For third straight year, IBM delivers market-leading software test automation
For the third year in a row, IBM has been named a leader in the eyes of an analyst. IDC has named IBM a leader in not just one, but four assessments focused around Continuous Testing, Testing Mobile applications and DevOps:
Vendors positioned as leaders by IDC in these reports:
According to IDC, one of our greatest strengths is the sheer breadth, scale, depth, range and longevity of our automated software quality (ASQ) and application lifecycle management (ALM) product portfolios.
To deploy high-quality applications with speed and control in both hybrid cloud and on premises environments, software testing needs to be automated. By automating software testing, an organization can implement different scenarios, test out differentiators such as moving elements of the solution into a cloud, and quickly get feedback on what works or doesn't work. Automated software testing helps organizations make decisions about risk, by allowing them to respond and react to feedback with speed and control. Good software testing includes testing at the API level, the user interface level, and the overall system level. The more tests that are automated, and run earlier and with more frequency, the more quickly an enterprise can deploy reliable software and updates.
For us, being recognized as a leader in all these IDC reports demonstrates the breadth and strength of IBM’s Rational Test Workbench as a versatile and reliable continuous testing solution.
