Keysight Technologies, Inc. and Eggplant, the digital automation intelligence specialist, announced that Keysight has completed the acquisition of Eggplant from The Carlyle Group.
Eggplant is an industry leading software test automation platform provider that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics to automate test creation and test execution. Eggplant's Digital Automation Intelligence platform can test any technology on any device, operating system or browser at any layer, from the user interface (UI) to application programming interfaces (APIs) to the database.
With today's digital revolution, software content and value has grown exponentially. Smart and interconnected products are enabled by millions of lines of code. Businesses must accelerate their digital transformation to remain competitive and relevant, while continuing to support legacy platforms. The ever-growing scale and breadth of testing required for digital products is increasing complexity and thus time-to-market. By using artificial intelligence and analytics to automate testing, Eggplant enables improved software application development velocity and enhanced quality, driving competitive advantage and differentiation. The company's customers span a wide range of sectors overlapping Keysight's existing customer base while expanding software test opportunities into new end-markets.
The combination of Keysight and Eggplant brings together two complementary companies to create an innovative force in the automated software test market across the physical and protocol layers and into the application layers. The acquisition enables bi-directional leverage of measurement technologies between both companies, resulting in increased solution differentiation in the expanded offering.
