Tricentis acquires Waldo to efficiently execute mobile tests

Tricentis has acquired the cordless mobile test automation platform, Waldo, to enable organisations to efficiently author and execute mobile tests and ensure quality throughout the CI/CD pipeline.

Tricentis, an expert in continuous testing and quality engineering, announced the acquisition of Waldo, a SaaS-based, no-code, zero-footprint mobile test automation platform. 

Waldo complements and extends Tricentis' mobile testing offerings with new test automation capabilities, including native, hybrid, and web mobile application testing using virtual devices supporting iOS simulators and Android emulators.  

Mobile applications are a central part of our lives, enabling business operations, accelerating worldwide communications, and providing an effortless way to connect and collaborate. 

According to Statista, mobile devices now generate nearly 59% of global website traffic. However, Tricentis says that managing a mobile test infrastructure as part of a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline can be time-consuming and expensive for organisations striving to achieve mobile application quality. 

Waldo addresses these challenges by delivering SaaS-based test automation that simplifies mobile test authoring, management, and execution directly from a browser. 

As organisations shift left and increase their focus on shipping quality code, Waldo allows them to test every commit through emulation using virtual mobile devices cost-effectively.

Kevin Thompson, Chairman and CEO, Tricentis, says: "The number and complexity of mobile applications continues to increase with no signs of slowing down."

"We believe the combination of what Waldo brings from a depth-of-knowledge and technology perspective combined with what Tricentis offers in our breadth-of-test automation expertise will allow us to deliver higher-quality mobile applications at the speed and scale businesses require."

Along with Tricentis Testim Mobile and Tricentis Tosca Mobile, Waldo adds value to the Tricentis mobile application testing offerings and AI-based test automation platform. 

Mobile application development teams gain simplicity and speed in authoring tests, power, and flexibility through execution on a virtual device cloud.

Laurent Sigal, Co-Founder and CTO of Waldo, says: "We are very excited to join Tricentis." 

"As a leader in test automation with a comprehensive set of mobile application testing offerings, the company has uniquely positioned itself to support mobile app quality holistically across the software development lifecycle."

"We see a world of possibilities in how we can leverage our technologies," says Sigal.

The Tricentis AI-based, continuous testing portfolio of products are designed to provide a new and fundamentally different way to perform software testing through an approach that's automated, fully codeless, and intelligently driven by AI. 

This approach addresses agile development and complex enterprise apps, enabling organisations to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives by dramatically increasing software release speed, reducing costs, and improving software quality. 

Widely credited for reinventing software testing for DevOps, cloud, and enterprise applications, Tricentis has been recognised as an expert in the industry by Forrester, Gartner, and IDC. 

Tricentis has over 2,500 customers, including McKesson, Allianz, Telstra, Dolby, and Vodafone.
