3 3 Customer Success Story: TIM Brasil July 2014 Raimondo Zizza, CIO of TIM Brasil, comments, The biggest challenge is to promote technological advancement through the adoption of innovative, collaborative and effective solutions to enable TIM s business growth. TIM s testing area has a strong focus on continuous improvement, and seeks to innovate processes and methods to free up resources to increase speed, coverage and reach of the tests. To detect failures in application development, the test team was using mock objects and method stubs prior to fully integrated testing. This process, known as clean track, helped to troubleshoot proactively, as it enables changes to be made during the development process. Terezinha Izabel Retore, Manager at TIM Brasil, comments, We could anticipate potential bugs in the previous process, but only after integrations were finalized. Solution More speed and greater productive capacity by detecting anomalies before they become critical To optimize the development lifecycle, enhance speed and reduce costs in development, the IT department decided to seek a solution that was robust and innovative. Leonida Auriemma, Executive Manager of TIM Brasil, comments, We needed greater speed and productive capacity to enable us to detect coding anomalies before they became critical. With the CA Technologies solution we were able to virtualize scenarios where other providers failed. Leonida Auriemma Executive Manager, TIM Brasil After a visit to Argentina, TIM Brasil s leaders decided to conduct a proof of concept exercise, which demonstrated that CA Service Virtualization was an extremely effective testing solution. The solution enables the virtualization of critical and urgent testing scenarios, for example, billing using Diameter protocol.
