Expanding HaloAI Footprint, SmartBear Boosts Code Quality through Transformative Automation

API contract testing solution PactFlow and testing tool TestComplete feature trusted AI-driven technology, SmartBear HaloAI


SOMERVILLE, Mass., 2024-Jul-10 — /EPR Network/ — SmartBear, a leading provider of software quality and visibility solutions, has launched two innovations that fundamentally change how both API and functional tests are performed, integrating SmartBear HaloAI, trusted AI-driven technology, and marking a significant step forward in the company’s AI strategy. GenAI technology, known for automating repetitive and error-prone tasks, enhances efficiency and reduces manual intervention, revolutionizing traditional software development and testing methods. According to Gartner®, “By 2025, 75% of developers will use generative AI to learn new software development skills.”[1]


“Our product development goal is to revolutionize software quality for our customers through smart automation built into our popular tools,” said Dan Faulkner, Chief Product Officer at SmartBear. “Customers face ongoing downward pressure on quality with expectations for speedier releases, resource constraints, and adoption of AI development tools that generate code quality challenges. This latest launch of HaloAI featured in our API contract testing and functional testing is all about our commitment to enable organizations to produce high quality, reliable software more efficiently at a time when it is needed more than ever.”


New Solutions Featuring HaloAI:

  • PactFlow’s AI-Augmented Contract Testing uses HaloAI to automate the creation and maintenance of API contract tests, seamlessly integrating with developer tools, accelerating development, reducing costs, and maintaining current tests with ongoing code changes.


  • TestComplete’s AI Test Data Generation enables the generation of extensive, customized data sets through simple commands, catering to the nuanced needs of regulated industries. This streamlines workflows and improves the quality of code and test data.


“The expanded integration of HaloAI across SmartBear’s hubs not only enhances its product offerings but also cements its leadership in AI-driven development,” said Francisco Moreno Sanz, Principal Quality Engineer at Sngular. “With HaloAI powering the creation of API contract tests, SmartBear API Hub will allow us to accelerate development cycles, ensure our APIs are always up to date, and significantly boost developer productivity and code quality.”


These enhancements are just the beginning of SmartBear’s broader strategy to embed AI throughout its customers’ development pipeline, ensuring software teams have access to cutting-edge technologies that drive significant productivity gains and operational efficiencies.
