PushToTest Taps into the Cloud and CollabNet TeamForge

Open Source TestMaker Added to collabXchange® Marketplace

January 21, 2010 — PushToTest® and CollabNet® announced today an expansion of their business relationship to deliver test capability in the cloud – backed by the latest releases of CollabNet TeamForge® and PushToTest TestMaker™ for enterprise clients, government organizations, and open communities worldwide.

TestMaker, the open source alternative for test automation, has been added to the CollabNet collabXchange® marketplace.  CollabNet, the leader in distributed application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, and PushToTest have integrated TestMaker with the CollabNet platform; organizations can reduce unplanned service interruptions, increase developer and tester productivity, and improve the ability to achieve service level agreements (SLA).

“We designed PushToTest TestMaker to leverage Cloud Computing. CollabNet TeamForge enables us to deliver huge price and feature advantages to our customers,” said Frank Cohen, chief executive officer, PushToTest, and world-renowned Test Geek. “With TeamForge Lab Management support built into TestMaker 5.3, users click the start button, watch TestMaker create load injector machine instances in their own QA lab or a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (EC2), run the test, and then take the machines down. This saves customers huge amounts of budget, relieves them of running their own QA lab, enables tests with up to millions of simulated virtual users, and runs tests from multiple geographic locations – and all on-demand.”

For organizations needing to surface and solve performance bottlenecks and functional problems, TestMaker provides a single tool to verify advanced Rich Internet Applications (RIA), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA,) and Business Process Management (BPM) applications. 

PushToTest supplies the complete test automation platform to deliver functional testing, load testing, and business service monitoring by repurposing the same single test script. CollabNet’s TeamForge Lab Management and CollabNet Subversion reduce time spent on configuring build and test environments and securely managing component reuse libraries or test assets in a centralized repository.

“CollabNet has built the collabXchange to best serve our customer base with options to extend and expand their CollabNet platform,” said Jim Ensell, vice president, business development, CollabNet. “Together, TestMaker and CollabNet TeamForge Lab Management provide a compelling solution for test automation in the cloud.”
