Sauce Labs Recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Mobile Testing and Digital Quality

Posted Mar 27th, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO - March 27, 2018 - Sauce Labs, Inc., provider of the world’s largest continuous testing cloud for web and mobile applications, today announced that it was named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Testing and Digital Quality 20172018 Vendor Assessment - Enabling Digital Transformation via Quality Solution (doc # US40344615, FEBRUARY 2018).

More than half of the world’s web traffic now comes from mobile devices, and the consequences of delivering poor app quality are significant. User frustration, lost revenue, app abandonment, and bad reviews can all damage brand reputation, and while there are increasing pressures to release updates quickly, it is equally as critical to deliver high quality digital experiences. Automated testing can improve code quality and significantly speed the time to release.

“Being recognized as a Leader in this IDC MarketScape reaffirms our belief that Sauce Labs offers the most comprehensive continuous testing cloud for mobile apps,” said Charles Ramsey, CEO of Sauce Labs. “Today, the customer experience is more important than ever, and organizations need a holistic approach that involves both manual and automated testing across real devices as well as emulators and simulators. As more organizations ‘shift left’ to find bugs earlier in the development cycle, it is also critical to support the leading open source frameworks used by developers such as Appium, Espresso and XCUITest. Only Sauce Labs satisfies all these requirements for mobile app testing.”
