Retail & e-Commerce

Engage Customers With a Compelling User Experience

Provide a Reliable & Secure Online Shopping Experience

In recent years, retailers have changed the way they do business to expand beyond physical store operations with online shopping. This requires both vertical and horizontal integration that adds complexity to retail applications. You need confidence that your transaction management systems (such as Visa and MasterCard) and customer loyalty programs all perform flawlessly while protecting your users’ sensitive information. You must have a consistent and thorough application testing process in place to quickly deliver a successful project. Parasoft can help you implement and execute an automated testing strategy that enables you to confidently deploy your retail and e-commerce software applications.

Address Today's Modern Software Development Challenges

Working With Sensitive Data

Compliance initiatives such as PCI DSS and GDPR prevent developers and testers from using production data when testing, but realistic data is key to testing. Parasoft removes the reliance on real world data by creating virtual services that can operate even if the request data isn’t exactly right. Virtual services can be data driven with expressions that analyze the requests coming to them and respond appropriately, reducing the data required to interact with the backend system.

Ensure Security & Quality

Parasoft’s secure-by-design approach to functional testing enables security testing early and often to test thoroughly for any potential issues and increase the velocity of software delivery. Complying to PCI DSS requirement 6, static application security testing (SAST) is the first line of defense as developers scan their code during implementation and systematically eliminate identified security vulnerabilities. API penetration testing is the next critical step to uncover security holes in applications. By implementing security and penetration testing as part of the functional testing strategy, retail organizations can ensure their applications comply with PCI DSS guidelines and minimize data-related risks.

Minimize the Impact of Change

Complex retail and e-commerce applications incorporate extensive amounts of code and connected systems. When APIs and UIs require changes, the code must be updated and tested to verify that both new and existing functionality works as expected. Instead of executing thousands of tests each time changes occur, optimize your JUnit, API, and Selenium test suites to run only the tests required to validate the code changes between builds with quicker feedback from the CI/CD pipeline. Then analyze the existing test suites to determine which tests need to be updated to verify the changes. Minimize costs associated with test refactoring by identifying when APIs change, and then use AI to map differences in the versions.

Parasoft’s Testing Solutions for e-Commerce & Retail

Benefit From the Parasoft Approach

Reduce the cost of developing high-quality software without sacrificing time to market.

Simplify Software Development & Testing Workflows

Retail and e-commerce businesses need to create secure, reliable, and scalable applications. Parasoft’s simplified test automation workflows and integrations enable teams to optimize continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD). With Parasoft’s extensive support for industry message formats and protocols, DevOps teams can thoroughly test their applications end to end with continuous quality in mind.

Get a Comprehensive View of Quality

Parasoft’s centralized reporting and analytics dashboard provides users with a platform to take action based on the post-processing insights gained from the Process Intelligence Engine (PIE). Parasoft aggregates data from code analysis, unit testing, functional testing, manual testing, and complete code coverage to provide DevOps teams with a comprehensive view of the results of testing.

Test the Complete Digital Experience

Parasoft’s comprehensive test ecosystem reduces the cost associated with training your testers on diverse tools lacking integration. With a one-stop shop for orchestrating functional testing from web and mobile UIs to microservices and mainframe APIs, Parasoft gives you the confidence you need to engage any testing initiative and to know the tool will support your requirements.


"Using Parasoft Virtualize for service virtualization to simulate resources that were still being developed, each team's development and testing could move forward without waiting on the others. Ultimately, we not only completed the project on budget, but actually ended up deploying it two weeks early."
