Tricentis Founder Wolfgang Platz Releases Book, Enterprise Continuous Testing
Tricentis announced the publication of Enterprise Continuous Testing: Transforming Testing for Agile and DevOps, written by Tricentis Founder Wolfgang Platz and Cynthia Dunlop. This book is targeted to senior quality managers and business executives who need to achieve the optimal balance between speed and quality when delivering the software that drives the modern business. It provides a roadmap for how to accelerate delivery with high confidence and low business risk.
“Even with the most extreme automation, the ‘test everything’ approach is not feasible…but actually, it’s not necessary or even desirable,” explained Wolfgang Platz. “If you rethink your approach to testing, you can get a thorough assessment of a release candidate’s business risk with much less testing than you’re probably performing today.”
Enterprise Continuous Testing: Transforming Testing for Agile and DevOps introduces a Continuous Testing strategy that helps enterprises transform testing to meet the needs of fast-paced Agile and DevOps initiatives. Software testing has traditionally been the enemy of speed and innovation—a slow, costly process that delays releases while delivering questionable business value. This new strategy helps organizations test smarter, so testing provides rapid insight into what matters most to the business.
All Profits to Benefit Specialisterne Austria, a Non-Profit Committed to Inclusion through Neurodiversity
Tricentis is donating all proceeds from Enterprise Continuous Testing to Specialisterne Austria, a non-profit committed to identifying, qualifying, and enabling the employability of talent in the autism spectrum. Under the umbrella of the globally-active Specialisterne Foundation, they partner with corporations, training, and educational institutions to unlock the full potential of neurodiversity for innovation and business excellence.
People with an autism spectrum condition are often great software testers because of their structured and analytical approach, detail-orientation, and perseverance. They quickly identify patterns and tend to find aberrations and mistakes that others miss. Yet, despite these strengths, between 60-80% of adults with autism are unemployed. Specialisterne has made it their mission to change that. Tricentis has been partnering with Specialisterne Austria since 2018 to provide state-of-the-art Software Tester Training for these talented individuals who are otherwise easily overlooked.
“The exceptional involvement of Wolfgang Platz and his team allows our candidates to acquire sought-after testing skills that build on their individual strengths and meet market needs,” explained Markus Kalbhenn, Member of the Managing Board of Specialisterne Austria. “The quality of this training has been instrumental to the incredible success of this program. We are very honored to have Tricentis as our partner and to see this joint commitment strengthened yet again.”

Prosperity Capital Management Provides Update to Petropavlovsk Shareholders5.8.2020 10:00:00 EEST | Press release
Prosperity Capital Management (“Prosperity”), a leading Russia-focused asset manager that controls approximately 20 per cent of the outstanding share capital of Petropavlovsk PLC (“the Company”), today updated Petropavlovsk shareholders on its efforts to reinstate an independent Board of Directors ahead of the Company’s Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) to be held on 10 August. Prosperity has been engaging extensively with fellow Petropavlovsk shareholders – both large institutional shareholders and individual shareholders – as well as independent proxy advisory firms such as ISS and Glass Lewis. Support for Prosperity’s approach and its director nominees has been near unanimous. Prosperity believes that if all minority shareholders who are not affiliated with Everest Alliance (“Everest”) and JSC Uzhuralzoloto Group of Companies (“UGC”) make their voices heard, it should be manifestly evident once the votes are counted that support for the Everest-UGC position is almost nil.
