CA Technologies has received the highest product scores for both the continuous testing and API/web service testing use cases in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Software Test Automation report.
Gartner’s research assessed 10 software test automation tools for five uses cases – two of which CA achieved the highest score, as well as the second highest score for end-to-end testing.
“To thrive in the application economy, companies need to delight their customers with an outstanding user experience, which is a direct result of DevOps adoption and the use of continuous testing across the software development life-cycle,” said Andrea Lodolo, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), CA Southern Africa.
“We feel that continuous testing is critical to building a modern software factory to help organisations deliver better apps faster, and in our view, Gartner’s valuation validates CA’s industry leadership in delivering end-to-end continuous testing solutions.”
Continuous testing goes beyond automation and encompasses every practice of testing, from planning to production, to uncover and fix unexpected behaviours as soon as they are injected.
In the report, Gartner recommends that application leaders who are responsible for modernising development, ‘implement an open testing strategy and choose tools that offer support for open-source frameworks and APIs as well as cloud delivery to maximise available knowledge and flexibility.’
“With the digital economy and smart apps becoming a mainstay, application engineering is going through a significant shift characterised by speed, user gravity and proximity to business,” added Arun Melkote, Global Head of Quality Engineering and Testing Services at Wipro.
“We feel that CA Technologies’ leadership in continuous testing, coupled with Wipro’s leadership in quality engineering services brings significant synergies to enable success for our customers in their continuous testing journey and their digital transformation.”
