Auriga named to Global Outsourcing 100
Auriga has been named to The 2008 Global Outsourcing 100. Selected by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP), The Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world's best outsourcing service providers across all industries. It is a rigorously judged, independent ranking that serves as a benchmark to gauge the strength of the industry as a whole and its service providers. Now in its third year, the list has become an essential reference guide for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the best companies in the industry.
“We are pleased and honored to have made The Global Outsourcing 100 list that defines the standard for excellence in outsourcing service delivery,” says Alexis Sukharev, Auriga CEO and founder. “This recognition underscores our commitment to delivering best-in-class software services and bringing value to our clients. Importantly, it also reflects the quality of our people, whose competencies, dedication and hard work have won us trust from our clients.”
Earlier this year, Auriga was also named, for the third straight year, to the Global Services 100 list of the top global providers of business and technology services. Only 44 companies have made both the Global Services 100 and the Global Outsourcing 100 lists this year, and Auriga is one of them.
Auriga launches new course on Mercury QuickTest Professional
The Auriga Training Center has begun conducting a new course in Mercury QuickTest Professional (QTP) skills. The need for such skills has been prompted by the growing regression testing effort that can be addressed through automation. Designed by Auriga QA experts, this 8-hour course provides a comprehensive understanding of using QuickTest Professional as an automated functional testing tool for Web applications. The course addresses topics such as recording and running tests, adding synchronization points and verification steps, modularizing and reusing tests. All topics are supported by extensive hands-on exercises that are based on real-life examples designed to provide trainees with the knowledge and skills necessary to automate testing using QuickTest Professional.
The first in-house training sessions were held at Auriga’s Moscow head office at the end of February and received a highly positive feedback from the course participants.
Additionally, Auriga QA experts are developing a training course that focuses on using Mercury LoadRunner to load test Web applications to ensure that they will perform and scale under the peak demands of the business. This course is set for May, 2008 at Auriga’s Moscow head office. Both courses will then be conducted at Auriga’s software development centers in the cities of Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod. The two new courses, that complement the existing suite of Auriga’s training courses, will help expand Auriga’s testing capabilities.
