Steria becomes first IT Services organisation in India to conduct TMMi eSurveys

Noida, Uttar Pradesh; Chennai, Tamil Nadu; Pune, Maharashtra, India, Tuesday, January 31, 2012 — (Business Wire India) — Steria India partners with Experimentus to become among the first organisations in India to offer Test Maturity Model Integrated (TMMi) e-surveys.

Steria India, a leading provider of IT enabled business services, and Experimentus, the software quality management consulting firm, today announced a strategic partnership to service the growing needs of the Testing and Quality Assurance (QA) community in India.

This follows the launch of the three part Steria RightTestingTM service in February which helps clients identify the critical risk and quick-win opportunities in testing operations and improve quality, enhancing Steria’s existing Consultancy offering.

This partnership will streamline the development process, helping Steria customers to identify the strengths and weaknesses across the full software development life cycle, challenging the traditional testing model. This will highlight issues that need to be addressed in setup to ensure the best products and services are brought to market.

TMMi has become a well respected industry acclaimed standard against which organisations can measure and improve software testing and quality related processes as well as benchmark their level of maturity. The e-surveys are already used by financial services, telecommunications, media, retail and healthcare organisations in continental Europe, UK, Singapore and India.

Dr. Mukesh Aghi, CEO, Asia Pacific, of Steria said “India is a growing market so it is great to see that both the IT community and Indian organisations have started to understand the value of an independent third party testing gateway testing service. Businesses are constantly on the look out to find ways to improve their internal testing functions and Steria India can provide a quick view into the maturity of testing functions. We are already talking a lot about it to our customers and prospects and they are very excited to get their testing functions assessed to TMMi maturity levels.”

Customers want to know where they stand today and want help in deciding where they can go tomorrow. Ultimately, it is about optimising cost by doing things the right way and making sure that the offerings that are brought to market are the best they can be.

Julian Clarke, director of sales and marketing at Experimentus commented, “We are delighted to be working with Steria India and making the TMMi e-Survey available to the Indian market. Many organisations have previously used TMMi to independently measure and identify improvements in their own test and quality capabilities but more recently we have seen TMMi become part of the evaluation criteria when selecting a supplier which has driven the need for formal TMMi Certification. As a first step towards Improvement or Certification we developed our TMMi e-Survey solution to help quickly identify areas for improvement and provide those organisations wanting formal certification with an informal but useful indication of their maturity level.”
