Tricentis for the energy industry

As the energy industry navigates a massive shift toward sustainability, technology is leading the charge. But driving unprecedented innovation can’t compromise the business’ ability to “keep the lights on.” How are leading energy companies and utilities transforming their businesses without disrupting critical processes with zero tolerance for error?

The Tricentis solution

We offer a new and fundamentally different way for energy companies and utilities to tackle software testing, dramatically accelerating DevOps, digital transformation, and cloud migration. Our approach is totally automated, fully codeless, and intelligently driven by AI. It addresses both agile development and complex enterprise apps, increasing software delivery speed, reducing costs, and improving quality. Now, testing takes just minutes or hours instead of days or weeks, while being far more cost-effective and highly accurate.

We’re #1. There’s a reason for that.

With over 1,800 customers around the world, Tricentis is the undisputed leader in enterprise test automation. We’re the only vendor in the category to achieve leader status in all the top analyst reports, including Gartner (5 years in a row), Forrester, and IDC.

Automate end-to-end testing across legacy and modern applications

The application landscape for energy companies and utilities includes modern and legacy technologies—ranging from packaged applications (e.g., SAP, ServiceNow, Salesforce, Snowflake, Oracle) to mainframes and custom applications, to APIs, microservices, and mobile/cloud-native apps. With all these different components evolving simultaneously, how do you ensure that applications consistently meet stakeholder, regulator, and user expectations?

Tricentis simplifies end-to-end test automation. With our native support for more than 160 applications and technologies, energy companies and utilities can achieve resilient, end-to-end test automation across any architecture or application stack. Tricentis can even test extremely new or old or specialized technologies as well as remote applications (Citrix, VMware, etc.) accessed in secure and regulated environments. A single end-to-end test can cross any number of technologies to exercise and validate all aspects of a realistic business process.

Centralize test management

Large established companies like today’s energy leaders commonly rely on a variety of tools to develop and test software. Individual teams love this autonomy. However, it impedes cross-team collaboration and reuse while making it difficult to gain a clear, accurate assessment of overall release readiness.

Tricentis centralizes test management, execution, and reporting to increase collaboration, efficiency, and accuracy. Results from commercial, open source, and custom/home-grown testing tools are analyzed and visualized in custom dashboards within your reporting platform of choice. Real-time integration with Jira and other tools provides full requirements traceability. Plan, manage, and track testing activities across all your interconnected projects, tools, technologies, and teams.

Count on SAP’s choice for faster, safer, lower cost releases

SAP is a mainstay in virtually any energy company’s or utility’s application landscape. However, the complexity of SAP software makes it difficult to know which changes pose risks to your end-to-end processes.

Tricentis and SAP have joined forces to help our customers innovate faster, deliver smoother releases, and achieve better business outcomes. Our solutions help customers at every step of their SAP journey, from ECC to S/4HANA and beyond.

Ensure accurate decision-making and regulatory reporting with end-to-end data integrity testing

Modern energy companies and utilities are being scrutinized and monitored like never before. At the same time, they’re also facing a data explosion like never before. This data is the product of continuous ingestions from disparate data sources, followed by countless integrations, transformations, and migrations. A slight discrepancy at any step typically remains unnoticed until it impacts the business. At that point, it’s extremely difficult to diagnose and fix.

Tricentis Data Integrity provides a powerful way to eliminate data integrity issues before they do any damage or catch the eye of regulators. Our end-to-end automation covers everything from the integrity of the data fed into your system, to the accuracy of integrations, transformations, and migrations, to the verification of report logic and presentation.

Realize enterprise performance testing at scale and speed

Energy companies and utilities are introducing some of the most innovative applications anywhere. These modern (IoT, microservices, cloud) applications are tightly intertwined with (and must coexist alongside) legacy technologies that may have been around for 30+ years. Yet as the application landscape becomes increasingly complex, application performance is more important than ever. Slow or buggy performance is simply not an option.

Tricentis NeoLoad accelerates performance testing to keep pace with the volume, velocity, and variety of today’s software releases. Natively architected to meet the reality of today’s enterprise testing environment — a mix of performance experts and non-experts alike, both centralized and autonomous teams, packaged enterprise applications, and microservices — NeoLoad lets you scale performance testing across the entire organization with a single, standardized platform.

Micro Focus ALM/UFT migration

Delivering flawless digital experiences requires fast, flexible software delivery, but the legacy testing tools commonly used by energy companies lag behind modern delivery practices. Trying to fit a previous generation of technologies into modern Agile and DevOps toolchains delays quality feedback—increasing risk exposure while driving up testing costs.

Energy companies are increasing testing speed and efficiency by modernizing their testing infrastructure with Tricentis. We enable unprecedented rates of test automation, plus seamless traceability via real-time integration into tools such as Jira. Start by tackling your most pressing challenge (test management, end-to-end test automation…), then easily expand as expectations shift and new challenges emerge.
