Keysight Enhances Automated Software Test Solution to Enable Multi-Platform Mobile App Testing

  • Eggplant Test 7.0 features powerful integrations enabling the testing of mobile apps on more than 7,500 operating system and device combinations simultaneously
  • Solution eliminates need for costly devices labs with instant test execution via Sauce Labs’ Real Device Cloud
  • New integrations include Git for version control, Citrix for automated virtual machine testing, Active Directory single-sign-on, and many popular continuous integration tools

August 29, 2023

SANTA ROSA, Calif., – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) has released Eggplant Test 7.0, an enhanced version of the automated software test solution with powerful integrations that enable quality assurance (QA) teams to test mobile apps on multiple devices and operating systems simultaneously.

Mobile apps have become a ubiquitous part of modern digital life, facilitating everything from e-commerce and digital health to home security and business process management. However, users are unlikely to find an app useful if it is buggy or difficult to use. With the myriad of device and operating system combinations, testing mobile apps before they are released is more important than ever. QA teams need automated tools to speed up the validation of app compatibility, functionality, usability, performance, and security across multiple device configurations.

Keysight’s Eggplant Test 7.0 meets this challenge with integrations that can test more than 7,500 operating system and device combinations through Sauce Labs’ Real Device Cloud. The latest version of Eggplant Test offers QA teams advanced collaboration features, seamless integration with continuous integration tools, and the ability to connect with virtualized applications. These capabilities collectively enable automation, acceleration, and mitigation of risks inherent in manual testing to enhance the testing process.

New enhancements to the Eggplant Test platform include:

  • Instant test execution – Eliminates the need for costly device labs by enabling instant test execution on any device and operating system via Sauce Labs’ Real Device Cloud, ensuring comprehensive test coverage without the hassle of managing physical devices.
  • Lightning-fast results – Combines Eggplant Test and Sauce Labs’ Real Device Cloud to run test cases simultaneously reducing overall testing time and accelerating release cycles.
  • Version control integration – Integrates with Git to bring version control capabilities to the test automation process, enabling teams to roll back to previous versions, compare changes, and collaborate seamlessly across multiple branches.
  • Continuous integration (CI) – Integrates with popular CI tools to incorporate test automation into CI/CD pipelines to identify and fix issues earlier, enabling higher-quality software and accelerating time-to-market.
  • Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration – Facilitates enterprise-scale testing by supporting test asset access and control through Active Directory SSO.
  • Enterprise-grade visual verification tools – Automates virtual machine testing through a new Citrix integration that leverages the Intelligent Computer Vision feature to test secure Citrix applications.
  • Enhanced collaboration – Improves collaboration among QA teams by providing a unified platform for test automation that enables team members to seamlessly work together, share test assets, and collaborate in real time.

Gareth Smith, General Manager, Software Test Automation, Keysight, said: “Eggplant Test 7.0 empowers teams to conquer complexity by simultaneously testing mobile apps across over 7,500 operating system and device combinations. By harnessing the power of Sauce Labs’ Real Device Cloud, we eradicate the constraints of costly device labs, unleashing instant test execution. Through seamless integrations like Git, Citrix, Active Directory, and continuous integration tools, we pave the way to unparalleled success through true end-to-end testing. With Eggplant Test 7.0, we are shaping a future defined by seamless, comprehensive testing.”
