ATLANTA, April 2024Katalon is a leading provider of the most modern, comprehensive software quality management platform. The company announced that it was named as a Representative Vendor in the 2024 Gartner® Market Guide for AI-Augmented Software Testing Tools for the second year in a row. 

Katalon empowers globally known brands to achieve top-level digital experiences through its AI-augmented testing tools for web, mobile, API, desktop, and application suites. Utilized by teams in over 70 countries and 55 companies on the Fortune 500, Katalon’s software quality management platform delivers comprehensive lifecycle support, encompassing test planning, creation, management, execution, and analysis of automated user journey tests, alongside AI-powered visual testing features. 

In the report, Gartner highlighted factors that will drive the rapid adoption of AI-augmented software-testing tools in the next two to three years including:

  • “An existing and ever-increasing backlog of work to replace manual tests with automated tests that support continuous delivery of software.”
  • “A shortage of skilled test automation engineers to close this automation backlog.”
  • “The need to reduce test operation and maintenance costs associated with traditional tools and open-source system (OSS) solutions.”


Among the Gartner report’s key findings and recommendations:

  • “By 2027, 80% of enterprises will have integrated AI-augmented testing tools into their software engineering toolchain, which is a significant increase from approximately 15% in early 2023.” 
  • “Maximize the value of AI-augmented software-testing tools by identifying areas of software testing where AI will be most impactful to the organization. For example, it may prove useful for generating test cases directly from user stories.”
  • “Increase implementation success in complex, multinational organizations by allowing for the use of focused solutions that are optimized for solving specific testing problems, such as optimizing existing regression sets.”

“In today's development environment, AI is no longer just a luxury for testing teams — it's a necessity for them to keep pace with business demands,” said Katalon CEO Vu Lam. “We believe, our inclusion in the Gartner Market Guide for the second year highlights our ongoing efforts to provide advanced, AI-powered solutions that address the critical challenges faced by our customers. We remain focused on innovating and evolving our platform to meet the ever-changing needs of the software industry, enabling our users to stay ahead in a highly competitive market.”
