Perfecto Mobile Unveils Mobile Application Performance Testing in the Cloud
Perfecto Mobile announced the availability of its new cloud-based mobile application Performance product - MobileCloud Performance™. The new solution enhances Perfecto Mobile’s integrated mobile quality suite with end-to-end capabilities, which now include remote manual testing, functional automation and performance testing, as well as a comprehensive range of integrations to leading development, testing and ALM platforms. MobileCloud Performance provides enterprises with business critical insights to end-user experiences in simulated real-world conditions using real devices and networks.
“Mobile applications are becoming the direct channel to reaching the customer and are one of the most valuable and vulnerable points of contact. End users have come to expect a flawless experience, and the penalty for poor performance is harsh and swift. As a result, enterprises are under pressure to launch a mobile application that exceeds high customer expectations, not only for usability and functionality, but also the user demands for quick response time and availability,” said Eran Yaniv, CEO, Perfecto Mobile. “Accurate and relevant mobile performance testing can only be done using real devices where traditional network testing fails to reflect the true end-user experience. Every device handles and reacts differently to varying network conditions and load conditions, due to utilization of limited native resources (such as CPU, memory and battery life). As mobile applications become mission-critical for organizations, the need for optimal application performance increases.”
With 67 percent of enterprises today rating efficiency of performance as their top priority for mobile testing activity (World Quality Report), measuring the mobile end user experience in real world conditions is imperative. After building, and functionally testing their applications, developers can now use Perfecto Mobile’s MobileCloud Performance solution to test end user experiences on real local devices with accurate mobile load and network emulation capabilities to complete the end-to-end testing before production.
“As a leading, international news outlet, it is critical that our users have immediate access to our content across our multiple mobile applications and websites where consumption of content is increasing dramatically,” said Ron Kozoman, Head of Mobile Operations at Thomson Reuters. “We are always looking for effective ways to optimize our end user mobile experience, especially as it relates to test load and performance on real mobile devices in real-life conditions. Perfecto's tools and support are a part of our overall optimization arsenal, and these tools have helped us deliver a superior end user experience to our customers."
MobileCloud Performance provides organizations with insights into the business critical aspects of mobile application performance and delivers the following benefits:
- Forecasts the impact of real world conditions on business success criteria with mobile user-facing metrics
- Provides visibility into performance bottlenecks through simulation of real world network conditions by integrating network virtualization technology from Shunra
- Enables improvements to application behavior in production via detailed analysis of network, platform, and device performance-impacting factors like CPU usage, memory consumption, battery drain etc.
- Leverages existing investment in proven performance tools via integrations with top solution vendors
MobileCloud Performance is 100 percent transparent and does not require any instrumentation of the mobile application or device under test. For more information on MobileCloud Performance, click here.
