HP has expanded its HP Mobile Application Services portfolio for mobile application development and delivery. The firm now introduces HP Testing for Mobility and HP Enterprise Mobility Services for SAP Applications.
The new developer-aligned services use automation intelligence from HP Software and Perfecto Mobile, a provider of cloud-based testing, automation, and monitoring solutions for mobile applications and websites. These solutions enable automated test cases to be executed against a range of real devices, in real locations, across real carrier networks.
HP is also unveiling new versions of the products within its HP Application Lifecycle Management portfolio. The new software offerings help enterprises improve planning and development, shrink testing costs, and speed the delivery of applications while continuously reducing potential business disruptions.
To help improve continuous performance testing for capacity, scalability, and reliability, HP is introducing HP LoadRunner 12 and HP Performance Center 12 with new testing capabilities designed to help cloud developers scale performance-testing resources on flexible cloud platforms based on business and geographic demands.
These tools are also intended to shrink overhead through an integrated management environment that automates provisioning of load generators in the cloud across geographically dispersed teams while maintaining security and control.
HP also claims to be able to reduce business disruptions by focusing testing efforts and improving test results with enhanced DevOps capabilities for an end-to-end performance application lifecycle. This is achieved through continuous integration with developer tools such as Jenkins and integration with production monitoring tools such as Google Analytics.
"Mobility and cloud challenge organizations to balance time-to-market demands while delivering engaging user experiences that separate them from the competition," said Bernd Schlotter, senior vice president, application delivery management, Software, HP. "By integrating performance and functional testing capabilities earlier into the application lifecycle, HP empowers organizations to deliver the innovative mobile, cloud, and hybrid software applications that are the engines of business growth with unprecedented velocity and uncompromised quality."
