Integrate Service Virtualization, API Testing and Test Lab Management
We're excited to announce Parasoft's latest release: a consolidated platform
uniting API testing, service virtualization, and test environment management.
The new release is designed to help organizations "shift left" the testing
effort and accelerate the SDLC to meet the growing time-to-market pressure
for software applications.
The ability to rapidly develop and continuously execute end-to-end tests-even
in complex or frequently-evolving environments-is essential to accelerating
application delivery while minimizing business risks. That's why Parasoft
allows users to create a simulated test environment in less than a minute,
then immediately start defining and executing tests against the appropriate
test environment configurations.
Here's a quick overview of what's new....

You can't truly accelerate the SDLC without a dependable continuous testing
process. Evolving from automated to continuous testing requires on-demand
access to a complete, realistic test environment. Yet, such access can be
extremely difficult to achieve with today's increasingly complex and
interdependent applications. Consider these recent research findings from
On average, organizations require access to 33 systems for dev/test, but have
unrestricted access to only 18
Only 4% of participants report immediate, on-demand access to dev/test lab
The majority ... (more)
Electric Cloud's Juan Jimenez recently blogged:
"Consider this statement of truth – the bane of any Continuous Delivery
strategy is testing. You can have wildly fast builds...completely automated
Continuous Integration and Delivery... but if your Continuous Testing slows
your Agile-ity to a crawl, it’s all for naught, sire.
Consider as well that the number one root cause for software failures is
insufficient testing, and the number one reason for that is the time and
effort it takes to perform full testing. When there are conflicting
priorities, corners are cut and test schedules ... (more)
At this year's SDLC Acceleration Summit, Parasoft asked development
managers, architects, developers, quality engineers, and other stakeholders
to share their opinions about the current state of the software development
lifecycle and what's needs to change in order to better balance cost,
quality and speed.
Here are the responses to the question "If you could wave the magic wand, how
would you beat development bottlenecks?"

At the 2014 SDLC Acceleration Summit, Peter Coffee, VP for Strategic
Research at Salesforce.com, led a fantastic discussion panel that asked the
question, "Sure, your SDLC is accelerating, but in what direction?" The panel
addressed the biggest barriers to SDLC acceleration, how to overcome them,
and what the real benefits are to truly delivering better software faster.
This panel consisted of:
Kevin Bedell - Director of Architecture, Zipcar Geoffrey Davis - Software SOA
