When it comes to business expansion strategy, fund raising tops the list. A leading provider of AI-driven test automation software, secures $5 million in series B funding and has a total of $12 million funding to develop and deploy AI-driven test technology across the world. The vision is to help engineering teams make application testing autonomous and continuous as part of their agile and DevOps cycles.

Previously, Appvance has led the move to AI-driven test generation with several industry firsts including first self-healing scripts for improving test execution using machine learning in 2016 (Level 3 autonomy), first automatically generated data-driven regression tests in 2017 (Level 4 autonomy) and first full validation suite for that validates everything autonomously in 2018 (Level 5 autonomy). Levels of autonomy in QA (0-5) are modeled after the SAE levels for driverless vehicles. Level 5 is true testing autonomy and unique to Appvance. The machine is capable of learning how the application works, what libraries it uses, and how to apply appropriate test data to investigate key functionalities and outcomes (validations). 19 unique machine learning algorithms work together, along with pre-built models, to understand application flows and outcomes.

The New-Age of Autonomous Testing

Appvance IQ's patent-pending machine learning technologies hold the speed record for legitimate data-driven script creation at 6000 unique scripts in ten minutes. It seamlessly integrates with tools such as Jenkins, TeamCity, CircleCI, TFS, GIT, and Jira, to name a few and executes deep continuous testing at every build and deployment. Furthermore, artificial intelligence capabilities are available for web-based and mobile web applications with all modern libraries including HTML5, AJAX, Angular 1 & 2, ReactJS, KendoUI, Polymer, ShadowDOM and many more.

Appvance IQ disrupts old model of testing, rendering most scripting and manual testing obsolete. Kevin Surace, CEO, Appvance asserts, “The influx of new investors and funding will be used to grow our implementation engineering team to support our clients as they expand the use of Appvance IQ across their enterprise. We continue to focus on large enterprises who have the resources and motivation to make major changes to their QA processes”.

Appvance, in partnership with dozens of enterprises around the world, has measured 90 percent reductions in QA time (versus scripting, maintaining and manual testing) and 20X improvements in real world test coverage. Headquartered in Sunnyvale with offices in Costa Rica and India, the company is revolutionizing the software QA process and transforming testing teams’ efficiency & output.
