Financial institutions require complex systems for their end-to-end testing. From trading to asset management to credit cards, financial services firms use multiple applications across geographies and divisions to keep track of their customer accounts. These applications are often housed in complex and separate environments for all phases of testing. Development and testing teams are responsible for maintaining these environments as they update and enhance applications, but as project delivery has moved towards an Agile model, there’s been an increase in environment demands. This has led to challenges with environment sprawl, underutilisation and maintainability.
Capgemini’s Environment Rationalisation services help financial institutions look at all environments across the organisation to catalog, consolidate and optimise servers. This process helps testing teams reduce management complexity and maximise server usage to save costs.
