Chris Pizarro, VP of Information Technology at First Data Corp., a leading provider of electronic payment solutions for financial institutions, discusses why First Data replaced the Compuware testing tools with CA Application Quality and Testing Tools. Following a number of acquisitions, First Data had duplicate testing tools, which created unnecessary complexity for both the systems staff and application developers. Standardizing on the CA Technologies tools has helped application developers be more productive and has simplified installation and maintenance for the systems staff. The conversion from Compuware has also reduced First Data Corp’s software costs.
First Data Corp took advantage of the CA Mainframe Software Rationalization Program (MSRP), which automated over 90% of the conversion. CA Technologies also provided “train the trainers” Education so the First Data Corp users could quickly be productive. The First Data Corp users are very happy with the CA Application Quality and Testing Tools, which have the same functionality as the Compuware set of tools they replaced.
