Perfecto 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 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 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, 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 on real devices, mobile-ready continuous integration and test automation,” said Eran Yaniv, CEO, Perfecto Mobile. “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 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.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
