Side Effect #1 of Improved Reporting: Better Overall Quality
It has improved our quality of work and standards of work.
Antonis Charalambous, a consultant at Unipart Cyber Security, says that a Dradis-generated report is just a "better output in terms of how it looks":
The Dradis reporting process automates the structure and formatting of each report, allowing them to quickly combine the output of multiple tools into one easy-to-read document.
Since using Dradis, they've identified several ways to improve their report templates and are continuing to iterate and improve the structure, format, layout, and content to best serve their customers.
And because the reporting process is automated, they can spend more time thinking about the big picture rather than spending the bulk of their time just putting together a document!
It's eased the quality assurance process in the sense that it's easier to two-way collectively make changes - instead of having multiple iterations of a report.
Since adopting Dradis, the Unipart Cyber Security team has actually been able to do more quality assurance on their reports. Since the information is all in one place, it's easy to make changes or see what others are working on through the revision history.
