Leading Kenyan Bank selects Validata for Temenos Core Banking Upgrade
London, UK, 8th February 2018 – Validata Group, the leader in the Enterprise Software Market for DevOps and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), announces today that it has been selected by one of the leading banks in Kenya to deliver quality assurance for their Temenos Core Banking upgrade project.
The bank is one of the largest banks in Kenya and today has operations in more than 20 African countries and across the globe.
Being a user of Temenos Core Banking solutions , the bank issued an RFP earlier this year looking for an automation test solution to increase the quality of their testing processes. At the core of its values lays the commitment to offer relevant and first class financial services, hence they wanted to avoid the quality of their testing to be hampered by time or cost constraints which leads to customer dissatisfaction and increased overall quality costs.
The RFP process included an exhaustive Proof of Concept, where Validata successfully met all of the bank’s requirements, winning the competition including HP and IBM, and was selected for its ability to add value throughout the Automated Lifecycle Process, from requirements management to testing, defect management, release automation and reporting.
Validata will allow the Bank to work faster and better by evaluating the optimum level of test automation and test coverage and incorporate innovative metrics that measure testing productivity and quality.
Vaios Vaitsis, CEO & Founder of Validata Group, added, “We are confident that our end-to-end DevTestOps solutions for Temenos will result in substantially reducing production defects compared to other solutions and will enable the Bank to reduce the testing times and deployment of software corrections by half and with fewer resources thus providing improved time to market of new functionality enhancing the value of the Temenos solution.”
