Reduce Critical Risks with Independent Verification & Validation

Skipping proper Verification and Validation (V&V) procedures in application development can lead to significant risks and potential consequences that can affect not just the immediate usability and functionality of the application but also its long-term viability and the organization’s reputation. Here are three main risks associated with bypassing these critical processes:

Increased Defects and Lower Quality

Verification and Validation are core processes designed to ensure that an application meets its requirements and specifications (Verification) and fulfils its intended purpose effectively in a real-world scenario (Validation). Skipping these steps often results in software that is riddled with bugs, defects, and inconsistencies. This not only degrades the quality of the application but also leads to a poor user experience. The effort and cost to fix these issues post-launch can be significantly higher than addressing them during the development phase through proper V&V procedures.

Security Vulnerabilities

Without thorough Verification and Validation, applications are more likely to have security weaknesses and vulnerabilities. These issues can lead to unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security incidents that compromise user data and the integrity of the application. The consequences of such incidents can be severe, including legal repercussions, financial loss, and damage to the organization’s reputation. Ensuring the application is secure against potential threats is a critical component of the V&V process.

Non-Compliance with Standards and Regulations

Many industries have specific standards and regulatory requirements related to software development and data handling (e.g., GDPR in Europe, PDPA in Malaysia). Skipping V&V processes increases the risk of non-compliance with these standards and regulations. This oversight can result in legal penalties, fines, and mandatory corrections, which can be costly and damage the organization’s credibility and trustworthiness.
