Capgemini Group one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that the company is reinforcing its global expertise in mobile solutions with the launch of a Mobile Testing Center of Excellence (CoE) in Mumbai, India. The Center of Excellence, led by global mobile solutions and testing experts from Capgemini and Sogeti will be equipped with the latest mobile testing specific tools and infrastructure both developed in-house and by industry leading partners. The CoE will deliver services such as Mobile Performance Testing, Mobile Functional Testing, Mobile Compatibility Testing, Mobile Usability Testing, and Mobile Security Testing.

The CoE will act as a hub for Mobile Testing services across the globe with other Mobile Testing Centers of Excellence such as Sogeti High Tech in Grenoble, France and will work closely with experts in other countries including the United States, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands, ensuring a strong Rightshore® approach.

Shailendra Jha, Vice President, Rightshore Testing, Capgemini India said, “We are confident that the establishment of our new Center of Excellence will give us a strong position in adding value to our clients’ business needs by providing efficient delivery of mobile testing services. The center provides mobile test experts with ready to go mobile test solutions and test environment for projects we run for our clients.”

Ajay Sharma, Enterprise Mobility Expert, Capgemini India said: “As mobile adoption has become almost universal in developed markets and is rapidly growing, we believe that mobile testing needs to be fully integrated so that mobile enterprise strategy takes testing into account right from the start. The focus now will be on testing quality as mobility will change the way IT functions within many organisations”.

Through the CoE, the company will utilize a wide variety of mobile testing tools such as Perfecto Mobile, NeoLoad, and Robotium. To address the challenge of platform fragmentation and usability testing, the Center of Excellence will be permanently equipped with a core set of physical devices covering all major device families and operating systems. This will be combined with a private cloud solution that enables testing to be carried out from any of Capgemini Group’s physical locations.

Capgemini and Sogeti launched a Global Service Line for Mobile Solutions earlier in 2012. The company is currently engaged in projects for some of the largest brands in the world and holds strategic alliances with technology leaders including IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Google and SAP.

Capgemini Group is ranked #1 for testing services by Ovum and recognized by other industry analysts such as IDC and NelsonHall as occupying a market leadership position. Increasingly, clients across the globe are turning to the Capgemini Group for a structured approach to quality assurance for all kinds of solutions.
