Testing Centers of Excellence

Does your company keep reinventing the testing wheel?

Despite investment in QA people, processes and tools, many companies don't see better application quality. A Testing Center of Excellence provides the consistency, governance, and structure to improve efficiency - from project to project.

Traditional QA Under Pressure

Many companies can't keep pace with the business demands for new technology and applications. For Quality Assurance, this means:

  • Little or no visibility into application quality across projects, so deployment decisions made on incomplete information
  • Inability to fully control and measure application quality, leading to higher operating costs and delays in delivery schedules
  • Teams don't have the supporting tools to share and reuse assets and knowledge.

A Virtual and Centralized Command Center that Delivers

Our TCoE lets you to manage all your resources more efficiently to ensure quality across applications, and build a culture that focuses on quality and collaboration. We use our standardized Testing Methodology (TMap®) and integrate HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) technology to provide a comprehensive software environment, share assets, and provide full traceability.

A Testing Center of Excellence brings you these benefits

  • Optimized use of existing resources: QA budgets, tools, environments and people
  • Faster time-to-market: Test times reduce by 30% and test automation levels of 50-70%
  • Cost efficiency: Typical resource cost reduction is 35% over a 3-year time frame
  • Optimized application quality and performance: Reduce risk of failure and leakage of high-severity defects to under 2% and improved customer experience
  • Tighter alignment: Align quality effort more tightly with business needs by defining and measuring KPIs
  • Increased agility: Respond to new business challenges better and allocate your quality team’s time by priority

Together with Sogeti and HP, we plan, implement, and execute your TCoE, using a phased approach; integrating HP Application Lifecycle Management, aligned to your company’s readiness for transition and your business goals.
