According to a recent InformationWeek article by John Edwards, “Good times or bad, digital transformation is a firmly established reality. Yet many business leaders are still struggling with how to approach, deploy, and manage a seemingly endless string of disruptive technologies.” Edwards goes on to argue that technological factors are one of the chief issues impeding digital success and, as any reader of this blog will know, this is a problem Eggplant is passionate about solving.
To that end, we released the latest version of our Digital Automation Intelligence (DAI) Platform today. Our platform is a central component of our mission to rid the world of bad software, and the new features support this in numerous ways, including:
- A Deep Learning model that can easily classify user interface elements across any platform. The technology automatically classifies UI elements such as buttons, radio and text fields, and autogenerates these elements and the respective test assets required throughout the entire technology environment.
- A Common Asset Repository to store both Models and Suites. This makes it really easy to deploy Eggplant’s enterprise scale testing capabilities across multiple machines, and processes are further streamlined via a single, modern interface.
- Usability improvements that drive efficiencies and more comprehensive test coverage. The latest version of DAI features numerous usability enhancements, including text autocompletion which reduces administrative work and increases accuracy.
- New cloud capabilities for greater flexibility, collaboration and business continuity. Eggplant Cloud offers customers new capabilities for modeling, intelligent test scheduling and is delivered in containers for added reliability, security and business continuity.
There’s no denying that delivering high-quality software in the digital age is a challenging undertaking, but it’s also impossible to argue that companies can afford to ignore digital demands. To quote Edwards’ InformationWeek piece again, “Many business leaders delay implementing powerful new technologies until competition forces their hand.” And for many, the implications of this delay could take years to overcome or, in some cases, seal the company’s fate entirely.
That’s why Eggplant’s DAI Platform should be an essential part of any modern tester’s toolkit. We’re on a mission to rid the world of bad software, and we won’t stop until it’s eradicated.
