The Forrester Wave™: Modern Application Functional Test Automation Tools, Q2 2015
Ensure Quality Of Enterprise, Mobile, And Web Applications Without Sacrificing Delivery Speed
April 17, 2015
Why Read This Report
Fast application development and delivery (AD&D) is a must. But, so is quality. The growing architectural complexity of modern applications makes functional test automation (FTA) tools an essential component of the application development life cycle. But don't make the mistake of thinking that FTA tools are just about testing user interfaces (UIs). Modern FTA tools must also provide testing of application programming interfaces (APIs). In Forrester's 40-criteria evaluation of FTA vendors, we identified tools from nine vendors: Borland, CA Technologies, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Parasoft, SmartBear, TestPlant and Tricentis. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help AD&D professionals select the right FTA tool.
