SOMERVILLE, Mass. & BANGALORE, India--SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, today announced a reseller partnership for software testing services with Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company.
With the number of external interfaces integrating with an organization’s business processes constantly on the rise, the significance of testing is greater than ever before. Wipro AssureNXT and SmartBear’s testing platform provide a test readiness platform to enterprise customers, expanding the market reach of SmartBear.
“The twin trends of agile development and defect prevention, rather than detection, have led to an increase in adoption of Test First Strategy to detect defects earlier in the software cycle,” said Kumudha Sridharan, Senior Vice President, Wipro Limited. “As a leader in application testing, Wipro recognizes that as testing moves further into the realm of code quality, there is an increasing need to do testing well before the graphical user interface (GUI) is developed. The Wipro-SmartBear partnership offers a massive opportunity to address the twin challenge and enable the Test First Strategy.”
Wipro has also integrated key aspects of SmartBear’s technology into AssureNXT, Wipro’s next generation managed services QA delivery platform that combines best-in-class tools, IPs and best practices, to address the needs of multi-speed enterprises implementing bi-modal IT. The solution ensures business applications resiliency via highly automated processes, QA analytics and provisions end-to-end collaboration with business. By integrating SmartBear’s technology, customers can benefit from a seamless experience for functional and non-functional testing.
“SmartBear is thrilled to enter into a partnership with Wipro, one of the world’s leading testing service providers,” said Doug McNary, Chief Executive Officer of SmartBear Software. “The capabilities that this partnership brings will help end users to address the delivery of higher quality applications faster at a more reasonable price with access to highly trained and skilled testing consultants for implementation, training and maintenance.”
SmartBear has a complete suite of award-winning testing automation tools, including TestComplete, an automated testing platform; LoadComplete, the industry leading performance and load testing tool for websites and web apps, and test management tool, QAComplete. SmartBear’s API Readiness framework, Ready! API, is a unified set of graphical and code-based testing tools, that includes SoapUI NG for functional testing; LoadUI NG Pro for load testing; ServiceV Pro for API service virtualization; Secure Pro for dynamic API security testing and TestServer for continuous integration environments respectively.
