With our expertise in the Utilities sector and Smart Metering, we successfully managed the integration testing of the complex, multi-vendor smart metering solution for Great Britain. Systems integration testing involved multiple vendors releasing software, hardware and firmware to be tested end to end on an ongoing basis.

Over 35,000 tests have been run per year since 2016 to test the solution in a highly regulated and highly secure context. This integration testing is supported by a CGI Triage function using industry knowledge to determine the business impact of defects found in testing and use Smart Metering technology expertise to guide the component vendors to resolve issues.
