TestPlant Acknowledged as 'Visionary' by Gartner

LONDON, September 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Gartner adds only TestPlant in 2014 MQ, straight into the ratings as a Visionary 

TestPlant, the maker of the eggPlant range of software quality tools, today announced that Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has recognized TestPlant as a Visionary in its Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Integrated Software Quality Suites. TestPlant is the only company to have been added to this year's MQ which is widely recognized as the industry's authoritative source for assessing vendor competitiveness based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Gartner has rated TestPlant as a Visionary for integrated software quality based on the completeness of the company's eggPlant product offering, which includes both functional and performance testing, as well as test management capabilities. The company's focus on developing products that are easy to use was also recognized as a key strength, along with its ability to deliver a constant stream of innovation.

"This is really important news for large organisations looking to find new tools and solutions to the problems of software quality and the high costs of testing. Gartner confirms that eggPlant tools are innovative and offer low on-boarding costs," said George Mackintosh, TestPlant CEO. "We look forward to working with enterprise customers as they tackle the challenges of agile, DevOps and the digital transformations of their businesses."

The reusability of eggPlant's functional tests across performance testing was identified as another strength, highlighting the smooth integration between the different eggPlant tools, as were the integrations between the eggPlant range and popular Continuous Integration tools.

Gartner's considered opinions echo the findings from the TestPlant 2014 User Survey which recorded "ease of use" as the #1 reason to buy eggPlant tools. This was closely followed by product feature richness and environment flexibility. Also noted were the very high levels of customer satisfaction in TestPlant technical support.
