Why Autify is participating in the AWS Activate Program as a partner
Many startups run their business focusing on how they can continue to deliver value to their customers quickly. However, prioritizing development speed often means that quality control gets neglected.
Neglected quality control turns into technical debt in the medium to long term, with interest increasing day by day. Once startups reach a certain phase, they end up having to pay a significant cost to pay back the technical debt, causing the development speed to temporarily slow down and may require more human resources than expected. We decided to participate in AWS Activate as a partner because in the hopes that startups will use Autify to keep their technical debt low and create a system that doesn’t slow down development speed as the product and business matures.
While an increasing number of companies in the US, Japan, and Singapore are implementing Autify, we hope to take the lead in helping startups around the world so that they can develop and expand their products successfully.
Startups on a Seed Round working towards Product Market Fit (PMF), and Series A startups are eligible.
What is AWS Activate?
AWS Activate is a program that gives startups access to the resources they need to get started with AWS for free. Startups receive AWS credits, technical support, and more.
About Autify, the software test automation platform
Autify has saved 250,000 hours (28.5 years) worth of manual testing
Since launching in October 2019, many development teams have used Autify to automate web service and application testing. In less than two years, Autify has run over a million automated tests. Assuming that one person spends 15 minutes running one test, we estimate that Autify has saved over 10,000 days in total. That is the amount of time that has been freed up for other activities.
This track record proves Autify can achieve its vision of freeing up time and “empower the creativity of people around the world with the power of technology,” as well as the reliability of the platform itself.

The key to business growth in rapidly changing market environments is to accelerate the software release cycle without compromising quality. However, teams cannot release their web apps quickly without test automation. App release cycles have a direct impact on the business’ strength. Autify allows businesses to release faster while ensuring quality.
