The True Value of Quality

Your software development project is on schedule and under budget. Each phase of design and development has gone as planned. You see the delivery date and then it happens – your testers find more defects than anticipated and the schedule is at risk. Your timeline and your budget both begin to grow.

The true value of testing comes when you don’t see defects at the end of your production cycle. In order to accomplish this goal a well-planned approach must be in place.

Bleum’s high performance software testing teams bring a comprehensive and structured approach to the testing process, which manages quality from the beginning of the software development lifecycle.

The team systematically builds quality and defect-free code at each stage of production and release. We leverage the latest testing technology and process methodology, including both automated and manual test programs that further optimize the entire operation, minimizing risk, cost, time and improving overall performance.

CMMI Maturity Level 5

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a methodology used to develop and refine an organization’s software development process. The model describes a five-level evolutionary path of increasingly organized and systematically more mature processes.

The focus for Maturity Level 5 is on continuous process improvement, so that the impact of new processes and technologies can be predicted and effectively implemented when required.

Bleum was one of the first companies in China to achieve CMM Level 5, in 2005, and following our fourth appraisal in July 2016, this places us among an elite number of companies that have achieved CMMI Level 5 on multiple occasions.

Why Bleum?

Our Record on Zero Defect Projects

Our record speaks for itself.

More than 50% of projects for our customers are zero defect. That means that no major defect escaped into the production release and it makes Bleum a true industry leader in high quality development.

Finding Defects Early

By finding defects earlier in the release cycle we provide substantially better ROI.

At Bleum we’ve calculated that defect removal is 72% more expensive in the rest of the industry than it is for us. That means that for every $100 spent on defect removal at the industry average, due to our CMMI approach it only costs our customers $58.

Defects found earlier in the development cycle are much cheaper to fix - using CMMI means defects around found earlier, and therefore fixed cheaper
