edicos has introduced a quality assurance system at Spar Austria for the further development and operation of its Adobe AEM-based websites. The new processes and quality gates implemented by edicos ensure that website relaunches are timely, cost-efficient and quality-assured, and that the operation always remains stable.
Hanover, 01/10/2018 - The edicos Group, a full-service provider for the design and implementation of corporate websites, enterprise portals and individual business applications, has developed and implemented a comprehensive quality assurance system for Spar Austria's websites for the retail company. This is based on the findings of an IT audit in which edicos analyzed the relevant areas such as requirements management, infrastructure, source codes, development processes, testing and commissioning. The Adobe AEM experts from Hanover used the findings to write a Java development guide and SonarQube rules for development with Adobe AEM (the technical heart of the Spar Websites). In addition, the consultants checked the source codes and optimized focal points. edicos also created the basis to inventory source code and reuse it in the form of a modular system in the future.
For the further development of the Spar websites in-time and in-quality and the always safe operation, edicos has introduced so-called Quality Gates - milestones which decide on the release of the next project process. As a result, the testing was automated; especially with SonarQube in connection with AEM-specific quality profiles.
Conclusion: Important decisions could be made regarding continious development and continious depoyment. In addition, edicos developed guidelines for search engine optimization (SEO), which are now firmly anchored as Quality Gate in the quality processes at Spar.
"With edicos as the quality assurance authority, we can not only significantly reduce our development costs through automated quality gateings, but also significantly optimize the introduction and operation of the websites. With edicos we have a partner on our side who works with us professionally on the digital implementation of our goals for the core markets and further develops our platform" explains Bernhard Hübl, IT Manager at Spar.
