Sonata launches Sonnet QCheck Test Consulting Services globally
Bangalore, September 16, 2009
Sonata Software today announced that it has launched Sonnet QCheck Test Consulting Services. Based on the Test Maturity Model (TMM), Sonnet QCheck enables organizations to mitigate testing challenges, improve testing efficiencies and reduce overall cost of operations.
Sonnet QCheck is a fixed price and fixed scope consulting offering that usually precedes an extensive Managed Testing Services engagement for the customer. It is built upon Sonata’s A3 (Assess - Advise - Act) methodology that delivers to the client a roadmap and approach to deploy Sonata’s proven Managed Testing Services. At the end of Sonnet QCheck, the customer gets a clear visibility into the test process, resources, tools utilization and optimization, and cost and time implications.
During the “Assessment” stage, Sonata’s Sonnet QCheck Team does a comprehensive study and review of the organization’s existing environment, processes, tools and licenses deployed, and the potential for bringing in efficiencies.
In the “Advise” stage, the team maps the existing approach to the TMM Model, identifies gaps, and recommends measures to enhance the approach. This could include refining the processes, establishing centralized test management systems, and providing tools and techniques for improving the overall setup.
As part of the final “Act” stage, the Sonnet QCheck Team delivers sample Proof of Concepts (PoCs) to validate the benefits of Managed Testing, measure results and focus on delivering early ROI for the engagement.
Mr B Ramaswamy, President and Managing Director, Sonata Software, said, “More companies across geographies are opting for Managed Testing relationships, where the services provider takes on complete ownership of the overall performance of an application and runs all testing functions centrally, driven by Service Level Agreements. Sonnet QCheck offers enterprises a ‘de-risked’ step-by-step approach to a Managed Testing relationship, by identifying any risks upfront and using a PoC to validate the proposed guideline, before committing to the model.”
Speaking on the occasion, Head, Managed Testing and Web Technologies, Mr C V Narayanan commented, “Enterprises that run a high number of software applications internally, across functions and geographies, will significantly benefit from this service. This service provides efficiencies in terms of reduced test cycles and efforts which lead to optimization of the overall cost of quality.”
With this launch, Sonata strengthens its position as a leading provider of Managed Testing Services. Apart from this, Sonata’s Testing services also include Strategy/Consulting, Tools Setup, Automation Testing as well as Performance and Security Testing.
