Company summary:

Our mission at BStriker is to identify all defects of software applications. BStriker is positioned as an innovative, market disruptive software technology company with the most powerful and complete solution to identify allsoftware defects instantly, this independently for all technologies, platforms and languages.
BStriker’s solutions brings quality assurance within software companies to the next level. Fundamentally and effectively improving the transparency, output and cost structure within their software development and testing departments. BStriker’s solutions are for everyone and therefore delivers SaaS as well as on-premise.

BStriker has its HQ in Holland and a development office in Argentina.

The first companies that showed interest and bought our solution recognised the need to improve and to solve the issues at hand. The first customer will extend the use within their organisation since it resolved more issues than at first recognised.

The problem

Striking the balance between the right level of testing and the crucial speed to market is an impossible equation. Recent survey revealed that 44% of users would immediately delete a faulty app and 96% writes a bad review. Undetected bugs can be destructive for a company’s reputation or “only” extremely costly. Automotive being in the news with “killer software” and paying fines makes the software more expensive than the best software ever written that of the Space Shuttle. The current products are: too expensive, too complex, lacks transparency, no traceability, limited solutions, no integration or support. In addition testing is too often performed by non testers.

The solution

BStriker’s easy to use subscription based software solutions are fed by the “Brain” and integrate with and improve the current available partial solutions independent of the SDLC implemented. It offers a centralised control and execution center for your software development and automated and manual testing efforts. The available and growing knowledge from the Brain (International testing standards, Testing techniques, methodologies and test scripts) will teach the users to execute software testing with a minimum effort professionally and faster, empowering the organisation. The next step is crowd-testing, connected to the ALTM and the Brain giving it a competitive advantage. Testing by real people with real devices in real conditions. Releasing software with more confidence because of the real time metrics and full transparency.

The market

According to the Gartner and Forrester the market size is approximately 200B. The current market leaders did not innovate their products and are loosing to the smaller innovative companies with the latest techniques. Many deliver a nice product in a niche market and not a complete solution.

On average 50% of the development resources are absorb by testing for quality conscious companies. BStriker will, over time, cut the cost with 70% and results are an instant saving 30% in development time (ISTQB standard). The market will evolve the coming years to more automation and a quality conscious environment, BStriker offers a market disruptive revolution.
