IT Outsourcing: Infosys- Software Testing

• Consulting services

(5% of IVS revenues). Offerings include quality assurance, program management, and packaged applications (helping client determine what potential problems may arise from the usage of packaged applications and of related customization work)

QA consulting has expanded from testing excellence, validation of requirements to business goals

IVS has developed a methodology for shifting the focus of QA from technical to business. Examples of such shifts include: improving the test life cycle of a datawarehouse of a telecom service provided to increased sales; improving data validation quality to avoid regulatory penalties for an investment bank; improving order management systems availability of a telecom service provider for incremental revenues; proactive performance testing for a financial services firm ‟s risk management portfolio, helping reducing risk.

Of those three main groups of offerings, Infosys is highlighting that most demand lies around specialized offerings and in particular around ERP testing, regulatory compliance and BI/testing data management as well as around QA consulting services.

Cloud Infosys has developed a Testing as a Service (TaaS) offering which include HP testing tools in a pay-per-use model and Infosys testing services. The offering is targeted at clients that have no perpetual license from HP or need to add extra licenses

• The TaaS offering is available on HP tools for test management (HP QC) functional automation Runner)

• Hosting is done by Infosys in its premises, in a third party datacenter (including cloud) or in the client‟s premises, which also provides the underlying IM and maintenance of the tools. Examples of engagement for this offering include

• Moving a managed testing service with delivery from an Infosys TCoE to a TaaS offering. The move was made to accommodate the variations in performance and functional testing

• For a small client that did not want to acquire tools licenses and rela ted maintenance, Infosys is providing test case-based pricing for test automation (including the HP software tool) and performance testing. Overall, the TaaS offering has been most successful in emerging countries and for performance testing. TaaS is one element of a broader cloud-related testing offering IVS has developed. IVS is also involved in testing applications that are ported to a private cloud (or public cloud), conducting non-functional testing e.g. security and performance testing. The cloud testing services follows demand for private clouds, and especially from emerging countries and from mid-sized clients, rather than large enterprises.
