BANGALORE, INDIA: HP on Monday announced that Symphony Services has selected its software solutions to help customers of the R&D services company to reduce software development times by up to 30 per cent.

To sustain competitive advantage, organisations in India are looking to speed innovation while driving growth and profitability. High quality business applications that embrace areas like cloud and mobility are key to achieving this.


Symphony provides testing services to independent software vendors (ISVs) seeking the latest technology to deliver high quality applications to businesses and government agencies. However, the manual testing processes used by some of Symphony Services’ customers resulted in long development times and failed to ensure consistent quality for new software applications.

To address this, Symphony chose HP’s IT Performance Suite to automate its application testing services. With enhanced testing and quality control components, the suite will help Symphony improve the efficiency of its testing processes as well as the effectiveness of identifying application defects. These improvements are expected to increase quality assurance by up to 20 percent.

“Businesses are required to optimize product development cycles to stay ahead of competition and continue to deliver new products with required agility while providing a compelling end-user experience,” said, Sunil Gupta, SVP and head of Service Lines, Symphony. “With HP IT Performance Suite software, we aim to identify and reduce performance bottlenecks, improve resource utilization as well as accelerate the return on investment on new product releases for our clients.”

HP IT Performance Suite software suite includes the HP LoadRunner, HP QuickTest Professional (QTP) and HP Quality Center (QC) solutions. This software suite offers immediate access to testing templates, process models and industry benchmarking reports.
