eggPlant Integrates With qTest to Combine Leading Test Automation and Test Case Management Solutions
TestPlant, the maker of the eggPlant range of software quality tools, today announced a technology partnership with software test management company, QASymphony. The partnership will see TestPlant's flagship test automation tool, eggPlant Functional, integrated with QASymphony's qTest platform, the leading tool for test case management in Agile environments.
eggPlant Functional helps companies test their applications better, faster, and with less effort by automating the execution of functional testing. qTest transforms the test case management process, helping software teams work faster and more efficiently. The integration ensures that users can now seamlessly execute, monitor, and analyze the results of eggPlant automated tests from within the qTest platform.
"We believe enterprises will view our integrated solution as the most comprehensive and valuable in the market," said Dave Keil, CEO of QASymphony. "By combining QASymphony's best-in-class test case management with TestPlant's leading test automation, we allow automated and manual testers to work together and achieve higher quality in their organizations."
Ideally suited to DevOps and Agile development environments, and companies undertaking digital transformation projects, eggPlant Functional uses a patented image-based approach to GUI testing that allows it to interact with any device by looking at the screen, in the same way a user does. Purpose-built to help development teams deliver quality software at an Agile pace, qTest allows companies to easily track, manage, organize and report on test case management efforts.
"Software testing tools should be built to empower testers to add business value during the development lifecycle," said Kevin Dunne, VP of Strategy and Business Development at QASymphony. "eggPlant's unique image based approach to test automation is truly cross platform and able to tackle the multi-channel challenges that modern software organizations face. By allowing teams to quickly scale and manage their test automation footprint, eggPlant's strategy fits squarely with our goal to provide better software at all stages in the development life cycle."
"As companies scale-up their adoption of test automation, effective test management is becoming increasingly important. But test management tools have traditionally often required significant effort for little reward," said George Mackintosh, CEO, TestPlant. "QASymphony is a leader in a new generation of test management tools designed for modern Agile and DevOps environments that help companies create better software. This is what makes the QASymphony integration with eggPlant a perfect match - it's a combination of the best in test management with the best in test automation."
