Leapwork, an end-to-end no-code test automation solution for enterprises, today announced that it has been recognized in the 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for AI-Augmented Software Testing Tools.

Gartner predicts: "By 2027, 80% of enterprises will have integrated artificial intelligence (AI)-augmented testing tools into their software engineering toolchain, which is a significant increase from 10% in 2022."

Key findings from the report include:

  • "AI augmentation is the next step in the evolution of software testing. Itis also a crucial element for a strategy to reduce significant business continuity risks when critical applications and services are severely compromised or stop working altogether."
  • "Artificial-intelligence-augmented software-testing tools use algorithmic approaches toenhance theproductivity of testers.AI can dramatically increase theefficacyof test automation tools, enabling software engineering teams to improve software quality and reduce testing cycle times."
  • "Software engineering leaders face a shortage of experienced testers, especially people with the skills required toprogrammaticallycreate tests."

Gartner recommends that software engineering leaders responsible for software quality and testing should:

  • "Maximize the value of AI by identifying areas of software testing in their organizations,where AI will be most applicable and impactful, such as in visualtesting."
  • "Use this research to evaluate vendors that offer AI-augmented, software-testing toolsby requesting evidence for how they can improve efficacy in each specific area of software testing."
  • "Modernize their teams' testing capabilities by establishing a community of practice to share information and budgeting for training."
