We'd like to give you an in-depth example of how the emagine Testing Solutions service works. This is what you can expect when working with us. Let us answer both your quantitative and qualitative questions about our services, from our Clients’ challenges to our solutions.
Our Client's Challenge
A Tier 1 investment bank, was faced with having an extremely complex integration/ migration programme, involving 80+ applications, multiple vendors with a cross asset class management structure with a fixed industry delivery deadline. The programme further encompassed 2 separate legal entities with 20 core applications, and a further 60 non core applications that further highlighted the complexities of the operations. Our Client approached emagine’s Testing Solution practice, known for its ability for leadership, governance to build, and manage a heterogynous team; mixing multi-vendor staff and client staff into one goal focused unit: A team of 60 IT Testers and 50 to 100 Business Testers during testing cycles.
Our emagine Solution
- Our specialist Testing Solutions team, analysed and reviewed the programme's test infrastructure, partnering with the clients’ internal team, to introduce a simplified strategy, to reduce the overall risk and complexity of the programme. emagine introduced an iterative waterfall methodology across 9 streams in addition to an agile methodology with 2 week sprints across the remaining 2 providing immediate measurable results
- emagine provided a clear plan for our Client; the project had an existing 29 month history and suffered from overruns and overlapping deadlines. We managed the entire programme for our Client, taking complete ownership of the project, becoming the single point of contact for all testing delivery which allowed the client to manage costs effectively, deliver to the budget and agreed plan
- emagine engaged with additional selection, onboarding and training of the specialist consultants needed on the project; both within the client’s team and the client's external preferred supplier list creating a multi-vendor team fit for purpose and delivery where it was needed
- emagine provided a highly cost effective solution through leveraging on-to-offshore solutions significantly reducing cost whilst maintaining delivery and performance. We continuously provided and delivered a clear and concise bespoke approach customised for the banks programme of work and deliverables
"Ownership is a driving force of accountability." - Jared Narlock, Forbes Human Resources Council
