A software house uses Traffic Parrot to complete testing months ahead of schedule and to enable automated testing

  • We have used Traffic Parrot to simulate third-party HTTP services and test our product in isolation. Traffic Parrot consultants have developed custom-made simulators for us. During the first testing cycle, it allowed us to find 28 issues with our product’s release candidate and fix them early in the software lifecycle. This means completing the testing schedule more than 2 months earlier than anticipated just for the first release alone.

    We have also used Traffic Parrot to create third party system simulators that communicate over IBM MQ queues. The previous process took at least 30 minutes of manual effort per test case to verify when the interface was available—and sometimes up to 3 days when testing needed to be scheduled with external teams. Our Traffic Parrot simulators respond within milliseconds and are always up. They enabled our team to create automated tests that rely on those service responses and meet our department automated testing KPIs. This allowed us to reduce the regression testing cycle from 30 days to a week.
