Copado Announces Agreement to Acquire Leading AI Testing Company to Improve Quality of Multi-Cloud Digital Transformation Projects
Qentinel will bring breakthrough robotic automation technology to the Copado DevOps platform, enabling businesses to build and deploy code faster with confidence
CHICAGO, June 29, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Copado, a leading DevOps platform powering the world’s largest digital transformations, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire Qentinel. Designed for both non-technical and code-based developers, Qentinel provides robotic software testing for all major enterprise software platforms, including Oracle, SAP, and Microsoft. It is the only proven, enterprise-ready, AI-enabled testing solution for any cloud platform. This acquisition enables Copado customers to build and deploy the highest quality releases with less risk across multiple clouds. The transaction is pending government approval and is expected to be finalized within the next 30 days.
Testing has become essential to the DevOps process, with quality being the primary driver of risk, cost, and speed in the software development lifecycle. In 2020, the quality of software delivery has declined to over 33%, changing failure rates from 24% in 2019. As businesses continue to migrate to the cloud, AI-powered testing will be essential to ensure continuous quality. Gartner Reports that 75% of large companies will use AI-based test automation tools that support continuous testing across the various stages of the DevOps lifecycle by 2024.
“The digital transformation creates a massive incentive for companies to take advantage of AI-enabled test automation and a left-shift approach to deliver quality with confidence and without compromising speed,” said Ted Elliott, Managing Director of Copado. “The integration of Qentinel into Copado DevOps allows us to ensure continuous quality when building and deploying in multi-cloud environments. We are excited to bring Qentinel’s robotic software testing to customers to help them accelerate their speed of innovation and speed to market.
Qentinel represents the next generation of automated testing based on industry-leading robotic software technology. Using AI and machine learning, Qentinel provides cutting-edge analysis on the current and future quality of the entire software system, providing a holistic view of your DevOps health. When test cases collect data and tests are planned in detail, customers benefit from comprehensive test coverage, easy maintenance in complex environments, and appropriate data for decision making.
“DevOps is emerging as the de facto way to deliver software in a digitally driven world. Yet without automated testing, it becomes almost impossible to practice DevOps successfully, ”said Esko Hannula, CEO of Qentinel. “Testing and DevOps are tightly integrated to deliver more results to customers via shifting quality left with end-to-end quality control from planning to delivery. We are delighted to join the Copado team to provide a highly scalable, easily maintainable, AI-based solution from software testing to customers. “
Qentinel’s platform ensures the quality of end-to-end business processes that span multiple platforms and clouds. It can be set up in minutes, with no onsite infrastructure to deploy, allowing users to start automating testing instantly. By removing risky and manual tasks from software development, testers and developers, including non-technical users, can focus on bigger issues. Qentinel’s clients include Brunswick, Elisa and Konecranes. All Qentinel employees will join Copado to bring cutting-edge AI testing expertise to clients looking to transform their publishing processes with speed, quality and value.
