Today's complex and competitive telecommunications market requires agility.
Being on the cutting edge can be painful.
The telecommunications industry is changing faster than most, due to disruptions that companies like Hulu, Netflix, and Google Play bring – many people are ready to cut the cord and abandon traditional content providers all together. As a result, established telecommunication providers are at risk from smaller, more nimble competitors and need to react in order to bring innovative, digital, high value solutions to market quickly so they don't go out of business. Likewise, with 25% of all outages affecting customers being software related, the challengers in the industry need to be careful that outages in service or security breaches do not cause them to lose a competitive advantage. Parasoft provides a comprehensive set of products to address these challenges, enabling organizations to balance agility and quality.
- Help testers keep pace with development by simplifying omni-channel testing across the various interfaces (Web, Mobile, API), to ensure the customer experience is seamless regardless of the device through which they access your content.
- Shift-left performance testing by reusing functional test scenarios earlier in performance initiatives.
- Stay out of the news by performing early stage security testing to ensure your customer data is not compromised by malicious attacks.
- Test early and test more completely by creating virtual test environments that contain virtual representations of components out of scope of your testing, but required for the tests to execute.
Parasoft's Comprehensive Solution for Communications
Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform
"Since we started, we've been able to virtualize about 98% of the interfaces involved in our tests, and we've seen a 65% annual reduction in the amount of time it takes us to create and maintain test data (factoring in the time we spend creating and updating virtual assets). We've also reduced staging environment downtime by 60%. Our tests are now more predictable, more consistent, and more representative of what would be seen in production."
"When a new feature is introduced into the product, you only have to create tests for the new feature, and that test creation is automated, so you really have more time to spend developing the new features. And when you get to the release, you only have to worry about the current feature set. There is less rework."
"Software issues escaped to production have a very direct impact on customer satisfaction, so we’ve always made it top priority to maintain an industry-low rate of escaping defects. With this automation, we’ve been able to further reduce the rate of escaping defects by about 60-70%."
