The GovUnited project also covers the development of various components and a number of (complex) e-services such as the integral catering-business and environmental permits. The components include a document and content management system, a corporate and data warehouse, a product and services catalogue, a geo warehouse, and support for DigiD (Dutch Digital Identity system) and an Internet pay desk, etc. The solution also includes the connection with a variety of back-office systems, for permits or civil affairs, etc. Logica developed the mid-office, Green Valley the front-office. Duties: • Set up testing process by drawing up master test plan, planning, and setting up findings registration • Responsible for and supervising test team of three testers From April 2008 to August 2008 (5 months) Test Competence Officer of Result Centre @ The results centre is Logica’s software factory. Its mission is to develop quality software in a predictable way (more cost and time effective). This process of better, cheaper, faster, and predictable software development is achieved by applying methodologies such as Cortex, RUP, PRINCE 2, Testframe, and Requirement Risk-Based Testing (RRBT). (The focus used to be on the re-use of knowledge and commitment of offshore assets.)

This offers possibilities for managed testing and the delivery of test services according to SLAs. Managed testing makes it possible to measure the test process and manage the test products. This not only increases the quality of the system, but also highlights the additional value of the tests. Duties: part of the assignment is the elaboration of a service description. This includes vision development regarding the outsourcing of the test process, the organization of field testing, and the delivery of test services as part of managed testing. I specifically focus on service-based testing. This part is the standard test process and includes the following components: planning, analysis, test execution, and the management of the test ware. The elaboration presented insights into the process engineering and didactic learning of the tooling used at the results centre to map processes (i.e., Rational Composer). At the centre, they are also busy completing the whitepaper and vision document on managed testing. During a road show, the products from the first phase of managed testing will be presented, including the elaborated test process.

Current forms (paper or PDF) were converted into electronic forms: e-forms (based on XML). The advantage of e-forms is that one set of questions may suffice to serve several receiving parties. The forms can also be made “intelligent” by including problem trees. Data re-use is also promoted because consumers and companies may use data already known to government agencies (Dutch municipal database, Dutch Basic Business Register, and previously authorized permits). Duties: • Setting up/organizing test process • Writing test plan • Planning and drawing up budget • Drawing up findings procedure From February 2007 to July 2007 (6 months) Test Coordinator/Test Analyst/Test Executer @ GPS (Dutch judicial processes system) project @ In the GPS project, the then current COMPOSER system was substituted for the GPS system.

Duties: • Setting up test organization: drawing up standard processes (process issue management) and determining how to approach the GAT tests • Supervising GAT testers, managing findings, and attending findings consultations • Manual execution of smoke/intake tests • Drawing up test clusters and linking them to the test script to register the quality of the system From August 2006 to February 2007 (7 months) Member, technical working group (TWG) within Result Centre @ TWG tries to improve the testing process that includes the two methodologies that are applied within the results centre, Testframe and RUP.
