Press release: Management-buy-Out der QIQ QCENTRIS Intelligent Quality AG

ZURICH – November 4th, 2016: 5 years since its founding, the three founding partners of QCENTRIS, Reto Züst, Sabrina Schönhart and Peter Weber bought the remaining shares of Tricentis on September 30th, 2016; thus choosing the path to complete independence.

The QIQ QCENTRIS Intelligent Quality AG (QENTRIS) was founded in September of 2011 by Reto Züst, Sabrina Schönhart, Peter Weber and Tricentis. While Tricentis has specialized in testing Agile and DevOps environments using Tosca Testsuite, QCENTRIS offers methodically-supported and intelligent test approaches in the software development business to ensure value-oriented, efficient and effective testing.

In a market that is growing at only 5-8%, QCENTRIS has grown from 14 to more than 180 consultants in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Egypt within the past five years. Reto Züst, Chairman of the Board of Directors said, “The next step is the logical development of two very successful companies – while Tricentis will continue to expand the market for test tools with Tosca, QCENTRIS will focus exclusively on professional services in German-speaking Europe as well as in the Arab world. Both companies are now concentrating more on their core business, which is to be further expanded.”

Tricentis and QCENTRIS will continue to cooperate extensively and will remain a Platinum service implementation partner of Tricentis.

The Board of Directors has been newly appointed since the management buy-out and consists of Reto Züst (Chairman of the Board of Directors), Sabrina Schönhart and Peter Weber.

Experience Report: Test Data Management

Normally, for existing IT systems which are already in productive use you can access after a while on a representative dataset. Such data sets providing an added value for the quality assurance of software development in future releases of these IT systems, because it requires often "only" an (possibly legally required) anonymization for using these data sets for software tests. But how to proceed with the generation of test data if existing applications are getting old and should be replaced by new applications which use other database architectures? An Experience Report.
