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 – January 24, 2013 – 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.”
