LambdaTest Adds More Intuitive Features to Its End-to-End Test Orchestration Platform HyperExecute


New features like job scheduling, job archiving, detailed test history, and support for Tricentis Tosca are now live on HyperExecute

NOIDA, India & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)-- LambdaTest, an intelligent omnichannel digital experience testing cloud platform, has added a host of new features to its end-to-end test execution and orchestration platform HyperExecute. Users can now get deeper insights and ensure better decision-making while also increasing their release velocity with HyperExecute.

With the framework and language-agnostic HyperExecute, QA and development teams can now move from ‘how to test’ to ‘what to test’. It also comes with flexible deployment options.

Now, with the new feature ‘test history’, testers will get complete historical test execution context on how a particular test case has been behaving for the last 20 executions. This helps teams figure out whether the failure in a test case is of value or if it has been failing frequently, giving an important insight into the test case.

On the ‘job’ front, with ‘job scheduling’, users can simply direct HyperExecute to the jobs that have to be executed at their preferred time and let HyperExecute do the rest. Teams can set multiple schedules for a project. Finally, with ‘job archiving’, development teams can archive jobs that are not of importance and can even refer to them later.

HyperExecute has also added support for Tricentis Tosca. Users, in order to distribute their Tosca test cases, can set up the project via HyperExecute and run the execution lists directly from the HyperExecute platform. HyperExecute spins up Just-in-Time testing environments for the scripts and is able to automatically distribute them to be run in parallel.

“Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and customers expect faster innovation from companies. However, software testing velocity is a roadblock. A continuous test execution and orchestration platform that is fast, reliable, secure, and scalable is the need for businesses today. HyperExecute is the answer. We are continuously looking for ways to enhance HyperExecute. Our aim is to be the go-to digital highway for testing,” said Mayank Bhola, Co-founder and Head of Products, LambdaTest. “Also, we have a refreshing new feel to the product. With the added features, HyperExecute will be able to do a lot more heavy lifting and free up the time of QAs and developers that can be better used for other important tasks.”

LambdaTest has also announced the launch of its digital experience testing cloud for enterprises. The offering will enable enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation by providing a best-in-class, 360-degree test execution and orchestration platform coupled with insightful test analytics and customizable deployment options–public cloud, single tenant, or on-premise.

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- OpSec Group, a global leader in brand protection solutions and intellectual property (IP) management, and Investcorp Europe Acquisition Corp I (Nasdaq: IVCB) (“Investcorp Europe”), a special purpose acquisition company, today announced they have entered into a definitive business combination agreement that would result in OpSec Group becoming a public company. Upon closing of the proposed business combination, the newly combined company will operate as OpSec Group.

Company Overview

OpSec Group is a global leader in the management and protection of brands and intellectual property. It helps enterprises optimize, monetize, and protect the value of their identities, ideas, and assets through a range of technology-enabled services, products and solutions. Approximately 5,000 of the world’s most recognized brands across media and technology, sports and apparel, and consumer and industrial products, as well as governments and financial institutions, trust OpSec to help realize the value and ensure the integrity of their physical and digital IP and brand portfolios, from trademarks and technology to products and content. OpSec is currently a portfolio company managed by Investcorp Technology Partners, which is an affiliate of Investcorp Europe’s sponsor, and after the proposed business combination a fund managed by a member within Investcorp Europe’s parent company, Investcorp Holdings B.S.C., will continue to hold a controlling economic and voting interest.

On April 18, 2023, OpSec Group acquired Zacco, a leading intellectual property management and protection company, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Bringing with it both a significant heritage and a pioneering approach to IP, Zacco has focused on helping customers build and maintain their brand ideas, identity, and technology within a conventional IP framework. OpSec Group will combine the respective strengths of the two businesses to help customers maximize the value of their IP portfolios, take advantage of new opportunities, and counter vulnerabilities and threats that these may bring.

For the combined OpSec Group, which includes Zacco, pro-forma fiscal 2023 revenue is expected to be approximately $218 million. As a percentage of total, 95% of OpSec’s total revenue is reoccurring and based on established contractual relationships. OpSec Group has a strong track record in client service and quality with approximately 90% retention annually across a base of more than 5,000 customers. In combination with these strong revenue dynamics, EBITDA margins have expanded from fiscal 2021 through fiscal 2023.

Over the company’s multi-decade history, OpSec Group has grown into a market leader in brand protection and IP management, through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. OpSec operates across six principal market segments including:

  1. IP portfolio management includes advisory and managed services across the IP lifecycle, from undertaking IP portfolio audits, strategies, and registrations, to related IP and digital services such as validations, renewals, monitoring, and digital asset management.

  2. Brand solutions includes licensing, merchandising, brand enhancement, and product traceability. It typically combines physical products, such as security labels or apparel trim, with software that underpins licensing programs and supply chain or channel compliance.

  3. Online brand protection includes technology enabled services to detect and enforce against trademark infringements, notably counterfeit selling and imitation of brand identity, and damage to reputation that can result from fraudulent impersonation of brands.

  4. Online media protection includes technology enabled services to detect and enforce against online infringements of copyrighted digital media, in particular video and music.

  5. Transaction cards includes high security authentication features for payment cards, which are specified by the owners of global payment networks and applied by the card issuers.

  6. Government solutions includes indirect taxation schemes for controlled products, such as alcohol and tobacco, as well as government issued identity and other official documents.

“OpSec Group was founded with the mission to become a leader in brand protection and enhancement,” said Dr. Selva Selvaratnam, CEO of OpSec Group. “Our aim is to bring innovation to the way in which enterprises create and safeguard the significant intangible value that is embodied in their brands and products. With the global value of counterfeiting and piracy estimated at $2.8 trillion in 2022, the threat posed by the imitators, content pirates, and fraudsters is profound, and looks set to increase further given continued growth in e-commerce, online content, and social media. Creating, nurturing, and protecting intellectual property and brand identities in this environment has unquestionably become one of the defining priorities for leading enterprises. We are thrilled to partner with Investcorp Europe to expand our presence in this arena and take advantage of the growth opportunity ahead.”

At OpSec Group, materials scientists, optical engineers, and product designers work alongside IP professionals, investigators, online analysts, and software engineers. Its global team of approximately 1,300 people work to ensure the integrity of brands and their IP around the world, operating from secure production facilities, design labs, service hubs, and a security operations center. Innovation is at the heart of OpSec Group, with a strong emphasis on engineering talent and a roadmap of compelling new products, services, and solutions.

“All of us at Investcorp Europe are incredibly excited to be partnering with OpSec Group on this transaction. Selva and the impressive OpSec Group leadership team have deep expertise across all aspects of IP and brand optimization, monetization and protection,” said Baroness Ruby McGregor-Smith C.B.E., CEO of Investcorp Europe. “They have built a solid offering that safeguards some of the world’s most iconic brands, and I believe that OpSec Group is very well positioned to deliver long-term value for all stakeholders.”

“Our objective since founding Investcorp Europe has been to both identify and assist a company in its transition to the public markets and perhaps more importantly to introduce a differentiated opportunity that Investcorp Europe believes would be compelling and attractive to our shareholders,” said Hazem Ben-Gacem, Chairman of Investcorp Europe and also a Co-CEO at Investcorp Holdings B.S.C. “We believe the OpSec Group represents a great opportunity to invest in a truly global, category defining leader in the brand protection and enhancement fields, and that the structure of this transaction will position this business to have the opportunity to execute on an even broader scale.”
