Testimonials and Case Studies

We searched the market and SOAtest was the only tool that fit our requirements. The flexibility of the solution was unique. So was the support we received from Parasoft in the background – some of the best I ever saw.

— Stefan Potzel, EAI Manager, Siemens

Developers are only human. They make mistakes. That's normal. We use Parasoft to ensure the results we get are what we expected. It allows us to produce test suites that we can reuse in other projects without writing again and again. We gain significant productivity benefits from being able to reuse the test assets.

— Stefan Potzel, EAI Manager, Siemens

The [Lufthansa Cargo AG] SDB project team reduced regression testing efforts by at least 20% by using Parasoft versus the efforts that would have been put forth if we had performed regression testing manually.

— Michael Herrman, Project Manager Lufthansa Cargo

From a project perspective, this was a big success for us. It helped me achieve my targets. The biggest advantage for me is the efficiency of the test process now in operation. I was able to hand over a complete set of test cases to the operations organization where we used our 'ten minutes regression test'. Ten minute regression testing would not be possible without this solution.

— Michael Herrman, Project Manager Lufthansa Cargo

"The [Lufthansa Cargo AG] SDB project is now completed and Parasoft's solution was a critical success factor for the overall project. The solution enabled me to stick to my original plan and budget. Now, after seeing the excellent results of the project, I strongly believe that it would not have been possible to accomplish this level of high quality without Parasoft."

— Michael Herrman, Project Manager Lufthansa Cargo

We found SOAtest and we ran with it...We quickly saw that the product had a lot of powerful features that would help us automate our testing activities and processes. Parasoft SOAtest was able to support all the latest standards; we were able to test all areas of our APIs.

— Natalie Doan,QA Engineer, Medicalert

We have to ensure members have an effective experience and that data is there when you need it in an emergency. The data must be valid and correct. It must be rapidly and correctly updated. Parasoft helps us ensure these objectives are consistently met.

— Natalie Doan,QA Engineer, Medicalert

Parasoft SOAtest was more intuitive and user-friendly than the other products we looked at...It can be used straight out of the box—no adjustments or customizations necessary.

— Lilach Shalev, QA Lead, FundTech

Parasoft provides the ability to record our test scripts, create a regression set in one click for each functionality tested, and save the tests in a common repository. Most importantly, once our QA team confirms and saves the test results, the differences in each regression execution are compared automatically with no manual intervention necessary

— Lilach Shalev, QA Lead, FundTech

"The solution is quite intuitive and allowed us to develop the scenario-based tests that we wanted for our regression testing."

— Gareth Galvin, QA Manager atex

Parasoft SOAtest provided all the functionality that we needed in the scope of the project. And, even though the ability to script was provided, we didn't have to use it because the functionality we needed was available through the GUI of the tool. Thus, all of the tests for this project were created without coding.

— Victor Tsemko, Technical Analyst, Aeroplan

"Without Parasoft SOAtest, the quality of testing for our project would suffer because there's no way we would be able to do all those tests in the time frame that we had. We would have had to make some compromises."

— Victor Tsemko, Technical Analyst, Aeroplan

Parasoft SOAtest is overrun with useful support tools. Parasoft SOAtest handles testing coming and going, and it has an overall feel of maturity missing from several of the other tools.

— Rick Grehan, InfoWorld

I found Parasoft's SOAtest to be a well-designed tool that took a lot of the pain and work out of testing and validating a SOA. The tool isn't perfect, but it is easily one of the best SOA testing tools that I've ever worked with.

— Kyle Gabheart, SOA World Magazine

From testing mainframe subsystems like DB2 databases to parameterization of test & validation tools for complex data structures, from second-generation extension framework to custom message formats, SOAtest covers the bases.

— Greg Bates, Programmable Web

We drove SOAtest through a series of exercises using its straightforward GUI. We found it easy to learn...The product's hooks for integration into automated test environments ...[are] what will make SOAtest a real working part of the SOA infrastructure, not just another dead chicken to wave over the system when management wants to see people doing something.
