âAs a leader in quality engineering, Applitools and its visual AI technology are changing almost every aspect of the way quality software is delivered today,â said Antoine Aymer, Group CTO for Quality Engineering at Sogeti. âAs a mature technology adopted by leading brands across all verticals, visual AI is essential to help accelerate the delivery of digital experiences through the activation of modern engineering practices. ”
Today’s software engineering teams are faced with increasing application complexity, an explosion of device / browser combinations, and constant business pressure for faster release, resulting in a quality issue of increasingly difficult to which traditional approaches to test automation cannot adapt. Additionally, any delay between code verification and defect detection creates friction for developers and waiting for a finished UI introduces delays for testing, putting release schedules at risk due to discovered defects. late in the development cycle.
âThe Sogeti report shares information on how AI is applied to quality engineering and the evolving roles of developers and testers,â said Marc Lambert, VP and AI Evangelist at Applitools. âVisual AI frees engineering teams from mundane and repetitive tasks, resulting in fundamental increases in efficiency and overall reductions in costs associated with quality. We are delighted to see that Visual AI continues to be recognized by industry leaders as an essential part of a modern software delivery pipeline. “
Applitools visual AI provides three main features that allow teams to quickly identify regressions between UI snapshots during active development:
1) Highly accurate comparison algorithms ensure developers aren’t plagued by false positives, a challenge faced by the traditional pixel-matching approach for visual testing.
2) Automated maintenance dramatically reduces overhead by grouping and categorizing visual defects, allowing the team to quickly verify steps across multiple tests and environments, in a fraction of the time it takes to achieve the same result manually.
3) Accelerated cross-browser testing, running validation on all combinations of browsers, devices, and window combinations in seconds.
How does visual AI increase exit speed?
Applitools visual AI integrates directly into a team’s existing test automation practice and enables full automated UI regressions with a single snapshot or single line of code. By reducing the amount of test code required and the use of fragile item locators, tests are created 5.8 times faster, with a corresponding 3.8 times reduction in test maintenance, while increasing coverage tests to detect 45% more bugs. In addition, the accuracy and efficiency of Applitools visual AI enables accelerated cross-browser testing 18.2 times faster than traditional cloud execution platforms, rendering on any combination. of browsers, devices and windows in seconds versus minutes or hours.
