Our Technical Infrastructure

Applause’s open and enterprise-class SaaS infrastructure integrates seamlessly into your existing processes to help you release exceptional products quickly and with greater confidence.

Enterprise Scale, Flexibility and Stability

Full Integration Into Your SDLC for Continuity and Speed

As a foundational element of the Applause Product Excellence Platform™, our enterprise-class SaaS infrastructure connects you with our global community of digital experts and our full range of digital quality products and solutions. This SaaS infrastructure integrates seamlessly and completely with your existing bug tracking systems, automation frameworks, release management processes and test case management tools.

Our technical infrastructure is built for the enterprise, with the scale, flexibility and stability to rapidly launch new tests and export issues into your bug tracking systems immediately. We offer two-way integration with the leading bug tracking systems, platform APIs and bug fix verification tools for efficiency and ease of use. And our Applause Quality Score (AQS) helps you track and improve quality over time by evaluating your release readiness build over build.

We embed directly into your software development lifecycle, so you can implement testing earlier and align with the rapid cadence of CI/CD. As part of our Product Excellence Platform, we can bring specialized testing into your CI/CD pipeline to streamline processes and improve product quality and user experiences at a faster cadence.

Test and Release at the Speed of Agile

Best Practices, Methodologies and Processes to Meet the Requirements of Agile

We match our testing sprints with those of your internal teams to align with an incremental and iterative approach to Agile software design and development. Our teams are fully embedded into your daily scrum meetings to help define the right test criteria and strategy. Through fully integrated manual and automated testing, we provide you with continuous, high-quality feedback, which is a critical component of Agile development and DevOps. And our Solution Delivery Managers act as your digital quality consultants, working closely with you and your teams to ensure they fully understand your products, development methodologies, test plans and release cadences.

Your curated teams of digital experts from Applause’s uTest community build and maintain domain knowledge of your products for continuity of testing. Solution Delivery Managers are involved from the beginning to ensure we are delivering the right testing strategy that utilizes the value of our community to the fullest extent. This, combined with a deep understanding of your products and existing SDLC, helps us create clear end-to-end testing plans that align with your specific needs. And, because of the flexibility and scalability of both our technology infrastructure and our uTest community, you can adjust the scope of testing at any point to better align with shifting demands and deadlines.
