Edge Testing Appoints New Head of Technical Testing to Continue Their Expansion

Edge Testing are pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Martland as Head of Technical Testing to continue the growth and expansion of Edge’s capability across automation and performance testing. 
 
Systems are becoming more complex in the modern app environment, with cloud based services making interoperability more critical than ever and regularly facing challenges such as testing a new back-end service without the front end being available yet.
 
All this makes the technical aspects of testing business critical and companies are starting to understand this dependency.
 
Dan said “When Brian [Brian Ferrie, Founder & CEO Edge Testing] asked me to head up the Technical Testing capability within Edge and build on the great work the company is already doing in this space, I was really excited to take on that challenge. This is a growth area in the market and clients need expert support on how to address these technical challenges effectively. I’ve seen companies who thought they had tested their system properly, only to have them fail within minutes of going live. We want to make sure this never happens to our clients”
 
Having 20 years of IT development experience across analysis, design and testing Dan has developed a deep understanding of the technical aspects of systems and how to assure their successful delivery. Career achievements include architecting the testing of critical parts of the UK’s 24/7 financial backbone; automating testing solutions in the nuclear and pharmaceutical industries and advising major government departments on how to implement automation, non-functional testing and agile testing principles.
