The world is getting digitized every moment and the industry of software is expanding at a massive rate to fulfill the daily needs of our lives. With this sudden shift in the industry, there comes the necessity for the entrepreneurs to offer the most trendy and updated solutions to their customers ensuring that the working software is free from defects to avoid compromising on the business and its safety or security. While customer’s experience is imperative in today’s scenario, cost, time-to-market and customer experience are the top priorities.
In such times of change, it apparently seems that SMAC (Social, Media and Analytics in the cloud) and Digital Technology are changing the behavior of organizations across all industries and as a result, a dramatic change can be identified in end customer experiences, operational processes and business models for engagement.
Until now organizations have been forced to bolt together a number of specialized tools from different suppliers in order to achieve anything close to ALM (Application Lifecycle Management). The experts suggest that implementing ALM systems have always been challenging in terms of cost and complexity. It apparently seems that with no integration framework, control has been uncertain at its best, creating both delay and risk in the development process and in operations. With the best platform for integrated tools, Validata, a leader in the market of Enterprise Software for ALM and DevOps, is helping its clients accelerate delivery, optimize business risks and reduce costs.
Transitioning from Quality Assurance to Digital Assurance
Validata’s Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and DevOps suite is a central platform for integrated tools, built mainly for the Banking and Finance sector. The company is primarily focusing on managing core automated lifecycle activities such as continuous testing , build, release and configuration management, enabling the development of software applications from conception to delivery and allowing banks to encourage best practices by capturing and reusing project assets and process knowledge.
Unlike other solutions, which are a mix of some good solutions blended with some extraordinary patches, Validata builds every solution from the ground level that adds a flavor of uniqueness to its solution. Built on a robust platform that covers every aspect of the application lifecycle, Validata uses open technology enabling its clients retain their existing tool and use them seamlessly along with Validata’s solutions.
With an aim to dig deeper into the world of technology and offer best-in-class solution to its clients, Validata see the process of delivering software as a continuous cycle of inter-related steps including definition, design, development, testing, deployment, reporting & metrics, and maintenance. They say that each of these steps needs to be tightly managed and controlled. This is what makes them a leading player in designing, developing, delivering ‘best of breed’ ALM solutions and helps them to showcase the expertise required to accelerate productivity.
Validata’s agile ALM platform not only brings together the requirements, test management, agile test data management, testing, defects, planning, resources, development and deployment, but also has the capability of integrating itself with external systems such as HP, QC, CA Clarity, IBM RTM, Atlassian Jira, etc., enabling continuous delivery, integration, testing and constant monitoring. Their extraordinary platform enables end-to-end visibility and control over the application lifecycle to help key stakeholders keep the track of costs, progress, and quality and prevent slippage. The company also offers mobile testing automation in line with sprint-based development that speeds up work processes and encourages better and more robust results.
