Integrate Service Virtualization, API Testing By @Parasoft | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Enable Continuous Testing and Significantly Expand Test Coverage and Traceability

Integrate Service Virtualization, API Testing and Test Lab Management

We're excited to announce Parasoft's latest release: a consolidated platform uniting API testing, service virtualization, and test environment management.  The new release is designed to help organizations "shift left" the testing effort and accelerate the SDLC to meet the growing time-to-market pressure for software applications.

The ability to rapidly develop and continuously execute end-to-end tests-even in complex or frequently-evolving environments-is essential to accelerating application delivery while minimizing business risks. That's why Parasoft allows users to create a simulated test environment in less than a minute, then immediately start defining and executing tests against the appropriate test environment configurations.

Here's a quick overview of what's new....

You can get more details from write-ups at Programmable WebSD Times, and Kin Lane's API Report.

Customer Case Study: Leading US Telecom
To promote greater self-service in compressed time frames, one of the largest telecom companies in the United States is leveraging the integrated Parasoft platform to enhance collaboration, share reusable tests, initialize test data, and provision test environments-all from a centralized interface. The Parasoft solution has allowed the organization to significantly reduce the internal constraints of accessing test data, as well as accessing complete test environments. The result: they have been able to "shift left" quality efforts by reducing the cycle time for test data acquisition by 80% and improve environment access speeds to real-time (from an up-to-2-week wait time).

What's New Webinar
