Continuous testing

Silk Test makes it easy to integrate functional testing in the CI/CD pipeline. Parallel test execution accelerates test timelines providing prompt feedback on daily check-ins or nightly-builds. Simply connect Silk Test with your existing tools including build servers like Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, source control systems like GIT, SVN, and your test management system. Create, customize, and execute tests with Silk Test’s intuitive interface, or leverage Eclipse IDE or Visual Studio. With Silk Test, continuous testing becomes a reality.

Ensure a seamless mobile experience

Use Silk Test to execute regression, cross-platform, and localization testing of all mobile application types, including mobile web, mobile native, and hybrid applications. Efficiently create and maintain functional tests to accelerate time to market. Run tests on real devices, as well as simulators and emulators, to replicate the genuine user experience. Securely share test devices, regardless of their actual physical location, to support globally-distributed teams and leverage devices configured in Silk Central®, Mobile Center, or SauceLabs.

Re-Use Functional Test Assets for Performance Testing and Monitoring

Release cycles are getting shorter and shorter. Tests need to be performed on a daily or hourly basis. This applies not only to functional tests but also to performance tests. To maximize the investment your testing teams have made in creating stable, reliable and fast functional tests, Silk Test makes it easy to reuse those tests as performance tests and for synthetic monitoring purposes as well.

"The PinnacleQM Enginuity solution, using Micro Focus Silk Test, realized a testing effort saving of 56%, while testing cycles were reduced by 82%. Business users now only need to be involved for verification purposes against a UAT model, which means that approximately 25 weeks of testing effort per cycle was reduced to less than one week."
