Virtusa Launches BPM Test Drive for Needs Assessment, Business Case & ROI

Intensive Education and Evaluation Program Creates Framework for BPM Success


Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/02/2010 -- Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ: VRTU), a global IT services company that offers a broad spectrum of business consulting and outsourcing services, today introduced the Virtusa BPM Test Drive for Needs Assessment, Business Case & ROI from Gartner’s Business Process Management (BPM) Summit 2010. This intensive three-week program, focused on BPM education, evaluation of challenges, business case creation, prototype development and technology evaluation and recommendation, establishes a framework for a client’s successful BPM engagement.

For many enterprises, BPM has dramatically improved operational efficiency, increased agility and accelerated time-to-market. Despite these proven benefits, many BPM projects fail to deliver on their potential due to a failure to align the organization, clearly articulate goals and address non-technology challenges. Virtusa’s BPM Test Drive addresses this issue by anticipating and averting the common pitfalls that prevent organizations from reaping the full value of BPM.

“We have successfully implemented BPM programs for customers in many industries, and we’ve learned that success is determined during the early stages,” said Vinaykumar Mummigatti, vice president and BPM practice leader at Virtusa. “Since we know that BPM is about business transformation, not technology, our BPM Test Drive immediately aligns business and IT stakeholders around a shared vision of BPM, participants’ roles, project goals and success criteria. Our BPM Test Drive ensures that our customers are always among the 50 percent of BPM programs that succeed.”

Built on Virtusa’s proven Understand-Evaluate-Demonstrate framework, the BPM Test Drive eliminates BPM risk by delivering the following:

• Education: Comprehensive BPM training guides the customer through the identification of the essential aspects of BPM project strategy, including training on BPM fundamentals for business and technical team members, goals, business questions, benefits and tasks required to complete a successful implementation.

• Needs Assessment and Business Case: Thorough analysis of key business challenges, priorities and performance metrics inform the development of a detailed business case with cost-benefit analysis and implementation options.

• Prototype: Based on an approved business case, Virtusa completes the Test Drive with the delivery of a proof of concept and customized prototype.

The BPM Test Drive for Needs Assessment, Business Case & ROI is part of a comprehensive suite of BPM offerings that improve customers’ core business processes. Virtusa’s services encompass business and IT consulting, product development, management and quality assurance. Other Virtusa BPM services include the Virtusa Business Process Competency Center (BPCC) and Virtusa BPM Acceleration Methodology (VBAM), both launched last year.

“This release continues our commitment to helping our clients leverage BPM technologies to achieve positive business results,” said Frank Palermo, Senior Vice President, Technical Solutions Group. “By focusing on crucial business and non-technology issues we provide complete end to end services that deliver true value to our customers. Virtusa will continue to offer solutions to help customers extract maximum benefit from BPM.”
