Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Tricentis has acquired TestProject, a first-of-its-kind community-powered test automation platform designed for Agile teams.
As part of its commitment to TestProject, Tricentis will be investing in research and development to advance the product, extend the community, and help testers master best practices for web, Android, and iOS test automation.
TestProject is built on the leading open source test automation tools, Selenium and Appium. It supports all major operating systems, and enables any software team to test web, Android, and iOS apps using a “low-code/no-code” approach. With the community-driven approach, automation building blocks are shared with the entire community—reducing the time required to construct robust test automation. AI-based matching automatically analyzes the application under test and recommends add-ons that will enhance the tests.
Democratizing test automation
“Tricentis is a company that has always placed the tester first,” said Sandeep Johri, CEO of Tricentis. “By joining forces with TestProject, we strengthen our commitment to democratizing test automation, providing an open platform for innovation. Working with enterprises, we’ve witnessed a distinct need to scale open source testing frameworks across the enterprise. TestProject, with its cloud-based, community-driven technology, delivers a scalable and collaborative solution.”
Partnerships with leading cloud providers
TestProject will retain its free, community-based offering and will operate independently, providing an open platform for all testers in all industries. Testers can continue using the programming languages, tools, and operating systems of their choice for their projects. Moreover, TestProject users can enhance their test automation with additional Tricentis capabilities for Agile test management, load testing, and end-to-end testing. Tricentis will leverage its partnerships with leading cloud providers like Microsoft and AWS to extend its current lead in cloud testing.
TestProject’s current CEO, Mark Kardashov, will become Managing Director of TestProject and the TestProject team will continue driving TestProject’s innovation within Tricentis.
Ensure every tester is empowered
“I’m extremely proud of what TestProject and our community have accomplished over the past several years, and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead,” Kardashov said. “Testing is a critical piece of any software development pipeline, and I’m thrilled to be joining forces with the market leader, Tricentis, to ensure every tester is empowered. Tricentis’ focus on the tester aligns perfectly with our own, and Tricentis’ scale, tools, and global brand will play a huge role in making TestProject the leader in community-powered test automation.”
