ACCELQ makes its way to the top tier of test automation suites for modern testers. A new entrant in the Forrester Wave, ACCELQ has a strong management team that built a suite on the cloud from the ground up and integrates a seamless test management and codeless automation capability. ACCELQ’s powerful Universe visual environment provides a modular description approach for testers to create scenarios that directly relate to the components of an application and the business processes.
It has most of the modern features we expect: self-healing capabilities at the UI level, bots for real-time path analysis to identify change impacts, smart UI element handling and Document Object Model management, NLP-like capabilities in lieu of scripting, and test planning & management.
These also align with the needs of testing management in pipelines in Agile-plus-DevOps environments. It’s a versatile tool for many contexts, both packaged and custom, with a strong Salesforce partnership that serves much of its core client base. It mainly addresses mobile testing through the Browser Stack partnership but is planning a native solution. To keep its leadership position, the vendor will have to address other gaps like integrating a shift-left performance testing (SLPT) capability in the suite.
ACCELQ is a strong choice, especially for Salesforce customers. A reference client mentioned the innovation ACCELQ brings to the table,
