Requirements

Most of the heartburns of projects that have overrun the schedule and costs arise due to gaps in requirements or enormity of change requests. RaceNext has industry standards based tools and techniques to perform and to train in-house personnel to capture, document and track requirements and CRs effectively. Our documentation skills will emphasise on bi-directional traceability between the various project work artefacts.

Systems and Software Quality

At RaceNext, we believe Quality is a time-independent sphere of competence where newcomers can carve out bright careers

QA – Audits Management

We conduct standards based audits. Our checklists are simple, compliant, complete and effective to help you go to the next cycle of PDCA.

Software and Systems Testing

Functional testing for large systems requires genius and a deep understanding of where defects can typically arise. Fortunately we possess both. Our testing methods and documents are guaranteed to impress you. We detect defects before they leak to the customer, and track them to closure.

We fully understand the subtle nuances of testing banking systems with multiple interfaces versus say a refinery SCADA system versus say an HRMS system.

Stress Testing

We are masters of designing tests that will identify the breakpoints and the weak links in the chain. We can tell you whether it is the VMs or the application or the database that is playing truant when you badly need the system to scale up.

Watch out for our next announcement of Master Software Testing Skills program.

Not only do we take up assignments for testing, we also conduct hands-on training programs for individuals on Software and Systems Testing. We have a proprietary assessment program that rates QC professionals on a 5 point capability maturity scale.

Operations Excellence

A penny saved is a penny earned. Efficient operations translates to happy customers and amusingly happy employees. Safety, Security and in short, peace of mind are outcomes of continuously tightening and shining these capabilities.

BPM/BPR/IT Portfolio Rationalisation

Weed out the junk. Stay lithe to maximum opportunity gains. Minimize operations costs and huge AMC bills. Do not wait for systems to reach end of life or end of support. Remove the bottlenecks. Keep current with external changes like regulatory or environmental laws. Do it BEFORE your competitor does. Every spreadsheet and paper form in your organisation, every legacy system is a harsh reminder to re-look at your IT stack and see what should go to make way for the new.

We have tools, techniques and templates to expedite the otherwise time-consuming and cumbersome exercise of cataloguing business processes and their related systems for effective decision making. We have the tricks and the charm to work with your technology team leads and extract the most accurate on-the-ground information.

Team Restructuring

We understand how organizational teams need to take shape. We know how to hire the perfect candidate. Any mistakes in this area will have a strong backlash at the least unexpected moment in the project or operations. Enquire about how large companies manage their HIPO program, their ALP initiatives.

Quality Standards Certification

We can help you with activities leading to certification in the following areas ISO 9001, ISO 27001, CMMi, PRINCE2, CoBiT and ITIL.

Supplier Management: It is almost a science. A happy and a healthy supplier is a hygiene requirement for your projects and operations.
