Software Development Firms Show Highest Demand for Enterprise Unit Testing Tools in 2012, Typemock Finds
Tel-Aviv, November 8, 2012 – Typemock, (http://www.typemock.com/) the leading provider and pioneer of easy unit testing solutions, announced today its analysis of new companies starting unit testing with Typemock. Over the past year, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) had the highest increased demand for automated unit testing tools. Over 30 percent of new Typemock customers originated from this industry.
Developer testing is also becoming widespread in other markets. Typemock’s findings show that new customers from the financial sector made up about 15 percent of new unit testing demand. Security and healthcare sectors each made up approximately 10 percent of new unit testing demand in 2012. The telecom and energy sectors each made up about 5 percent of new companies committed to unit testing.
“Developers are the vanguard of quality. The importance that software firms are placing in unit testing, as demonstrated by the increase in new customers turning to Typemock for their unit testing solutions, is a sign that enterprises recognize the significance and benefits of mocking and automated unit testing. As businesses continue to develop software without unit testing, we will continue to see a steady stream of, and possibly rise in, costly bugs year after year,” said Eli Lopian, founder and CEO of Typemock. “Unit testing and other developer testing should be a no-brainer for every organization, especially those with crucial legacy code, such as banks and other financial firms.”
The Isolator tool family enables easy unit testing of any .NET or C/C++ code (including legacy code and unwritten code).
Typemock was conceived in 2004 to help programmers become Agile through easy unit testing. Since the launch of the first version of Typemock Isolator in 2006, thousands of companies around the world use Typemock tools to make unit testing easy and to prevent bugs. Typemock users are developers from a wide range of sectors – such as defense, medical, and finance – that demand exceptionally high standards of quality and minimum bugs.
