Established and New Market Entrants Pushing Innovation and Broader Business Message on the Need for Quality in Software


San Francisco, CA. Aug 17, 2010voke, inc., a modern analyst firm focused on the edge of innovation, today announced the publication of a new Market Mover Array Report on Testing Platforms. Focused on innovation and ability to direct the conversation at a business level, rather than historical market share, the Testing Platforms Array highlights the underlying expansion currently occurring in the testing market, as both new and established vendors offer solutions well beyond the status quo. The report highlights the power of new technology, the cloud, and virtualization, delivering solutions to age-old complex development and testing challenges.

“The testing market is finally awakening from its long, quiet slumber,” said Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke, inc. “Powerful new technology has emerged to simplify complex challenges related to software development and testing. From an innovation perspective, this is one of the most exciting times in the history of the testing market. Additionally, we are embarking on the early stages of convergence between embedded systems and IT.”

Lanowitz continued, “Software has expanded its reach to become responsible for business processes, consumer purchases, transportation, communications, and devices that are always on and, in some cases, life-critical.  The stakes of making sure that proper testing occurs at all levels are greater than ever. Today’s business executive must be able to guarantee working software free of defects to avoid compromising the business.”
