Applitools, developer of cloud-based automated visual testing solution Applitools Eyes, announces today that Gartner Inc., the world's leading IT research and advisory company, recognizes Applitools in its "Cool Vendors in Application Development, 2015" Report, published April 17, 2015.
Applitools was recognized as a "Cool Vendor" for Applitools Eyes - an automated visual testing solution, that automatically and instantly detects all UI bugs, validates cross-browser and cross-device interoperability, and tests for visual & functional regressions in any web, mobile or desktop app.
By automating visual & functional testing processes (including content, layout and appearance) - which previously could only be tested manually - Applitools Eyes helps companies dramatically shorten QA time, as well as avoid more software bugs than ever before. In addition to substantially increasing coverage & accuracy, Applitools Eyes also substantially reduces maintenance efforts, due to its unique ability to automatically propagate changes across execution environments.
Applitools Eyes seamlessly integrates with any major test automation framework, such as: Selenium, HP QTP/UFT, Appium, MS CodedUI, Protractor and more, and augments any device/browser testing framework - either cloud-based or emulators - such as: Sauce Labs, Perfecto Mobile, HP Mobile Center, and BrowserStack, just to name a few.
"We are honoured to be named a 'Cool Vendor in Application Development' by Gartner. In addition to our long list of satisfied customers, we feel this undoubtedly offers the strongest market validation to our automated visual testing solutions," said Gil Sever, CEO and Co-founder of Applitools. "Competition requires companies to release superior products faster, while keeping QA expenses & overhead at bay; this is why companies realize they must improve Continuous Deployment processes, making them faster, more robust and fully automated. As this reality continues to evolve, Applitools is uniquely positioned to answer those rapidly growing needs, with our innovative products and solutions."
