Docker announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to simplify the lives of developers by allowing them to focus on application development, streamlining the process of deploying and managing containers in AWS from their local development environment.
Perforce Software acquired TestCraft Technologies, Ltd., provider of an AI-driven codeless Selenium testing solution that allows teams to automate tests without coding, reducing test maintenance with AI-based technology.
The acquisition provides a strong, additional offering to Perforce’s testing portfolio, and strengthens the company’s position in a fast-growing automated testing market. TestCraft represents the company’s ninth acquisition since 2016.
The TestCraft platform allows less technical team members to create and execute web application tests, enabling development teams to increase innovation and quality at a faster development pace.
One of TestCraft’s competitive advantages is how it leverages AI (artificial intelligence) technology to automatically overcome changes in a web application, increasing productivity by minimizing test maintenance time.
“Enterprises continue to need more automation in order to deliver products faster and with higher quality,” said Mark Ties, Perforce CEO. “TestCraft allows Perforce to offer the next generation of automated testing capabilities to our customers.”
“In recent years, codeless testing has become a top priority for QA teams as they look to expedite test creation and maximize testing reliability. TestCraft delivers on this promise by giving our customers time back to focus on product development and innovation,” said Dror Todress, TestCraft CEO. “We are thrilled to join the Perforce team and are confident that the increased resources this partnership provides will allow us to capitalize on the continuous testing market opportunity.”
