Parasoft, the leading provider of Service Virtualization, API Testing, and Development Testing technologies, and Skytap, the leading provider of self-service application development environments in the cloud, today announced a joint offering that delivers cloud-based Development Testing.
The joint solution featuring Parasoft Development Testing Platform (which includes Parasoft Static Analysis and Unit Testing) and Skytap Cloud provides on-demand access to multiple, concurrent test environments and continuous integration—allowing development and test teams to perform parallel unit testing and static analysis to automate and shorten their testing windows. Together, these technologies allow companies to yield greater throughput and increased velocity in order to become more agile and release software quicker.
“There is no doubt that all modern companies are software companies,” stated Wayne Ariola, Chief Strategy Officer for Parasoft Corporation. “This new reality has created an unprecedented demand for accelerating software delivery without compromising quality. Companies must continuously test at every stage of the SDLC. This means that Development Testing practices like static analysis and unit testing must be automated and ‘baked into’ the process of delivering software.”
“Most development and QA teams do not have sufficient access to test environments to test as often and broadly as they want to,” said Brian White, Vice President of Products at Skytap. “Parasoft and Skytap offer dev/test teams the ability to spin-up self-service test environments on-demand. The results are better test coverage, faster defect remediation and higher quality software.”
