Squashing bugs is good for your bottom line: the importance of defect management

Defect management is a simple yet key activity of application development. If an application has too many bugs to function properly, it simply won’t be used. While defects inevitably appear during and even after development, a reliable defect manager can minimise their impact on a project’s cost and delivery. Defect management clearly plays a crucial role within any programme.

AI-Led Technology Delivery

AI-Led Technology Delivery

In this paper, we explore the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and an intelligence-led delivery model to optimise management and improve decision-making. In doing so, we offers firms a way to reduce the direct costs of management as well as broader IT spend through improved success rates and the elimination of failure.
