Keysight Technologies, Inc. and Sauce Labs Inc. have partnered to deliver cloud-based testing of enterprise applications on mobile devices, browsers, and secure desktops.
Ensuring application device compatibility is an issue for enterprises; it impacts ratings, adoption, and ultimately revenue. However, "do it yourself" testing across many devices is complex, time-consuming, and costly, requiring not just physical and virtual devices but also a software platform for managing and interacting with the devices and operating systems.
Keysight's Eggplant cloud-based test automation platform combined with the Sauce Labs real and virtual device clouds and software platform, delivers artificial intelligence (AI) driven automated testing of applications across thousands of devices, browsers, and OS combinations, providing comprehensive coverage, and significantly accelerating testing while helping customers to rapidly scale.
"One size doesn't fit all when testing web and mobile applications," said Gareth Smith, general manager, Software Test Automation at Keysight Technologies. "By joining forces with Sauce Labs, enterprise customers can quickly and intelligently automate the testing of digital journeys across every possible device, ensuring a consistent and positive user experience."
The alliance eliminates the burden on organizations to maintain a centralized test lab and continuously adjust the device mix. In addition, customers no longer need to manage remote access and user permissions to keep devices cool and charged. The Sauce Labs cloud enables access to and full control of thousands of devices, allowing enterprises to focus on testing applications rather than managing devices. Keysight's intelligent automation generates test cases and prioritizes areas that need additional testing. This visual approach enables customers to test human actions and ensure end-user interactions are intuitive.
"Every company is striving to build digital confidence while also eliminating any bottlenecks in testing," said John Kelly, chief strategy officer at Sauce Labs. "This partnership empowers software development and QA teams to ship faster with higher quality. Keysight's Eggplant cloud-based test automation platform, in conjunction with the Sauce Labs device clouds and DevOps Test Toolchain, empowers customers to add breadth, depth, and scale to their testing."
