EPAM Expands QA Testing Solutions
December 09, 2019

EPAM Systems has expanded its crowdtesting software solutions to enable user story testing.

As part of its test IO platform, the enhanced QA testing will help software teams verify that products work in real-world conditions before they are released.

Although identifying defects is crucial and necessary in continuous testing, software QA is not just about bugs – it's also about improving release confidence. By adding user story testing to the test IO platform, businesses will not only be provided with a list of bugs from pure exploratory testing, but will also receive pre-release feedback from real people on real devices. Global customers can now ask test IO's crowdsourced network of software testers if they can complete user stories in the core flows of their products at any point throughout the development cycle.

"Our customers have asked us over the years for two important changes to our model," said Philip Soffer, VP, Head of test IO, EPAM. "First, they asked for positive confirmation, as you would have in a test case. Second, they asked for a way to specify tests that is not as rigid as formal test cases. User stories deliver that – it's the kind of testing that can be used when developing a new feature and, perhaps more importantly, to ensure all core flows work before going live."

Earlier this year, EPAM acquired test IO, a provider in software crowdtesting, to create a service that sources talent from around the world to deliver real-world testing at DevOps speed. Combining EPAM's DevTestSecOps expertise with test IO's platform – which integrates into clients' pipelines and defect tracking systems – enterprise customers can leverage the advantages of continuous testing, such as speed and reliability, to ensure predictable timelines for software releases.
