KaSYS Canada developed ParseIT software, providing a simple and effective way to analyze transactional messages from raw data and logs in various industries, such as payments, transportation (e-tickets), identification (eID) and the medical sector. The objective was to provide a simple tool to help the tester validate the format of a transaction, visualize quickly and easily the content of messages and verify that the transactions comply with the rules of the system.
ParseIT represents a new paradigm in testing solutions for transactional systems. The innovation lies in the focus placed on the user. The software enhances users' intelligence, in contrast to simulators, more costly and complicated, performing as robots. Therefore, ParseIT empowers the tester, while increasing manual test efficiency. Jean-Christophe Derre, General Manager, defines KaSYS Canada's core business in this manner: "Testers are at the center of our activities. We develop software, keeping users in mind so as to ensure that the new product will meet the demands of the testers, offer a great value to them, and ultimately make their lives easier."
Dubbed "Swiss-army-knife software" for its usefulness and flexibility, ParseIT is a multifunctional tool, adaptable to particular needs. The other benefits of ParseIT are its simplicity, low-cost, easy configuration, as well as non-intrusion into the system. Moreover, the intuitive interface provides quick access to the fields of each message, their value, description and validation. In a constant effort to meet the needs and requirements of the market, KaSYS Canada regularly updates its software. Recently, the company launched ParseIT 2011, supporting XML, format largely used for exchanging information over the internet. In conclusion, whilst costing less money, time and effort than similar software, ParseIT is a powerful tool in the hands of test analysts to fulfill transactional quality assurance.
