UiPath has announced that it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cloud Testing 2022 Vendor Assessment.

IDC says its MarketScape vendor assessment model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT suppliers in a given market.

This report looks at cloud testing adoption trends and their influence on organisational success through the development of secure, high-quality software.

Additionally, UiPath notes this is the first time it has been included among traditional software quality tools.

In particular, the IDC MarketScape recognises UiPath for capitalising on its Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology and its dominant position in the enterprise automation market to help enable timely, needed coordination and synergy for automation testing.

“The breadth, depth, and preeminence of UiPath's RPA portfolio provide a solid foundation for the company's testing portfolio,” IDC Application Life-Cycle Management (ALM) program Research Director Melinda-Carol Ballou says in the report.

“The open architecture and API integration strategies position UiPath to expand and augment its testing portfolio functionality and offer the benefits of broad, supported products that are popularly adopted and dominant in the market. At the same time, businesses are increasingly dependent on RPA.

“The demand is growing for testing business-critical RPA components and capabilities that have become increasingly vital with the rise of no-code development, which UiPath is singularly well-positioned to address.

“UiPath has a differentiated opportunity to leverage its portfolio synergistically both for software testing efficiency and to address demand for RPA testing.

UiPath explains that Test Suite accelerates digital transformation through business automation by combining RPA technology with testing capabilities to sustainably fast-track expansion through proactive testing, cross-enterprise collaboration, and a consistent approach to create and deploy automations.

Furthermore, Test Suite benefits practitioners who create automations and stakeholders who depend on automations, including transformation leaders, business users, customers, and partners.

The benefits of adopting UiPath for application testing and RPA requirements include:

  • Centralising governance by using a common automation platform and approach.
  • Building automation momentum by sharing automations between test and RPA teams.
  • Ensuring every automation deployed is resilient, compliant, and high performing.
  • Sharing skills, experience, and automation resources across the organisation.

“We want our platform to enable every company to be a fully automated enterprise. That means providing capabilities that allow companies to scale automation and take full advantage of it throughout their operations through the strength of our cloud offering,” UiPath Testing Products, product management senior vice president Dr Gerd Weishaar says.

“We're the first RPA platform to offer automated RPA testing, and we continue to be innovation leaders in providing an easy-to-use, scalable, flexible automated testing tool that provides superior testing capability to RPA teams as well as application testing teams.

“We're incredibly proud of our recognition from the IDC MarketScape, and we believe it validates automation's role in software testing market.
