Improved testing processes help insurers achieve higher rates of implementation success.
Dallas, TX – June 13, 2016 –– ITS, an insurance consulting and services firm specializing in the design, implementation, and utilization of technology across all segments and lines of business, is pleased to announce the launch of ITS BOOST for Testing.
“ITS BOOST is a collection of insurance managed service programs for Testing, Data Migration, Project Management and Change Management,” said Chris Belle, president of ITS. “ITS BOOST for Testing provides a number of benefits, including speed-to-market, standardization of processes, and optimization of resources, which, in turn, minimize rework and configuration cycle times.”
Considering the high cost of core system implementation, accurate testing during implementation is a must. ITS BOOST for Testing helps insurers plan, manage, and execute effective processes for user acceptance and internal IT quality assurance (QA) testing, including the development of manual and automated functional tests. ITS BOOST for Testing provides a set of cloud-based tools, including the ITS Test Management Platform and ITS Test Automation Platform (ITAP), specifically designed for the insurance industry.
System implementations utilizing an agile approach allow testing to start earlier and continue throughout the development life cycle. However, testing in an agile environment has its unique challenges. ITS BOOST for Testing makes it easier to deliver the right level of quality in response to changing business requirements, while accommodating limited resources and aggressive project schedules. ITS BOOST for Testing also provides a starter test case library based on customer-specific requirements across all the major functional areas. This library of test cases combined with ITS tools and role-based training provides a framework that allows insurers to effectively run internal testing processes.
