Integrate Service Virtualization, API Testing By @Parasoft | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Enable Continuous Testing and Significantly Expand Test Coverage and Traceability

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 get more details from write-ups at Programmable WebSD Times, and Kin Lane's API Report.

Customer Case Study: Leading US Telecom
To promote greater self-service in compressed time frames, one of the largest telecom companies in the United States is leveraging the integrated Parasoft platform to enhance collaboration, share reusable tests, initialize test data, and provision test environments-all from a centralized interface. The Parasoft solution has allowed the organization to significantly reduce the internal constraints of accessing test data, as well as accessing complete test environments. The result: they have been able to "shift left" quality efforts by reducing the cycle time for test data acquisition by 80% and improve environment access speeds to real-time (from an up-to-2-week wait time).

What's New Webinar
To learn how this release can help your organization enable continuous testing and significantly expand test coverage and traceability, join us for our live webinar New Release Integrates Service Virtualization, API Testing & Test Lab Management on Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST. We'll be covering new functionality such as:

  • Next-generation virtual asset and test creation that delivers the most logical and concise set of service virtualization and test assets
  • Effortless handling of REST services and JSON payloads with advanced automation
  • Rapid browser-based creation and management of test and service virtualization assets from Environment Manager
  • Centralized visibility into the entire ecosystem across servers and environments
  • REST API for creating, managing, and updating service virtualization and test assets
  • Support for Selenium WebDriver and and HP ALM 12

CloudEXPO Stories
A look across the tech landscape at the disruptive technologies that are increasing in prominence and speculate as to which will be most impactful for communications – namely, AI and Cloud Computing. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Curtis Peterson, VP of Operations at RingCentral, highlighted the current challenges of these transformative technologies and shared strategies for preparing your organization for these changes. This “view from the top” outlined the latest trends and developments in AI and Cloud Computing technology innovation for enterprise communications to help you shape your future strategy.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lavi, a Nutanix DevOps Solution Architect, explored the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.
Historically, some banking activities such as trading have been relying heavily on analytics and cutting edge algorithmic tools. The coming of age of powerful data analytics solutions combined with the development of intelligent algorithms have created new opportunities for financial institutions. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sebastien Meunier, Head of Digital for North America at Chappuis Halder & Co., discussed how these tools can be leveraged to develop a lasting competitive advantage in priority areas: customer analytics, financial crime prevention, regulatory compliance and risk management.

According to the IDC InfoBrief, Sponsored by Nutanix, “Surviving and Thriving in a Multi-cloud World,” multicloud deployments are now the norm for enterprise organizations – less than 30% of customers report using single cloud environments. Most customers leverage different cloud platforms across multiple service providers. The interoperability of data and applications between these varied cloud environments is growing in importance and yet access to hybrid cloud capabilities where a single application runs across clouds remains elusive to most organizations. As companies eagerly seek out ways to make the multi cloud environment a reality, these new updates from Nutanix provide additional capabilities to streamline the implementation of their cloud services deployments.
