Automic announces continuous testing integration with HP Quality Center

London: Automic, the leader in business automation today announced the integration of Automic Release Automation with HP Quality Center. Available immediately from the Automic Marketplace, this plugin enables developers and IT Operations to enhance their end to end deployment pipeline with automated test plans, setting up test beds, and orchestrating functional and load testing.

“We are delighted to be integrating Automic with HP Quality Center”

“We are delighted to be integrating Automic with HP Quality Center,” says Todd DeLaughter, CEO of Automic. “Automated testing ensures higher quality software and protects businesses from the risk of software related outages and service disruptions. As release and deployment cycles accelerate, it’s no surprise that the most dynamic and innovative organizations are integrating the automated deployment and test pipelines.”

As enterprises look to drive digital transformation, the pressure is immense on development teams to deliver high quality innovative applications quickly, and reliably, into production. Testing is a crucial component of the release process and can often feel like a drain on resources and a roadblock to deployment. Automation acts as the glue that ties all stages of the deployment pipeline together in a seamless and efficient process, enabling:

  • Seamless execution of test plans, to increase efficiency and reduces manual effort.
  • Automated orchestration of test runs, to increase quality.
  • Optimized deployment, to ensure transparent, traceable and shareable application packages.

According to Andy Cureton, CEO Forest Technologies, “Automated deployments with automated testing integration is a very common ask from customers today. This new integration from Automic is spot on in terms of what customers need and in how it has been implemented, we love it”

By orchestrating HP Quality Center, Automic manages the testing environment by:

  • Provisioning application ready infrastructures and setting up test beds (VM’s and container based architectures are supported).
  • Orchestrating and driving infrastructure as code tools like Chef and Puppet.
  • Promoting packaged versions across environments, automatically, based on test pass/fail data.
  • Auditing workflows that are visually monitored and can be controlled (pause, stop, resume) by authorized users.
  • Enabling teams to safely collaborate across a complex testing matrix.

“Organizations using HP Quality Center already recognize the value of automation and will welcome the integration that has been published on the Automic Marketplace,” said Dr Robin Bloor, Chief Analyst, Bloor Group. “Allowing users to embed quality assurance testing as part of their end-to-end continuous delivery lifecycle will reduce the scope for errors and delays impacting the release of new applications into production environments. At the same time, DevOps teams will benefit from improved visibility as well as increased staff productivity.”

TestPlant granted three new UK patents

TestPlant, the maker of the eggPlant range of software quality tools, today announced that it has been granted three new patents by the Intellectual Property Office of the United Kingdom. The patents relate to TestPlant’s innovative, image-based approach to automating testing of software applications.

The three patents, which have also been filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, are:

  • Scaled image search, which allows eggPlant to test an application on different screen sizes, colors or rotations, without requiring new scripts to be created. This is highly relevant in today’s highly fragmented technology environments, particularly when it comes to testing mobile apps, which have to be run on devices with widely varying screen sizes and resolutions and often requires extensive work by test teams to account for such variations.
  • Retrain mode, which allows eggPlant to “retrain” itself when the testing environment changes. This is particularly well-suited to testing in agile development, when frequently changing web environments are a common occurrence.
  • Auto detect delay, which automatically detects and compensates for the delay between an operation and the causal result, such as when clicking an action and receiving a response message on-screen. In test automation, these delays can often result in false alerts, which take time. This feature saves test teams time by ensuring that scripts are robust and error-free.

“These patents keep TestPlant at the forefront of innovation in the software quality market, and help set the eggPlant products apart when it comes to testing in agile and mobile environments,” said Antony Edwards, CTO, TestPlant. “Businesses are under pressure to reduce the time-to-market of their software applications and this has led to the rise of agile development, but the increasing fragmentation of devices and platforms presents a significant challenge. These patents allow eggPlant to provide significant efficiencies when testing software in today’s highly fragmented technology landscape.”

TestPlant produces the eggPlant range of software quality tools, which tests and monitors the delivery of software applications on any device, as well as across data centers and networks. The company has seen rapid international adoption of its software testing products. TestPlant’s products are used by hundreds of enterprise customers across the United States, Europe, China and Japan, and support customers in sectors ranging from financial services, telecoms, retail and healthcare to automotive, travel and media.
