SQS and Enov8 announce strategic partnership
SQS, the software quality assurance specialist headquartered in Cologne, has announced a strategic partnership with Enov8, an Australian organisation which provides a platform encompassing IT and test environments management, holistic test data management and release management.
With the growing appetite for adopting an Agile and DevOps approach, organisations need to be able to optimise their IT landscape and to “visualise” and manage a continuous quality governance process, SQS noted in a statement.
The partnership will leverage Enov8’s technology and SQS’s domain knowledge and global delivery capabilities to enable organisations to simplify IT operations.
Rob McConnell, Global Head of SQS Digital Labs, said: “SQS invested a lot of time looking for a partner that would provide the capability to optimise our clients’ end-to-end test environment and release processes. Enov8 is the unquestionable leader in this space and SQS will be using their technology to respond to customers’ test environment & release management expectations”. He added that today, most organisations are managing their complex non-production environments using spreadsheets, emails and other tools, leading to manual, inconsistent and error prone operations that cause unwanted disruption, costs and project delays.
Niall Crawford, Co-Founder and CTO of Enov8, commented: "I am very happy that SQS has selected Enov8 as a strategic partner for delivering IT & Test Environment, Data and Release Management solutions. It is great to have a partner, like SQS, that intrinsically understands the problems that surround IT & Test operations, recognises customer immediate requirements; and understands how a combination of SQS services and Enov8 technologies can minimise the operational challenges a client faces. I am expecting a productive partnership between Enov8 and SQS and anticipate valuable success stories from the customers we engage with.”
