What is StormTest

Accenture StormTest is a video service test automation platform. It addresses the complexity inherent in modern video software delivery, by enabling test to scale intelligently, simultaneously supporting the validation of multiple builds and releases across platforms. StormTest is part of Accenture Digital Video's portfolio of open, scaleable platforms.

Accenture Digital Video worked closely with RDK Management LLC to establish a Code Management Facility capable of securing, coordinating and managing the official code base. The use of the elastic compute capacity of the cloud was an important component enabling the RDK codebase to be compiled cost-effectively.

Efficient and Agile

It enables Video Engineering and Operations to shift efficiently to agile, by integrating automated tests into development pipelines and build delivery processes.

Removes Testing bottlenecks

It removes testing bottlenecks accelerating the mean time to detect and replicate errors.

provides visibility of quality

It provides visibility into the quality of software releases, including performance of vendor provided builds, against consistent and objective data-driven quality benchmarks.

“With Accenture Digital Video we have deployed a continuous integration process that accelerates release frequency and improves code quality.”
