The latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Test Automation was just released. Tricentis has been recognized as a Leader in software test automation for the third consecutive year. This year, Tricentis is positioned furthest of all vendors in Completeness of Vision for software test automation.
At Tricentis, we’re extremely proud of this recognition. We believe that the breadth and depth of innovation featured across our Continuous Testing platform helped place us in the Leaders Quadrant.
“Gartner’s research provides an objective benchmark of all test automation solutions,” explained Tricentis CPO, Dr. Gerd Weishaar. “It is based on industry surveys, customer inquiries, product evaluations, and more. We are extremely honored to be recognized as a Leader— and be positioned furthest of all vendors in Completeness of Vision—in this important piece of industry research. I encourage you to read the complete report to learn about all of Gartner’s findings.”
As our customers know, Tricentis’ vision for software test automation is not the traditional one. But, as our customers have witnessed firsthand, it is an effective one. We’ve helped hundreds of leading enterprises transition from predominantly manual testing processes that delayed releases to automated testing processes that provide fast, continuous quality feedback at the speed of DevOps. These organizations have transformed their processes to achieve, on average, 90% or greater test automation rates—achieving higher risk coverage with significantly less testing time and effort.
Tricentis: Reinventing Test Automation
What’s so different with Tricentis’ approach? From the start, we’ve been focused on identifying and removing the barriers to effective test automation—even if it means a radical departure from traditional testing methods and legacy testing tools. These barriers include:
- Brittle scripts that require technical expertise to create and constant maintenance to sustain
- Tools that can’t cover all the technologies and application layers involved in a modern business transaction
- The paradox of having to test increasingly complex transactions within ever-shrinking test windows
We’ve seen how this impacts software testers, and we’ve made it our mission to eliminate these hassles so testers can deliver the rapid, prioritized feedback required for effective modern software delivery processes.
Here’s a quick look at some of the core Tricentis innovations that enable our customers to transform testing for Agile and DevOps.
Model-Based Test Automation
Scripted tests are difficult to create and maintain. With our scriptless model-based test automation, testers focus on defining the test logic in a business-readable interface—and the same test definitions can be reused across different technologies and testing types (e.g., functional + load).[/vc_column_text][image_with_animation image_url=”28066″ alignment=”” animation=”Fade In” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][vc_column_text]An advanced automation model is built by simply scanning the application, and it eliminates false positives through innovations such as “self-healing” technologies. Moreover, since the automation model is maintained separately from the test case logic, tests are simple to update as the application evolves. Even if hundreds or thousands of tests are impacted, a single update is all that’s needed.
Risk-Based Test Case Design
On average, over 50% of tests are redundant and do not add value to the test suite. Our test case design technology helps you focus your limited testing time on the smallest set of tests that deliver the greatest risk coverage.
All test failures are not created equal. Our risk-based analytics provide instant insight into whether a test failure indicates a true show-stopper.
Continuous Testing Platform
Beyond test automation, Tricentis enables continuous testing with a comprehensive Continuous Testing platform that:
- Helps the entire cross-functional team collaborate to quickly expose critical defects
- Ensures that appropriate test data is always available to the automated tests
- Simulates the behavior of dependent systems that are unavailable or unstable during test execution
- Integrates testing directly into CI/CD pipelines and “best of breed” DevOps ecosystems
Finally, to ensure that leading enterprises can take advantage of these testing innovations—no matter how diverse and how specialized the technologies involved in their critical transactions—we support them across an industry-leading span of 140+ technologies.
