Testhouse SaaS Offerings:

IT executives continue to wrestle with the conflicting demands of ever increasing requirements, performance and availability versus tough budgetary realism. If financial restraints or perhaps a straightforward short term requirement dictate that outright purchasing of licenses is either impractical and undesirable we strongly recommend SaaS from HP as a comprehensive and cost-effective alternative.

Testhouse, a preferred Business Partner of HP, is pleased to offer a fully managed, customer specific, bespoke solution which includes many of the most sophisticated tools available.

These include:

Advantages of using HP SaaS:

  • Reduce environment and operational costs
  • Optimise IT Resources
  • On-site expert consultancy with remote access to HP’s best of breed SaaS
  • Guarantee robust fixed term delivery with 99.9% availability

If you are interested in discussing what we believe is proving to be a popular SME option in respect of IT QA or any aspect of Test Management, Performance Testing or Application Security Testing, please contact our dedicated HP Software team.   Our consultancy and training services can be tailored to your specific requirements to complement the HP SaaS.

HP SaaS

SaaS is SkyRocketing!

  • Double - SaaS forecast CAGR in 2015 is more than double that of on-premises SW. (Gartner)
  • By 2014, 34% of new business software purchases will be consumed by SaaS (IDC 2011)
  • 33% - CAGR for 2011-2015 ASQ on SaaS Market (IDC 2012)
  • x6 On-premises software spending is expected to be only about six times greater by 2015. (Gartner)

The dynamic of the environment in which these applications are being modernised has also grown exponentially more complex: globally distributed teams, evolving methodologies, and cutting-edge delivery mechanisms aim to reduce costs, increase innovation, and optimise quality – but bring with them huge challenges. However, the Software as a Service (SaaS) model reduces these barriers to entry by leveraging the business benefits of the cloud to enable application lifecycle management (ALM) teams to focus on their core competencies.

HP SaaS has been providing solutions in a SaaS model for over a decade. These years of experience enable HP to provide enterprise businesses with flexible packaged offerings: Shared, Dedicated, or Advanced services.
