TMAP evolution

TMAP is a body of knowledge for quality engineering in IT delivery. The strength of TMAP can be largely attributed to the considerable practical experience that is the basis for the body of knowledge. This experience comes from thousands of IT professionals in as many projects over the last twenty-five years.

TMAP was created in 1995 and back then mainly contained a process description for testing. Over the years, TMAP has evolved from process-driven, business-driven and human-driven to a body of knowledge with which quality assurance & testing activities can be integrated in all IT delivery models. The body of knowledge contains a wide range of approaches, good practices, techniques and tools for organizing and performing of activities related to quality assurance and testing of IT systems.

Today we use TMAP as a term on its own, rather than a meaningful abbreviation. For this reason TMAP is now written with four capital letters.
