All organizations are under pressure to reduce costs and improve quality, whilst keeping pace with new technologies and practices. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Cloud are emerging to become the predominant business models and creating disruption in the testing tools market. The traditional focus has been to test same specific activities (load, stress, functional, regression). Economic conditions and pressure to improve time to market are placing increased emphasis on productivity and moving away from the shadow of shrink-wrapped software and towards the future of Cloud & SaaS models. With poor software quality leading to user dissatisfaction as well as increased development and maintenance costs, good quality assurance is an essential but costly process. Therefore, having a well-defined testing software tool and practices to drive software quality will positively affect the overall bottom line of the business.
Unlike traditional tools, Validata SAS validates Core Banking systems, aligns testing to business requirements whilst improving productivity and automation coverage, and achieves reduced test cycle times in all phases of testing. Service offerings and flexible pricing schemes are all part of the unique offering of TestCloud™. TestCloud™ is a standardized Test ‘Utility’ solution with well-defined best practices, test automation, re-usable test assets and standards, robust defect and change management processes, and enhanced ROI. TestCloud™ enables customers to move away from unstable environments, limited centralized governance and high costs of quality, and establish their own test environment in the cloud leveraging pre-built test cases and Validata SAS automated solution that can reduce test effort by a factor of as much as ten to one.
