Tech Goodness: Eggplant offers testing automation aid

eggplant logoLockdown may be easing and back to workplace plans progressing but the pressure to keep systems running safely and efficiently does not let up, nor do examples of Tech Goodness from the supplier community. 

The ‘new normal’ will continue to put pressure on websites and networks, bringing performance testing forward, particularly automated user-centric performance testing. Software testing specialist Eggplant is making Eggplant Performance, which simulates virtual users at the application UI and network protocol levels, available for free until the end of June, along with 20 free sessions with Eggplant's Advanced Performance Engineering Team (the latter on a first come, first served basis). It is also offering free business value assessments to help organisations build a business case for automation through access to its ROI visualisation tools, and free automation accreditation. As well as NHS software care packages. 

As we move into the next stage of the COVID-19 response, technology will come under increased scrutiny as costs are reviewed in the light of an economic downturn and prioritised as “must have” – or not. Talking with Eggplant CEO John Bates and COO Antony Edwards recently, there were plenty of signs that automated testing software is well positioned to make it into the “must have” category. Eggplants capabilities have been called on by organisations in the thick of the UK C-19 response and demand for remote testing from both existing and new customers has risen as businesses reorganise around the remote working model that looks set to be an important aspect of working life for the foreseeable.
