HP has been selected by Future Value Retail Limited-Technology Services (FVRL-TS), a subsidiary of retail conglomerate Future Group, to deliver application testing solutions that accelerate the testing and deployment cycle for its customers.
The Mumbai, India-based FVRL-TS provides business and knowledge process outsourcing services including application testing solutions for Future Retail Limited, Future Lifestyle Fashion Limited and Future Ventures India Limited.
FVRL-TS is eying the worldwide software testing outsourcing market that is expected to reach $50 Billion in 2020.
The company turned to HP to address the challenges in the current testing processes and the lengthy development times for new software applications used for supply chain management, loyalty programs and point of sale.
FVRL-TS selected HP Software to automate and optimize its software application testing business. The company integrated HP Quality Center Software, HP LoadRunner, HP Unified Functional Testing (UFT) and HP WebInspect into its four testing Groups: Automation Testing Group, Performance Testing Group, Test Management Group and Security Testing Group.
After integrating HP solutions, the company has accelerated delivery times and the quality of services offered to its customers, allowing them to automate and innovate faster, FVRL-TS officials said.
HP Quality Center manages test planning and scheduling, defects management and reporting within a single platform, thereby driving collaboration between testing and development teams.
HP LoadRunner provides an accurate picture of the end-to-end performance of a system before it goes live. It also helps FVRL-TS’ Performance Testing Group to ensure new or upgraded applications meet specified performance requirements.
With HP UFT, the Automation Testing Group can automate the functional testing of business process transactions spanning multiple application layers, with the advantage of reducing the cost and complexity of the testing process while enhancing application quality.
The HP WebInspect software will equip FVRL-TS security managers with real-world hacking techniques and attacks thereby allowing them to analyze complex Web applications services for security vulnerabilities and efficiently manage test results.
