Perfecto Mobile Raises $20 Million in Growth Equity Funding to Accelerate Cloud-Based Mobile Application Quality Services

Perfecto Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™ Platform and integrated mobile application quality suite, today announced it has raised a $20 million growth equity investment from new investor FTV Capital, with continued participation from existing investors Carmel, Vertex and Globespan Capital Partners. The latest capital infusion will be used to further fuel Perfecto Mobile’s record growth and continued market leadership in the rapidly emerging mobile application quality space.

“Perfecto Mobile’s strong leadership and executive vision coupled with its innovative technology has enabled it to become the de facto leader in the growing $9 billion mobile app quality market,” said Liron Gitig, FTV Capital partner and new Perfecto Mobile board member. “Many of the world’s leading financial institutions in FTV’s Global Partner Network validated the immense pain point that mobile application quality has become and confirmed the significance of Perfecto Mobile’s solution and leadership position. We are excited to partner with Perfecto Mobile in this next phase of development and growth.”

Coming off the Company’s most successful quarter and fourth consecutive year of over 100 percent revenue growth, Perfecto Mobile has reached a number of recent milestones. More than 100 Fortune 1000 enterprise customers have selected Perfecto Mobile as their solution to deliver quality mobile applications, spanning the financial, healthcare, retail and travel industries, and including leading brands Weight Watchers, CA, Cigna, EMC and Prudential. In addition, Perfecto Mobile has extended its reach with full support to the LATAM, APAC and EU markets.

“The need for a mobile app quality strategy is imperative because most enterprises’ reputations today are highly dependent on effective mobile apps,” said Melinda-Carol Ballou, Program Director, Application Life-Cycle Management & Executive Strategies, IDC. “This need is creating a fast-growing market for solutions that directly address mobile app quality. The goal of speeding up app delivery without compromising quality across today’s wide range of dynamically changing devices requires mobile app quality platforms that enable distributed teams to share real devices, run cross-platform automated tests and integrate into their existing SDLC tools and workflow, like Perfecto Mobile's approach.”

“The mobile app market is booming as consumers and enterprise employees depend on high-quality, transactional mobile apps to optimize business performance, increase productivity and better their lives,” said Eran Yaniv, CEO of Perfecto Mobile. “First impressions are critical for the success of these apps and companies are focusing on quality from the beginning to ensure a great user experience. Perfecto Mobile is proven to be essential in helping our customers and partners surpass their end users’ quality expectations. Our growth, combined with the support of our new and existing investors, solidifies our SaaS-based value proposition and the leadership that we bring to the market.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
