Both aspects are necessary as a system meeting its specifications does not necessary mean it is technically correct and vice versa. GlobalEdge takes care of all these aspects of verification and validation. Verification, validation, and certification are essential in the life cycle of any solution. The development of any systemis incomplete without rigorous testing and verification that the implementation is consistent with the specifications.
