Tricentis NeoLoad 9.0
Applications are the heart of today’s modern business and any slow performance or downtime experienced by end users could prove costly. The latest version of NeoLoad now includes RealBrowser, a major new capability that adds browser-based testing along with existing protocol coverage in a single solution. While demand on web apps is difficult to forecast, NeoLoad with RealBrowser enables easy to design and execute performance and scalability testing of modern, dynamic web applications to ensure client-side response time metrics meet SLAs while delivering exceptional experiences for end users. By having full visibility of back-end and front-end performance testing from a single solution, QA and development teams can deliver higher quality applications more quickly as user expectations for fast loading times continue to set the bar for better performance.
NeoLoad provides best-in-class performance testing capabilities to enable highly scalable business applications that simulates end user behavior under load for all types of performance testing scenarios, including APIs, microservices, client- and server-side technologies. It is the only product on the market that meets enterprise testing requirements and tests within both manual and automated approaches, with the fastest test design and test maintenance. In addition, NeoLoad 9.0 with RealBrowser is more resource efficient and cost effective compared to similar performance testing offerings.
NeoLoad 9.0 key features:
During the beta for NeoLoad 9.0, a performance engineer at a major North American retail company said, “I was able to easily script a very complex application in a much faster time than if I had been using the native protocol approach.”
Tricentis Test Management for Jira
In today’s digital world, organizations are under pressure to release quality software faster using Agile and DevOps workflows. To do so, development, operations, and testing teams must collaborate better, with as little friction as possible. Test Management for Jira is an end-to-end test management solution that streamlines development and testing cycles by helping the entire business quickly and easily manage testing from idea to production as one team inside the same tool–Jira. The solution delivers the performance, scalability, and intuitive UI teams need to collaborate in the same workflow so they can scale with speed and deliver releases with confidence, together.
Today, many teams use lightweight Jira plugins for test management, but most plugins struggle to scale. The plugins slow down the entire Jira instance, resulting in poor usability as test projects and objects multiply. Test Management for Jira closes the performance and scalability gaps presented by other Jira plugin test management solutions, and adds an intuitive, friendly UI to keep QA and developers collaborating closely throughout the software development cycle.
Test Management for Jira key features:
“Tricentis Test Management for Jira has a great user interface, directly inside Jira, so QA teams can literally stay on the same page with development. The product makes it easy to get started, stay organized, and focus on testing,” said Amita Zutshi, test engineer, Revelation Software. “It’s a hands-on tool to get the capabilities of test management and execution delivered, at ease.”

Tricentis Test Automation for Salesforce
The use of low code has recently risen in popularity due in part to increasing pressure on IT to not only deliver value to businesses but also to their end users. According to Gartner Inc., the use of low-code and no-code technologies will nearly triple by 2025, up from less than 25% in 2020.
Test Automation for Salesforce is a comprehensive test automation solution that enables Salesforce admins, developers, and QA teams to test low-code applications built on Salesforce earlier and more frequently, resulting in faster releases, accelerated development, and expanded Salesforce testing coverage. Benefits include enhanced quality of releases and upgrades, improved accelerated development cadence, and increased ROI.
Automated Salesforce testing is critical for companies that have complex orgs, ambitious development plans, and Customer 360 goals. Salesforce can span all facets of a business, meaning its reliability is vital. Admins and developers often only test Salesforce when it breaks or when adding a new feature. This ad hoc approach to testing may leave Salesforce environments susceptible to the unforeseen challenges that arise from Salesforce’s frequent release cycles and upgrades. Manual, random testing can no longer keep up with the complexity of Salesforce.
Test Automation for Salesforce addresses this challenge head on by being easy to use. Test cases are created quickly through its innovative pre-built steps, which makes test case creation simple and fast, especially when compared to traditional script-based testing frameworks like Selenium. The problematic nature of building reliable test cases in the Salesforce Lightning environment is also resolved by automatically locking in dynamic elements to future-proof test cases. Salesforce professionals of all skill levels can contribute to building a test library that provides end-to-end coverage, alerting the business of bugs before it impacts essential processes.
Test Automation for Salesforce key features:
During the beta for Test Automation for Salesforce, Rolando Francisco Jr., functional test specialist at Idea Science said, “It’s really easy to use, especially compared to other solutions. It’s remarkable.”
“IDC research sees dramatically increased velocity for software deployments as part of Digital Innovation and DevOps initiatives, demanding increased speed for continuous testing and software quality automation. And as the economy presses software development teams to do more with less, constrained testing processes and staff are at risk of slowing down and negatively impacting business-critical outcomes. Growing companies cannot afford for this to happen and must focus on automated software quality solutions that can enable them to remain fast, efficient, and agile despite economic volatility,” said Melinda Ballou, Research Director of Agile ALM, IDC. “The expansion of product portfolios like Tricentis can help to do that while reducing costs from manual approaches, enabling QA and dev teams to be more collaborative, deliver higher quality user experiences faster, and test earlier and more frequently. These capabilities can help companies deliver quality software more quickly to differentiate themselves now and moving forward.”
