We're pleased to announce that Parasoft was named a leader in the new Forrester Research report on Functional Test Automation Tools*. Forrester Research gave Parasoft the highest score among all vendors in the Current Offering category, noting that "Parasoft’s focus on developers, API testing, and evolved analytics pays off."
According to the report, "Parasoft has the strongest continuous testing product offering, with a long list of mature features in UI automation and comprehensive functional API testing automation and rich integrations with third-party CI/CD pipeline tools, version control options, integration with Agile PM, and nonfunctional test automation such as integration and security testing. These features plus the solution’s performance and service virtualization tools make it stand out. Parasoft’s solution also stood out in our assessment of maintenance, reuse, and reporting analytics."
This Forrester Wave report evaluates 11 functional test automation tool vendors across 33 criteria to help organizations working on enterprise, mobile, and web applications select the right tool.
“Forrester’s FTA Wave provides an objective benchmark of all functional testing solutions, and we are extremely honored to be recognized as a leader,” said Marc Brown, Parasoft Chief Marketing Officer. “We believe that the report underscores Parasoft’s commitment to advancing automated functional testing and the tremendous value it delivers to software organizations looking to accelerate the development of tomorrow’s applications without compromising quality and security.”
Forrester emphasizes that API testing is a critical component for modern application delivery: "Going beyond the UI and testing APIs is crucial to avoiding brittle test suites and increasing coverage. AD&D cannot achieve ruthless automation by focusing solely on test execution automation; it also requires automating test design and process orchestration."
