TCS Integrated Assessment Framework for Assurance (TIARA)


An automated system to assess the maturity of test processes based on industry standards ensures improved efficiency, cost reduction and a quicker Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). This enables quicker production of defect-free software solutions, helping add more value to your business.

The TCS Integrated Assessment Framework for Assurance (TIARA) is an automated solution that highlights the defects or gaps early in the test process, minimizing rework efforts and quality issues. It helps in the identification of pain areas in the testing process and root-cause analysis and recommends a roadmap detailing the actions required with a timeline for execution.


  • Tangible business results in the first year - 10% improvement in productivity, 5% reduction in reworks and 3% reduction in defects
  • Improved visibility of the strengths and gaps in the test process

The TCS Advantage:

  • A tool-driven approach: Automation of the process with the development of a web-enabled tool with multiple features - user, schedule, project, KPA, question bank, assessment period, assessment schedule, assessment progress and model management
  • Complete focus: TIARA focuses on functional and non-functional testing, test data management and the need for security, usability and accessibility testing
  • Compliance: TIARA provides compliance reports with respect to industry models – TPI Next and TMMi from a single assessment
  • Extensive reporting: TIARA provides reports on maturity levels and assurance compliance of the corresponding process areas and a graphical representation of your test maturity
