Driven by the as-a-service model, the pace of technological change has significantly increased for those managing end-user technology. In order to keep up, organizations must keep a much tighter handle on their application estate and test it almost on a constant basis. If done manually, this is a very lengthy, costly, and frustrating process.
Juriba's new automated application testing solution, AppM Tester, provides automated smoke testing, functional testing, user acceptance testing (UAT), and application management capabilities that eliminate the pain and frustration caused by managing this IT change. Instead, teams can focus on delivering an even better end-user experience. Whether you are migrating to a new platform, upgrading an existing environment, or adopting new technology, with AppM Tester you can automatically test your application estate in a matter of minutes — delivering fast results by removing application bottlenecks, streamlining the process, and significantly reducing resources, resulting in immediate application management cost reduction of over 40%.
On average, enterprises will touch more than 1,000 applications during an IT Transformation or Win 10 / M365 servicing update. Done manually, testing just one application will typically take roughly 90 minutes or co-ordination, pre-staging, testing and sign off. For most organizations with an application estate of hundreds or thousands, this means a team of people over a number of months just to manage the process. With Juriba’s AppM Tester, you can test the same amount of applications in a tiny fraction of that time. By using our automated smoke testing solution, you can automatically perform exactly the same test in just 7-15 minutes on average. Because AppM Tester can manage multiple virtual machines simultaneously, the true acceleration happens by testing 24/7 using automation without user input — providing a total time saving of 97%!
The new Juriba AppM solution with its new automated smoke testing, functional testing, user acceptence testing (UAT), and application management capabilities is an important puzzle piece in managing Evergreen IT successfully. IT managers are, for example, able to queue in hundreds of applications for automatic testing over the weekend, knowing that on Monday they will have 100 percent coverage without manual intervention, which means they can immediately put the next steps into motion based on smart workflows and automation.

Together with its sister product, AppM Packager, AppM Tester is part of the AppM Platform. As part of the Juriba family, both products are fully integrated with Juriba's Workplace Automation platform, Dashworks. Teams can use AppM as a standalone Evergreen smoke testing solution, as part of the AppM Platform for end-to-end application packaging and testing automation, or as part of a complete end-to-end IT Transformation project or Evergreen IT management process using Juriba Dashworks.
