Added capabilities support fundamental market shift, enabling DevOps teams to automate to meet velocity objectives
BOSTON, April 10, 2018 — Perfecto, the leading continuous testing and monitoring platform for optimizing DevOps pipelines, today announced its Continuous Quality Lab for web, mobile, and IoT testing now supports Amazon Fire TV. Developers and DevOps teams can now accelerate release velocity making new features available on apps specifically for the popular Amazon TV platform.
Over-the-top (OTT) platforms are redefining what it means to watch TV and how consumers can engage with their large screens. Consumers are increasingly watching their favorite shows on streaming services instead of the live initial broadcast. By 2021, reports estimate that 194.4 million U.S. consumers will use connected TVs at least once every month, which is almost 58 percent of the population.
OTT devices are creating new opportunities for streaming media and gaming providers. By leveraging the Android operating system, Amazon Fire TV opens multiple monetization options including Subscription and Transactional models, Ads, and In-app purchasing options. In this competitive market, development teams are focused on bringing new innovations that enhance the user experience. Perfecto’s Fire TV support is helping teams seize the market opportunities by enabling DevOps teams to implement continuous testing to meet the velocity objectives. Perfecto provides them with the only cloud-based platform for web, mobile, and IoT software testing.
“As content providers explore new business models created by OTT devices and presented through the Google Play Store, user experience will be a defining success factor,” said Roi Carmel, chief strategy officer at Perfecto. “The growth of OTT platforms provides new user engagement models to the large screen via enhanced interfaces. Perfecto is continually expanding our supported platforms to bring the end user experience right into the development environment with our cloud-based testing lab to help teams accelerate delivery.”
Perfecto’s support of Amazon Fire TV is complemented by existing capabilities offering developers and DevOps teams the following benefits:
- Automated testing optimized for the real world by defining user condition profiles, and by enabling testing across common scenarios such as degraded network conditions, constrained memory and handling notifications, and pop-ups.
- User condition testing utilizing Wind Tunnel™ and visual validation including measuring responsiveness.
- OS software testing defines test coverage for running different Android OS software.
