Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has been recognized by HP with the Application Implementation Partner of the Year Award at HP Software Universe 2010. Working together for more than 18 years, Capgemini and HP have leveraged their alliance to provide solutions for major financial services clients.

During the awards ceremony at HP Software Universe 2010, Capgemini’s sales and delivery teams were recognized for their application management services that satisfied stakeholders at leading financial services institutions. By leveraging its collaboration with HP, Capgemini has helped one Wall Street firm define a structured, enterprise-wide testing methodology with oversight and governance, allowing the company to better utilize its investment in HP testing products. Capgemini has also helped a major global banking company execute a successful HP Quality Center upgrade for more than 2,000 projects and 10,000 clients and users.

“The combination of Capgemini’s implementation experience and HP’s application testing products and services has offered critical solutions to a number of the world’s largest financial institutions,” said Roy Stansbury, managing director for Capgemini financial services in North America. “Capgemini’s alliance with HP has augmented our clients’ abilities, keeping them armed with the most relevant and cutting-edge application management and testing strategies.”

Other examples of success include Capgemini’s work with a major mutual fund company to configure their HP testing products in order to provide a CIO-level dashboard view of their testing operations, and realize the expected ROI on their tool set. Also, a major custodian bank with worldwide operations was able to define a clear, actionable plan for deploying an enterprise-wide test strategy, using HP testing products and Capgemini’s financial services expertise and strategic approach.

“For well over a decade, we have partnered with Capgemini to respond to client needs, and deliver solutions successfully into the market, resulting in high client satisfaction,” said Scott Strubel, vice president, HP Americas Alliances and Channels. “As HP’s Application Implementation Partner of the Year, Capgemini has effectively demonstrated how they help clients transform their businesses through the innovative use of HP products and services.”
