Copado DevOps platform company has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Qentinel. Designed for both non-technical and code-based developers, Qentinel provides robotic software testing for enterprise software platforms like Oracle, SAP and Microsoft. This acquisition will enable Copado customers to build and deploy the releases with less risk across multiple clouds.
Software testing has become critical to the DevOps process, with quality as the leading driver of risk, cost and speed within the software development life cycle. In 2020, software delivery quality has declined to over 33% change failure rates from 24% in 2019. As enterprises continue to shift to the cloud, AI-enabled testing is be critical to ensure continuous quality. Gartner reports that 75% of large enterprises will be using AI-enabled test automation tools that support continuous testing across the different stages of the DevOps lifecycle by 2024.
Qentinel represents the next-generation of automated testing based on the industry’s leading robotic software technology. Using AI and machine learning, Qentinel delivers analytics on the current and future quality of the whole software system, providing a holistic view of your DevOps health. When test cases collect data and tests are planned in detail, customers receive comprehensive test coverage, easy maintenance in complex environments and proper data for decision-making.
“DevOps is becoming the de facto way to deliver software in a digital-first world. Yet without automated testing, it becomes almost impossible to successfully practice DevOps,” said Esko Hannula, Chief Executive Officer for Qentinel. “Testing and DevOps are being tightly integrated to deliver more results to customers via shifting quality left with end-to-end quality control from planning through delivery. We are excited to join the Copado team to bring highly scalable, easily maintainable, AI-driven software testing to customers.”
