Collabera January 17, 2022

Acquisitions and expansions present opportunities as well as challenges for enterprises, especially with the voluminous data that comes along. Our client, a multinational Fortune 100 healthcare enterprise, had made a series of acquisitions over the past few years and had expanded its coverage across several states. This resulted in the challenge of merging disparate data and applications into a common platform.

The business aimed to accelerate their simplification and consolidation of their application landscape, to improve their ability to expand their member base, and improve time to market for new innovative healthcare products.

This created significant pressure on their quality function, requiring the need for faster testing cycles and a new quality playbook. The client chose Collabera as a trusted partner to establish best practices and create a new quality operating model.

The Solution

Collabera combined our IP – the Intelligent Test Automation (ITA) studio from Collabera’s AVA platform and our expertise – Collabera QE methodology to design a new Quality Engineering operating model. The methodology led with a digital-first approach, to completely shift the current testing model from Quality Assurance (QA) to Quality Engineering (QE) refocusing quality to be built into the engineering process instead of being tested out.
