combination of models, methods and test automation. And for good reason, as this allows the desired quality level to be controlled consciously.

Innovation workshops

From idea to business case. The innovation workshops provide a forum for us to develop business ideas with you relating to technological and methodological trend topics.

Quality begins with the right mindset

bbv’s software developers are professional in their respective disciplines and their mindset is always to deliver top-class work. After all, achieving above-average performance demands constant awareness of the impact of quality-related decisions.

In addition, our teams have to be able to assess the situation and the objectives precisely in order to choose the correct methodical, technical and organisational measures. Our Software Development Quality map summarises the wealth of successful strategies for achieving optimum quality assurance with the bbv seal of approval.

Efficient test management for an SBB Intranet project

Efficient test management for an SBB Intranet project

The SBB Intranet is the main channel for internal communication. Apart from comprehensive information, it also includes many self-service offers and a variety of specific SBB applications. The new “OneIntranet” project was to replace old individual portals and standardise them under a new design. bbv supported SBB with its testing know-how.

Success Story

More efficient testing with tool-based automation

Certainty in power supply: Switchgear installations must fulfil the strictest requirements. The software components developed by bbv resulted in significantly increased testing efficiency at ABB thanks to automated test planning, implementation and documentation. This also had a positive impact on employee motivation.

Success Story
Bernd Heisterkamp, Head of Technical Support, Substation Automation & Protection, ABB Schweiz AG

bbv supported us reliably from evaluation through to the roll-out of HPE-ALM. We can use the tool efficiently and therefore increase the quality of our systems.

Quality-assured energy measurement data feeds

High-quality measurement data feeds are the basis for efficient energy data management. BKW-FMB Energie AG rolled out a new metering system for this purpose. bbv supported the migration in terms of quality assurance and optimisation of the processes involved in recording and processing measurement data.

Booklet: Quality-driven development in brownfield projects

Booklet: Quality-driven development in brownfield projects

Many long-term projects (also in the embedded sphere) become increasingly complex over time as maintenance, verification, troubleshooting and adaptations become ever more intricate and susceptible to error. This 48-page booklet shows that it makes absolute sense to also use agile principles in brownfield projects with quality-driven development (QDD/TDD).

Faster test management with optimum framework

Faster test management with optimum framework

New tools do not always have to be used in order to support the test process. bbv showed a Swiss insurance company that existing tools can also be optimised to deliver the best possible benefits and reduce costs at the same time.

Development of a device for detecting cervical cancer

Development of a device for detecting cervical cancer

An analysis device was to be developed swiftly for the HPV virus in order to diagnose cervical cancer at an early stage. Thanks to agile software development and test-driven development, bbv was able to fulfil the ambitious goal and deliver high-quality software. The C# development relied on the existing customer framework for the solution.

Use of agile testing methods for improved quality and cost control

Use of agile testing methods for improved quality and cost control

The use of scrum methods in software development necessitates a major shift in testing too, since testing in agile projects differs significantly from classic testing. bbv supported Swisscom by providing agile test experts and achieved a higher test quality.
