Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
Blueprint, a global leader in driving IT project success by de-risking and accelerating complex software projects, and QASymphony, a leading provider of enterprise testing software for agile development teams, announced a strategic partnership that integrates and aligns valuable requirements and testing information across the application life cycle.
Business requirements, stakeholder requests, and user stories are examples of business needs, while software testing helps teams confirm they have delivered a high quality product to meet those needs. These two important sets of information have historically been created and managed in siloes, but their alignment is critical to the success of IT initiatives. As organizations transition to Agile, embrace continuous delivery, and accept ongoing change as the norm, requirements and software testing must be aligned to keep everyone on the same page.
To help organizations accomplish this goal, Blueprint and QASymphony have partnered to integrate their platforms, providing a holistic solution that seamlessly synchronizes Blueprint requirement information including user stories, visual models and automatically-generated tests with QASymphony’s qTest test management software to ensure proper test coverage and validating that business needs are being met.
“We are extremely excited about our strategic partnership with QASymphony, for so many reasons. The business value they provide to enterprise organizations closely aligns with Blueprint’s standard of excellence relative to Agile delivery,” said Dan Shimmerman, chief executive officer, Blueprint. “Together, I know that we will expand our collective benefit across the application life cycle and continue to ensure IT project success, reduce rework, and speed organizational transformation.”
The combined Blueprint-QA Symphony solution provides an end-to-end, closed-loop connection between requirement documentation and software testing, keeping all stakeholders aligned across the organization and dramatically accelerating Agile IT delivery.
"The Global 2000 are moving away from legacy software to modern solutions that improve quality and speed-up the time-to-market,” said Dave Keil, chief executive officer, QASymphony. “Blueprint's unique application lifecycle management platform with its automated test generation capabilities, combined with QASymphony’s agile test management software, provides an end-to-end solution to improve test coverage across the enterprise. This will help global enterprises deliver higher quality applications to their end users at an increasingly rapid pace.”
