Perfecto Mobile Introduces an Integrated Mobile App Quality Platform for Visual Studio
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™
Mobile App Quality Platform, today announced at the Microsoft
Build Developer Conference, a public preview of the MobileCloud for
Visual Studio Plugin that enables teams to successfully test their
mobile apps on real devices, inside Microsoft's (News - Alert) Visual Studio. By
extending Visual Studio with the MobileCloud™ Platform, development/test
teams now have the ability to execute manual and automated tests on real
mobile devices deployed around the world, directly from Visual Studio.
Teams are able to use the familiar C# language and fully manage device
automation control with Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS).
Today, the pursuit of delivering better mobile apps faster is driving
development/test teams to test earlier and more frequently. This
solution offers a significant jump start for .NET (News - Alert) web teams
transitioning to mobile, teams launching new responsive design projects,
and teams scaling the mobile app development and testing processes. By
utilizing the MobileCloud™ Platform, Visual Studio users can leverage
existing expertise and write automation tests in C# that are executable
across any mobile operating system (Android (News - Alert), iOS, Windows Phone) or app
style (web, native, hybrid), all with a single test script. Users have
instant and always-available access to globally distributed real devices
to support testing throughout the code-build-test cycle.
"The pressure to accelerate both mobile app delivery and iterative bug
fixes is driving organizations to adopt agile development. Too often,
though, this need for speed compromises quality. Successful
organizations are seeing the future and are investing in technology that
enables testing o real devices, mobile-ready continuous integration and
test automation," said Eran Yaniv, CEO, Perfecto Mobile (News - Alert). "The new
MobileCloud for Visual Studio solution provides always-available
devices-as-a-service and mobile-ready automation directly from within
Visual Studio. Combined, these two capabilities deliver cross-platform
mobile app testing that is fully managed by TFS. The bottom line is that
our enterprise customers have immediate access to better feedback,
enabling their Visual Studio teams to meet the pressure for high-speed
app delivery without compromising quality. The concept of 'Shift testing
left' is now achievable."
"Perfecto Mobile's Mobile App Quality Platform is a valuable complement
to Microsoft's suite of mobile development, testing and ALM tools," said
Mitra Azizirad, General Manager, Developer Tools Marketing and Sales at
Microsoft. "By providing extensive mobile test coverage with its
globally distributed, mobile device cloud, MobileCloud™ for Visual
Studio empowers development and test teams to deliver better mobile apps
faster and meet customers' quality expectations."
Following are the different benefits available from the MobileCloud for
the Visual Studio solution:
Accelerate Testing - Teams can execute unattended automated
testing on remote iOS, Android and Windows Phone (News - Alert) apps without
requiring USB connections or driver downloads. System level control of
devices under test enables full interoperability testing (e.g. call,
text, change settings)
Get started fast - Teams can utilize their existing expertise
in Visual Studio, C# and Selenium WebDriver and leverage an extended
package of functions for common mobile testing tasks (install app,
insert text/URL, device reboot).
Anytime Access to Real Devices Inside Visual Studio -
Teams have direct access to a scalable, globally distributed,
cloud-based mobile device platform.
Continuous Integration (CI) Ready - Teams can use CI with real
devices to deliver better feedback faster. It enables developers to
build, deploy and test on real off-the-shelf devices every build
cycle, capturing results in TFS.
