Testing Anywhere Solves Test Automation Problems in a Scriptless Way

Automation Anywhere (www.AutomationAnywhere.com), a global leader in automation software, today announced that it has expanded the functionality of its scriptless software testing solution, Testing Anywhere, with new cross-browser testing automation functionality.

Analysts note the growing importance of scriptless software testing, especially as it enables more business users to run tests themselves. For example, Gartner recently cited Automation Anywhere as a "Sample Vendor" for Scriptless Testing in its "Hype Cycle for Application Development, 2012". Gartner wrote: "The goal is to enable business user testing and to reduce maintenance costs. Most products are focused on functional automation, but performance testing products are also appearing" and "We are seeing strong growth for these companies."

In addition to today's launch of its cross browser tools, Testing Anywhere has become a leading scriptless test automation solution with previous enhancements to Silverlight, Flex and Java.

"Companies need to test web sites and web applications across a wide number of browsers but this can be expensive or time consuming," said Mihir Shukla, founder and CEO of Automation Anywhere. "Cross browser testing can't get much easier or be more effective than with Testing Anywhere's scriptless approach."

Users of Testing Anywhere simply create a script in a single browser and then decide which of the browsers they want to test. Then they click go.

About Testing Anywhere

Testing Anywhere provides a more efficient way to perform automated testing and collaborate among QA professionals, developers and other members of the application development life cycle. Testing Anywhere's unique Object Avatar functionality is widely seen as a breakthrough technology for creating test cases, especially useful for agile development. Object Avatar creates test cases up to 300% faster by not needing to connect to an application while creating tests. Testing Anywhere also increases testing speed and improves collaboration through its Test-to-EXE functionality that can convert a test to an EXE, allowing the user to run and share the test case on any machine, even running on computers where Testing Anywhere is not installed. One of the most powerful features of Testing Anywhere is the ability to automate test cases that are not instrumented - QA testers can test product-ready test cases, omitting the need for code stripping at a later time.
