Award program recognizes the leaders in the software development space, and this year, Applitools brings visual UI testing to the community. 

SD Times 100 Awards

Recently, SD Times, the leading monthly magazine for Software and Development Managers, DevOps teams, Test & QA professionals and CIO’s announced their annual SD Times 100 awards, and Applitools was named a “Best in Show” for the software testing category.

We spoke to David Rubinstein, editor of SD Times, back in February about the most recent updates to Applitools Eyes and the introduction of Application Visual Management (AVM), and then again in April, once we closed our latest funding round. It has been a pleasure to work with the SD Times team and we always appreciate the opportunity to share our insights for what lies ahead in the ever-exciting world of software development.

We’d like to give a special shout out to the other innovative companies recognized in the testing category: Eggplant, Mobile Labs, Parasoft, Perfecto, Rainforest QA, Test IO and Tricentis.

Background on the SD Times 100

According to the editors of SD Times, they identified the industry’s top leaders, innovators and influencers, and broke them out into 10 separate industry segments. Some companies lead in one category, others in more than one. In each category, one company has been spotlighted as a star deserving of special notice.

When choosing the SD Times 100, the editors carefully considered each company’s offerings and reputation. They also listened for the “buzz”— how much attention and conversation we’ve heard around the company and its products and technologies — as a sign of leadership within the industry.

The SD Times 100 judges looked for companies that have determined a direction that developers followed. Did the company set the industry agenda? Did its products and services advance the software development art? Were its competitors nervously tracking its moves? Were programmers anxiously awaiting its developments? Those qualities mark a leader.

Subjective? Of course. But leadership and innovation can’t be measured by stock valuations or analyst reports. The SD Times 100 represents what we believe to be the best of the best…

We felt an immense sense of pride being included in the SD Times 100 for the first time. Looking back on where Applitools started to where we are now, none of it would be possible without the hard work, dedication and incredible tenacity of our employees, partners and most importantly – our customers. What we’ve seen growing at our organization over the past few years is nothing short of amazing, and to have this independent and well-respected third-party look at what we’ve accomplished and say, “That’s award-worthy,” — well, that really means something.
