Parasoft Joins Skytap TapIn Partner Program

Companies Announce Joint Product Offerings to Enable Customers to Deliver Better Software Faster

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Skytap, the leading provider of self-service application development environments in the cloud, today announced Parasoft, the leading provider of Service Virtualization, API Testing, and Development Testing technologies, joined the Skytap TapIn Partner Program. Under the terms of the partnership, Parasoft customers will gain instant access to Skytap's SaaS solution through two joint product offerings designed to help enterprises build, test, and release better software in less time.

"Skytap is committed to working with leading partners to bring innovation to help our mutual customers remove constraints and inefficiencies from their software development lifecycle," said Wayne Monk, vice president of business development and alliances of Skytap. "Our partnership with Parasoft is a great example of how we are able to combine Parasoft's embedded development and service virtualization solutions with Skytap's on-demand development and test environments to help organizations reduce the time, effort and cost to deliver secure, reliable and compliant software. We are better together."

Customers can now leverage two joint offerings from Parasoft and Skytap:

  • Parasoft Virtualize plus Skytap Cloud - Enterprises have access to on-demand complete, complex test environments by leveraging their existing virtualized environments as well as simulating non-virtualized infrastructure (including mainframes and external services) to more closely mirror their production environment. Together these technologies provide development and test teams with better test coverage, increased velocity, and greater throughput -- resulting in higher quality software.
  • Parasoft Unit Test and Static Analysis plus Skytap Cloud - Leverages the Skytap Cloud service to provide on-demand access to multiple, concurrent test environments and continuous integration allowing development and test teams to perform parallel unit testing and static analysis to automate and shorten their testing windows. Together these technologies allow companies to yield greater throughput and increased velocity in order to become more agile and release software quicker.

Additionally, Parasoft Virtualize and the Parasoft Development Testing Platform solutions will be available in the Skytap public template library.

"Access remains one of the most daunting barriers to SDLC acceleration," stated Wayne Ariola, chief strategy officer for Parasoft Corporation. "Whether we're talking about access to dev/test environments or access to dependent applications, the ability to pull all the required pieces together in order to test thoroughly is equivalent to herding cats. The Parasoft-Skytap partnership delivers ubiquitous, global access to complete dev/test environments, allowing organizations to deliver software faster, with reduced business risk."

Skytap and Parasoft, along with Electric Cloud, Perforce, Puppet Labs, Better Software and SD Times, will host the SDLC Acceleration Summit on Tuesday, May 13, in San Francisco. The summit will bring together software development industry leaders to explore best practices, key strategies, industry trends, and innovations in accelerating software delivery without compromising application quality.
