NEEDHAM, Mass. & NEW DELHI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™) announced today
that Tech Mahindra has joined its roster of supporters in order to
accelerate the creation and adoption of software quality standards in
the IT industry. Tech
Mahindra
is a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting
and business re-engineering services and solutions with headquarters in
Mumbai.


This year, CISQ launched a working group to develop automatable
standards for measuring the quality of embedded
and real-time software
. This new body of work is critically
important to securing the Internet of Things (IoT) and related
technologies and builds upon a set of standards developed by CISQ for
measuring risk, security and technical debt in enterprise and business
systems. In addition to its technical expertise, Tech Mahindra will
help expand the presence of CISQ in India
. The two organizations are
teaming up to share best practices and methods for delivering quality
software products that meet the highest industry standards.

“Tech Mahindra’s partnership with us is a testimony to its commitment
to software quality. We are excited about incorporating its knowledge
and experience into our software standards work, given the critical
importance of software quality in technologies like IoT, medical
devices, and mobile,”
said Dr. Bill Curtis, Executive Director,
CISQ
.

“The new age customer, today, demands defect-free high-quality
solutions, lightning fast delivery with no downtime, and the
best-of-the-breed competency from their technology partners to address
business challenges, deliver a seamless customer experience and create a
distinct market position for themselves. It is imperative, therefore,
that the quality of the product/ solutions, match world-class
standards”,
said Mr. Abhijit Lahiri, Chief of Transformation,
Tech Mahindra. “
TechM has ventured into building a
#NewAgeDELIVERY Platform to bring these world-class solutions to the
customer. The collaboration with CISQ complements this objective by
using automated measures for evaluating structural quality of the
software from the source code and establishing global quality standards.”

CISQ sponsors are committed to the development of high quality software
and are prominently recognized as thought leaders in software quality
measurement and analysis. CISQ sponsorship is available to companies of
all sizes as well as government, academic and non-profit organizations.
The collaboration reinforces Tech Mahindra’s efforts to comply with
optimum software quality standards from a global perspective. It is also
in line with the company’s efforts to continuously deliver the best in
class solutions and offerings to its customers.
