Webinar Highlights

The ability to rapidly develop enterprise applications has increased measurably and is surpassing conventional testing processes. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and service-based computing have increased the level of complexity and change throughout the application development lifecycle, threatening the quality and reliability of critical business software. Addressing risks inherent in the new paradigm of distributed applications requires a new approach to quality that is shared across development, testing and delivery teams.

Infosys brings in decades of testing best practices and expertise. We leverage iTKO’s LISA software suite as an important enabler for our Application Test and Validation offerings. Infosys-iTKO LISA combination employs complete, collaborative, continuous and constraint-free testing and virtualization practices. It enables modern application projects to achieve higher quality, faster time-to-market, and lower costs throughout the software lifecycle.

Attend the webinar to learn about:

  • The current software quality trends and why a new approach is necessary to test distributed and modern applications
  • How Infosys provides the right testing coverage for distributed, middle-tier application infrastructure leveraging iTKO’s LISA product suite
  • How Infosys and iTKO’s LISA enabled Fortune 1000 companies to deliver new applications below budget and ahead of schedule

Appropriate for architects, QA, development and project managers, this webinar will help you accelerate time-to-market for your business applications while minimizing project risk and cost.
