International consulting firm Cap Gemini is launching its testing services in New Zealand after what Australia and New Zealand CEO Paul Thorley describes as several months of market research.
“Our research identified that the current IT offerings in the testing space are fairly immature and yet to embrace test automation and more industrialised cost-efficient approaches,” he says.
“Our one-year business plan is targeting around 30 dedicated testing professionals servicing the New Zealand clients. By the end of year two, we are planning to have reached a milestone of 100 professionals.”
In 2002, Cap Gemini sold its then New Zealand business to local managers, who renamed the business CGNZ and maintained a relationship with Cap Gemini. However, Hewlett-Packard bought CGNZ in 2005.
Cap Gemini Testing Services will be run jointly by Darren Webber and Julian Ilott.
