Get involved in Esri's software testing


The Holistic Testing Program engages with various users early on in the development process to test new and upcoming Esri software releases using real-world workflows and datasets. By implementing these workflows, software issues are identified early and resolved prior to releasing a final product.

How does it work?

Testing sessions are planned based on changes in the functional areas of our Esri software. The holistic testing team collaborates with a development team to schedule software testing.

When do sessions occur?

Test sessions occur on a weekly basis throughout the year and are scheduled around software development cycles. Sessions are designed to ensure that the software's final functionality is ready for release and that it is free of critical technical issues.
