Panaya, the leader in SaaS-based testing and continuous delivery, announced it has been named a finalist in the European Software Testing Awards 2018 in the Best Agile Project category for its work with Lapeyre (SAINT GOBAIN group). Now in its sixth year, the awards celebrate companies who have accomplished significant achievements in the software testing and quality assurance market.
The Best Agile Project award highlights organizations that demonstrate a clear understanding of software testing and QA challenges in an agile environment and show how these can be overcome. Additionally, finalists exemplify the following:
- Concrete evidence of excellent communication between all stakeholders
- A commitment to working and learning rapidly and delivering high quality software frequently
- Verification of project goals, importance, achievements and successful results
- Illustration of how the principles of the agile manifesto have been used, i.e., ‘responding to change over following a plan’ and ‘individuals and interactions over processes and tools’
When Lapeyre (SAINT GOBAIN group) launched its global, multi-year IT transformation program, they knew that testing processes could either be an enabler or a major bottleneck. Using Panaya Test Dynamix as the central testing solution of their Testing Factory, the Lapeyre (SAINT GOBAIN group) team was able to take a release-oriented testing strategy on any given scope. Panaya Test Dynamix also helped to improve quality of dev code while fostering innovation, reduce overall IT testing costs and secure IT projects and application maintenance deliveries by limiting regression risks. In addition, Test Dynamix reduced delivery time from 10 to 20 percent while the scope of test coverage was significantly higher.
“Our team is honored to be selected as a finalist for this award, and for the validation it gives to our objective to be a true enabler in fostering innovation and ensuring the delivery of quality products for our end-users,” said Frédéric Legranché, head of IT Architecture & Delivery at Lapeyre (SAINT GOBAIN group). “When it comes to digital transformation and ecommerce in the retail industry, delivery cycles need to be short and of high quality. Using Panaya Test Dynamix, we successfully reduced overall testing efforts while increasing scope, all within shorter timelines and with higher quality. By taking an agile approach, we can deliver functional releases into production on a monthly basis through a development cycle that includes Unit Testing, Regression Testing, Integration Testing and User Acceptance Tests.”
“We’re thrilled to be selected as a finalist together with Lapeyre, enabling their testing team to foster innovation throughout their organization,” said Rafi Kretchmer, chief marketing officer at Panaya. “We understand the challenges enterprise IT teams face in delivering innovation at speed and with quality. With Panaya Test Dynamix, we’re enabling teams to be more agile so they can accelerate the delivery of new software at reduced costs, and with a noticeable improvement in the quality of projects delivered.”
