The demand for larger and more interconnected software systems is constantly increasing, but the ability of developers to satisfy it is not evolving accordingly. The most limiting factor is the software validation, which typically requires very costly and complex testing processes to ensure the software is free of errors and complies with requirements. The ElasTest project aims at offering a flexible open source testing platform for rapid and accurate end-to-end testing that can significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the testing process and the overall quality of modern applications, including web, mobile, real-time video communications, and Internet-of-Things.
The ElasTest cloud platform will be released as Free Open Source Software and has already started creating a Community of users and contributors who will help us in our endeavor for transforming ElasTest into a worldwide reference in the area of large software systems testing and guaranteeing the long term platform sustainability.

The CNR group, led by Antonia Bertolino (ISTI-CNR, Pisa), will
contribute to the project with two important missions: leading
the continuous research scouting in cloud testing and
coordinating the experimental validation. The quantitative
project objectives include reducing the time-to-market,
increasing the quality of the software product, reducing the
possibility of failures and improving the confidence and
satisfaction of both end users and developers.
