"Our testing teams at Blue Cross NC were relatively new with mixed levels of experience, process documentation, and reviews from the rest of our IT Delivery organization. We needed to make a change and embark on a journey to continually improve our testing and delivery processes in order to reach our IT goal of “Delivering with Quality.” TMMi certification process was a game changer to help us get there. TMMi provided us with a clear framework for all processes that make up IT software testing, as well as the delivery process as a whole. Identifying the gaps and closing them was our focus to achieve quality & continuous process improvements were key success factor throughout our journey to achieve highest test maturity TMMi level 5. Step-by-step, our team built and improved processes; test systems; and knowledge management using the TMMi standards as a guide. We then inspected and improved some more. The entire IT Delivery organization bought in and saw the quality improvements as we progressed. Quality is now imbedded in our delivery. We have now achieved certification, but the TMMi framework continues to help guide continuous improvement"

"Guangdong Rural Credit Union achieved their TMMi level 4 in 2020, becoming the first banking financial institution in the Chinese rural credit industry to achieve this certification. Back to 2018 when we started implementing TMMi goals and practices, the test department faced challenges of lacking resources compared with the increased number of test projects and requirements for making quality visible to stakeholders via all kinds of measures. With the implementation of TMMi, we strengthened risk-based testing and streamlined our test processes, which helped us to develop products with high quality testing without increasing the test workforce much. With the implementation of objective based measurement and GQM, for different roles of the (test) organization the visibility of the test projects status and quality of the products being developed was achieved as needed. Other benefits include strengthened test management, a highly valuable test asset database, and a dedicated group of testing professionals. In conclusion, TMMi has been very beneficial for us and highly worth the effort spent."
