Bengaluru-based information technology (IT) services firm Mphasis on Tuesday announced a partnership with testing solutions provider Sauce Labs.

Under the partnership, Mphasis and San Francisco, California-based Sauce Labs will deliver continuous testing technology and best practices that enterprises need to build scalable, reliable, high-performance web, and mobile applications, according to a statement.

Continuous testing is a strategy of evaluating quality at every step of the continuous delivery process. Customers across all verticals, particularly those with user Interface (UI)-reliant applications, will benefit from the partnership, the companies said.

“Continuous testing continues to grow in strategic importance for organisations that focus on creating and delivering the best possible user experience for their customers," Jon Mills, vice president of global channels, Sauce Labs said.

Customers using the Sauce Labs continuous testing cloud in combination with services from Mphasis achieved up to a 75% reduction in testing time per release of a product. Users also reduced costs on an average of 30-40% as a result of no longer needing to maintain on-premise testing infrastructure or mobile device labs.

 “Automated testing with Sauce Labs fits seamlessly as part of the Mphasis vision of Zero QA, and we continue to leverage it throughout development cycles to ensure delivery of high-quality web and mobile applications," Dinesh Venugopal, president, Mphasis Direct and Digital said.

Besides, by testing across thousands of browser, OS (operating software) and device combinations, and leveraging test analytics, customers increased release velocity by an average of 40%. This translates from one release a month to weekly or even daily releases, it said. 

"Mphasis is evolving into an agile partner for our clients while using knowledge sharing sessions to scale opportunities to other enterprises. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Sauce Labs to help businesses drive their DevOps initiatives to the next level,” Venugopal added.

In January 2020, Mphasis announced another partnership with Israeli enterprise technology firm QEDIT to enable data compliance without infringing on privacy regulations by deploying the latter’s blockchain technology.
