A guide to purchasing the right quality assurance software
A collection of articles that takes you from defining technology needs to purchasing options
Telerik Test Studio is a software testing solution that offers automated functional Web, desktop, mobile, manual, performance, load and exploratory testing capabilities. It ships as both a standalone application and a Visual Studio plug-in, thus allowing true developer-tester collaboration in the field of test automation in a Visual Studio environment. It's easy start-up-and-use quality assurance software that helps teams implement test automation regardless of their size or development methodology used.
Who benefits most from the Telerik Test Studio?
Seamless tester and developer collaboration is a highlight of Test Studio that differentiates it from other quality assurance software products. Unlike other testing solutions that force you to use proprietary scripting languages, Test Studio testers can leverage real programming languages like C# and VB.NET. Users can pass tests over to their testing teammates or developers via source control. Telerik Test Studio supports continuous integration (CI), allowing teams to collaborate in a better way by integrating individual developer's changes into the main source code control system or repository, performing a new build, verifying the build and running automated tests against those builds. Test Studio allows users to integrate any build server -- like CruiseControl, TeamCity or the Visual Studio Build Server -- with the recorded tests and execute them seamlessly on the server.
Businesses that want to develop quality apps and are looking for strong quality assurance software should consider Test Studio. For organizations that use or are planning to implement an Agile or CI methodology, Test Studio is an especially strong choice. This is due to its exploratory testing capabilities, Visual Studio plug-in and integration with popular build servers.
What integrations does Telerik Test Studio support?
Telerik Test Studio supports integration with existing test automation solutions or with other tools that might already exist in an organization's test environment. These integrations include working with Microsoft Test Manager to associate existing tests with work items; the ability to push bug reports to Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Telerik TeamPulse or JIRA; the ability to tie-in with any build server like Microsoft Build Server, TeamCity, CruiseControl and Hudson/Jenkins; generating tests for NUnit, MbUnit, Microsoft Test or xUnit; and pushing tests and results into Hewlett Packard Enterprise Quality Center.
