Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Thursday said it has introduced a curated version of its cloud assurance platform services to allow clients to perform cloud migration-enabled enterprise modernization with Microsoft Azure.

Complex cloud modernization programmes, TCS said, carry risks ranging from infrastructure configuration and application integration issues to performance bottlenecks.

The latest version of the platform addresses these issues with holistic automated test coverage that includes automated infrastructure testing, data migration validation, functional and non-functional testing, a statement said.

The platform, comprising an automated Azure test suite, is known to deliver over 70% improvement in speed to market, the statement said, adding that it also enables 100% test coverage.

An assembly line approach entails a step-wise migration of each application to Azure, with assurance services performed at each step to ensure no rollback is required at a later stage, TCS added.

“The success of modernization programmes is heavily dependent on designing and implementing a robust quality architecture which can assure business objectives. Our offering equips customers with an on-demand automated assurance ecosystem to ensure quality, resilience, flexibility and agility,” Karamsetty Prabhakar, global head of TCS’ quality engineering and transformation unit (QET), said.

QET’s platform services, the statement said, incorporated a trademarked “Machine First” and factory-based approach to quality, resulting in leaner and faster assurance processes across both infrastructure and applications for Microsoft Azure.
