About Assurance Services Unit

TCS’ Assurance Services Unit (ASU) is the enterprise testing arm of TCS primed to render
independent validation and verification (IV&V) services for global customers. Built atop a
foundational layer of considerable pedigree and harnessing the power of a best-in-class
Integrated Quality Management System (iQMS), conformant to industry models such as
CMMi, ISO9000 and IEEE, ASU’s offerings instantiate the richness of the frameworks we have
organically evolved over 40 years. With emphasis on the twin pillars of process and
product quality, ASU seeks to straddle the full spectrum of assurance ranging from prevention
to detection.

Intelligent Testing System
Test Smart, Test Intelligent

With over 15,500+ test professionals spanning a gamut of functional and non-functional
competencies and the experience of having setup over 45+ dedicated test centres, ASU brings
to bear a combination of expertise and experience that will benefit you. As an independent
business unit with executive accountability to the senior management of TCS, ASU offers an
unmatched array of independent test capabilities deployable in flexible and agile rendition
models suiting the business, IT and procurement imperatives of an enterprise such as yours.
Ongoing investments in innovation (in collaboration with the office of the CTO, TCS) and
research (instrumented through TCS’s independent research facilities, Labs and strong
academic interfaces) serve to position us at the cutting edge of achieving measurable and
continually improving end-business quality objectives.

the testing process followed during software development is crucial. To address these challenges. Our Solution Benefits Our Intelligent Testing System helps you perform software testing concurrently with software development. to automate the entire software testing lifecycle. it is difficult to provide test coverage within the limited time available. TCS’ Intelligent Testing System is an integrated software testing system that automates test scenario generation for user interface (UI) and middleware services. Non-availability of the test environment and other system components further prolongs the testing process. shorter testing cycles. Requirements as BPM Flows + Design Artifacts + Test Application Test Scenario Generator Service Virtualization Provisioning of QA Env. front end. enhanced quality and reduced costs. with test data provisioning n Automatic business virtual services creation n UI testing/front-end testing n Test environment management services for provisioning and monitoring the QA environment n One-stop dashboard for QA environment n Automation of regression suites n Anywhere testing Leveraging the solution. reduce software maintenance. The solution automates the entire process of business service model creation. and automates the data privacy norms for test data provisioning. thereby. reducing the time required for building the test environment. reducing dependency on the availability of various components for testing. minimizes the efforts you expend in managing multiple environments.an integrated end-to-end testing solution that brings automation early in the software testing lifecycle (STLC) and helps business outpace competition through improvement in time to market. This implies that businesses need to develop and market applications quicker while keeping costs low as well as ensuring that the quality and end-user experience remain superior and are in no way compromised. improving quality and reducing the cost of quality. that is. The solution also integrates the QA cycle from test design to test execution. and back-end testing. Our solution reduces your dependency on multiple applications. to avoid legal risks and potential damages caused by unauthorized data access. organizations need to outpace their competition and enter the market faster. test data needs to conform to legal and regulatory requirements. This patent pending solution eases and automates the process of application testing by auto-generating test cases. The solution also helps you build the test regression suite. Nonavailability of dependent applications during testing can result in long waiting periods. Organizations are often constrained by the availability of test data and create test case scenarios manually. The key features of the Intelligent Testing System are: n Automation of test scenario creation and test case generation n Test data management. This solution ensures effective testing of newly developed applications as well as comprehensive testing of applications after enhancement and maintenance. and a higher likelihood of detecting the bugs inserted elsewhere in the application that lead to maintenance shutdowns. Our solution’s flexible deployment model allows you to perform testing anywhere. Overview The manual process of writing test scenarios based on the requirements and building test cases is time consuming. and providing test data and environment management services. organizations need to transform their testing processes with the objective of accelerating delivery. incomplete testing and testing with less relevant data often lead to undetected software bugs in the application. Such shortcomings can result in higher software maintenance costs and sometimes unwarranted maintenance shutdowns. Since software quality is vital. test data generation. It supports automation of system and integration testing in quality assurance (QA) as well as unit and component testing in the development phase of the software testing lifecycle (STLC). business service virtualization and test environment management. This results in faster development. The solution enables you to manage end-to-end testing ranging from the UI layer to the database layer. This can cause delays in the release of the product causing opportunity loss and therefore business loss to the organization. reduced number of postproduction bugs. helps create test cases along with test data. This approach not only delays the testing process. minimize the cost of quality and achieve the following benefits: n Up to 30% improvement in time-to-market n Up to 5% reduction in the number of bugs n Up to 10% reduction in cost The TCS Advantage TCS’ Intelligent Testing System is an innovative solution that leverages our in-house tools as well as those provided by our alliance partners. and better collaboration between development and operations teams for continuous and smooth delivery.In today’s evolving business environment. middle layer.
