The Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™) announced today that Tech Mahindra has joined its roster of supporters in order to accelerate the creation and adoption of software quality standards in the IT industry. Tech Mahindra is a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering services and solutions with headquarters in Mumbai.
This year, CISQ launched a working group to develop automatable standards for measuring the quality of embedded and real-time software. This new body of work is critically important to securing the Internet of Things (IoT) and related technologies and builds upon a set of standards developed by CISQ for measuring risk, security and technical debt in enterprise and business systems. In addition to its technical expertise, Tech Mahindra will help expand the presence of CISQ in India. The two organizations are teaming up to share best practices and methods for delivering quality software products that meet the highest industry standards.
“Tech Mahindra’s partnership with us is a testimony to its commitment to software quality. We are excited about incorporating its knowledge and experience into our software standards work, given the critical importance of software quality in technologies like IoT, medical devices, and mobile,” said Dr. Bill Curtis, Executive Director, CISQ.
“The new age customer, today, demands defect-free high-quality solutions, lightning fast delivery with no downtime, and the best-of-the-breed competency from their technology partners to address business challenges, deliver a seamless customer experience and create a distinct market position for themselves. It is imperative, therefore, that the quality of the product/ solutions, match world-class standards”, said Mr. Abhijit Lahiri, Chief of Transformation, Tech Mahindra. “TechM has ventured into building a #NewAgeDELIVERY Platform to bring these world-class solutions to the customer. The collaboration with CISQ complements this objective by using automated measures for evaluating structural quality of the software from the source code and establishing global quality standards.”
