SOMERVILLE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartBear, the leader in software quality tools for teams, was recognized as a Leader and Major Player in multiple IDC MarketScape reports. IDC, a world-renown market intelligence firm, recognized SmartBear in four recent reports, highlighting the company’s ability to empower software teams at every stage of the development lifecycle.
- A Leader in IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Automated Software Quality 2017-2018 Vendor Assessment – Driving Business Optimization via DevOps with Continuous Test and Integration (IDC Doc # US41601117)

The drive toward digital transformation has resulted in increased pressure on software development teams to increase the frequency of release cycles, manage infinite combinations of end-user devices, and create standardization to achieve velocity in testing efforts. New approaches and processes such as test automation, continuous integration, and DevOps present opportunities for teams to overcome these challenges and improve their software development efforts – but success is reliant on the right tooling.
SmartBear continues to innovate its test automation tools to support teams looking to build high quality software, faster. The Leader and Major Player status that SmartBear achieved in the latest IDC MarketScape reports shows that SmartBear is distancing itself from other providers listed as Contenders and Participants in the reports. SmartBear allows organizations to have the flexibility to avoid pricey tools and implementations that come with large toolsets with features they may or may not use. Customers can choose what they need today from SmartBear’s comprehensive product suite and expand as their software quality needs grow with the complexity of their business.
SmartBear products make automating UI and API functional tests fast and easy across IoT protocols and desktop, web, and mobile applications. With TestComplete, you can build automated UI tests faster with an industry-leading object recognition and with CrossBrowserTesting, you can instantly run tests across 1,500 real devices and browsers in the cloud. For end-to-end testing needs, you can then run automated API tests on REST and SOAP web services with SoapUI Pro. Aside from in-product benefits, working with SmartBear brings advantages such as designated customer success reps, access to an active community with responses within 60 minutes of a post, and free training classes and support.
