Mobile Labs and Crittercism Partner for Improved App Quality, Performance, and Health

Mobile Labs, LLC, a leading provider of enterprise-grade, next generation mobile testing solutions, today announced it has partnered with Crittercism, a leading mobile application performance management (mAPM) solution to help enterprise organizations thoroughly test mobile applications on real devices, deploy higher quality mobile apps more efficiently, and manage device access and sharing via a private mobile device cloud. Under terms of the agreement, the companies will serve as referral partners.

“Mobile devices and apps are fueling a completely new way of working,” said Mobile Labs President and CEO Don Addington. “As enterprises transition legacy apps to mobile and create completely new mobile line of business apps, employees have an expectation for high quality and phenomenal user experience. IT teams need a new solution set to meet employee demands. Crittercism and Mobile Labs give enterprise IT a holistic view into everything that’s happening with an app and the right tools to address app issues long before deployment. The result is higher quality mobile apps that give employees the power and flexibility to get business done at the speed of mobile.”

Mobile Labs’ deviceConnect™, the private mobile device cloud, provides device access management for instant, remote access to iOS and Android™ smartphones and tablets from anywhere in the world. Installed behind the corporate firewall, deviceConnect is a complete test device management platform that integrates with and extends legacy test automation frameworks to mobile. In addition to managing smartphones and tablets, deviceConnect securely manages mobile apps and associated builds requiring testing and enables granular visibility into every device and mobile operating system managed by and made remotely accessible to development and test teams via the private mobile device cloud. Using deviceConnect, developers, mobile engineers, and testers can select the mobile app requiring test, install it on the right device running the selected mobile OS and perform automated and/or manual functional, regression and performance tests – all from remote locations. The process streamlines mobile testing on real, uncompromised devices, increases collaboration and enables device sharing while eliminating the need to purchase duplicate devices for every tester and/or each testing center.

Crittercism’s mAPM can be used with deviceConnect apps and devices under test to measure mobile app performance in real time along several dimensions – user, app, OS, device, network and API — to help developers and IT teams quickly narrow down the source of performance issues. Enterprise developers, IT operations professionals and product managers can monitor every aspect of mobile app performance so they can deliver faster, better and smarter mobile apps. Crittercism provides global views of app diagnostics across multiple platforms including iOS, Android native apps and Hybrid and HTML5 apps. With Crittercism, IT professionals gain a complete view of all the elements affecting the performance of business-critical applications enabling proactive identification and correction of performance issues before app users are impacted. Crittercism supports all mobile OS versions and is used in tens of thousands of apps across more than one billion monthly active users. Crittercism’s app monitoring capability and Mobile Labs’ app automation capability, when used together, make producing more accurate, more reliable, and better-performing apps easier and more cost-effective.

“As organizations move mission critical functions to a mobile platform, businesses need to know mobile apps are ready for prime time prior to deployment,” said Crittercism CMO Kalyan Ramanathan. “Crittercism ensures high-performance and reliability of enterprise mobile apps while Mobile Labs’ enables comprehensive application testing on real devices securely managed and accessed via the private cloud. We’re excited to work with Mobile Labs to give our joint customers the app intelligence and quality they need to be more competitive and agile than ever.”

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory?

As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

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.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter?

For example, using spot instances and co...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
