Additional Remote WebDriver Support and MobileCloud API Enables Organizations to Achieve Continuous Quality Earlier in Development Cycle
BOSTON, MA – Perfecto Mobile, the world’s leader in mobile app quality, today announced its Continuous Quality Lab, an expanded offering that allows enterprises to deliver better mobile apps, faster. Powered by Perfecto Mobile’s MobileCloud , the Continuous Quality Lab gives users access to real end user conditions through a vast selection of real mobile devices connected to live networks in various locations around the world to leverage for testing and monitoring mobile apps throughout the mobile application development lifecycle. The Continuous Quality Lab is the only solution that supports testing processes earlier and more often throughout the entire mobile app development lifecycle, giving way to faster feedback and ultimately, improved time to market.
Leading the future of mobile app quality, the enterprise-grade lab meets the demands of a rapidly-evolving market and provides users with a tool-agnostic platform with freedom to select a preferred development language, IDE, automation engine, and continuous integration server of their choice.
The market is shifting focus and beginning to integrate quality throughout the entire mobile app development lifecycle, in order to increase development velocity and improve app quality. This shift brings testing earlier into the development lifecycle and requires a continuous approach to quality, linking to an app’s success. Perfecto Mobile’s Continuous Quality Lab is the only open solution that enables users to seamlessly test mobile apps, regardless of preferred IDE or programming language, with services ranging from manual testing, automated functional and non-functional testing, and proactive performance and monitoring. With the launch of the Continuous Quality Lab, Perfecto Mobile now offers a universal automation license that supports any type of automation tool or framework, giving teams full flexibility to leverage their existing skill sets and technology choices.
“The pressure on mobile app development and test teams to deliver better apps faster while managing quality, reducing risk, and improving time to market is forcing Dev/Test teams to adopt new practices that drive a paradigm shift towards Continuous Quality, or baking quality and testing into every step in the app lifecycle” said Roi Carmel, Senior Vice President of Product and Strategy. “Perfecto Mobile’s Continuous Quality Lab builds on the company’s expertise in the mobile app testing market and acts as the new generation of the previously offered MobileCloud, enabling organizations to accelerate their mobile app delivery without compromising the quality of their application.”
The Continuous Quality Lab offers developers, build managers, Dev/Test and Dev/Ops teams with the following benefits:
- Enterprise-grade Continuous Quality Lab: The state-of-the-art lab offers a stable, secure and consistent environment for enterprises delivered via the cloud and backed by Perfecto Mobile’s enterprise-grade SLAs
- Testing with Real End User Conditions: Ability to test on real devices and real networks as well as the ability to virtualize the environment
- Hybrid Cloud Model: Devices available on premises or in the cloud
- Infinite Elasticity: Ability to build a cloud for mobile app testing that suits your current needs, but is capable of growing with to accommodate future requirements
The Continuous Quality Lab currently has integrations to UFT, Calabash and Selenium, as well as the Jenkins CI server and many other CI servers. Perfecto Mobile is now adding support for Selenium’s Remote WebDriver, giving users the ability to execute test scripts in the Continuous Quality Lab with the utmost flexibility, using C#, Java, Ruby or any other language they choose. The Continuous Quality Lab will continue to add more capabilities to include support for every major IDE and language, every adopted CI technology, and every open source environment through its MobileCloud API.
