Addressing European digital testing challenges
The partnership helps address the concerns highlighted by the recently released Digital Testing in Europe report by Pierre Audoin Consultants, which reported that 75% of European businesses agree that the expansion of their digital presence will be their number one IT priority over the next two years. However only 18% have implemented a digital testing strategy in 2015 and 35% of businesses in Europe are looking to implement a digital testing programme in the next 12 months.

TestPlant has been a working with Sogeti for several years, mainly focusing on digital transformation programs and helping support major European accounts like Banco Sabadell.
