Sauce Labs has announced a significant upgrade to its Jenkins Sauce OnDemand plugin. The new enhancements are designed to improve utilization of the Jenkins Continuous Integration (CI) system and provide support for more efficient application testing.
Because enterprises are under extreme pressure to deliver better software, faster, development teams are transitioning to new software delivery processes such as Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD). Both practices have proven their value in accelerating software production beyond traditional approaches, yet effectively integrating automated testing into these processes is often the most difficult hurdle.

Sauce Labs offers a high-performance automated testing platform with more than 250 million test runs to date, and is optimized for CI/CD workflows. The Jenkins Sauce OnDemand plugin offers developers the combined power of the Sauce platform with Jenkins CI, the world's leading CI tool, to further streamline and accelerate the development process.

"Today's release demonstrates Sauce Labs' commitment to driving fast and effective software development," said Lubos Parobek, vice president of product, Sauce Labs. "This Jenkins Plugin brings enhanced features to make CI processes more effective and easier than ever. By combining the power of our Sauce Labs automated testing platform with Jenkins CI, our users are poised for DevOps success."

"Continuous integration and continuous delivery play a strategic role in helping enterprise DevOps teams deliver more quality software, faster," said Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder and CTO at CloudBees. "It's exciting that the ecosystem of Jenkins continues to expand and that the users get the best tools and integrations. Sauce is a popular service in this space. In fact, the community has used it to test Jenkins."

Sauce Labs currently supports more than 500 browser, operating system and device platform combinations, and offers integrations with the most popular CI platforms including: Jenkins, Bamboo, Travis CI, Circle CI and TeamCity.

"Companies are transitioning from traditional methods of software development to modern agile tools and have adopted CI and CD to deliver higher quality software faster, to match the needs of today's 'always on' business," said Terri Avnaim, VP of marketing, Sauce Labs. "Sauce Labs provides the most secure and reliable cloud-based testing platform in the market."
