Provar Launches ProvarDX, the Industry’s First Test Automation Solution Tailor-Made for Salesforce DX Teams
LONDON, England — December 17, 2020
Provar, the leading test automation platform for Salesforce worldwide, today announced the general availability of ProvarDXTM, the first test automation solution designed specifically for teams leveraging Salesforce DX.
ProvarDXTM helps customers radically simplify the process of executing Provar tests in conjunction with Salesforce DX, an integrated, end-to-end development ecosystem designed for high-performance agile software development. Salesforce DX offers a new source-driven development model, enhanced packaging, rapid unit testing and deployment, with improved team collaboration with governance.
“SalesforceDX is an exciting advancement for high performing teams looking for new ways to deliver changes better and faster,” said Richard Clark, Provar Chief Technology Officer. “More and more Salesforce professionals are adopting Salesforce DX as a means to develop apps and manage their Salesforce application lifecycle more efficiently. We saw the opportunity to also integrate our award-winning test automation solution to uniquely support it and at the same time educate our users about the benefits of Salesforce DX for both traditional org-based and source-driven development models.”
Using ProvarDXTM and Salesforce DX together, Salesforce teams can test releases in either scratch orgs or sandboxes prior to them being deployed as part of their continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines. By design, ProvarDXTM addresses the many challenges associated with testing multiple orgs that are temporary in nature throughout the entire release lifecycle. ProvarDXTM includes both a Salesforce CLI plugin for ease of installation and maintenance, and a VS code extension to guide users quickly though the available command options.
As an early adopter, a leading sustainable energy and services company has been using ProvarDXTM and Provar to reduce their regression testing time by 50%. “Provar and ProvarDX™ have enabled us to accelerate our DevOps process and maintain a high quality standard for our Salesforce implementation,” said their Senior Test Consultant.
With ProvarDXTM, developers and testers can execute robust tests that accurately reflect and report on the development progress. Because Provar is a Salesforce-first solution, it natively accommodates the complexities associated with testing both scratch orgs and sandbox environments for Salesforce.
“ProvarDXTM is an important part of our product roadmap,“ said Geraint Waters, Provar Chief Executive Officer. “We’re committed to helping teams get more value out of Salesforce to ultimately support their broader business goals and ProvarDXTM is one way we’re making good on that promise.”
