Wipro Technologies makes strategic investment in CAST platform to deliver superior structural quality deliverables to customers

 

NEW YORK, November 8, 2012 CAST, the world leader in Software Analysis and Measurement (SAM), today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Wipro Technologies, the Global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing business of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT) to equip its most eminent delivery centers with the CAST Application Intelligence Platform for Quality.

The CAST Application Intelligence Platform is the only solution in the market that analyzes and measures applications against the emerging CISQ (Consortium for IT Software Quality – www.it-cisq.org) standards that encapsulate system-level coding and architecture best practices for security, reliability, performance efficiency and maintainability. By deploying CAST, Wipro is de facto positioning itself to effectively respond to customers’ SLAs which are increasingly including structural quality requirements.

Suresh B, VP Application Management Services at Wipro Technologies said, “Wipro considers CAST as a strategic investment, in its endeavor to take its Application Development practice to the next level of maturity. We fundamentally believe standardized product quality is the next step in the evolution of software engineering. Our partnership with CAST, the leading solution in this market, will give us a major competitive advantage and provide significant value to our customers.”

Through this investment, Wipro is differentiating against competition by augmenting its ability to handle a larger number of high-end Application Development engagements, featuring more mission-critical systems for end-customers. From the transition phase, where CAST will help Wipro de-risk the whole process for the benefits of its clients, to the steady-state stage where Wipro will apply the lean principles to Application development a step further using CAST, Wipro is now able to provide enhanced level of maturity in software development, improving the overall quality of the deliverables for its customers.

Additionally, through their CAST Center of Excellence, Wipro will start confidently pushing structural quality-based offerings powered by CAST to its prospects and customers. Enhanced Independent Validation and Verification (IVV) or end-to-end QA offerings will help to detect the most severe defects that escape current testing practices. Similarly, Wipro will enhance the QA capabilities embedded in ADM SDLC, to offer an even leaner “shift-to-the-left” quality approach to the market.

Marc Zablit, WW EVP Business Development at CAST comments: “I am delighted CAST now helps Wipro to deliver higher-quality applications to its customers. Wipro management clearly shows an advanced vision in embedding CISQ/SEI compliance in its ADM business.”
