New Hires, Project Wins and Education Programme Boost Edge Testing DevOps Practice
DevOps service supports organisations as they combine software development and operations for quicker delivery to market
One of the UK’s fastest growing and largest independent software testing companies, Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, has boosted its DevOps practice with new hires, project wins and education programme.
Edge Testing’s DevOps service provides organisations with the skills to combine software developments and operations company-wide. Through close consultation, Edge Testing’s DevOps team has already assisted teams, including an award-winning Oracle specialist, to work collaboratively and understand any challenges that a DevOps approach might bring, while also educating them on the best tools to use.
As part of the drive to support organisations looking to move to DevOps, Gal-on Broner has been appointed Principal Technical Consultant and will lead Edge Testing’s DevOps service. Previously CTO at Tesnet (UK) for over 14 years, Gal-on brings requirements analysis, test automation, agile methodology, scrum, and manual, regression and user acceptance testing expertise to his new role.
Sharon Hamilton, Managing Director, Edge Testing, commented: “With the rapid acceleration of DevOps’ uptake within the business community, we wanted to offer our clients access to a greater pool of senior consultants. We hired Gal-on to lead our growing DevOps practice as he has the knowledge necessary to provide a balance of technical test capability and application of best fit tools.”
Gal-on’s appointment follows a series of key senior technical team hires over the past few months, including Senior Technical Test Engineer Iain Finlayson, as part of Edge Testing’s plans to continue expansion across the UK. The software testing company recently announced four major client wins for a variety of software testing services for leading organisations valued at over £17.5 million.
Sharon concluded: “Our DevOps service offering aims to transform business processes, to create both value and cost savings through faster delivery times that improve ROI and reduce support costs at the same time as increasing the quality and reliability of the business’ services.”
As part of its education programme, Edge Testing hosted a series of ‘Testing as part of DevOps’ events at Glasgow, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester in 2018, and has more planned for 2019.
Edge Testing provides services both onsite and remotely from Edge Testing’s Glasgow and Birmingham Digital Test Hubs. Edge Testing launched its first Digital Test Hub in Scotland in 2013, with the second opening last year in the Midlands. The company’s road map now also includes a new Digital Test Hub based in the North of England to offer clients UK-wide an easily accessible remote testing service for their in-house applications and back office systems.
