LONDON – May 11, 2016Perfecto Mobile, the market leader in empowering enterprises to deliver high-quality digital experiences, today announced it has been cited as a Leader in “The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Front-End Test Automation Tools, Q2 2016.” In its 40-criteria evaluation of mobile front-end test automation tools, Forrester Research, Inc. identified the 10 most significant providers and individually analysed their ability to help application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals select the best solution to maintain an organisation’s unique mobile properties.

According to Forrester Research, “The only bulletproof way to deliver faster is to introduce automation in the software development life cycle, which includes testing. In today’s world of Agile sprints and continuous delivery, practices such as testing mobile apps on the devices that happen to be lying around, with a tester’s fingers tapping away at screens, are gone. Testers can only keep up the pace using automated testing of an app’s user interface (UI) and associated functionality.”

Perfecto’s current offerings rank highest among the assessed vendors based on key evaluation areas such as operating environments, test targets, test creation and management, automation creation and integration. In particular, Perfecto is cited among vendors that “shine by providing on-premises, cloud and hybrid test labs, with rich functional mobile-device-specific testing capabilities.”

Forrester also noted in the report that, “Perfecto pioneered mobile device testing in the cloud [and] it is now expanding to include support for desktop browser and enterprise testing capabilities, giving it more ammunition for multichannel apps testing.”

“We are honoured to be named a Leader in the Forrester Wave: Mobile Front-End Test Automation Tools report. In our opinion, this recognition marks Perfecto as a trailblazer in the industry, with the strongest product offering in the space. We believe this validates our approach to digital quality and our ability to empower companies to deliver high-quality mobile and web apps and websites faster with our Continuous Quality Lab,” said Roi Carmel, Senior Vice President of Product and Strategy, Perfecto. “With our unique cloud-based offering, including our Wind Tunnel™ capabilities, we are enabling dev and test teams to test end-user experiences earlier and enhance test coverage to ensure high-quality digital experiences are part of their delivery pipeline.”

Perfecto recently launched the next version of its cloud-based Continuous Quality Lab™ (CQL) that expands test coverage from mobile web and apps to include web browsers on desktops.
