QASymphony rolls out two new products to help QA teams scale test automation
QASymphony, the Atlanta-based company specialising in enterprise software testing, has announced the release of two new products to be delivered as part of the ninth release of the qTest platform – the company’s testing platform for agile development.
qTest Launch will provide centralised management for test automation, and comprises a single interface for scheduling and running automated tests, configuring test machines and reporting on scheduled tests. qTest Scenario Enterprise is the company’s new tool to enhance collaboration among teams practising behaviour-driven development (BDD). The tool is a Jira Software add-on which, when integrated with the qTest platform, enables a test-first approach by facilitating BDD test scenario creation, integrated directly into private source code repositories.
In a statement, the testing specialist explained that test automation has shown significant promise in reducing time to market, but the market has lacked an enterprise-grade solution for maintaining visibility and control across the wide variety of open source and proprietary automation tools that are available today. The company also highlights that testing teams practising BDD face further challenges in maintaining alignment with developers to ensure testing occurs as soon as new code is written.
“We have been collecting feedback from global enterprises over the last several years, and what they have told us is they need a partner that can support both their manual and automated testing efforts across diverse deployment approaches,” said Dave Keil, CEO of QASymphony.
“We have raised the bar with the release of qTest 9, which offers the first comprehensive solution for solving the QA bottleneck problem by enabling organisations to store, integrate and track everything that has been tested in one place. With this major release, we will drive customer adoption and partnership expansion at an accelerated pace,” he continued.
