EAST BRUNSWICK, New Jersey & DUBLIN, Ireland – May 22, 2012 – The Altran Group, a global innovation and technology services company, announced today at Management World Dublin 2012 that its Managed Testing Services (MTS) offering is the first to achieve a Test Maturity Model Integration(TMMi) Level 4 Certification in the UK. Based on the assessment conducted by TMMi-accredited software quality management firm, Experimentus, the certification process was completed in a record time of six months, underscoring the strength and experience of the Altran Group in conjunction with Total Testing @UK Lab.
The TMMi Foundation is dedicated to improving testing and quality processes for all companies. The Foundation was founded as a non-profit organization by a number of leading test and quality practitioners worldwide to promote a standard TMMi model and its uptake as an international industry standard for assessing and rating an organization’s testing process capabilities.
As high-quality testing has become a critical factor for improving the probabilities of a new product’s commercial success, it is imperative to test for seamless integration into the network and broad interoperability with both new and legacy technologies. Additionally, products must be compliant with an increasing number of complex certification requirements, which vary based on geographic location. Altran Group’s Managed Testing Services offering provides unparalleled expertise in testing end-to-end across the complete deployed telecommunications ecosystem. This encompasses the devices, radio access, backhaul, core network, OSS/BSS and application layer, and provides unique capabilities in accelerating new service launch with high quality. The TMMi Level 4 Certification has taken this proficiency and knowledge to the next level, ensuring that telecommunications clients will comply with all of the latest technology, industry, geographic, and governmental standards.
“Service providers require that telecom products, services, and applications deployed in their networks perform flawlessly while achieving the highest level of customer satisfaction,” said Harkirit Singh Chanana, Assistant Vice President, EMEA of Altran Group. “Being second in the world and first in the UK to be TMMi Level 4 Certified demonstrates the commitment of Altran Group’s MTS offering to manage and deliver quality results for a ‘zero defect operation’ for service providers. The TMMi distinction validates the strength of our testing capabilities and clearly demonstrates how our testing services have a competitive edge within the global testing market.”
Experimentus, accredited by the TMMi Foundation for both its assessment method and consultants, has obtained global recognition for the work it has conducted with TMMi, helping organizations achieve quality testing methodologies through the implementation of practices to enable defect prevention.
“Progressively more companies are using TMMi qualifications as part of their evaluation criteria when selecting a testing services provider, motivating more service providers to use TMMi to measure and improve their own testing and quality control capabilities,” said Julian Clarke, Director of Sales and Marketing at Experiments. “Being the first UK organization to achieve Level 4 TMMi Certification, Altran Group’s MTS practice has accomplished a major feat in securing their position in the testing market.”
“On behalf of the TMMi Foundation, my congratulation goes out to Altran’s MTS team. Achieving TMMi Level 4 maturity is a significant milestone and provides an industry benchmark for other service providers to achieve,” commented Dr. Richard Sykes, Chairman, TMMi Foundation.
