SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2015) - Sauce Labs, Inc., the leading cloud-based web and application testing platform, today announced that its customers have executed more than 250 million tests on its secure and reliable automated testing infrastructure.

As evidenced by Sauce Labs' growth, the software testing market is rapidly shifting to cloud-based, SaaS solutions for automated testing as more and more companies adopt Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) methodologies. Virtually every enterprise is now in the software business and the ability to offer better quality apps, more quickly, is critical to maintaining a competitive advantage.
