CollabNet VersionOne Partners with Parasoft
October 10, 2018

CollabNet VersionOne and Parasoft announced a new partnership — CollabNet VersionOne will integrate Parasoft's automated testing suite within its Value Stream Management (VSM) offering.

Developers can spend several hours a day on testing software manually. That siloed manual approach conflicts with the organizational goals of scaling Agile and DevOps, and orchestrating and automating workflows to establish value streams. This new alliance addresses that problem by integrating automated testing practices within their value streams to enable continuous integration and delivery.

The initial integration will bring together CollabNet VersionOne Continuum, a DevOps release management and performance optimization product with Parasoft's automated software testing tools, including its sophisticated analytics. Continuum will give users a single-pane view and control of their automated testing stages and results data, and it will connect the testing phases with the rest of the development workflow.

"Automated software testing is critical for our customers to succeed with their most strategic development initiatives, and we are focused on helping organizations efficiently scale their testing practices to deliver quality software quickly, especially with recent innovations in machine learning and AI," said Elizabeth Kolawa, CEO of Parasoft. "By integrating the deep code analysis and broad testing practices of the Parasoft tool suite with the CollabNet VersionOne DevOps solutions, we are able to provide the software development community with complete visibility into the quality of its value streams in order to release with confidence."

"This alliance reflects our commitment to the Agile community and DevOps innovation," said Flint Brenton, CEO and President of CollabNet VersionOne. "With this integration, teams will have a single interface to execute automated tests, view test processes and results data that quickly reveal quality gaps, security issues, and other bugs and risks, while allowing them to see the relationship of their testing phases to other upstream and downstream development processes."

Continuum's visual interface makes it easy for users to understand the progression of what is happening in the process of development. With the integration of Parasoft's testing tools, Continuum users will be able to execute tests against the application being tested (including unit testing, code quality and coverage analysis, API and functional testing, and performance and load testing), and then access the analytics and results of these tools right in the Continuum interface, so the impact of testing practices on the workflow is visible to the entire team.

"We help customers make software development and delivery a transparent well-orchestrated practice that remains consistently aligned with business objectives. Adding testing automation capabilities supports our vision to remove barriers to adopting Agile at scale, extending DevOps and establishing enterprise value streams. We are pleased to have a partnership with Parasoft because they share our goal to improve software development practices," said Brenton.
