World Quality Report 2013: Quality-awareness in the IT sector increases
The fifth World Quality Report published September 2013 by Capgemini, Sogeti and HP reveals that application Testing and Quality Assurance (QA) has become increasingly important to organizations. While in 2012 about 18 percent of the total IT budget was spent on average on QA, the percentage has grown to up to a quarter of the budget in 2013. German businesses are still at the forefront of quality maturity. The report further indicates that increasing complexity of test-architectures and their handling still pose difficulties.

Quality First Software GmbH is well-established in the IT testing market. QF-Test, the professional tool for test automation of applications with a graphical user interface, is successfully used by more than 600 customers from 50 different countries. Cross-platform, cross-browser and easy-to-use are just some of the strengths that characterize "The Java and Web GUI test tool".

QF-Test provides easy to use capture/replay for efficient recording of test cases for Java GUIs (Swing, JavaFX, SWT, Eclipse plug-ins and RCP, ULC, Web Start, applets) and web-based applications (HTML5, AJAX, GWT, ExtGWT, ExtJS, ICEfaces, PrimeFaces, Qooxdoo, RAP, RichFaces, Vaadin, ZK). Advanced options like structuring and modularization strongly increase the reusability of system tests and thus reduce the maintenance effort. Expert functions like scripting in Jython or Groovy enable access beyond the user interface. With its focus on regression testing, QF-Test is also applicable as a driver for load test automation.
