Eggplant x Sauce Labs: from partnership to product integration
by Nico Carnaval, on 10/12/22
In June, Eggplant announced a new strategic partnership with Sauce Labs, a market leader in real device cloud testing. This strategic alliance enables Eggplant users to quickly scale and increase test coverage, whilst driving down costs and operational burden.
“Every company is striving to build digital confidence while also eliminating any bottlenecks in testing. This partnership empowers software development and QA teams to ship faster with higher quality. Keysight’s Eggplant cloud-based test automation platform, in conjunction with the Sauce Labs device clouds and DevOps Test Toolchain, empowers customers to add breadth, depth, and scale to their testing.”
- John Kelly, Chief Strategy Officer at Sauce Labs
The development of the partnership
Today we are proud to unveil a new faster way to connect to Sauce Labs. With the touch of one button, users can test across the broad range of devices available directly from Eggplant Test.
One of the biggest improvements made available on our Fusion Engine is the ability to test IOS & Android devices from Windows, Linux & Macintosh in a simple and smart way. This new experience will streamline how you test, offering the most efficient route to connect to a Sauce Labs SUT (System Under Test) without any additional steps.

Challenges of device testing
Testing across multiple platforms is challenging and ensuring device compatibility can be a major issue for modern enterprises. Maintaining a costly on-site device lab is only part of the challenge; the management of testing across the diverse range of operating systems, browsers, and devices adds to the complexity of testing.
