Report Overview:

Wipro launched in FY18 its Quality as a Service (QaaS) offering relying on the capabilities of its QA practice and on Topcoder (acquired in 2016). Wipro's QaaS offering has a distinct value proposition from crowdtesting service offerings with a stronger focus on automation frameworks (with its mobile website and app testing framework), and access to mobile device labs.

QaaS has two main objectives:

  • Provide testing services on a pay-per-use basis, to as a service model providing tools and automation
  • Combine these testing services with the crowdsourcing capabilities brought by the 2016 acquisition of Topcoder (through Appirio).

Thanks to dual positioning, QaaS has a very specific offering that makes it different from the competition. Indeed, QaaS benefits from the investment made by Wipro in its testing service portfolio, e.g., in testing accelerators and IP.

Altogether, the value proposition and positioning of QaaS is to help clients accelerate testing cycles, relying on Wipro's testing and automation capabilities, and on using Topcoder's crowdtesting capabilities.
