ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- QASymphony (www.qasymphony.com), a developer of QA software testing tools for agile development teams, today announced a strategic partnership whereby Doran Jones, a full-service technology consultancy based in New York, will augment their Software Testing practice consultancy by deploying and reselling cloud-based and on-premise software testing tools developed by QASymphony.
Doran Jones offers test process consultancy that includes Agile adoption, tools implementation and process advisory. Test management, execution and training round out their Software Testing services. Effectively, the partnership makes Doran Jones the first U.S. reseller of QASymphony products, providing a sales channel into the firm's established relationships with several tier-one banks, hedge funds and other global financial institutions.
Most recently, Doran Jones appointed a former Barclays executive, Keith Klain, to the role of COO and to run the firm's software testing practice. Klain most recently ran the Global Test Center for Barclays and was responsible for implementing new testing strategies including context-driven testing principles across the bank.
"We're excited to partner with QASymphony, as they reflect the revolutionary new approach to testing that we feel is necessary for our client's success -- especially those interested in Agile software development methods," said Keith Klain, COO of Doran Jones. "Their on-premise and cloud-based testing tools were designed by experienced testers and offer enterprise-level features suitable for both small and large-scale organizations with in-house software development needs."
"We're pleased with the potential a partnership with Doran Jones offers. We have worked with Keith Klain in the past and highly respect his perspectives and vision. Our organizations are well aligned in our belief that the value of testing extends well beyond the QA department," said Vu Lam, QASymphony CEO. "The evolution of software development in today's rapid release environments requires a holistic approach that bridges the gap between development and testing teams. Our platform provides value across all stakeholders involved in bringing solutions to market, which provides Doran Jones with a unique value proposition to provide to their clients."
Most recently, QASymphony announced general availability of their qTest test management platform. qTest is an enterprise test management platform that fully supports agile testing. qTest eXplorer, an add-on to qTest, automatically captures a tester's actions in both text steps and screen captures. Together these integrated tools comprise a test management platform that offers complete support for Agile testing and provides the only consolidated testing platform to support both scripted and unscripted testing.
QASymphony is a leading provider of testing solutions that fit the needs of testing organizations at any level of maturity. Whether you are making the initial move from manual processes and need basic management help or you have processes and tools in place and are looking to enhance productivity, our test management and agile testing solutions can help you test more effectively. With HQ in Atlanta, GA, presence in Dublin, CA and operations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, QASymphony is a software company built to revolutionize how software is tested, adopted, and supported. Empowering the QA testing teams for companies such as Good Technology, Silverpop, BetterCloud, and Zappos, QASymphony is a software-loving team, united by a common belief that software can be better and better tested.
