CA Technologies 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 (Continuous Testing and API/Webservices Testing) and second highest score (End-to-End Testing). CA also scored 3.78 out of 5 in the Open-Source-Based Testing Acceleration Use Case.
“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 lifecycle,” said Jeff Scheaffer, GM, Continuous Delivery, CA Technologies. “We feel that Continuous Testing is critical to building a modern software factory to help organizations 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 behaviors as soon as they are injected. As the industry leader in Continuous Testing, CA Technologies is the only vendor that offers true end-to-end, Continuous Testing including functional, performance and security across the entire application lifecycle.
In the report, Gartner recommends that application leaders who are responsible for modernizing development, “Implement an open testing strategy and choose tools that offer support for open-source frameworks and APIs as well as cloud delivery in order to maximize available knowledge and flexibility.”
