Bangalore, India - January 30, 2012:
Wipro Technologies, the Global Information Technology, Consulting and Outsourcing business of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT) today announced that it has been granted a patent by USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) for its StORM(Statistics Operations Research Matrix) methodology. Wipro 'StORM' is a system and method for software test suite optimization, achieved by generating an Orthogonal Array(OA) for software testing using the mathematical principles for OA.
This method results in reducing the number of test cases many fold downwards and at the same time increases the effectiveness of the testing process, thus reducing the testing cycle and effort required. Wipro has reduced test cases by 75% from the original suite for a large telecom equipment vendor. The resulting efficiency has implied increased coverage and reduced effort and cycle time.
IDC forecasts a five year CAGR of 19% for discrete global testing services, reaching an estimated $17.7 billion by 2013 and Wipro being one of the largest Independent Testing Services providers, aims for a bigger share of this pie.
According to Rona Shuchat, Program Director for Application Outsourcing Services, IDC, "With the breadth and depth of its solution focus, innovation for go-to-market, and globally distributed practice for key emerging areas, Wipro ranks in the leadership quadrant in both the enterprise application testing views and in the product engineering testing services assessment."*
Arun Kumar Singh, Vice President,- Wipro Testing Services elaborates, "We are happy that Wipro's StORM methodology has received this recognition. It was also awarded the Software Testing Best Practice award by IIST (International Institute of Software Testing), USA, and clearly showcases Wipro's strategy of imbibing innovation in our processes, delivery and pricing models to enable our customers do business better."
