Testing Services for Energy and Utilities (E&U) Industry
E&U are the lifeline of a society and vital to the global economy. An uninterrupted and well managed E&U domain nourishes the growth of the economy and addresses the emerging needs with the optimum use of technology. Smart Meters, self-service portals, and Omni-Channel transactions are being preferred as the providers are compelled to cater to increasing consumption from industrial as well as domestic customers while complying with emission reduction systems as part of environment-friendly policies.

When it comes to the field impact of E&U, the value chain is as important as the production. Being a strategic part of the infrastructure that supports the global economy, the E&U domain connects an enormous array of stakeholders ranging from governments, regulators, corporations, service providers to consumers. To operate a complex ecosystem, the business concerns are spread in intricate pockets across production, transport, distribution, consumption measurement, and billing.
The importance of Quality and the inherent business value has made Software Testing an essential component of the E&U project delivery. Ranging from early integration to ensuring mission critical operations during the transformation of core business applications along with infrastructure updates, testing has become vital for CIO’s to ensure their transformation journey is smooth and flawless.
