Currently, the entire testing industry is heavily tilted towards the dream of test environment elimination. All aspects of testing are slowly but steadily moving towards cloud adoption. Boom in software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, and huge popularity of digital means for doing business has exponentially increased the importance of automation and Devops in the field of testing. In a way, this shift aligns with the agile methodology which is the most popular development approach of today. To cope up with the globally dynamic changes, there is a burning need to move the test environments on cloud and come up with an integrated system. This would also lead to an elevated demand of crowd testing as the environments would be accessible online across the globe and testing no-longer would be dependent on in-house teams. Another rising trend is artificial intelligence (AI) and codeless testing; the next level of automation. Moreover, it is about how automated can the testing community become in order to ensure that the user systems remain bug free.
LambdaTest is one of the leading, cross browser testing platform where individuals can test their web applications across 2000+ different browser and operating system combinations. Users get on demand access to the browser environment of their choice to test their app for compatibility. Each environment is running on real machines with operating systems and browsers. At LambdaTest, customers can also take automated full page screenshots across all its environments to quickly test layout, check in a single click as how the user website will look across 36 different devices, as well as compare design and HTML images. In addition, the LambdaTest platform also has a single click integration with popular project management and enterprise tools like Jira, Asana, Trello, Github, Gitlab, BitBucket, Slack and Visual Studio team services.
Transformation Leader Behind LambdaTest
The Founder of LambdaTest, Asad Khan is a notable personality in the field of testing. He started his career as a tester at Global Logic and then moved on to start his own testing company, 360Logica, which focused on providing cutting edge testing services to enterprises. The company grew to a strength of 300 people and had a clientele of brands like Walmart, Target, Xamarin and many more. His hands-on experience in the field of enterprise testing made him realize the need of an integrated software testing platform that is both scalable as well as flexible enough to assist developers to perform all types of testing. This was the main inspiration behind LambdaTest. Asad and his team started this dream by launching a scalable browser compatibility testing platform, LambdaTest. The platform allows developers and testers to test their web apps in the operating systems and browsers that they do not have access to in-house.

Asad’s Key Advice for the Aspiring Entrepreneurs
“My experience says that it is very important to understand the trends in the market and at the same time, energy should be focused on solving the real time problems instead of going after buzzwords. If you are interested around development and testing domain, then it’s important to understand the shift towards codeless automation, cloud testing, test environment elimination, benefits of infrastructure as a service, and the future prospects of implementing AI in the field of development. Visualize where the industry is going to be in the coming years and lead it from there.”
