Managed Testing Services: ING
Outsourcing testing results in a 50% reduction in test effort.
ING REIM initiated an internal programme to improve the efficiency and reliability of the management information exchange between ING REIM, its administrative controllers and its clients.
Before the new system could be piloted and launched, all new and modified software for data exchange and processing had to be thoroughly tested.
Sogeti’s solution was based on its Managed Testing Service. The service comprised of an onsite test manager at the client's location in the Netherlands, supported by a team of Sogeti resources based offshore in India.
The new system was successfully launched, and through the Rightshore® combination of onshore and offshore sourcing, Sogeti achieved a 50% reduction in test effort, primarily through taking maximum advantage of the standardization of the tests.
“I knew Sogeti to be a professional test service provider, and the structured approach to testing and the test results gave us good insight into the quality of the various software components. The solution with a test manager onsite and Indian testers, initially in the Netherlands and later offshore in India, worked excellently.”
