Forrester has published the report “Now Tech: Continuous Automation And Testing Services Providers, Q1 2021” on February 23, 2021 and named Ciklum among 43 Continuous Automation And Testing (CAT) Services Providers Overview. Forrester is the research and advisory company that assists business and technology leaders in accelerating growth. The Overview is aimed to help application development and delivery leaders to choose from a broad set of vendors that vary by size, functionality, geography, and vertical market focus.
CAT providers guide on how to move from manual to continuous testing, build or augment testing capabilities, improve overall quality at speed and generally keep up with digital transformation.
The increased complexity and pace of modern application delivery brings new challenges for businesses related to risks mitigation when making a release. Often organisations put all the effort transforming DevOps neglecting such an essential part of a delivery as Testing that meanwhile loses its pace. A digitally transformative environment requires businesses to be proactive and ensure immediate quality feedback with each new build. Modernising Testing strategy by adopting Continuous Automation and Testing help organisations achieve quality at speed and ultimately achieve scalability and cost-effectiveness.
One of the practical examples of how CAT worked for the benefit of the business and digital transformation is a wholesale specialist METRO that partnered with Ciklum to change the way the hospitality sector buys and sells. Ciklum and METRO Markets built the new B2B commerce platform end-to-end within only nine months. By optimizing Continuous Delivery and Deployment, Ciklum and METRO Markets reduced time to production for new features and functionalities to only 40 minutes. Joint implementation of such an engineering approach allowed the development to be exceptionally flexible, which led to a seamless launch of a product that is now used by satisfied users.
Seeking Alpha, a premier website for actionable stock market opinions and analysis, and intelligent finance discussion, also turned to Ciklum. Ciklum’s testing team developed a robust automation framework with smoke, regression, manual and automated tests from scratch that enabled product and development teams to identify and fix bugs faster. The automation testing infrastructure constructed by Ciklum allowed Seeking Alpha to identify bugs before production, ensure smooth app release and reduce testing time by 50%.
