Virtusa unveils QA automation module to local universities

5 September, 2021

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. – Virtusa Corporation, a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions, recently introduced a QA Automation module at Horizon Campus - a private university in Sri Lanka, with plans to rollout the module across other local universities to address the growing skill demand for test automation experts.

Quality Assurance (QA) is one of the most critical processes in a software development lifecycle, and QA Automation is increasingly gaining popularity among IT solutions providers to take over routine testing tasks and test cases at a speed and scale that is manually impossible. This in turn frees up project teams to manually handle more complex levels of problem solving, helping speed up workflows and delivery, increase accuracy and maximize efficiencies. “Gaining test automation skills has become a crucial requisite for a future-proof QA career,” said Head of HR for India and Sri Lanka at Virtusa, Rahul Sahay. “We identified technical and test automation skills, tools and knowledge required to elevate software testers to a highly marketable position as the demand for test automation continues to grow.” The module creation was carried out under Virtusa’s Campus Reach initiative – an industry-academia partnership designed to support the next generation of IT professionals to be workforce ready and contribute to the IT industry’s growth. The sessions were conducted by a team of Virtusa experts; Senior Director, Delivery Shenal Colonne, Manager, QA Praveen Akmeemanage, Lead Consultant, QA, Thilina Ranasinghe and Consultant, Technology, Aravinda Samarakoon.
