Gartner Names Rainforest QA “Cool Vendor” for Application Development

“Manual QA testing is costly – in many ways – resulting in bottlenecks that slow development teams down and stifle innovation. We are delighted that Gartner recognizes our inventive approach to solving this huge problem,” said Fred Stevens-Smith, CEO of Rainforest QA. “Dev and QA teams deserve more. There’s been so little innovation in the QA space that it’s very exciting that Gartner considers Rainforest a key innovator in Application Development.”

Rainforest QA provides value by enabling manual testing to be done at the speed of automation, via human testers drawn from a massive, crowdsourced talent pool, offering large sets of test results quickly and easily. Rainforest’s modern subscription pricing model, or “QA-as-a-Service,” makes it convenient for DevOps teams to implement Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) and ship quality code faster, with a reduced risk of releasing bugs.
