Functionize Technology Advantages

Functionize Test Cloud

With the rise of cloud, big data, and machine learning, companies need to re-think their testing strategies beyond on-premise solutions and their scalability issues.

Functionize goes well beyond conventional test recording tools to perform exhaustive and intuitive testing of highly complex applications across multiple environments, including both desktop and mobile platforms.  

The Functionize Test Cloud does the heavy lifting in software development, eliminating the need for teams to manage any testing infrastructure. Simply point it towards your app and watch thousands of tests automatically spin up in parallel, across any device, all over the globe, all in a matter of minutes. It never quits working, making your tests more stable with each run. You get immediate alerts when your application isn’t performing as it should, giving you immediate answers to failing tests. The Functionize Test Cloud discovers anomalies that will give your team confidence that your product is ready for launch and integration into CI/CD tools.

Visual Testing

Functionize’s visual testing validates complex and dynamic page renderings so customers don’t become your de facto QA.  Powered by Adaptive Event AnalysisTM, Functionize discerns visual changes that are relevant by contextualizing an entire page layout versus a pixel by pixel approach.

Functionize uses computer vision to learn what your screens and objects actually look like and where all the parts should be. So it knows what’s ‘visually normal’ and flags what isn’t. It also collects snapshots to document visual screen changes, making finding and mitigating visual issues fast and easy.

Functionize can use its visual read of page contents to adapt existing tests — self-healing them around code changes or application/framework dynamics that might make DOM code look different (breaking conventional scripts) but leave its appearance alone. The result is huge savings in maintenance time and costs.

Cross Browser Testing

Maintaining tests across different browsers has historically required significant manual efforts across large QA teams. Not anymore. Functionize abstracts your browser cross-compatibility headache. Once a functional test is executed in Chrome, the same test suite can be executed across all other supported browsers in minutes. No more uploading your SE Code to a browser stack – simply choose the browser and platforms you want to test against.

Performance & Load Testing

Customers have less tolerance today than ever before for websites that are slow and error-prone. Functionize ensures that your website is ready for high traffic demands.

Once a functional test is executed, Functionize provides both performance and load insights without any additional steps.

Performance data that reflects what a real user would see: 

In-depth performance data and detailed analysis of trending data

State-of-the-art visual rendering of your app

Load testing that’s created by executing functional tests against your website, at cloud scales using designated regions across the globe

Traffic that is realistic and indicative of real users

Load analysis of complex and real workflows vs simple page loads

Mobile Testing

90% of today’s websites are now seeing more mobile than desktop traffic. Functionize eliminates the high costs of maintaining a complex device inventory by letting you perform robust, fully-automated, machine-vision and AI-enhanced testing on natively-emulated mobile and desktop browsers — scaling on demand via Google Compute Engine and GCE nested virtualization.

Cloud Infrastructure

With today’s test suites having hundreds or thousands of cases, and applications becoming increasingly complex, you need high scale QA capability on demand.

By moving from on-prem scripting tools, like Selenium, to Functionize’s cloud-based SaaS solution, your test suites execute with speed and get more stable with every execution.
