Keysight Technologies Unveils Eggplant Salesforce Solution That Will Automate 70% of Testing
August 23, 2021 News


Keysight Technologies, a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, whose primary manufacturing and order fulfilment location is in Penang, Malaysia, announced a new release of the artificial intelligence (AI)-powered Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence (DAI) platform, which automates the testing of Salesforce deployments, helping to accelerate delivery and quality.

As environments grow more complex and interconnected, organisations need continuous test automation that is easy to integrate and scale. With Salesforce applications underpinning many business interactions, ensuring the performance of the software is vital. Keysight’s Eggplant DAI platform seamlessly connects with Salesforce and auto-generates and customises the assets and scripts needed to test any Lightning or Classic deployment. This intelligent automation ensures that the applications work exactly as users expect across platforms and devices.

Other new features added to Keysight’s Eggplant DAI platform include:

  • Bug hunting heatmap: This enables users to quickly identify failure hotspots and redirect testing efforts to these areas to find and fix any software flaws.
  • Enhanced security: Using the system’s local keychain to store and retrieve confidential information enhances encryption, reducing the risk of security vulnerabilities.
  • Test case visualisation: Users can now visualise their test cases, providing a quick and easy view of the paths covered during testing. This further accelerates the speed of testing.
  • Faster insights: User journey analytics are updated every 24 hours and presented in a dashboard covering an expanded range of data points. Organisations now have faster and more comprehensive insights into software quality.

“Salesforce is used pervasively across the globe and organisations can tap into our AI-powered platform to automate the testing, saving valuable time”, said Gareth Smith, General Manager at Eggplant. “This will accelerate the delivery of high-quality business applications, which is mission-critical in a digital-first world. These enhancements demonstrate our ability to intelligently automate every aspect of the testing lifecycle and deliver high-quality software at speed.”
