Continuous Testing

Remove the Testing Bottlenecks from your DevOps Assembly Line

Parasoft Continuous Testing Solutions

You can't accelerate delivery without Continuous Testing.

DevOps is all about removing the bottlenecks from the software development process so that you can accelerate delivery and realize the full potential of Agile. But you can't simply accelerate delivery without quality gates to ensure that defects aren't leaking into production.

Traditional waterfall siloed/over-the-wall QA processes are too slow and too late to work in the Continuous Delivery world. Continuous Testing is the key to unlocking the bridge between continuous development and continuous delivery, and Parasoft is the only vendor that provides everything you need to make it a reality.

Build a Solid Testing Pyramid

Continuous Testing needs to be built on top of a solid testing practice. The testing pyramid outlines a strategy for building an effective testing portfolio. Minimizing brittle, UI-driven end-to-end testing and leveraging a solid foundation of unit tests, with a focus on driving end-to-end testing at the service layer, ensures that tests can be both fully-automated and executed continuously.

"Automate First" to Shift-Left Test Execution

Simply taking all of your manual tests and automating them will lead to wasted time and effort, both in waiting for the application to be fully assembled and ready for testing, and in maintaining the brittle, UI-driven test scenarios. Create a reliable and stable automated test suite from the start by focusing on automated testing at the service layer. Repurpose your API tests to shift-left security and performance, and then leverage service virtualization to eliminate constrained external dependencies, enabling test execution anytime, anywhere.

Use Dynamic Test Environments

As you mature your adoption of continuous testing, access to, and reconfiguring of, the test environments will become the next bottleneck. This is where Parasoft’s Continuous Testing Platform can help with visibility into the test environment and the ability to dynamically reconfigure test dependencies via its web UI, Continuous Integration (CI) plugins (e.g. Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, VSTS), or pragmatically using its REST API.

If you only need the environment while executing the fully automated test suite, the Continuous Testing Platform can help you orchestrate the dynamic deploy-and-destroy of disposable test environments (both on premise and in the cloud via Azure or AWS), giving you on-demand test environments for what you need, when you need it.

Get Continuous Feedback

Aggregate data from across all of your testing practices (static analysis, unit/functional/manual testing, code coverage, and code reviews) using Parasoft DTP's centralized quality hub. Integrate the data into your Continuous Integration (CI) / Continuous Delivery (CD) pipeline and other systems of record (e.g. JIRA) to provide critical feedback at each state of the process.
