SmartBear Acquires Bitbar to Enhance its Mobile Test Automation Offering

SmartBear has acquired Bitbar, provider of the world's most advanced mobile app test automation platform and device cloud. In addition to SmartBear's flagship products, SoapUI, TestComplete, and Zephyr, Bitbar extends our ability to empower organizations to deliver higher quality software faster.

Bitbar offers the highest level of performance and scalability and is the most configurable among mobile app test platforms, allowing you to more easily integrate with your CI/CD pipelines. Bitbar also aligns with SmartBear's longstanding support of open source technology with their support for popular open source frameworks used by developers (such as XCUITest and Espresso) and QA automation engineers (such as Appium). Simply put, Bitbar lets customers do things they can't do with other solutions, making it the clear choice to bring into the SmartBear family.

The need to deliver high quality mobile apps and web applications across operating systems, browsers, desktops, and devices has never been bigger, and to meet this challenge, organizations are looking to accelerate their automation rates to keep up with rapidly changing business demands.

SmartBear will help customers address this challenge by offering them the combination of BitBar and our CrossBrowserTesting solution, a best in class test automation device cloud for web applications.
