Achieve the optimal IT estate, create opportunities for business growth, and minimize costs.

Application Portfolio Strategy
How much you spend on IT is less important than what you spend it on. AAT helps you make those crucial decisions.

We can help you meet the dual challenge of reducing IT costs and using applications to add value to your business. AAT works with you to optimize your application portfolio by identifying cost reduction opportunities and investment priorities.
Instead of centering on implementation and technology, we help you define your IT goals in business language and align them with the prevailing business model. The most effective way for an IT organization to do this is to understand the business services of the organization.

Our service orientation and business service architecture focus helps provides the context and framework for transformative IT and organizational decisions. We thoroughly assess your application portfolio and develop a roadmap for achieving the IT mix that will best support your business goals.

Application Testing
Reduce your cost and incorporate outsourcing into your operations with minimal risk. Separation of development and testing functions is a key to ensuring high-quality software. AAT’s application testing offers an opportunity to reduce costs and incorporate outsourcing into your operations with minimal risk.

AAT offers embedded or independent testing, for a single application or your entire IT system. Our spectrum of testing services is based on 4 cornerstones: lifecycle model, organization, infrastructure and techniques. This highly automated solution combines your in-house capabilities with our specialized testing expertise.

For companies that could benefit from aggregating testing across multiple business units, or already have a set of testing guidelines and processes, AAT can help you create a global testing center of excellence. This allows all applications to follow the same streamlined process, enabling you to maintain high quality.

Rightshore®, our global delivery model of on-site, onshore, near shore and offshore resources, ensures you have access to the right application testing services in the right place at the right price.
