What is IBM IGNITE Quality and Test?

IBM IGNITE helps you move from defect detection to prevention. This offering optimizes the number of tests required, translates and compares scripts to similar tests, then applies AI to test  faster and more efficiently. You can improve app quality, get to market faster and save money.

Why testing is not enough

Testing only finds what’s wrong. And more staff performing more tests doesn't always improve speed or quality. Adding insights from strategy, development and quality engineering — along with AI — can help you produce better apps.

  • Adopt a relentless enterprise-wide focus on quality applications
  • Maximize and refine agile methodologies and DevOps activities
  • Amplify error prevention efforts using artificial intelligence 

How we ensure quality

You need to get increasingly complicated applications to market faster, with fewer defects and at lower cost. IBM IGNITE Quality and Test delivers — at up to 40% lower cost* — with a simple framework, delivered directly to you through an intuitive interface.

Optimize

Optimized test design helps identify the exact right number and type of tests, reducing the number of tests by up to 88% while still maintaining 100% coverage*.

Automate

Automating your testing process can reduce up to 99% of defects, and help reduce time-to-market by up to 30%*.

Analyze

Using AI to analyze your apps can identify patterns of defects and prevent them in the future.
