Over the next few days the billionth test will run on the Sauce Labs platform! This is an exciting milestone for us as a company.
Looking back, it took about seven years to reach the first 500 million tests. Now, in<span just over a year, the number has doubled to one billion. This acceleration reflects the rapid uptake of automated testing and the expanding adoption of the Sauce Labs platform by enterprise customers. We now have customers such as Slack, Zillow, Dollar Shave Club, and many others using our platform for automated testing--so they can spend more time innovating. Don't just take our word for it, though. Results from the recent Dimensional Research survey found 87% of technology professionals are using some form of test automation, and the percentage of companies who report that their testing is mostly or entirely automated is growing steadily year over year.
We have every reason to believe this growth will continue. And we won't rest on our laurels. We'll keep helping our customers automate their testing to deliver high-quality web and mobile applications, and before you know it, we'll be on our way to two billion.
For a little bit of fun in the meantime, guess which of our customers will run the billionth test. Comment on this post or tweet to us using the hashtag #OneBillionStrong and you could win some cool Sauce swag!
