Today’s businesses not only run on software-their reputations depend on it. As a result, software teams need to deliver better quality software faster to keep their companies competitive.
To avoid having to choose between speed and quality, over 7,000 organisations around the world depend on Parasoft. Throughout the company’s 27-year history, Parasoft has continued to deliver breakout solutions that help businesses improve software delivery cycles and software quality.
“Software has evolved from a process driver to a business differentiator.
More than ever, software failure is synonymous with business failure,” said Parasoft CEO Dr. Elizabeth Kolawa. “Parasoft offers a true development testing and continuous testing platform that accelerates the SDLC and reduces business risks.”
Parasoft delivers a development testing platform, service virtualisation, and API/integration testing to enable continuous testing-reducing the time, effort, and cost of delivering secure, reliable, and compliant software.
Parasoft’s enterprise and embedded development solutions include static analysis, unit testing with requirements traceability, functional and load testing, development and test environment management, and more.
The majority of Fortune 500 companies rely on Parasoft to help them produce top-quality software consistently and efficiently.
Service Virtualization Enables Continuous Testing
Continuous testing requires anytime, anywhere access to a complete test environment. Parasoft Service Virtualization is an open, automated infrastructure that enables teams to provision simulated test environments and launch associated test scenarios via a readily-accessible API-enabling fully-automated testing.
“Continuous delivery requires continuous testing,” explained Kolawa. “Automating the SDLC requires the ability to test anytime in a complete manner. We allow teams to launch a myriad of different test environments, each of which runs an extensive set of test scenarios so all the necessary provisioning and test execution can be fully automated.”
Parasoft Service Virtualization can generate sophisticated, flexible virtual assets in a matter of seconds and ensure that all involved parties have the appropriate level of access and visibility.
This accelerates the SDLC and allows software teams to execute the unit, component, functional, integration, and performance tests necessary for effective continuous testing. By testing early and often, software teams can reduce risks and deliver higher quality functionality to the market faster and at a lower cost.
“Today’s organisations spend too much time waiting for a test environment and running manual tests against test environments,” said Kolawa. “You can achieve a greater degree of automation when the test environment is consistently available.”
In addition to facilitating automation, the solution can analyze and visualise the health of the environment to proactively identify test environment issues before they compromise the accuracy of test results. Moreover, it also helps teams share the resources relevant to their projects and domains.
Preventing Software Defects with the Parasoft Development Testing Platform
Parasoft’s Development Testing Platform (DTP) consistently applies software testing practices throughout the SDLC, enabling software quality efforts to evolve from automated to continuous. “In order for businesses to accelerate the release of applications, there must be an automated, accurate and dependable method to measure application quality as well as business risk,” said Kolawa.
Parasoft DTP seamlessly integrates with any internal, open source, or COTS tools that are critical to the organisation’s development environment. “The opportunity to integrate any SDLC tool into this platform gives organisations a single point of control for all activities associated with developing secure, reliable, and compliant code,” explained Kolawa.
“This not only enables a much better understanding of what is being developed and how it is being developed, it also assists organisations to substantially broaden the scope of development policies being monitored to ensure that software is being developed in line with management’s expectations. By automatically and continuously measuring whether quality expectations are being met, we can truly deliver a real-time, objective assessment of the business risks and enable a continuous release process.”
Earlier this year, Parasoft introduced the Parasoft Process Intelligence Engine (PIE), a Parasoft DTP component that aggregates and analyzes information throughout the SDLC to identify business risks early and automatically.
Leveraging PIE, organisations collect, correlate, and analyze data from disparate sources scattered throughout the SDLC, which allows them to discover risks and opportunities that humans would most likely overlook.
