Appcelerator and SOASTA Partner to Empower Mobile Enterprise Developers With First Integrated Test Automation Solution

New Integration and Distribution Agreement Bring SOASTA's TouchTest to Appcelerator's Global Enterprise Customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Appcelerator®, the leading mobile development platform, and SOASTA™, the leader in cloud and mobile testing, today announced a new integration between Appcelerator Titanium 3.0 and SOASTA's TouchTest™ mobile test automation solution and a distribution agreement between the two companies.

This integration allows mobile developers at Appcelerator's 1,400 enterprise customers to access TouchTest for continuous automated testing as part of the mobile application development lifecycle. Test automation is a mandatory requirement for mobile app development, and TouchTest delivers the speed, precision and affordability required by mobile development teams to scale their development practices that demand a continuous release process.

TouchTest is the first enterprise test automation solution to support Appcelerator's Titanium 3.0. The integrated solution provides a cost-effective, rapid and continuous product development lifecycle for mobile developers.

"We've adopted mobility as a key enabler to providing productivity enhancing technologies to our nationwide network of contractors and inspectors, in addition to delivering superior quality to our clients," said George Mehok, Chief Information Officer of Safeguard Properties, the largest mortgage field services company in the U.S. "As an innovator in mobility, we're actively implementing the integrated solution between Appcelerator Titanium and SOASTA TouchTest to further optimize the quality of our apps, reduce development cycle time, and accelerate adoption."

The new distribution agreement between Appcelerator and SOASTA enables Appcelerator customers to easily add TouchTest to their mobile development environment. Combining TouchTest with Titanium provides an integrated mobile development and testing environment, and accelerates time to success.

"Mobile is driving much shorter release cycles for application development," said Jeff Haynie, Appcelerator CEO. "SOASTA's TouchTest integration with Appcelerator Titanium 3.0 enables our customers to meet their time-to-market demands while improving overall application quality."

As enterprises and developers build mobile applications for a variety of devices and operating systems, they can now rely on TouchTest to simplify the testing process, utilizing SOASTA's patented visual test environment, precision capture and re-play technology. Apps are now continuously "testable," thoroughly validated and fully supported through the development lifecycle by leveraging TouchTest's embedded Jenkins plugin for 100% hands-free mobile test automation.

"The mobile application lifecycle presents the opportunity for enterprises to re-think their approach to software development," said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA CEO. "Appcelerator and SOASTA recognized this, and have combined our best-of-class solutions to present mobile development teams with the fastest, most complete development platform to support continuous testing of mobile applications."

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
