Wipro and CAST deliver good Application Services
New Delhi, India, December 9, 2013: Wipro, a leading global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing company, has announced that its year-long partnership with CAST, a player in software analysis and measurement, has resulted in delivery of good application services to its customers, across industry sectors.
Wipro’s ‘AppInsight Center of Excellence (CoE)’, powered by CAST, is boosting application quality to the next level. Designed for large organizations with complex IT landscapes, AppInsight CoE assesses the structural quality of applications and provides critical insights into application resiliency, performance bottlenecks and security vulnerabilities. This is highly relevant in today’s technology environment, where most IT solutions are implemented by integrating a set of custom and industry standard solutions. CAST provides a single integrated platform to discover software flaws across these diverse solutions.
With a strong focus on application quality, Wipro has adopted Total Quality Index (TQI) as the primary metric to monitor its project deliverables. During the last year, Wipro has utilized CAST analytics on project sizing and structural quality to significantly improve the TQI of critical systems. As one of the industry’s firsts, Wipro is now able to baseline and benchmark structural quality of applications across verticals to further reduce software risk and total cost of ownership (TCO) for its customers.
Bhanumurthy B M, Senior Vice President, Business Application Services, Wipro, said: “Wipro’s partnership with CAST is a strategic one and we consider it to be an important asset in our application services portfolio. This partnership has enabled fact-based insight into the state of systems and processes and demonstrated faster and predictable delivery, thereby improving software health and resiliency for our customers.”
In the areas of Application Management Services, CAST has helped Wipro cut down on transition risks and build online knowledge repositories for faster knowledge transfer and incident resolutions.
CEO of CAST Vincent Delaroche said, “CAST is delighted to be associated with Wipro in its journey towards advanced structural analysis and measurement based on emerging CISQ standards. With CAST, Wipro is clearly able to differentiate itself from competition in providing superior services and high quality solutions to its customers.”
