Parasoft recently conducted a survey asking software developers, testers, and performance test engineers a series of questions about their access to test environments.

Key findings indicate that the number and complexity of test environments that need to be accessed for an organization’s various projects has become overwhelming—to the point that teams are unable to complete the expected level of testing.

  • Testing today's composite, distributed applications requires interacting with a number of dependent (connected) applications, which are difficult to access.
  • Respondents reported needing access to an average of 30 dependent applications, but having consistent access to only 6.
  • An overwhelming majority of respondents reported having restricted access to the test environments required for completing their development and testing tasks.
  • The time available to access test environments is extremely limited and 30% of that limited time was consumed by configuration/setup tasks.
  • Ultimately, there was time to execute only 50% of the expected test plans.
