Sogeti, a leading provider of professional technology services, specializing in Application Management, Infrastructure Management, High-Tech Engineering and Testing, has launched a free app for iOS and Android: TMap Life Cycle.

Sogeti’s TMap is the world-leading methodology for structured risk-based software testing. An essential element of TMap is the lifecycle, covering the key steps in testing strategy and execution, in the end-to-end process of achieving robust business-critical applications.

Sogeti’s TMap Life Cycle app provides this mobile-based framework, guiding software testers through the software testing lifecycle, from planning and infrastructure to control and all stages of a critical path. Using TMap’s structured framework for end-to-end test process, this app helps testing professionals track the progress of their projects. It also enables the earlier identification of defects resulting in the consistent reduction of timelines by at least 30%, lowering overall costs.

The new app is available now in the Android Marketplace and the App Store. It is compatible with Android mobile devices as well as the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads. It provides users with free downloads to support the TMap process, including checklists and templates. The app also features videos explaining test design techniques, product risk analysis and methods to determine test strategy, as well as links to software testing resources such as eBooks and whitepapers.

“TMap is a sophisticated, proven and trusted software test management methodology, relied upon by tens of thousands of software testers across the globe for structured risk-based testing,” said Dan Hannigan, National Vice President of the Managed Testing Practice for Sogeti USA. “Releasing this free app is just another extension of our primary goal, which is making structured software testing and quality assurance methods easily available to professional testers.”

To download this free app, go to the Android Marketplace or App Store, and search for “TMap Life Cycle.”
