Creating SaaS 3.0 with Chinese Characteristics, Testin Allows Customers to Determine the Product Form


SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For a long time, there was such a bitter joke on the topic of SaaS enterprise-class service, "You do not need to worry about falling behind in doing company business services, because every year is the 'first year' anyway". There has also been a saying, "The enterprise market is an industry that could fail the tuyere theory (Lei Jun's theory), even BAT and old software giants met problems in this area one after another." And everyone knows that Chinese entrepreneurs are very good at saving and making money, but they are not that good at spending money. Conquering such a shrewd group of people is like preparing for a long march. It is a very long-term work.

Entering the second decade of the 21st century, Testin found that the gloomy SaaS market in the past suddenly begun to blow spring breeze. Synergy and symbiotic have become a wind direction, and even the giants were in complement with each other on the short board. "Romance between Lu Han and Guan Xiaotong" made the microblog offline, and Sina borrowed server resources from Ali cloud; far from the opposite side of the Earth, Google and Facebook handed over their important test works to China's Testin.

The maturity of technology, of course, is a necessary factor for growth of SaaS, but what actually makes this industry lively are these three forces of industry power:

  • Innovation of startups
  • Awareness of crisis traditional enterprises
  • Desire of monopoly of mature Internet companies

The most important thing is that the mobile Internet has changed the entire business competition environment, allowing SaaS to change from aid to infrastructure. And whether it is the Docker and cloud computing platform (characterizing in development constructions, expanding services) or the cloud test platform (objecting in bug fixes, acceptance test), they are all constantly realizing the rebirth of the SaaS format after fire in the major changes.

SaaS services are entering the 3.0 era of deepening reform

Primary exploration of SaaS 1.0 era (the first 10 years of the 21st century):
Includes Kingdee, UF and other enterprise software giants' on-line SaaS products, as well as new forces like Ali software. This stage emphasizes more on the point that service provider itself supports the coverage of all application content and functionality. The process is closed and single. The orientation of product in this era is to meet the basic needs of enterprise's OA management.

Rapid development of SaaS 2.0 era (the rise of the mobile Internet tide to 2017):
This period is the industry's rapid growth period. In 2016, China SaaS market surged by 38%. Large and all inclusive, integration became the main characteristic of SaaS development. 2.0 era not only requires the provision of flexible customization, real-time deployment, rapid integration of SaaS application platform by software application service operators, but also requires the provision of web-based application customization, development, deployment of tools to achieve the no programming's ability of applying, stability, and deployment. The design-oriented product also changed from meeting the OA office management needs into meeting individal needs of different enterprises gradually.

Deepening reform SaaS 3.0 era (from 2017 onwards):
SaaS's Software-as-a-Service concept was reconstructed. The new SaaS is considered as Security + AI + API + Symbiosis, that is, collection of concept, security, intelligence, connectivity and symbiotic. The essence behind it is that SaaS begun to think about more profound business problems beyond big and full. Based on further and deeper needs of enterprise development, the product needs also evolved and were discussed from two dimensions at the same time, namely the commercial stage and the client property. The project management cooperation is deepened, meanwhile, the situational symbiosis mode is becoming more humanized. The product-orientation at this time is gradually deepened from meeting the individual user needs to creating a collaborative, symbiotic win-win concept.

SaaS 3.0 era, Testin's four "Chinese-style" highlights


In the SaaS 3.0 era, Testin has evolved from dark horse to a real unicorn, and now has grown into the pioneer and a leader in cloud test industry. Co-founder of Testin once said: "Let Testin always go beyond the developers' needs." This sentence can be fully confirmed in the following four product highlights of Testin SaaS 3.0. It also reflects the Chinese characteristics of the service under the new era of SaaS:

1. The on-cloud reorganization of the whole industry chain of mobile - cloud test

From point of view of the industry, the popularity of cloud computing will lead to a comprehensive reorganization and reshuffle of the IT industry. Cloud test is a creature of the cloud computing era. Also, Testin has originated from China. Test is a time-consuming and labor-intensive high-marginal cost work. In order to solve this management pain point, Testin moved the test work to the cloud platform, through the automated AI + artificial way, greatly liberating enterprises' unnecessary manpower costs and hardware costs and improving the quality of application and efficiency of management.

2. Improving management efficiency while mobilizing human dividends - public test

The so-called "public test" is the test industry's "DiDi" (a famous taxi business in China), it can effectively connect the test demand side and professional testing experts, so it can let experts on the platform accept the test task, do the testing and evaluation in the real network environment according to the test requirements. As with DiDi, the public test mobilizes idle resources, reorganizes the customers' assets and value chain. And through weakening proprietary rights, emphasizing usage rights, it increased the value of production and reduced the costs. Testers can get high rewards while the demand side can save costs and improve widths and abilities of tests. This mode of mobilizing the power of the masses and social resource enterprise users is the "Chinese mode", the unique mode in the world.

3. Situational product forms - release test

Testin release test clarifies the value of an app test itself and the product concept of differentiated needs of customers for the first time. Its biggest advantage is that it changes the status quo of enterprises' app tests, which is without standard, logic, emphasis, or quantization. It enables the quality check of the pre-release scientific and standardized test. Performing app test according to Testin release test services, it can not only ensure that the app is released on time, stable and without hidden dangers, but also eliminate developers' previous malicious business attitudes towards users in the product iteration. The release test is created for solving the last thing before an app is released. It saves the developers' complicated testing processes before an app is available online.

4. Collaborative Project Management - SaaS 3.0 Platform

During different phases of product test by developers, Testin can provide the according service, synchronize the progress and accompany enterprises through each stage of the product test. Focusing on a project, Testin coordinates the different needs of collaborative test team within different stages, allocates the resources and modifies the bug flows more conveniently. Briefly, Testin actually accomplishes the goal of making enterprises' on-the-ground-level employees feel pleased, and understands more about the business nature of enterprises' users.

Testin SaaS 3.0 with Chinese characteristics

From the "four highlights" above, it is possible to summarize that, Testin SaaS 3.0 pays more attention  to high efficiency, comprehensiveness, humanity and synergy of product value. From standardization to personalization, from tooling to situational, the requirements of corporate internal management collaboration are deepened and became more intense, which gave birth to a number of new representative platforms, for example, testin SaaS 3.0. This product evolution is driven by  situational needs of enterprises and will continue to go deeper in big strides.
