SAN FRANCISCO, April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sauce Labs Inc., provider of the world’s most comprehensive and trusted continuous testing cloud, today announced the launch of Sauce Performance, a new front-end performance testing solution that expands the company’s solutions beyond functional testing and enables organizations to more quickly and reliably deliver applications to customers. Combining both front-end performance and functional testing into a single solution, Sauce Performance provides developers with actionable insight into performance issues early in the CI/CD pipeline. This empowers developer teams to work faster and more productively, while ensuring an optimal user experience for their customers.
In the digital era, quality is defined by more than just features and functionality. Speed to market and user experience are now equally important to customers, creating pressure for developers to rapidly deliver flawless web and mobile applications. Against this backdrop, the traditional approach of conducting application performance testing late in the software development process, and focusing on backend load/stress testing, is no longer effective. Developers need to identify and resolve both functional and front-end performance issues as early in the development process as possible. With Sauce Performance as part of the Sauce Labs Continuous Testing Cloud, they can now do just that.
“Developers at digitally driven organizations have made shifting left and implementing continuous testing throughout the software delivery pipeline a top priority, and front-end performance testing is critical to those efforts,” said Lubos Parobek, VP of Products, Sauce Labs. “By enabling developers to pinpoint and fix front-end performance issues as part of their continuous integration and continuous delivery processes, Sauce Performance reduces the tangible and intangible costs incurred when issues are found late in the development lifecycle. Combined with the upcoming release of our new headless testing solution, Sauce Labs continues to lead the way for organizations looking to shift testing left.”
Two Functions, One Solution
Today’s front-end performance testing solutions typically require a complex integration with a load/stress testing tool, or a separate application performance monitoring tool altogether, creating an added layer of productivity-sapping complexity for developers. Sauce Performance simplifies the process by allowing developers to use existing Selenium test scripts to capture both functional and performance test data. This gives developers detailed front-end performance metrics, algorithmically recommended baselines, and root cause analysis, without needing to create new scripts or deploy new infrastructure.
