Business growth, customer experience and optimization are driving clients towards ambitious digital journeys through cloud adoption. Despite the increasing popularity of cloud, its transformation and migration journeys are often riddled with challenges due to the dynamic nature of the cloud environment. Organizations face a range of issues in their cloud journeys:  

  • Infrastructure instability issues like configuration failures, network connectivity, reliability, security, service availability etc.
  • Cloud data migration related issues like data model design issues, data truncation and data loss issues, missing or duplicate record issues
  • Functional issues like container-based integration between applications, application availability, compatibility issues, interoperability issues, services integration issues
  • Non-functional issues like resiliency, scalability, benchmark metrics, continuous monitoring, single point failures and failover

This in turn increases total cost of ownership and at the same time adversely impacts customer loyalty and sales conversions. To accelerate time-to-market, organizations need holistic testing solutions that cater to various cloud transformation journeys.

Infosys Cloud Testing offering, part of Infosys Cobalt, empowers organizations to address these challenges with shift-left and shift-right testing offerings for all cloud transformation related use cases e.g. Custom Application migration, Data on Cloud, Legacy Modernization, Cloud Native Application, SaaS packages.

We offer a layered & automation first approach to validate transformations that leverage Poly/ Multi Cloud deployment models (Public, Private, Community & Hybrid) and service models (IaaS, PaaS & SaaS). Our assessment framework provides a strategy to determine the scope of testing (type & coverage) degree based on the various migration disposition types (Rehost, Refactor, Re-Platform, Rearchitect, Remediate etc.).

Infosys Cloud Testing offering focusses on four key areas in the Digital Transformation pyramid:

  • Infrastructure Testing:
    • Cloud Platform Validation – Validation of landing zones as well as foundation for desired state configurations through Operational Acceptance Testing, Operational Readiness Testing
    • Operational Readiness – Testing of Disaster Recovery, Fail-over, High availability and Resiliency
  • Data Testing
    • Data Migration Testing – Testing for Datacentre migration from on-premise source to cloud target
    • Data Lake Validation – Validation of Data Lake being setup on Cloud, Data ingestion test, Test Data Management
  • Functional Testing
    • Validation of Cloud Native microservices and containerized applications on Cloud
    • Testing of legacy applications being modernized and migrated to Cloud
  • Non-Functional Testing
    • Performance - Reliability, Chaos engineering, Resiliency, High availability, and Scalability of Applications on Cloud
    • Security Vulnerability - Validation on Cloud across IaaS, PaaS & SaaS - OWASP, Penetration, Encryption and IAM tests

The offering leverages Infosys IPs, open source technologies, accelerators and marketplace solutions to uncover anomalies and give complete coverage in the testing life cycle to fast-track quality delivery.
