What is step ?
step is a test automation platform designed to achieve unprecedented efficiency in an industrial context. The main benefit of adopting step is a dramatic reduction of all costs incurred by traditional in-house testing.
Based on its unique keyword-driven philosophy and collaborative web-based test management system, step allows you to unify test practices across teams and streamline each part of your testing pipeline.
In addition, step ships with a distributed execution platform for massively concurrent testing and a flurry of integration plugins to cover every possible technical environment and test scenario.
How does it fit with existing tools?
While step showcases a very generic and extensible architecture, it does not aim to replace your continuous integration server or bug tracker.
As a matter of fact, plug-and-play integration is at the core of our philosophy and most of these plugins are already available out-of-the-box.
Not only can you connect step with third-party test case repositories, bug trackers and CI servers but you can also integrate with any datastore, simulation engine, scripting environment and push results or performance data to external warehouses.
