GOMTA is a project funded by the Malta Council for Science and Technology through the National Research and Innovation Programme.

In the financial industry, it is common for software companies to invest up to 50% of development budget on writing automated tests. This is done to minimise the risk of introducing vulnerabilities in a financial system which could cause major financial loss and serious damage to reputation. The quality assurance process is typically performed on test systems and are not always able to cover all scenarios that can occur in a production environment.

This project aims to maximise the return on investment on the testing process by automatically transposing the checks performed during testing to the live environment. With no extra cost to the software company, this will ensure that any potential vulnerabilities are captured instantly, thus eliminating a number of potential losses.
