Greater automation, increased risk coverage and a lower number of test cases dramatically reduces testing time, effort and costs; all critical requirements for a fast-paced, innovative DevOps team. As a result, Tricentis is the right choice for development teams experiencing shorter time-to-market and lengthy test cycles and who are keen to adopt Agile, Continuous Development and DevOps methodologies.
Key benefits of the partnership include:
- Next generation testing: broad-based, cross-silo automation combined with model-based integration provides DevOps and release automation quickly and efficiently
- Developers, QA, Testing and Ops can leverage a single model to drive significant cost savings and reduce the time to bring new services to market
- Automated testing: a flowing continuous delivery chain from development, to QA, to staging and production
“As an industry thought leader, Tricentis is laser focused on listening to and ensuring we meet enterprise customer needs,” stated Sandeep Johri, CEO of Tricentis. “Our customers have been very clear about the need to move faster and thus adopt Agile and DevOps methodologies. As a result, we decided to partner with DevOps thought leader Automic in order to jointly provide complete enterprise solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
The joint solution provides customers with an industrial strength approach which is superior in usability as compared to legacy deployment and orchestration tools that have hard-to-control dependencies and require heavy scripting.
Todd DeLaughter, CEO of Automic, added: “The DevOps space is changing rapidly. Continuous delivery is now a neccesity and not a luxury as enterprises must provide the agility their customers demand. That said, the importance of automated testing as part of the DevOps toolchain remains essential. In enterprises, the testing complexity and challenges increase dramatically, so partnering with Tricentis ensures we offer the most robust and thorough testing to our customers.”
