Holistic testing gives you early access to test the latest software and also the possibility to get in an engagement with the development team to understand, discuss, and enhance the technology and behavior of the platform.
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.
Who can participate?
Esri's customers, staff, partners, and international distributors can all request to participate in the Holistic Testing Program. Our mission is to test Esri software products from a user-workflow point of view.
What are the benefits?
By participating in holistic testing sessions, you will help ensure that the next release of Esri software meets the needs and workflows of the current GIS professional. Additionally, you will interact with software development teams on future software releases.
