Delivering IT projects to market on time and of an acceptable level of quality is even more paramount to the business in the current climate. Testing is all about Risk Mitigation, validating the level of quality achieved in development before a software application goes live. The cost of rework, loss of benefit to a business as well as the potential damage to an organisations brand can have significant commercial ramifications. This is even more so in todays dog eat dog environment. Therefore, ensuring that Testing is effective and efficient is a must for corporate survival.

Commenting on the partnership, Pradeep Chennavajhula, CEO of ETI said, Testing is a critical function, and a growing business area for many IT service providesr in India. Many of the Asian IT service providers, and Independent Testing service providers are in need of a structured framework for improving efficiency, and continuously improve their testing process. TMMi will play a crucial role in filling this gap. Just like CMMI for Software Engineering, TMMi will act as a key differentiator for winning large scale contracts with customers from UK and USA.
