Enterprise release management software vendor, Plutora, has released its Plutora Test Environment Manager platform.
The Cloud based on-demand application is designed to provide transparency and control of test environments at organisations.
Plutora co-founder and director, Dalibor Siroky, said that test environment managers will now be able to manage the layers of standalone and integrated environments via the Cloud.
“Unifying the test environment process within the enterprise requires complete transparency on all processes,” he said.
“Substantial time and financial resources are lost due to unnecessary delays in the pre-production environment.”
Distracted by issues
Siroky said that between 30 to 40 per cent of testing time tends to be lost in environment related issues.
“On large programs, each day of outage can easily cost up to $100,000,” he said.
Test Environment Manager overcomes this by identifying all pre-production environments used during all release phases.
“In the process, the lost productivity brought on by spreadsheet sprawl and poor collaboration between delivery and operational teams is remedied,” Siroky said
Another benefit Siroky highlights in Test Environment Manager is the ability to identify and avoid environment contention when working with disparate project teams.
