Time: 10:30-11:15

Session Description

In today's cost-competitive environment, organizations are calling for innovation at all levels of the QA enterprise, be it execution, approach to process and overall QA deliverable. Delivering more with less - without compromising on quality - is not only a requirement but also a way of life for QA enterprises.

The session explains the approach and experience of how Swiss Re, along with Infosys, defined a successful testing organization that is well equipped to meet the needs of today’s agile and compliant organization.

This partnership that started as a project-based service, has today evolved and matured into a managed service model. The journey to managed service model was executed in a more structured way with creation of reusable frameworks in testing process, knowledge management, test automation, testing tools testing metrics, etc.

With this centralized QA organization, along with the managed services model, internal clients are being effectively and efficiently serviced, with the ability to scale to satisfy client requests on time and within budget. This has enabled Swiss Re QA organization to realize a cost savings of over 40% over the last three years with 97% adherence to quality, making Infosys a true business partner.
