Barrenjoey, an Australian-based financial services firm, made its official debut on September 21, 2020, with the backing of its foundation investors, Magellan and Barclays. Offering a comprehensive suite of services, Barrenjoey assists clients with corporate and strategic advisory needs, financial planning, and navigating the equity and debt capital markets.

A standout strength of Barrenjoey lies in its ability to harness the collective expertise of its team, allowing for a locally managed and controlled business that is free from the constraints of outdated systems and processes.

To ensure seamless operations, Barrenjoey engaged Testpoint, a trusted testing partner, to provide enterprise testing consulting services & solutions with a specific focus on Cloud Integration Systems to deliver a robust test program for its high-profile enterprise implementation roadmap.

This collaborative approach has played a crucial role in establishing a dynamic and efficient business environment, solidifying Barrenjoey’s position as a frontrunner in the financial services industry.


1. Delivering a Well-Defined Test Strategy

Barrenjoey aimed to provide value across the organization, from C-Level executives to front-line staff and vendor deliverables. However, achieving this required a well-defined test strategy that aligned with the enterprise-wide goals. Testpoint collaborated closely with Barrenjoey’s stakeholders to understand their requirements and objectives. Through this collaborative process, Testpoint developed a comprehensive test strategy that catered to the specific needs of each stakeholder group. This ensured that the test program delivered the desired value and met the expectations of all parties involved.

2. Implementing a Scalable Test Model

As Barrenjoey’s enterprise implementation roadmap progressed, the need for a scalable test model became apparent. The initial burst of testing required significant resources and efforts, but as the implementation matured, the testing needs would naturally decrease. Testpoint addressed this challenge by designing a scalable test model that provided flexibility to scale back resources after the initial phase. This approach allowed Barrenjoey to optimize its testing efforts and provided options for managed test services or on-demand test support, depending on the project’s requirements.

3. Ensuring Skilled Resources for Augmentation

During the implementation journey, Barrenjoey anticipated the need for additional resources to augment the roadmap. This requirement posed a challenge in terms of finding skilled professionals who could seamlessly integrate into the project. Testpoint, with its vast network of experienced testing professionals, quickly identified the necessary resources and provided them to Barrenjoey as and when required. This ensured that the implementation roadmap remained on track and that any gaps in expertise were promptly addressed.
