Voyage for Progress
PinnacleQM, was founded in February 2014 by Gary Jenn and Ian Charlton: two passionate Quality Management and Test Services professionals, each with over 28 years’ experience across international industries. Their visionary leadership created a dynamic business, specifically tailored for Agile and DevOps delivery models.[Charlton, “Customers often blindly follow the crowd in perceived DevOps vision, tools and solutions available. In a race to embrace a DevOps journey, they often fail to understand significant changes required of their organizations. Following ill-informed views of DevOps, taking on significant technical automation coding debt (many times larger than the code used in the systems under test)”.]
PinnacleQM continues to focus upon putting its customers first, enabling efficient and scalable DevOps delivery services.[Jenn, “PinnacleQM aims to be the best at what it does, satisfied clients DevOps journey needs using innovation and technology to scale and overachieve outcomes. We could offer delivery models using large delivery teams, typically found in the market today. But we choose to offer customers scalable value, innovation and collaborative solutions”.]
Enabling business and cultural shifts with a clear roadmap of the DevOps journey and Goals is a critical first step in business planning. PinnacleQM provides Strategy and Advisory services, utilizing leading industry experts from the US, Europe and APAC.

Sustaining and efficiently scaling DevOps is the next focus, leveraging leading technologies and innovation to drive scale and capacity regardless of the system technology landscape. PinnacleQM Delivery Services enable and support customers on their day-today delivery journeys. These include Agile and DevOps coaching and leadership to drive delivery outcomes via test automation services, and platforms as a service.
Development-led Quality Management and Testing used to get changes into production quickly, but failures have a severe impact on quality, usability and end-user perception. PinnacleQM believes that the inclusion of business users and customer experience is more important to ensure the value of the change made, over how quickly the change can be made.[Charlton, “We are seeing trends in high profile production outages and significant impacts to the end customer”. As ‘end customers’ we haveto question the benefit of companies making change for changes sake?”]
[Jenn adds: “Change is only welcomed and valued by end users if there is tangible or at least a perceived improvement. For ‘end customers’ constant system updates often feels like a death from a thousand paper cuts”.]
PinnacleQM works with many DevOps teams, the continuous build and integration task has taken teams onto a path where open source and freeware tools are seen to be the only viable and cost-effective solution. Often, integration, support, configuration, and effort to code and maintain many of these products is more costly than mainstream vendor products. PinnacleQM intends to continue to innovate to overcome these constraints and provides a more effective solution to the wider industries in which it serves.
PinnacleQM focuses upon driving DevOps efficiency with smarter automation and improved cross team collaboration overcoming the challenges of ‘me too DevOps’. PinnacleQM’s Automation Services utilize leading AI and Machine Learning technologies that use natural language manual test scripts, that support any technology and any test type. Tests are uploaded and automatically executed by the AI automation platform. PinnacleQM utilizes technology platforms to scale test execution capacity and can execute any number of tests within a defined 24/7 period making daily releases consisting of all test types an achievable outcome.

With collaboration, transparency, and flexibility at the forefront of its DevOps solutions, PinnacleQM is already at the next generation of DevOps, shifting the balance of power from development and technical code, back to more collaborative, shared set of skills.[Jenn, “Current models of development-focused delivery solutions do not enable collaboration, alienating business and non-technical teams. They fail to provide transparency and clarity in coverage and impact of change. PinnacleQM aims to change and significantly improve these impediments”.]
