Platform supports automation, DevOps and predictive analytics
(SAN JOSE, Calif. April 12, 2017) - Zephyr, the fastest growing provider of software quality management solutions with over 11,000 global customers across 100 countries, announces the release of a new platform for complete control, customization and usability. Zephyr’s new open platform enables test management and automation, while delivering a rich set of analytics. Its redesigned user interface is powered by HTML5/Angular JS2, resulting in an intuitive, user-friendly experience. The platform is built on a micro-services architecture, which allows it to be elastically scaled to meet the growth and availability enterprises with thousands of users.
“Zephyr’s goal and vision for our powerful open platform is to play an integral part in end-to-end software development lifecycle and allow enterprises to release high-quality software on time and within budget, while enabling automation in each step of the testing process,” says CEO, Scott Johnson. “We want to support our customers DevOps journey by providing extensive integration capabilities and intelligent analytics.”
The platform offers a rich and extensible set of REST APIs that provide seamless integrations with requirement and defect management tools such as JIRA, Doors, Rally, and many others. It also provides rich SSO and LDAP capabilities to facilitate enterprise deployments across large user bases. Zephyr enables test automation and provides the capability to integrate with a plethora of modern automation tools, such as Selenium, Cucumber, EggPlant, QTP and more. With its newly designed ZBot agents, it can run on any CI/CD framework (such as Jenkins, Hudson, Bamboo) and bring automation and manual test results together seamlessly. This delivers a single enterprise-wide view of software quality and project status.
The analytics engine has been completely redesigned and comes with an array of customizable gadgets, burn down charts, traceability metrics and reporting. The analytics engine will help enterprises quickly derive information on quality metrics and use that information to identify necessary corrective actions. The platform integrates with two new Zephyr add-ons; a DevOps dashboard to gain completely visibility across the tooling pipeline and predictive analytics which will enable enterprises to identify problems with release quality before they occur. Product teams will then be better able to make data driven decisions to meet release deadlines with within budget and quality confidence.
Zephyr is a leading provider of quality management solutions, powering quality for more than 11,000 global customers across 100 countries. Project teams and enterprises of all sizes use Zephyr’s products to enable continuous testing throughout their entire software delivery pipeline to release higher quality software, faster.
