SD Times news digest: Sauce Labs’ new shift-left capabilities, Nintex Workflow Cloud launched, CircleCI privacy enhancements

by Joseph K. Clark

Sauce Labs announced new shift-left capabilities such as further end-to-end visual testing and Sauce Testrunner, which supports a host of developer-preferred test frameworks such as Cypress, Playwright, and TestCafe. 

“Successful testing in the DevOps era is about giving developers the optionality and flexibility to work within the frameworks with which they’re most comfortable, and about giving them the ability to harness and understand the different test signals proliferating throughout the dev cycle,” said Matt Wyman, chief product officer at Sauce Labs.


The end-to-end testing also enables users to compare screenshots and DOM snapshots to visual changes, automatically pull in the initial baseline, accept updates, and integrate seamlessly into CI/CD processes. 

Nintex Workflow Cloud launched.

The company’s workflow automation cloud platform includes advanced data technology, added functionality, and pre-built connectors to faster automate and optimize enterprise-grade workflows. 

Pre-built dashboards and widgets provide immediate insights into workflows and automated processes with easy-to-use data visualization and new functionality such as Repeating Sections, Draft Forms Save and Continue, and Multiple Approvers. 

“We are committed to delivering process management, automation, and optimization technology that improves how people work and provides competitive advantages for every organization that standardizes on Nintex,” said Neal Gottsacker, chief of product at Nintex. “By seamlessly integrating Nintex Workflow Cloud with Nintex Analytics, our customers and partners benefit from a robust data infrastructure that reports on workflows across an organization’s entire Nintex deployment.”

CircleCI privacy enhancements 

CircleCI announced private orbs, which help developers automate repeated processes with reusable packages of YAML configurations to assist with use-cases such as vulnerability scanning and test coverage of applications. Developers also now can create private orbs to allow teams to share designs within their organization. 

CircleCI also helps users ensure their pipelines are secure via added product security features, including environment variables, multiple contexts, and admin controls.

research 2.0 released

research 2.0 enables customers to build modern applications with interactive search experiences. Users can automatically index and then query their Redis datasets without changing their application. 

With the latest release, users can also scale RediSearch quickly and can be deployed in a globally distributed manner by leveraging Redis Enterprise’s Active-Active technology. 

“research now enables organizations to quickly build indexes that require low latency querying and full-text search. All of this is delivered with the familiar ease of scaling and speed of Redis,” said Pieter Cailliau, director of product management at Redis Labs.
