Kevin Surace, co-founder and CTO of Appvance
Appvance makes a platform called Appvance IQ, or AIQ for short. The platform is all-encompassing – web, API, native mobile, functional, compatibility, performance, load, and security tests. It becomes a centerpiece of your quality initiative.

We break test creation into two buckets.

  1. Low code/no code ML-driven Test Designer
  2. AI-based Autonomous Testing

In Test Designer, you have a world-class rapid script creator that uses English or JavaScript to write tests at the UX and API levlevelsnd; it’s compatible with every major UI library like React and Angular. We Peopleeate base-level scripts theon ir first day 20X faster than writing in Selenium. Test Designer alone garners a 300% productivity improvement across the QA effort (dev or QA engineers).

AI-based Autonomous testing is four years old and augments specific use cases. You simin an AI engine to act in certain ways with your web or mobile apps. Once it has learned what is important to you, it builds a baseline of your application, and then on each new build, it will look for bugs, differences, issues, faand failed validations. It is data-driven or will create its own, generating 100thousands tests in minutes. In addition, it can simulate the flows of real user activities. Everyone who is using this says it’s a game-changer for quality. Find up to 10X more bugs with 98% less effort.

Guy Arieli, QA CTO, Continuous Testing (formerly Experitest) enables organizations to increase release velocity while providing customers with satisfying, error-free experiences across all devices and browsers. 

 With Continuous Testing, users can test their mobile apps remotely from their browsers across 2,000+ real iOS and Android devices, emulators, and simulators hosted in’s global data centers. Manual testing features full device control, and large-scale automated testing is easily created and run using these cloud-based devices.

 Automated and live cross-browser testing capabilities are offered for testing web applications remotely with secure manual interactions. Perform large-scale parallel test execution across real desktop browsers of any type and version. Continuous Testing also seamlessly integrates with best-in-class tools throughout the DevOps pipeline. Your testing teams can work comfortably and efficiently using the tools they are already most familiar with. The hassles around managing resources like Appium, Selenium, XCUI, Espresso, and Cyprus are removed.

Once your web or mobile app is fully developed,’s Performance Monitoring tool helps you analyze performance by simulating different servers, measuring transaction duration, and speed index.’s Accessibility Testing Cloud features real devices and browsers with full voice, talkback, and gesture support to help ensure liver accessible web and application experiences for people with disabilities. Using the Appium integration, you can even automate your accessibility testing for faster compliance with all international web accessibility standards.

 Finally, Test Analytics comes with a complete, consolidated view of the test execution results using advanced testing analytics with AI. Cloud managers can then use the customized dashboards to improve the test automation quality and ensure that scripts are stable.

Dan Belcher, co-founder at mabl
Mabl is the simplest, most capable intelligent test automation solution on the market that’s designed to give software testers a centralized platform for end-to-end testing. At mabl, we’re focused on solving ana fundamental challenge: enabling software teams to innovate quickly while meeting high customer expectations for quality. In other words – to build useful things faster with fewer mistakes.

Mabl’s low-code interface for test creation and maintenance requires up to 80% less effort than alternatives, improving collaboration and reducing the programming expertise needed to write and maintain automated tests. Our auto-healing capabilities harness the power of AI and machine learning to automatically detect changes throughout the UI and update tests accordingly, significantly reducing the burden of test maintenance.

The mabl desktop app also enables users to run the browser, API, and local web tests in the cloud or locally through a single experience. Rather than worry about recreating a clean testing environment in a new browser every time they start a new test, the mabl app automatically opens a free newser, reducing the risk of faulty tests and allowing testers to move faster.  

Mabl offers integrations with Slack, Jira, and Postman that make it eintegratingomated testing into existing workflows, excluding shift-left initiatives that bring developers into the testing strategy. Additional integrations with tools like Segment allow testers to align automated testing with actual user journeys, making it easier to connect testing success to business success.

Quality professionals are quickly taking on a new – and critical – role in the enterprise as the keepers of product quality. To do so, they need solutions that enable them to automate routine tasks, embrace a data-driven testing strategy, and focus their talents on high-level quality initiatives. Mabl is the only end-to-end test automation solution designed to meet that challenge.

Mark Lambert, vice president of Strategic Initiatives at Parasoft
According to a recent Forrester survey, quality continues to be a priority and the primary metric for measuring the success of software deliveries. With the continued pressure to release software faster and with fewer defects, it’s not just about speed — it’s about delivering quality at a rate.  

Managers must ask themselves if they are confident in the quality of the applications being delivered by their teams. Continuous quality is necessary for every organization to efficiently reduce the risk of costly operational outages and accelerate time-to-market. 

A reliable and maintainable automated testing strategy. W is critical to reaching your quality targets when computerized tests can be easily created and maintained; your team can focus on the overall quality of the application and verify the use cases rather than the test scripts themselves. Parasoft solutions leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to enable rapid test creation, self-healing, smart test execution, and other capabilities that streamline your test automation workflows. 

A leader in the “Forrester Wave: Continuous Functional Test Automation Suites 2020” report, Parasoft provides a complete and integrated quality suite. From deep code analysis for security and reliability, through unit, API, and UI test automation, to performance testing and service virtualization, which enable verification of nonfunctional business requirements, Parasoft helps you build quality into your software development process. 

“Parasoft’s continuous testing shines in API testing, service virtualization, integration testing, and the combined automation context,” Forrester wrote in its Wave report. According to the report, if you are “looking for a genuine partner in testing, with strong and long-living roots in the testing space and complex technical systems to test, [you] should take a serious look at Parasoft.”

Clinton Sprauve, director of Product Marketing at Tricentis
Agile and DevOps have made Continuous Testing essential. Yet, software testing is still dominated by legacy tools and outdated processes—which don’t meet the needs of today’s digital transformation initiatives.  

With Tricentis Tosca, customers can achieve over 90% test automation and “shift left” testing much earlier in the software development life cycle. Also, enterprises today still perform over 80% of their testing manually—mostly at the UI layer. As a result, testing occurs late in the software development life cycle, leading to high costs, inefficiency, and delayed innovation.

One distinctive Tricentis innovation is Vision AI, a next-generation AI-driven test automation technology that allows teams to automate UI test cases independent of the underlying technology.  

Through machine learning, Vision AI sees and steers any UI just like a human user, making your automation but future-proof as adaptable as the human brain. If you can see it, Vision AI can automate it. This includes anything from an app using now-deprecated technologies to using emerging technologies o apps you access remotely. You can even start building test automation from mockups or whiteboard drawings. This brings a new meaning to test-driven development. 

Another key advantage of the Tricentis Continuous Testing platform is that it helps enterprise organizations break through the automation barrier. Companies take automation further by using our complete platform for continuous testing across their UIs, back end, and even their data. With They achieve scalable, sustainable success with an extensive set of integrated tools for designing, optimizing, and maintaining resilient automation, the
