Better Quality Assurance through in-depth understanding of business needs, systems and testing tools.
While cost continues to be important for QA & Testing Organizations, the main drivers for today’s market are still overall product quality and time to market. Adoption of Agile by both Independent Software Vendors and the Enterprise moves Testing Teams from the formal execution of predominantly manual test cases into a business centric risk-driven approach to testing with focus on requirements validation, automated regression testing, and continuous integration. These changes allow us to deliver products and applications on-time, optimize testing cycle, increase the number of new features covered, and drive implementation of the “all defects known” paradigm.
Modern infrastructure, connectivity and Internet speeds, a global move toward Mobile and Cloud, as well as user expectations for sub-second response times, combine to drive ever more stringent requirements for the deployment of Cross-Platform compatible, high-performance, high-availability, stable systems.
These factors are transforming Quality Departments, emphasizing more industry specialization, the adoption of modern processes, quality tools and methods, a shift from metrics driven formal models to more agile, outcome based models, and an increased interest in Testing as a Service (TaaS) offerings.
EPAM operates our Quality Assurance and Testing Division as an independent business unit. With 20 years of real-world testing experience and over 1,500 QA Engineers, Testing Software Engineers, and QA Managers, we provide standalone and integrated testing services to some of the world’s largest Independent Software Vendors and Enterprise Clients.
Our Testing Division earned a Distinguished Honoree medal in the category "IT Department of the Year" in The 2010 International Business Awards.
Our Quality Management System complies with global quality standards such as ISO 9001:2000 and QMMI/CMMI and we employ intelligent defect tracking tools to deliver a comprehensive range of testing services.
While working with some of the most advanced Software Companies in the world, we adopted the best industry standards around Functional Manual and Automated Testing, Performance Testing and Optimization, API testing Security, I18N/L10N, Configuration and Integration Testing, as well as accumulated vast experience across all leading edge tools in testing software. Russia and the Eastern European region, renowned for in-depth scientific and technical education, locate most of EPAM’s delivery operations and engineering talent pool.
An understanding of business, industry applications and requirements for specific tools and systems allows us to bring a more specialized focus to each project. We leverage this specialization to build dedicated engineering groups, which provide expert level services and tools/accelerators for specific vertical and horizontal service offerings in product and application testing. Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, and Russia harbor the largest part of our delivery operations with over 1,500 QA and Testing Engineers on board. Our engagements are all based on our proven standard testing methodology and leverage the EPAM Global Delivery Ecosystem.

Testing Services for enterprise
Today EPAM drives QA & Testing Transformation for a number of large enterprises. Our Test Transformation Framework is focused on shifting testing services upstream, integrating development and testing teams, promoting joint knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing, and shifting from pure metrics based reporting to SLA/Outcome-based "Testing as a Service" (TaaS) models.
Our full range of services includes:
EPAM has been providing testing services for Agile engagements since 2003. We run dozens of all-Scrum projects and incorporate Agile into our internal practices, our tools, and our delivery models. We believe that the adoption of Agile Testing will significantly transform enterprise testing practices and eventually replace many aspects of more traditional QA processes.
The EPAM Mobile Testing Group, together with our QA and Testing Competency Center has optimized EPAM's core testing methodology for mobile application testing. Today we support native, web-based, and hybrid devices, as well as standalone and client-server based mobile applications.
EPAM has experience testing a wide range of mobile operating platforms, including iOS, Android, Blackberry, WinMo, WP7, WebOS, Brew, J2ME, Samsung Bada, and Linux. We have adopted DeviceAnywhere and PerfectoMobile for testing on a wide range of mobile devices using global networks and carriers in different locations.
EPAM Mobile Labs also provide our developers and testers with the full set of mobile devices required for each project, including iPhones, iPads, Android-operated platforms, Blackberries, Windows Mobile, Nokia, and other devices.
Testing as a Service
"Testing as a Service" (TaaS) is currently being piloted in several EPAM engagements. In this scenario the testing services are requested and provisioned on a fully turn-key basis. We have had excellent success using this model in our Mobile projects where the requirements for cross-device testing are critical.
EPAM started the engagement with Parallels by providing a core team of Automation Experts from our Testing Competency Center. Our engineers conducted a full review of Parallels testing strategy, approach and frameworks, resulting in EPAM taking over their existing testing work and extending the existing frameworks it with new features.
The Company decided to deploy their products on a quarterly basis instead of less effective yearly builds. From the start, EPAM suggested moving to the Scrum methodology to leverage best-in-class testing practices, enabling Agility and thus ensuring flexibility and higher responsiveness to market needs. With a view of developing a long-lasting, strong partnership, EPAM established a dedicated Center of Excellence for the Company that embraced the entire testing effort.
