Multinational Bank

Capco conducts regression testing offshore for global bank

This leading multinational bank provides investment, commercial and private banking, asset and wealth management, and treasury and securities services. Headquartered in New York, the financial services institution is located in more than 100 countries.

Confronting challenges
The global bank was implementing Murex 3.1 in its credit line of business for its credit derivative products. The client needed help conducting regression testing for the new release to help ensure a smooth migration, reduce the cost of testing, improve the efficiency of the testing process, and reduce current dependency on in-house resources.

The bank engaged Capco to conduct offshore regression testing using HP’s QuickTest Professional (QTP) product within Capco’s SPARTA (Software Package Allowing Regression Test Automation) framework and execute the scripts for all binary releases from Murex. After assessing the Murex implementation, our dedicated team managed the testing services offshore, with a dedicated resource onshore at the client location as well.

In addition to helping the bank reduce the total cost of its regression testing and binary releases from Murex, we improved the efficiency of the testing and release process. We also improved the bank’s method of executing current inbound workflow tests using Murex’s application programming interfaces (APIs) to insert and read documents in the workflows and repositories.

Key benefits

  • Developed automated testing service that provides the bank with the capability to handle five new Murex releases annually
  • Designed a work pack repository of 1,500 test cases readily available to the bank
