We are fortunate to have such a robust user base for our products
Sausalito, CA (Vocus) November 16, 2010
Ascert announced today the general release of VersaTest Automator version 1.2. The latest version contains major enhancements in the key areas of security and interoperability.
The new security capabilities increase control over access to data and functions within the product. This increased control permits product access and operation by a wider set of users, both inside and outside the customer’s organization, because of the ability to configure per-user features and restrictions.
Interoperability enhancements include an additional method of integrating with HP’s Quality Center Software. This allows the VersaTest Automator product to control and run tests and then push its results directly into Quality Center. This benefits organizations with large installations of Quality Center as it reduces the IT management overheads necessary to integrate VersaTest Automator. This augmentation complements the existing VersaTest Automation Server Plugin for HP Quality Center Software Plug-in used to allow operation of VersaTest Automator from within the Quality Center Interface.
Another enhancement that aids interoperability is the ability for Test Plans within VersaTest Automator to make use of external programs and utilities, including testing products from third-parties. This provides greater reach, flexibility, and completeness to the testing process by increasing the amount of automated operations and validations that may be centrally performed on the applications under test.
“We are fortunate to have such a robust user base for our products," says Simon Miles, Ascert’s Product Architect for the VersaTest product line. The enhancements in our latest release are largely due to user feedback as a result of increased product use and exposure at customer sites. Our customers are our partners and high levels of collaboration allow us to continue to grow the product in ways that meet the changing testing landscape. These relationships really help us to stay out ahead of the curve.”
In addition to time savings in testing, VersaTest Automator decreases the time involved in analyzing testing results. With an easy to use GUI interface and “audit capture” functionality, the product increases both testing accuracy as well as ROI.
