Mumbai, India, May 21, 2014: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, was recognized by Informatica as an Innovation Award partner in the category of ‘Operational Efficiency’ during Informatica World 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. This award was bestowed upon TCS and Comcast for the deployment of TCS’ Test Data Management (TDM) solution, which helped to assure Comcast’s future and current test data requirement.
Siva Ganesan, VP and Global Head of Assurance Services, TCS, said, “We are honored to be acknowledged by Informatica for the innovative solution we deployed at Comcast. In today’s connected world, it is paramount that businesses have the right assurance methods in place to ensure compliance and mitigate risks. This space demands an innovative and industry leading approach to solve the growing challenges customers face due to lack of test data.”
The project, which started just about a year ago, was a joint collaboration between Comcast, TCS’ Assurance Services Unit and Informatica. The goal was to ensure timely availability of referentially correct test data across the various applications in Comcast’s QA environment. TCS was able to achieve this objective through the use of its Test Data Management (TDM) solution built on Informatica’s Information Lifecycle Management TDM platform that ensures data across an organization is readily accessible so that it can be analyzed and tested across sub-environments. The benefits of effectively implementing TCS’ TDM solution include reduced costs, assurance of data quality, faster delivery and strict adherence to regulatory requirements.
“TCS and Informatica partnered to deploy an innovative solution to address our test data challenges and requirements,” said Adrian O’Leary, Senior Vice President, and Kannan Subramaniam, Vice President, Testing and Quality Management at Comcast. “We are pleased that historical constraints have disappeared, enabling us to serve our business in an agile and cost effective way, while improving the overall customer experience.”
“We are delighted to recognize the innovation demonstrated by Comcast and TCS,” said Amit Walia, General Manager and Senior Vice President at Informatica. “Their thought leadership in the testing and quality assurance market has proven to deliver the operational efficiencies necessary to stay agile.”
The Informatica Innovation Awards recognize organizations that have demonstrated leadership in using Informatica solutions to drive innovation and business success. Spread over 10 categories, winners are chosen from more than 5,000 Informatica customers and represent organizations that are transforming their businesses to unleash the full potential of their data.
TCS’ Assurance Services work shoulder-to-shoulder with organizations across the globe to meet their testing requirements. By leveraging frameworks, tools and methodologies, TCS enables enterprises to reduce time and efforts in testing, making entire software development lifecycles more efficient.
