In the twenty ﬁrst century, a dependable trading platform is at the very core of any stock exchange. A single error or failure can potentially bring operations to a halt, resulting in tremendous loss of revenue and reputation.
Here is how Mindtree helped a global top-ten stock exchange thoroughly test its new trading platform to deliver greater reliability and superior performance.
The customer, a leading Indian stock exchange with thousands of terminals, wanted to institute a rapid and sustainable testing solution. The objective was to achieve greater reliability, compliance and preparedness for future upgrades in its next-generation trading platform.
Its existing trading system had been designed to meet strict business requirements and process large volumes of transactions with excellent uptime and responsiveness. However, without a rigorous testing solution in place, it faced several challenges.
Mindtree worked with the customer to leverage proven testing methodologies alongside our proprietary asset MindTest™ to deliver the best quality in the least amount of time. The scope of testing included:
Together, we identiﬁed hidden defects at an earlier stage of development through code walkthroughs and developed tools and utilities for test data generation and veriﬁcation of results. We also created a test case repository for testing integrated and reengineered products, reducing testing time.
Mindtree supported application demonstrations and mock testing prior to actual production release. To reduce time and eﬀort, we leveraged automation functionality of the Mindtree HTAF (Hybrid Test Automation Framework). We also used our proprietary performance framework to benchmark clearing and Web applications.
‘With the going live of the new trading engine, we are geared up for the challenges of the coming years. This of course would not have been possible without the painstaking eﬀorts put in by the entire Mindtree team and patiently going through multiple rounds of testing. The commitment & dedication displayed by your team members in all phases of project is commendable’.
