This year’s report explores the increasingly critical role test automation tools play as organizations shift toward building multi-experience applications, as well as how 10 vendors compare to meet the needs of the complex testing scenarios these applications demand.

Digital Transformation Requires a Deep-Seated Transformation — Beyond Tools

According to Gartner, “Application leaders driving DevOps initiatives require effective test automation to succeed.”*

“Achieving optimized Continuous Testing isn’t as simple as selecting the ‘best’ test automation tool; it’s a journey that requires commitment to change,” explained Tricentis Founder and Chief Product Officer Wolfgang Platz in a press release. “At Tricentis, we’ve had the pleasure of guiding hundreds of top enterprises along this journey — in collaboration with many exceptional quality leaders. In our opinion, being recognized as a Leader in software testing is shared equally with our customers and partners. We feel that we would not have been recognized without their continued support and collaboration.”

Additional Recognitions for Tricentis

Tricentis was recognized in March as a 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Software Test Automation. Last year, Tricentis ranked highest for two use cases in the 2018 Gartner Critical Capabilities report for Software Test Automation: Enterprise End-to-End Testing (3.84/5) and Progressive Web Apps/Responsive Web/Native Apps (3.83/5) Use Cases.

Tricentis CEO Sandeep Johri credits these accomplishments to both product innovation and the transformation strategy Tricentis offers its more than 1600 global customers. “In a market that’s dominated by testing tools, our approach to customer success is focused on testing transformation,” Johri said. “The reason for Tricentis’ strong growth is that we partner with our customers to transform their testing process — versus just selling them point tools. These leading enterprises are now consistently delivering differentiating customer/user experiences through software while their less advanced competitors are living on borrowed time.”
