"Did I buy the right solution? Is it built right? How do I know?"
Acato's collaborative, systematic approach to Software Quality Assurance (SQA) and Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) throughout the software life-cycle cultivates quality mindsets and team ownership.
Our processes comply with DOE Order 415.1, Information Technology Project Management and best practices from the Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).
Acato has fully embraced Agile tenets and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to successfully meet or exceed our Customers' projects' demands for quality and schedule.
Quality, as it pertains to software tools, means that the resulting applications enable their users to efficiently accomplish daily tasks, to achieve their programmatic objectives and that the results of the applications provide sound information for decision making. Quality in software projects is evidenced by less rework, more reliable schedules, and clear communication for project management. Defects are identified early, as close as possible to the point of introduction where they are the least expensive to resolve and have the least impact on schedule.
