Zephyr is committed to transforming the test management environment – a place where QA professionals spend the majority of their day – into the ultimate dashboard of quality intelligence and testing performance, by giving everyone from top level executives to in-the-lab testing professionals the ability to see every activity on the goal of developing higher quality software. Known for offering the best integrations to Atlassian’s JIRA, Zephyr’s solutions are used by hundreds of companies with globally distributed teams. By replacing legacy applications and/or combinations of open source tools and spreadsheets, these companies experience dramatic cost savings and gain more time for testing.
Receiving the honor as one of the 2012 SD Times 100 winners is testimony to Zephyr’s technology and success in helping companies manage complex testing processes. Dell, Oracle, eBay, Equifax, Sony, Jive, Fiserv, Barnes & Noble, NCR and Orion Health are just a few notable names from a list of over 600 customers using Zephyr products. “Everything we do is laser-focused on helping project teams communicate, make decisions and measure software quality,” said Samir Shah, CEO for Zephyr. “We are grateful to be recognized on the SD Times 100 for our thought leadership and technology in Quality Assurance.”
Alan Zeichick, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of BZ Media’s SD Times, said, “The software development industry becomes more competitive every year. The all-out horse race this year proved that the best companies learn how to thrive even in challenging economic times, while those that don’t become also-rans. When calling the winners of the 2012 SD Times 100, the editors carefully considered each organization’s products and services, industry thought leadership, and reputation with development teams and enterprise development managers. Thanks to innovative, customer-focused companies like Zephyr, software developers hold a winning ticket.”
