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.”
