Testing automation platform Tricentis acquires Waldo
- Tricentis, a test automation platform that has acquired quite a few testing services and startups over the years, is making another M&A move with the acquisition of Waldo, an automated testing tool for mobile development teams.I have covered Waldo several times over the past few years.
- Waldo’s no-code mobile testing product will join Tricentis’ other mobile testing offerings, such as Testim Mobile and Tosca Mobile.Waldo lets you upload your app’s executable (.ipa or .apk files) and run it in your browser window.
- From there, you can record some common interactions, such as the signup flow or the transaction flow.After that, every time you submit a new build of your mobile app, Waldo runs the same tests on several devices with different screen sizes, languages and operating system versions.
- If something goes wrong, developers receive a notification and can see the replay of the test.“The number and complexity of mobile applications continues to increase with no signs of slowing down,” Tricentis chairman and CEO Kevin Thompson said in a statement.
- Combining Waldo’s product with Tricentis’ customer base and reach makes sense.Waldo raises $15 million for its automated mobile testing service
- It integrates with your continuous integration (CI) pipeline.Waldo should be able to identify buttons even if the text is different or the position on the screen has changed due to screen resolution differences.
