Duo from Puducherry bags prize in TCS software testing contest

Beating around 1,25,000 students from across India, a duo from the Sri Manakula Vinayagar Engineering College, Puducherry, won the top prize at ‘TESTimony’, a software testing contest held by the Tata Consultancy Services Talent Acquisition Team in association with Assurance Services Unit. The contest is held across TCS accredited institutes in India.

Through three rounds, 300 teams were shortlisted, of which 10 were selected. At the grand finale at the TCS campus in Chennai on August 13, C. James Martin and R. Sugandhan, third year students from the Department of Information Technology, SMVEC were placed first. A press release from the college said that among the top 300 teams, 21 were from SMVEC. Mr. Martin and Mr. Sugandhan won an iMac desktop, and were also given job offers at TCS.

Recognising that software testing is not given due prominence in college education, TESTimony was designed to nurture and lay a strong foundation for students in it, and help them jumpstart their career in software testing, according to the organisers of the contest. Participants were tested on software testing tools Selenium, JMeter and Appium, said Mr. Sugandhan.

“In the final round, we had to work on these tools and show results within a stipulated time of 45 minutes. The competition was intense with the final 10 teams coming from 8 States, including teams from IITs,” he said. SMVEC had also won the first and third places in the contest last year, said Mr. Sugandhan.

Infosys co-founder: Successful startups leaving India

New Delhi: Successful startups are moving out of India due to unfriendly regulatory framework for such ventures, according to Infosys co-founder Kris Gopalakrishnan, who has been devoting a third of his time to the startup ecosystem since leaving the company and is working on spreading the startup culture beyond centres such as Bengaluru and Gurgaon.

“India’s rural people have strong execution skills. We want to give them tools that people in cities are familiar with, and take entrepreneurship beyond Gurgaon, Bengaluru and Mumbai,” Gopalakrishnan, chairman of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) entrepreneurship council told ET.

Gopalakrishnan is leading a CII initiative to set up a National Startup Centre that will handhold aspiring rural entrepreneurs through the entire process — from business idea generation and raising seed capital to post-incubation mentoring and guidance, be it for business strategy or future fundraising.

The startup centre is expected to launch operations in one or two states, whose chief ministers are said to be excited about the prospect, in the next couple of months, but will eventually scale up to build a hub-and-spoke model across the country with a central office coordinating statelevel efforts based on local needs and resources.

Gopalakrishnan said the centre will also engage with the states and the Centre to advocate policies for encouraging new enterprises and regulatory reforms needed to prevent an exodus of successful startups.

“Regulation needs to be streamlined due to which there are problems in getting seed capital, and later, valuation issues for startups. As they grow, they move their offices outside India. That’s very sad,” he said. There are issues with crowdfunding too making it difficult for startups to take off, he said.

Prime minister Narendra Modi said in his I-Day address last month that the government is looking at enabling startups and each bank branch would back at least one Dalit, tribal or woman entrepreneur. “We must be number one in startups… Startup India; Stand up India,” the PM had said.

While the government’s initiative would open doors for bankrolling startups, Gopalakrishnan said CII’s centre could generate business plans for easily replicable local businesses like last-mile logistics and food delivery, and train interested youth in operating the ventures and raising funds. The aim is to provide end-to-end support to entrepreneurs and create businesses that create high employment.

“We want to help youth move from being job seekers to job creators and create an ecosystem of such enterprises in rural areas. You could call it startup villages,” he said, adding that each startup may need around Rs 2-3 lakh initially. “Once there is a buy-in for the idea, money will come,” he said.

Gopalakrishnan said in tier-II, tier III cities and rural areas, the Centre can create business plans for various types of businesses, make them available to budding entrepreneurs, train them and work with the government and investors to organize seed funding.

Combining Accenture’s global testing and performance engineering capabilities with SOASTA’s advanced performance management and analytics tools will allow clients to increase end-to-end performance of their web sites and mobile applications while delivering exceptional customer experiences. This ability to monitor customer experience in real time can help predict and solve performance problems from virtually any location and on any device around the world.

“The speed of digital and mobile is a game-changer, leading businesses to embrace agile, high velocity application development,” said Paul Daugherty, chief technology officer, Accenture. “The accelerated pace of development is driving a greater need for high quality, reliable performance testing and validation in real-time production environments. Through agreements with pioneering companies like SOASTA, we are effectively strengthening our ability to offer on-demand performance engineering and testing as-a-service, along with advanced diagnostics, service virtualization and analytics as we help our clients transform rapidly into digital enterprises.“

As part of the alliance, Accenture will draw on its extensive experience with enterprise clients to advise SOASTA on their product roadmaps. Accenture will also become a reseller for SOASTA products and will provide solution development support.

“In the hyper-competitive online marketplace where performance is critical and milliseconds can equal millions, providing a better customer experience is the only way to win,” said Tom Lounibos, CEO and Co-Founder, SOASTA. “We’re thrilled to have established an investment and alliance agreement with Accenture, enabling us to provide even more business value to our joint clients by offering actionable intelligence that can help them quickly understand what’s working, what isn’t and what to do next.”

“Businesses are increasingly dependent on software and, therefore, on software performance,” said Kishore Durg, managing director and global testing lead for Accenture. “Our alliance with SOASTA provides a step-change improvement in our performance diagnostic and monitoring capabilities, which are critical for today’s digital business. SOASTA is one example of how Accenture is advancing performance engineering and testing by incorporating the latest analytics tools and intelligent automation into our service delivery.”

The customers will also have access to integrated analytics to help create customized offerings and address emerging market needs.
