Rudolf van Megen, CEO of SQS Group, will be speaking at QUEST 2011, on the subject of ‘SQS Managed Services for Software Testing’. Through SQS Managed Services, businesses only pay for ‘what they use’, have access to a global delivery team and work with a pure-play independent testing consultancy, so benefitting from a clear division between implementation and testing teams. The presentation will take place on Wednesday April 6th at 1:30 – 2.00 pm as part of the QUEST Theatre Talks.

“SQS’ approach is to move away from purely time and materials arrangements to output-based consultancy which provides true value-add to the client,” explains Rudolf van Megen.

At QUEST, SQS – Booth 20 - will be presenting its Managed Services in Software Testing, which help businesses to reduce risk, cut costs and streamline operations. Services range from ‘Test and Quality Management support’ to ‘Load and Performance Testing &Tuning’, and ‘Certification and Automation Services’.

Yann Gloaguen, Global Services Director, SQS Group, will also be speaking at QUEST 2011, as part of the Industry Practices Sessions, on the subject of ‘Transforming Outsourcing Relationships’. His presentation, scheduled for 9.45 am on Thursday 7th April, will discuss common engagement challenges and explain how to set up governance models to ensure there are no gaps between expected and actual service levels and outcomes.

Throughout the event, the SQS team will provide businesses with key information necessary when deciding on a Managed Services partner, including:
• How to ensure their implementation partner supports an independent software testing provider
• Potential ROI through combined Managed Services and test automation
• The benefits of output-based pricing

SQS' order intake for 2010, for its Managed Services division, exceeded 50 million Euros. Recent major wins include three year contracts with both Specsavers, the world’s largest privately owned optical group, involving a 50 strong SQS testing team, and Deutsche Bank to carry out software and system integration tests.

SQS offers a range of fully managed services, designed to free in-house testing teams to concentrate on business critical testing issues or to operate where skills do not exist within the corporate testing team.

QUEST 2011 provides a week of classes, tutorials, educational sessions, hands-on workshops, discussion groups, and networking events for quality and testing professionals around the world. QUEST’s 68 unique learning opportunities address topics of highest interest to practitioners in their quest to build today’s skills and prepare for the quality and testing profession of the future.
