San Mateo, CA and Chennai, INDIA— September 8, 2015 – Tricentis, global leader in enterprise software testing solutions that accelerate business innovation and TCS, a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced a strategic partnership to collaborate within the realm of Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing.
According to analysts, companies spend over $60B per year or 23% of their IT budget on QA and testing. TCS’ Assurance Services Unit (ASU) is a market leader in addressing, both business and quality challenges of global enterprises, empowering them to optimize overheads, reduce time to market and improve customer satisfaction. As part of the agreement, Tricentis and TCS will work together to create automated QA and Testing solutions and a Center of Excellence (CoE) to help enterprises significantly reduce IT spend on QA and Testing.
Tricentis Tosca Testsuite increases the productivity of QA teams by automating over 90 percent of test cases and allowing customers to manage risk vs. just identifying the number of test cases. By leveraging Tricentis’ Test Case Design, enterprises also reduce the number of test cases necessary to execute. The combination of greater automation, increased risk coverage and a lower number of test cases dramatically reduces testing time, effort and cost. As a result, Tricentis and TCS are a perfect fit for development teams leveraging agile, continuous development and DevOps concepts who are experiencing lengthy test cycles.
“Assurance and risk management are strategic initiatives for both companies” stated Franz Fuchsberger, Co-founder and CSO, Tricentis. “It was natural for Tricentis and TCS to partner and collaborate strategically in order to ensure that our joint customers have the best and most advanced testing solution on the market.”
Commenting on the partnership, Siva Ganesan, Vice President and Global Head of Assurance Services, TCS, said, “Quality Assurance and Testing Services are imperative to succeed in this hyper-competitive market.
