Pactflow features on Thoughtworks' Technology Radar 2021

We're honoured to be highlighted in Thoughtworks' Technology Radar 2021 for helping developers address the challenges of continuous testing complex distributed systems.

Update at 30 March 2022: the team over at Thoughtworks are now recommending Pactflow for trial:

We've used Pact for contract testing long enough to see some of the complexity that comes with scale. Some of our teams have successfully used Pactflow to reduce that friction. Pactflow runs both as software as a service and as an on-prem deployment with the same features as the SaaS offering, and it adds improved usability, security and auditing on top of the open-source Pact Broker offering. We've been pleased with our use so far and are happy to see continued effort to remove some of the overhead of managing contract testing at scale.  

The initial addition of Pactflow to the 2021 report, recommended to assess. The report, published in October, shouts out contract testing with Pactflow:

We've seen some teams invest significant effort in hand-crafting solutions to this problem and think it's worth assessing whether Pactflow can look after this for you.

You can check out our entry and, of course, the full radar here.

The Open Source Pact framework for contract testing was first featured on the Radar way back in 2016, so it humbling to be there again but this time, for our managed solution.

What our co-founders, Matt Fellows, Beth Skurrie and Ron Holshausen have to share:

The annual Thoughtworks Tech Radar is a well trusted report used by engineering teams, globally, to validation technologies and systems. We are really pleased to be recognised, especially as my fellow co-founders Ron and Beth — who were integral in the early days, open sourcing the project and inventing the Pact Broker — were recognised back in 2016.

Read about why we love open source.


Keen to see what the fuss is about? You can use Pactflow's hosted platform which takes care of hosting, related maintenance, security, team management and more.

Our free Starter Plan is a great way to kick-start a rapid proof of concept.
