SmartBear Named a Worldwide Leader in IDC MarketScape
SmartBear positioned in Leaders Category in IDC MarketScape for enterprise ASQ and continuous testing for digital execution, amidst global shift to digital innovation
"Overall, SmartBear is well positioned to help support emerging environments as part of digital transformation initiatives and cloud testing and as an alternative to enterprise ASQ offerings with some synergistic analytics to complement those vendors focusing on security and quality," said Melinda-Carol Ballou, Research Director, Agile ALM, Quality & Portfolio Strategies at IDC. "SmartBear exemplifies what IDC is increasingly observing — a demand for intuitive, combined products at lower price points with leverage of open source and integration to core application life cycle management (ALM) systems."
The IDC MarketScape:
This report also notes, "SmartBear focuses on developer-led quality engagements with the belief that critical testing will start early in the development cycle and on a frequent basis. The company has a set of products that meet the needs of organizations in various stages of their quality maturity with a strong footprint in both developer-led and QA/tester-led quality."
"As organizations bridge and deploy applications across cross-functional environments, creating an end-to-end quality approach that includes API life cycle and a proactive ASQ management strategy is critical," said Calvin Fudge, Sr. Director, Industry Analyst Relations at SmartBear. "We are happy that this IDC MarketScape cited various strengths of SmartBear, including intuitive product capabilities, breadth of product set, and simplicity of our combined offering as compared with high-end, more expensive solutions."
The SmartBear products considered as part of this vendor assessment include SwaggerHub, ReadyAPI, TestComplete, Zephyr (Squad, Scale, and Enterprise), Bugsnag, BitBar, CrossBrowserTesting, LoadNinja, AlertSite, Collaborator, and CucumberStudio, as well as support for Swagger, Cucumber BDD, and SoapUI open source projects.
