Panaya launches Cloud tool for managing software delivery

Release Dynamix spans testing and business requirements management, says Israel-based quality assurance firm.

Panaya, an Israel-based developer of software quality assurance solutions hosted on the Cloud, has created a tool it is calling Release Dynamix (RDx), designed to help manage software change delivery across environments, from conception through to testing and delivery.

According to Panaya, RDx will provide businesses with an environment that fosters collaboration and allows for regular roll-outs of new features, while minimising risk of failure.

RDx enables management project and portfolio management, release management, test management, test automation, defect tracking, real-time risk analysis, and APIs and integrations with third party solutions, the firm added.

The tool will allow tests and defects that are discovered to be mapped to business change requests and development requirements. It includes a requirement approval workflow so that organisations can create a workflow that is compliant with internal as well as regulatory requirements. Users will be able to use communication functions and notifications to identify conflicts and improve functionality across geographically dispersed locations.

According to Jake Klein, Panaya CEO, quality assurance environments are becoming increasingly complex, creating speed and quality issues. “Panaya Release Dynamix provides real-time visibility into the delivery and quality status of projects and releases, down to the level of individual requirements, ensuring that application owners have complete, accurate information to make decisions,” he said.

The release of the new tool follows Panaya’s launch of a platform for SAP testing, developed in collaboration with Tricentis, the Austria and California-based automated software testing specialist. The platform, called Autonomous SAP Testing, automatically creates business process tests, and leverages machine learning technology to understand usage patterns and eliminate redundant tests.

“Clients will be able to achieve over 50% reductions of test cycle time using Autonomous SAP Testing,” said Panaya’s Klein.

“A recent survey of the SAP installed base found that approximately 72% of SAP installations are verified with manual tests. This slows the pace of innovation and injects a tremendous amount of risk into the release process,” said Wolfgang Platz, founder and CPO of Tricentis. “Our autonomous SAP testing delivers fully automated business process tests for regression testing. This is critical for reducing risk while accelerating the release of critical business functionality. But more so, this joint offering is the missing link to helping organizations accelerate transformative business processes without increasing risk.”
