SAN MATEO, Calif., June 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Applitools, a provider of AI Powered end-to-end Visual Testing and Monitoring, today announced new research and recognition that underscores the need for continuous quality in the age of digital transformation.
According to the 2019 State of Automated Visual Testing Report, today's typical "Digitally Transformed" company now boasts 28 unique web and mobile applications, each with 98 pages or screens per app, viewable in five different screen sizes, and read in six different human languages. This amounts to about 90,000 page and screen variations accessible every day by customers where visual bugs are common and cost the typical R&D team between $1.75M and $6.9M annually to fix.
Applitools was included in the May 2019 Gartner report Innovation Insight for AI-Augmented Development. According to the Gartner report, "today's statistical techniques are inadequate for optimizing testing, especially when changes to applications are frequent and where large software assets already exist that use a wide variety of microservices. Development and quality assurance (QA) in organizations cannot keep pace with the rate of innovation needed, due to: a heavy reliance on manual testing, skills gaps, insufficient resources, and an inability to scale technologies and processes. AI and ML are particularly suited to support the complex test automation required for back-end services within a mesh app and service architecture."*

"Apps, websites and smart devices have proliferated to the point where any attempt by humans to manage visual quality with the necessary testing coverage is impossible," said Gil Sever, CEO of Applitools. "The number of screens and pages are only expected to increase as well as the expectations of faster release cycles. If the desired outcome for businesses is to achieve a high level of continuous quality, the need for AI-augmented development and testing technology, as well as training for new skillsets, will address those challenges head-on."
