For the “Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide” report, Gartner evaluated 20 application testing service providers on their completeness of vision and ability to execute across a variety of criteria. Leaders are defined by Gartner as someone who is performing well today and is gaining traction and has a mind share in the market. They should also have a clear vision of market direction and should be actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. Leaders are generally expected to have a global client base; plus a track record of complex, global engagements that in turn support business transformation; and well-balanced business, process and industry consulting, implementation and service management capabilities that are supported by rigorous tools and methodologies, Gartner said.
As enterprises embrace digital, they need a modern approach to quality assurance (QA). Cognizant’s industry depth and technology expertise help deliver automated and intelligent QA for improved quality, and faster business and technology change.
“As digital transforms industries in unique ways, our clients need industry aligned digital assurance to succeed,” said Andreas Golze, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Growth Markets, Quality Engineering and Assurance at Cognizant. “An example of our leadership is our retail lab that delivers immersive digital assurance and accelerates the pace of innovation. To us, being named a Leader by Gartner underscores our ability to deliver testing services that help build powerful, digital-ready IT backbones that drive efficiency and effectiveness for our clients.”
The “Critical Capabilities for Application Testing Services, Worldwide” report is actually a companion to the “Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide” report. Cognizant scored highest for the Test Advisory Use Case, which helps clients in setting up and controlling requirements management (including static reviews), test management, test planning, test process, and the test tools — what to test and how to test, and for the Digital Business Assurance Use Case, which focused on verifying and validating digital business processes composed of cloud applications and digital technologies like RPA and IoT.
