What is Cycle®?
Cycle is the continuous testing platform for your entire team. Cycle brings confidence to your enterprise system deployments by reducing risk, lost hours, and lost revenue. While other solutions are designed for automated testing after development and configuration has occurred, Cycle testing begins before these key phases and continues during and after your Go Live identifying challenges earlier and reducing production risk. With Cycle, the days of lost sleep and extreme stress surrounding a Go Live and peak season are in the past.
While Cycle provides reliable and continuous test automation for technical teams, it also arms non-technical team members with a solution for comprehensive critical business process validation, empowers manual testers, and facilitates realistic and complete performance testing.
What Can Cycle Do For You?
Execute tests faster and more effectively so you can address disruptions before customers are impacted.
Upgrade with Confidence
Apply system modifications and upgrades with confidence, knowing you’ve thoroughly tested all business scenarios.
Automate Your Testing
Conduct full-scale regression tests of any enterprise-level system. With Cycle’s built-in terminal batch tab, you can also facilitate large-scale volume tests.
Written in straightforward, conditional language, Cycle files can be used by business and technical teams to document requirements and test against those requirements.
Who Can Use Cycle?
Cycle can be used across all teams, for everything from automated unit testing and supplementing manual testing to comprehensive acceptance and performance testing. Using straightforward, conditional language, it is a next-generation continuous testing platform built for teams focused on modernizing and streamlining their development and deployment processes.
Our users range from non-technical business analysts and manual testers to technical developers and QA engineers. Cycle is designed for those who want to regularly test their systems and processes to identify errors before production is impacted, while facilitating better communication. It focuses on making testing the forefront of projects with behavior-driven strategies that enforce test-first practices, resulting in more effective and complete test coverage.
Why is Cycle Better?
Cycle is built to unify complex teams.
Although software is trending toward modern web and native mobile technologies, historically software (especially in the enterprise) has been slow to evolve. Effectively maintaining business ecosystems involves a variety of complex – often legacy – technologies and solutions, requiring a diverse set of technical skillsets. Previously comprehensive end-to-end test automation across these complex ecosystems has been viewed as extremely difficult, if not completely unattainable.
Teams typically use a variety of scripts, spreadsheets, status reports, word documents, and many other technology specific tools, segmenting each team and creating silos of knowledge, resulting in missed requirements, miscommunication, non-valuable features, and eventually, dangerous and improperly tested system changes.
Cycle makes comprehensive end-to-end testing a reality. Cycle is a Continuous Testing platform allowing developers to better communicate with upstream, non-technical stakeholders and empower downstream team members like implementation and deployment, as well as quality assurance teams.
