Merger with ArtOfTest repositions Telerik as a major player in the automated testing market
Waltham, MA, April 12, 2010 – Telerik, a leading provider of development tools and solutions for the Microsoft .NET platform, today announced the launch of WebUI Test Studio 2010, an innovative and easy-to-use automated web-testing solution. Encompassing essential web technologies such as ASP.NET AJAX, Silverlight, and MVC, Telerik’s WebUI Test Studio represents one of the most comprehensive, yet cost-effective automated testing suites available in the marketplace. With distinct product editions specialized to meet the needs of QA professionals and software developers, WebUI Test Studio marks Telerik’s entry into the QA and testing space.
"The market is saturated with tools for automated testing of web applications, however, these solutions are often hindered by generic feature sets, multiple layers of complexity, and outdated or non-existent support for emerging web technologies," noted Christopher Eyhorn, Executive Vice President, Telerik Automated Testing Division. "Further, many of these tools are priced out of reach for the very customers who need them the most: small- and medium-sized businesses. Telerik is committed to addressing the needs of this underserved market by delivering a superior solution that transforms the way automated testing is done."
Resulting from its recent merger with ArtOfTest, a software quality assurance technology provider, Telerik Automated Testing Tools wrap robust features and the ability to address even the most intricate scenarios. The intuitive user interface emulates the familiar look-and-feel of handheld consumer devices. Tasks can be quickly and easily completed with the product’s point-and-click interface, augmented by Telerik-exclusive features such as visual storyboard and 3D element selection. Additionally, WebUI Test Studio is the industry’s first product offering scriptless test automation for Silverlight applications. Other key features and supported functionality also includes:
- ASP.NET AJAX and MVC automation
- Test reuse and web element abstraction
- Cross-browser test execution
- Data-driven testing
"With its exceptional functionality, flexibility, and flat learning curve, WebUI Test Studio requires less time and fewer resources to realize optimum team-wide benefit," said Faris Sweis, Chief Software Architect, Telerik Automated Testing Division. "WebUI Test Studio is a powerful yet affordable and cost-effective solution providing a gateway for teams to achieve greater levels of productivity in a shorter amount of time."
WebUI Test Studio offers two different editions – a standalone edition for QA professionals, and a Visual Studio plugin for developers wishing to perform functional testing themselves. Both editions use identical repositories and file formats, facilitating seamless collaboration between even geographically diverse teams. Product pricing and bundle options are designed to remove cost-related barriers to entry for teams and organizations of any size:
- WebUI Test Studio QA Edition – $2,499 USD; includes one machine license and one year of updates and priority support
- WebUI Test Studio Developer Edition – $1,499 USD; includes one machine license one year of updates and priority support
- WebUI Test Studio Bundle – $2,999 USD; includes one machine license for both WebUI Test Studio QA Edition and WebUI Test Studio Developer Edition, one year of updates and priority support
- Telerik Ultimate Developer Collection – $1,999 USD; includes all Telerik UI suites (ASP.NET AJAX, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, WPF, WinForms), developer productivity tools (Reporting, JustCode, JustMock, OpenAccess ORM), and WebUI Test Studio Developer Edition
WebUI Test Studio will make its official debut during DevConnections 2010, April 12 – 14, 2010, at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
