Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Tuesday, December 11, 2012 -- (Business Wire India) 
Capgemini Group one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology
and outsourcing services, today announced that the company is reinforcing its
global expertise in mobile solutions with the launch of a Mobile Testing Center
of Excellence (CoE) in Mumbai, India. The Center of Excellence, led by global
mobile solutions and testing experts from Capgemini and Sogeti will be equipped
with the latest mobile testing specific tools and infrastructure both developed
in-house and by industry leading partners. The CoE will deliver services such as
Mobile Performance Testing, Mobile Functional Testing, Mobile Compatibility
Testing, Mobile Usability Testing, and Mobile Security Testing. 
The CoE will act as a hub for Mobile Testing services across the globe with
other Mobile Testing Centers of Excellence such as Sogeti High Tech in Grenoble,
France and will work closely with experts in other countries including the
United States, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands, ensuring a strong
Rightshore® approach. 
Shailendra Jha, Vice President, Rightshore Testing, Capgemini India said, “We
are confident that the establishment of our new Center of Excellence will give
us a strong position in adding value to our clients' business needs by providing
efficient delivery of mobile testing services. The center provides mobile test
experts with ready to go mobile test solutions and test environment for projects
we run for our clients.” 
Ajay Sharma, Enterprise Mobility Expert, Capgemini India said: “As mobile
adoption has become almost universal in developed markets and is rapidly
growing, we believe that mobile testing needs to be fully integrated so that
mobile enterprise strategy takes testing into account right from the start. The
focus now will be on testing quality as mobility will change the way IT
functions within many organisations”.  
Through the CoE, the company will utilize a wide variety of mobile testing tools
such as Perfecto Mobile, NeoLoad, and Robotium. To address the challenge of
platform fragmentation and usability testing, the Center of Excellence will be
permanently equipped with a core set of physical devices covering all major
device families and operating systems. This will be combined with a private
cloud solution that enables testing to be carried out from any of Capgemini
Group's physical locations.

in 2012. The company is currently engaged in projects for some of the largest
brands in the world and holds strategic alliances with technology leaders
including IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Google and SAP.
