Rainforest QA Rolls Out New Features to Enhance Testing Visibility


Reporting feature allows development teams to monitor overall health
of test suite, Results Categorization adds test categorization

, the leader in on-demand quality assurance (QA) solutions, today
announced new features that provide businesses with a robust set of
tools to maximize visibility into their testing workflows. Through
platform enhancements powered by Domo's chart-building capabilities,
Rainforest's new Reporting feature allows development teams to instantly
access and download reports, charts and graphs depicting the overall
state of their test suite. This gives them the data necessary to make
informed decisions on what, how much, and how often to test. In
addition, the company launched Results Categorization, a new feature
that allows customers to categorize each individual test outcome, adding
clarity into what action needs to take place next while increasing
visibility into the overall testing suite.

As companies continue releasing new apps at the speed of continuous
delivery, development teams need to remain apprised of testing
conditions at all times to quickly address potential problems and bugs
before code hits production. At the same time, as the number of tests
and data amassed scales, aggregate insights into testing speed, coverage
and predictability are crucial for improving the QA process without
creating unnecessary delays. By incorporating reporting functionality
directly into Rainforest, customers can instantly access, consume and
interact directly with their data to gain visibility and evaluate how
their product and QA teams are performing.

"In order for us to continue delivering exceptional employee experiences
for today's modern, digital workplace, we need to ensure there are no
discrepancies in our system," said Jason Poland, Software Developer at
iOffice. "Our development teams use Rainforest's various reporting tools
to conduct health checks at a glance. Plus, they provide all the
analytics we need to get the most out of our QA processes and deliver a
superior user experience for our customers at all times."

In addition, by expanding Rainforest's testing platform with the new
Results Categorization feature, companies can easily review and label
each test result to help them understand and quantify the amount of bugs
addressed. Team members no longer need to repeatedly interrupt their
workflow for status updates and can spend more time collaborating on
getting new features and products to market faster.

"Development teams today are moving quickly in the era of continuous
delivery, and a common pain point we find among them is the lack of a
quick and convenient method for gaining a comprehensive view of their
test suite," said Derek Choy, CIO at Rainforest. "With Reporting and
Results Categorization built right into the testing workflow, customers
no longer need to feel in the dark about their QA processes and can
continue focusing on scaling the business."
