Perfecto Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™ Platform and integrated mobile application quality suite, today announced a new software-only version of its local cloud solution, MobileCloud Express™, that now requires zero hardware to run and easily installs as a mobile application testing environment, complete with industry leading automated testing functionality.
Perfecto Mobile’s local cloud solution, MobileCloud Express, provides users with physical access to mobile devices while also granting access to the same devices via the cloud for manual, automated and continuous integration-based testing through the organization’s LAN network. The solution is fully compatible with Perfecto Mobile’s MobileCloud Platform and provides access to its end-to-end mobile quality management suite.
The scalability of the MobileCloud allows organizations to start at the local level with MobileCloud Express and later migrate existing test scenarios to private and public cloud environments for mobile application testing and monitoring. Enterprise customers can leverage the software-only version of MobileCloud Express to initiate a mobile app testing environment quickly or upgrade their current mobile application testing process. In addition, MobileCloud Express offers organizations a robust yet cost-effective option for centrally managing internal device-based testing environments and delivering secure access from inside the corporate network.
“As the market moves quickly to embrace the speed of app development, customers find they need solutions that can be implemented easily and create the ideal testing environments without adding hardware or taking additional time,” said Roi Carmel, Senior Vice President, Product and Strategy, Perfecto Mobile. “As critical as it is to speed up testing, it is just as essential that solutions stay compatible and have a seamless integration with the tools that the enterprise is currently using. Our new software-only release of MobileCloud Express enables both a quick deployment and setup for a local solution as well as full compatibility to the cloud.”
The new software-only release of MobileCloud Express is fully compatible with Perfecto Mobile’s private and public cloud offering. Users can easily extend their local cloud MobileCloud Express to a full-scale cloud-based device lab. Scripts do not require changes and device management can be fully integrated into one single device lab upon expansion needs. It is also ideal for teams requiring hands-on testing of on-board or connected device features. MobileCloud Express comes pre-integrated with leading ALM tools such as HP Sprinter and UFT, Microsoft TFS and Selenium, enabling enterprises to continue testing with the tools they currently use. Additionally, Agile and DevOps teams can easily connect to the MobileCloud Express environment for a seamless CI workflow with the MobileCloud for Jenkins plugin.
This solution offers the following benefits for enterprises that are looking to quickly access an integrated mobile application quality suite:
- Fast and easy software deployment – Deploy anywhere inside the network and centrally manage remote devices.
- Structured manual testing on real mobile devices – Test on-board mobile features, including camera, GPS, connected hardware and audio support. Record test video and capture screenshots.
- Efficient automated testing – Patented ScriptOnce™ device agnostic test automation enables cross-platform functional testing on real mobile devices.
- Reliable unattended testing – Control the USB connectivity, power cycling and support for fast device charging to enable true 24X7 operations.
