Parasoft and Electric Cloud Partner to Accelerate Agile Development Testing

Monrovia, CA and Sunnyvale, CA - October 30, 2012

Turnkey Solution Delivers 6x Acceleration of Development Testing to Support Continuous Integration and Agile Software Delivery

Parasoft, industry leader in development testing, and Electric Cloud®, a leading DevOps optimization company, today announced a partnership to help organizations greatly reduce risks associated with rapidly delivering and continuously evolving software. Customer benefits of the resulting joint solution will be discussed on a joint webinar scheduled for today at 11 a.m. PST.

To accelerate the delivery of top-quality software, the new joint solution marries Parasoft’s development testing platform — which centralizes a broad spectrum of automated quality practices from static analysis, to unit testing, to peer code review — with Electric Cloud’s proven technologies for automating and accelerating the application development and delivery process. The result is a solution that optimizes the development testing process for continuous integration and delivery of secure, reliable software that satisfies stakeholder expectations.

“Ensuring quality in an Agile development environment is complex and at times difficult,” explained Wayne Ariola, vice president of strategy for Parasoft. “There are many challenges that force both development and QA to make trade-off decisions versus the clock. With Electric Cloud’s solutions, organizations are able to automate and accelerate their testing activities by leveraging dynamic and scalable cloud infrastructures. Parasoft finds that our mutual clients not only achieve more aggressive quality goals, but also execute their test plans in significantly less time.”

According to Electric Cloud’s vice president of marketing, Kalyan Ramanathan, “Agile requires rapid feedback on software quality. While development testing can improve the quality of the delivered software, given today’s complex software applications, enterprises struggle to run these tests quickly and often. By closely partnering with Parasoft, we’ve created an integrated solution that helps customers achieve dramatic test runtime acceleration, enabling customer to improve developer productivity by increasing the frequency of testing and identifying issues much faster.
