Syntel, a global information technology services and Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) firm, today announced that it has successfully designed and implemented a strategic test automation framework for the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the primary regulator of retail and wholesale financial services in the UK.
Syntel was awarded the project by FCA to achieve increased efficiency, coverage and consistency in testing new and existing software applications. The test automation framework is a key component of FCA's vision to establish a central Testing Centre of Excellence to modernize and streamline its technology operations.
The custom-built test automation framework incorporates Syntel's market-leading test automation methodologies for a "plug and play" solution that is easily deployed across a variety of domains, tools and technology environments.
The framework is technology agnostic, compatible with leading test management platforms, portable, scalable and considerably increases test coverage. It is extremely user friendly, with an intuitive interface that enables quick and simple execution of automated testing projects by both technical and non-technical staff.
Syntel has recently been awarded a new testing services contract for a major new systems initiative and to on-board additional applications to the automation framework.
Syntel has been a technology partner to FCA and its predecessor, the FSA, since 2011, providing services in key operational areas including application development, application maintenance, testing and business process outsourcing (BPO).
