Automation Anywhere ( ( ), a global leader in automation software, today announced the newest version of Testing Anywhere. Testing Anywhere first launched in December, 2009 and is being adopted by large system integrators and other software development teams looking for significantly better efficiencies and quality around automated software testing ( tin g-anywhere.htm) .

"We've been using Testing Anywhere's new Object Avatar and believe there is nothing else like it in the market today. It is changing the way we do our application testing," Stephen Clancy, QATools Development of Healthways. "We found that using Object Avatar for test automation significantly reduces the amount of time we spend in updating and creating scripts. This is a great time saver. The global repository should help keep us all on the same page."

"One of the testing challenges our customers have repeatedly talked about is the time and energy it takes to test and re-test objects with live applications -- a process that can take days and weeks with larger, complicated live applications," said Mihir Shukla, co-founder and CEO of Automation Anywhere. "We took a step back and came up with an innovative approach that we think will change the way people conduct their application testing. Instead of testing the live application, we create a repository of application Object Avatars that allow for faster, more efficient automated testing."

Introducing Object AvatarTesting Anywhere's Object Avatar ( .ht m) is a new object-based testing tool that significantly reduces development and modification time. This approach means users don't have to re-record test cases with each object change and there is no need to access a live application to create or modify test cases.

Object Avatar 1) Captures each object and application screen in a test case in the form of an Object Avatar 2) Accesses these Object Avatars to create and modify tests without access to the live application 3) Reduces development and modification times with constant access to live objects
