Outsourcing the testing of a new management information system results in a 50% reduction in test effort.

The Situation

ING Real Estate Investment Management (ING REIM) is an integrated group engaged in the management of quality real estate in the world’s major markets. With a total portfolio exceeding €65 billion, ING REIM ranks among the leading global real estate companies, serving a broad client base from their offices across Europe, North and South America, Australia and Asia. ING Real Estate Investment Management is part of the global financial services institution, the ING Group.

The Solution

Sogeti’s solution was based on its Managed Testing Service. The service comprised of an onsite test manager in the Netherlands, supported by a team of Sogeti resources based offshore in India. The test was prepared in India, based on the available test bases, together with the development of the necessary test scripts. Then a team in the Netherlands (made up of both Indian and Dutch resources) executed the tests at the client’s location.

The Result

The key results were that the new system was ready to be successfully launched, and that, through the Rightshore® combination of onshore / offshore sourcing, Sogeti achieved a 50% reduction in test effort, primarily through taking maximum advantage of the standardisation of the tests.
