Oracle introduces Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c self-service testing software
Nov 26, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Oracle Corporation, a provider of enterprise software and computer hardware products and services, has introduced Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c self-service testing capabilities software.
The solution is intended to help software development and Quality Assurance (QA) organizations deliver higher quality applications, while enhancing testing efficiency and reducing the duration of testing projects.
It also allows developers to spend more time on actual testing and less on peripheral activities that accompany the testing process, such as setting up hardware and installing testing tools, test assets and application under test. Organizations can also expect significant reduction in hardware, power and cooling costs typically required to support testing and staff time spent on testing projects.
The Testing-as-a-Service solution offers test lab management, automatic deployment of complex multi-tier applications, rich application performance monitoring, test data management and chargeback in a unified workflow.
The features include: Self-service portal for executing application load tests, End-to-end automation of test processes, Sharing of cloud hardware resource pools, Integrated and rich application monitoring and diagnostics, Resource metering and chargeback
"Organizations are spending as much as 50 percent of their QA time with non-test related activities like setting up hardware and deploying applications and test tools," said Leng Tan, Oracle senior vice president, Product Development. "The Oracle Enterprise Manager software testing cloud capability can transform QA organizations by allowing testers to focus on their main task of designing and executing test cases, to ensure that the application under test meets its quality goals, rather than spending valuable time on non-test related activities."
"Customers are increasingly taking advantage of the on-demand benefits of cloud computing," said Michel de Meijer, Leader Global Service Line Testing, Capgemini Group. "Our recently published annual World Quality Report found that 31 percent of organizations are planning to use a TaaS model in the next 12 months and another 47 percent within the next 24 months. We are excited about the new cloud Testing-as-a-Service capability from Oracle since we believe it can allow organizations to significantly reduce testing cost and increase flexibility."
