Parasoft and Electric Cloud Partner To Eliminate Software Release Bottlenecks with Service Virtualization and Continuous Delivery

Parasoft, the industry leader in service virtualization, API testing and Development Testing, and Electric Cloud, the leading provider of Software Delivery Acceleration solutions, today announced a joint solution that integrates Parasoft’s service virtualization and Electric Cloud’s software automation technologies to enable optimized Continuous Delivery capabilities for software organizations.

Many software organizations are adopting Continuous Delivery to deliver high quality software at rapid frequencies and to keep in sync with dynamic market needs and changing customer requirements. Automating the build-test-release-deploy process is a critical requirement of Continuous Delivery. However, this process today is commonly impacted by constraints associated with a staged test environment—for instance, the complexity and/or cost of accessing dependencies during automated continuous testing (including end-to-end functional, load/performance, and security testing). Service virtualization’s simulated test environments remove these constraints. By eliminating key obstacles to comprehensive continuous testing, the joint Parasoft and Electric Cloud solution helps organizations reduce the time, cost, and risks associated with rapidly delivering software for today’s complex systems.

“With the shift towards composite applications occurring alongside the growing popularity of Agile and other iterative methods, the rate of change and the complexity of each change are increasing exponentially—dramatically escalating application development costs and risks,” explained Wayne Ariola, Parasoft Chief Strategy Officer. “Service virtualization is the missing link that’s required for performing the necessary level and frequency of testing across these rapidly-evolving systems. When Parasoft’s service virtualization is combined with Electric Cloud’s software delivery platform, customers can significantly accelerate application deployment.”

Kalyan Ramanathan, VP of Marketing at Electric Cloud, added, “Continuous Delivery helps organizations deliver better quality software with faster feedback cycles. To realize a Continuous Delivery vision, you need automation and software delivery acceleration across the build-test-release-deploy process for faster feedback cycles. Integrating service virtualization into the build-test-release-deploy process allows organizations to establish automated quality gates for even the most complex interdependent systems and accelerate and automate the testing process. Through our partnership with Parasoft, we help organizations reduce their risk exposure, bringing higher quality software to the market faster with lower costs.”
