How Perfecto Was Selected

In this report, Forrester picked 15 vendors in the space of continuous functional test automation and evaluated their abilities. The positions in the wave were based on 26 evaluation criterion. Forrester evaluated the vendors on their omnichannel testing capabilities, customer references, and design, UI, and API functional test automation. Vendor evaluations were also broken into three main categories.

1. Current Offerings

In this category, Perfecto scored high by being able to prove advanced test automation abilities including UI, functional, performance, and API testing. Perfecto received a high score for its continuous testing and test automation abilities, support for all operating environments, and the quality integrations.

 “Perfecto’s cloud device farm is still a strong enterprise choice, with improved parallel testing capabilities and high-level performance test execution at scale with enterprise-grade security.”

2. Strategy

In this category, Perfecto received high scores for the majority of the considerations, validating current and future direction of the product.

“Perfecto plans to enrich its strong reporting and analytics features with more AI and ML, given the potential huge amount of testing data from its clouds.”

3. Market Presence

This category highlighted Perfecto’s significant enterprise market health. Perfecto was also ranked highly due to a very satisfied customer base that is able to maximize test coverage and stability.

Perfecto will be an ideal integrated test suite option for clients focusing on web, mobile, and API testing. Technical, developer, and business testers (to a lesser extent) will find Perfecto to be a good choice. Reference clients confirm its automation strength by showing some of the highest levels of test automation.”

Testing Recommendations

Forrester also offered recommendations for teams seeking to achieve a high degree of automation. Forrester recommends teams:

  • Utilize key advancements in the test automation space to make functional and API test automation smarter and more autonomous.
  • Embed testing into the software development life cycle to optimize the release time and identify quality issues faster. This includes functional, performance, service virtualization, and API testing.
  • Use a consolidated and unified testing suite.

Market Landscape Overview

The long-awaited Forrester Wave™ report made it clear that in order to sustain continuous digital testing, DevOps teams requires a unified, enterprise-class, cloud-based solution as opposed to local/on-prem tools.

Perfecto under Perforce, and together with the newly added codeless solution from TestCraft, is very well positioned to provide all of the enterprise-grade test automation requirements for both mobile native apps and web apps. Perfecto will continue to deliver on its roadmap and vision to boost its current offerings, and add more value on top of its existing continuous testing suite.
