Perfecto Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™ Platform and integrated mobile application quality suite, today announced the launch of a new offering designed to provide integrated development and testing capabilities of mobile applications to Visual Studio and Microsoft Azure users. To celebrate the launch of this offering, new promotional offers are available for MSDN subscribers.
Perfecto Mobile is working with Microsoft Corp. to bring support for C# test scripts to their platform, enabling developers in Visual Studio to write testing scripts in C# and execute across multiple devices managed by Perfecto Mobile. Perfecto Mobile has also provided seamless integration with Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Online and is working on additional features, including integrating into the build process to automatically provision devices and run tests from a work item, publishing all test results back to Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Online. This functionality is currently available to all users.
“Moving at the speed of mobile poses numerous challenges to Dev/Test teams today, and pressure to improve an application’s velocity without impacting quality is only increasing as the mobile market matures,” said Melinda-Carol Ballou, Program Director, Application Life-Cycle Management & Executive Strategies, IDC. “Support for C# and Microsoft Team Foundation Server enables the extensive network of Microsoft developers to take advantage of the combined capabilities for mobile testing with Perfecto Mobile, leveraging synergy across products.”
Additionally, Windows Phone 8.1 is now fully supported by Perfecto Mobile, including several new Nokia Lumia phones running Windows Phone 8.1 that will be released in the coming months.
“We are proud to work with Microsoft to deliver a widely available solution that provides the highest quality of business-critical mobile apps available,” said Eran Yaniv, CEO, Perfecto Mobile. “This joint offering enables enterprise developers and testers to quickly ramp up mobile activities in their existing visual studio environments, leverage existing investment in tools, people, knowledge and processes and all while meeting the release intervals needed to compete in today’s markets.”
“Today's mobile-first development requires testing across many common devices used by consumers and businesses. To deliver high-quality mobile apps, teams need robust mobile testing solutions that address the complexities of multiplatform development in a fragmented mobile market,” said S. Somasegar, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s Developer Division. “We are excited to announce that these new offerings provide developers with greater access to integrated, familiar and effective mobile device testing features using Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server and Perfecto Mobile’s mobile application quality suite.”
With this offer, MSDN subscribers can access discounts for public cloud manual testing; details are available here. For Microsoft Azure users who are not MSDN subscribers, Perfecto Mobile will be available through the Microsoft Azure Store with discounts available now through the end of 2014.
