Insourcing / Outsourcing

Beyond providing individual contingent resources to augment your internal teams, Stratus has the ability to build entire teams to support your organization’s Guidewire deployment, maintenance or upgrade efforts.  These dedicated teams can be located at your location or at our onshore (Chicago / New Jersey) or offshore (Hyderabad) delivery centers.  We support both standalone as well as integrated development efforts connecting to your development infrastructure through secure remote access.

 

Management of the team’s efforts can be integrated into your existing internal IT management structure or can be managed by Stratus’ experienced development and delivery management teams. Our delivery model for either approach can be either fixed bid, time & material, or service fee based dependent upon your preference.  In all cases, our efforts are quality focused and driven by appropriately defined deliverables and service guarantees.

Quality Assurance Testing

No matter the power and flexibility of an application toolset; poorly written code, a disconnect between design and execution, or poorly performing delivery systems will not result in the expected value and benefit to your organization.  Stratus provides a complete range of testing and quality assurance services to ensure your project is delivered on time, on spec and exceeding customer expectations.

 

This includes:

Functional Testing
Performance Testing
User Acceptance Testing
Integration Testing
Automated Testing

 

Our testing services can be executed as an independent verification process or as an expansion of your internal quality assurance processes and methodologies.  In addition, we can offer these services onsite, onshore or offshore.  Our offshore testing services can also be deployed in a “follow the sun” delivery model complementing onshore development timings and reducing sprint timelines.
