326: How Tricentis Is Leading The Way With Test Automation and Continuous Testing
Tricentis is a software testing startup with dual headquarters in Vienna and Silicon Valley. The continuous testing platform accelerates testing to keep pace with Agile and DevOps. Armed with the industry’s most innovative functional testing technologies, the company breaks through the barriers experienced with conventional software testing tools—achieving test automation rates of over 90%.
After hearing how Tricentis is recognized as the Continuous Testing leader in both the Forrester Wave and the Gartner Magic Quadrant combined with the fact they have over 400 customers including global names from the Top 500 brands such as HBO, Toyota, Allianz, BMW, Starbucks, Deutsche Bank, Lexmark, Orange, A&E, Vantiv, Vodafone, Telstra and UBS, I invited Tricentis CEO Sandeep Johri onto my podcast to find out more.
Earlier this year Tricentis hit the headlines after securing a $165 million funding round from a single investor, Insight Venture Partners. But, this is unlikely to phase the CEO who should know all about the software testing space considering he led HP’s acquisition of industry leader Mercury Interactive in 2006 for about $4.5 billion. But this is not a tech podcast is not about the past, but the tech startup journey to the future.
Recently, Tricentis also acquired Flood IO, an Australia-based load-testing platform used by heavyweight clients such as AT&T, NEC, ABC, and Bloomberg. “Times have changed. Old performance testing approaches are too late, too heavy, and too slow for today’s lean, fast-paced delivery pipelines,” explained Sandeep Johri, CEO of Tricentis.
“Yet, releasing updates without insight into their performance impact is incredibly dangerous in today’s world—with competitors just a click away. Flood’s technology offers DevOps teams unparalleled flexibility for load testing early and continuously. This acquisition enables us to take our mission of ‘transforming testing for DevOps’ to the next level.”
On this episode, I chat to Tricentis CEO Sandeep Johri about the opportunities and challenges around Continuous Testing and Test Automation for large enterprises.
