skyWATS.com lets you quickly start pushing test data to the cloud, enabling your organization to prioritize and make high-impact decisions.
A common challenge for modern business leaders is converting operational data into insight, letting them focus the attention of their valuable employees to where they adds the most value for the company. Within the test segment of the OEM industry the awareness of data-value has been rapidly increasing over the past years, both as a mechanism to drive internal improvement initiatives and as a way to position the test organization as a strategic asset to the firm; the opposite of a necessary cost at the end of the development cycle, whose main purpose is giving a "check mark" before the product can be shipped out to the impatient customer.
Almost all OEMs today has a data strategy that encapsulates test data. Unfortunately the management of such is most often implemented in consistency with the impression of test as primarily an expense line on the balance report; inhouse developed ad-hoc projects, oblivious to existing best-practices from industry leaders and imperative factors needed to gain a positive ROI on the time spent managing data.
