Taking clients to the next level of automation with model-based testing, Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and Tricentis entered into an alliance relationship that integrates the Tricentis Tosca Testsuite into Accenture’s application testing services. This will help clients use intelligent testing across multiple platforms in order to launch new applications quickly and manage risk more easily.
Tricentis is a continuous testing company and market leader in agile software testing solutions for enterprises. Its integrated software testing solution, Tosca Testsuite, consists of a unique model-based test automation and test case design approach, encompassing risk-based testing, test data management, provisioning, and service virtualization. This helps drive significant performance improvements to testing projects with automation rates that can reach over 90 percent1.
“Our approach to ecosystem innovation seeks to break the boundaries between service and tool providers, ensuring seamless collaboration so that clients can take advantage of end-to-end touchless test automation capabilities,” said Kishore Durg, managing director and global testing lead for Accenture. “This new alliance with Tricentis builds on our open testing ecosystem to bring the latest in testing automation, intelligent testing, touchless testing and digital testing to our clients.”
Accenture is incorporating the Tosca Testsuite into its touchless testing approach for enterprise applications, which seamlessly integrates the best capabilities from leading providers across the entire toolchain, beginning with requirements, to achieve end-to-end touchless test automation. Accenture has developed an industry-specific reusable testing repository comprising more than 75,000 test scenarios, scripts, and conditions across 33 industries. Through a jointly developed add-in, these reusable test components can be easily imported into the Tricentis Tosca Testsuite. Combining Accenture’s deep industry vertical and testing acumen with Tricentis’ advanced model-based testing experience, clients would be able to significantly accelerate their testing automation and drive down the test design effort.
For a European insurance client, Accenture used Tosca to drive innovation and agile automation across the delivery lifecycle. By providing unattended test execution for major business processes and establishing an organization-wide test factory, the insurer was able to increase productivity five-fold and reduce testing costs by over 40 percent.
“We’re pleased to expand our relationship with Accenture, which already has the most trained and certified Tosca resources in the world,” said Sandeep Johri, CEO of Tricentis. “Working together, we can disrupt traditional testing methods to help our clients deliver a seamless DevOps experience and thrive in the digital era.”
Accenture’s certified Tosca consultants also bring deep industry and business process understanding to help clients achieve an end to end automation, and leverage an expansive repository of 75,000 industry-specific test artifacts to further accelerate test design.
