Virtusa Receives Silver Stevie Award for Excellence in Technical Innovation

WESTBOROUGH, Mass., – (October 13, 2015) – Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global business consulting and IT outsourcing company that combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to transform the customer experience, has been honored with a 2015 Silver Stevie Award for technical innovation. The Stevie Awards, presented by the American Business Awards, recognized Virtusa in the Technical Innovation of the Year category for the Virtusa Test Automation Framework (VTAF).

“We’re honored to receive the Stevie award from the American Business Awards for technical innovation for our Virtusa Test Automation Framework,” said Chinthi Weerasinghe, vice president and joint-head of the Independent Software Quality (ISQ) practice at Virtusa. “Our framework enables our clients to quickly and easily test script development – an essential step in the process when bringing new solutions to market. This innovation is helping companies automate services, reduce costs, increase testing speed and maximize productivity and we’re thrilled to be recognized for our innovation.”

The Virtusa Test Automation Framework is a testing framework that can be used by non-technical QA engineers; it uses simple English to develop tool agnostic test scripts, increase test coverage and greatly accelerate test script development. The VTAF Auto 4GL tool automates the process of script generation and eliminates the technical and idiosyncratic element of developing test scripts.

Virtusa’s ISQ Practice brings unique differentiators and proven experience to its client engagements including rich product engineering heritage, innovative tools and accelerators, strong test execution capabilities, SLA and metric driven approach, coupled with a robust project governance methodology and a continuous focus on QA improvements.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations.

The Stevie Award joins Virtusa’s growing list of 2015 awards and recognitions. The company was recognized as a Leader on IAOP’s 2015 Global Outsourcing 100® service providers list, included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Services for Communications Service Providers and named a major contender in Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix for Independent Testing Services among others.
