Quality & Testing for Financial Services

With over 2,700 test professionals devoted to financial services, we combine deep domain expertise with award-winning quality assurance tools, methodologies and accelerators to provide the full spectrum of testing services to leading financial institutions.

The Financial Services World Quality Report 2012 identifies key priorities for testing organizations within financial services firms:

  • Broaden the scope of outsourcing to acquire capabilities, support innovation and optimize costs. Capgemini and Sogeti’s global testing organization came out #1 among 13 major vendors in Ovum’s 2011 benchmarking study of testing services.

  • Adopt a Center of Excellence model for testing to gain agility, improve service quality and optimize testing efforts. Explore how to benchmark your testing organization against other financial services firms with our Quality Blueprint™ assessment and see how Capgemini can help you plan your path forward
  • Evaluate how to use the cloud as a test environment or pay-per-use model and learn how to address real and perceived risks. Our FS operational risk specialists work with Capgemini testing professionals to help you manage the risks unique to financial services institutions when considering the cloud for testing.
  • Build skills to test mobile applications and leverage automation to keep up with technology innovations. Capgemini uses a Model Based Testing approach to automate and accelerate testing efforts for common FS applications such as SWIFT, Guidewire and TSYS. This approach helps us quickly build test tools and assets for new technologies like mobile OS as they emerge.
  • Ensure end-to-end security testing extends across the full scope of your FS IT landscape: applications, infrastructure, networks and data. Capgemini’s Quality Blueprint™ assessment helps you identify areas not covered by current testing activities while our full range of testing services can support your efforts to build a Testing Center of Excellence.
  • Quantify the value QA is bringing to your business with benchmark metrics such as competency, productivity and defect tracking. Our proven testing tools and methodologies use built-in metrics for tracking and reporting purposes so you can measure the effectiveness of your efforts.
