US based enterprise mobility company Kony and performance analytics service provider Soasta have agreed to integrate their technologies to provide a comprehensive mobile solution across the DevOps lifecycle.
DevOps, a software development method, advocates communication, collaboration, integration, automation and cooperation between software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals.
The Kony-Soasta partnership will facilitate mobile apps built on Kony Mobility Platform to be tested, measured, analysed, and optimised using Soasta’s CloudTest, TouchTest, and mPulse platforms for the creation of an integrated Mobile DevOps solution.
According to Kony, its mobility platform provides support to the entire application software development lifecycle (SDLC), and allows enterprises to design, build, deploy and manage multi-edge app experiences quickly.
The combination of the offerings will provide an expanded and comprehensive mobile DevOps lifecycle support, which includes design prototyping back-end integration, deployment, rapid development, functional test automation, user monitoring, and advanced mobile real-time analytics.
The integration of Kony and Soasta’s offering will provide several new capabilities to their customers including mobile test automation provided by Soasta TouchTest, continuous performance testing at speed and scale through its patented CloudTest, and access to hundreds of mobile devices to test every phase of mobile development.
Its Real User Monitoring (RUM) will provide validation of each user experience in real time.
Soasta CEO Tom Lounibos said: "Enterprise mobile application developers will hugely benefit from the partnership between SOASTA and Kony, with the best end-to-end solution to create apps that will perform at the most optimal level.
"SOASTA customers are committed to providing the highest level of user experience. Now, Kony customers can also rely on the same market-leading performance analytics to optimise their mobile and Web platforms."
