Perfecto Intros Development Tools
February 14, 2017
introduced new tools designed for developers and development teams that
accelerate the web and mobile app development process through faster
debugging and troubleshooting. Powered by Perfecto's on-demand,
cloud-based Continuous Quality Lab, the new tools provide fast feedback
to mobile and web developers and development teams. The tools allow
developers to obtain real-world feedback early in their development
process, identify and fix platform-specific bugs, and streamline
continuous integration (CI) within their DevOps delivery pipeline.
A recent trend in mobile and web development shows 25% of time is spent
addressing a bug fix backlog, which slows down the velocity of releases
and prohibits the innovation of new features that draw in users and
According to a recent Forrester report, in order to build the right
software better and faster, automated testing along the delivery
pipeline is needed for continuous visibility into software releasability.
By automating the delivery pipeline, teams can test software from the
moment it's committed, reducing release risk and business uncertainty.*
This effort can be minimized with fast feedback, improved mapping of
target coverage areas and the ability to embed automated quality
practices throughout the entire SDLC, from development to testing to
production. Mobile app and web developers can use Perfecto's new tools
to support these practices and in turn improve the quality of their
code, increase time to market and reduce risks to the user experience in
Perfecto's new developer tools make high-velocity development possible.
Key features and benefits include:
•Injection of quality across
development, QA and ops processes - Teams can integrate unit,
exploratory and automated testing directly into their IDE of choice for
mobile or web.
•Full support for native mobile testing frameworks - Espresso (Android)
and XCTest (iOS), enables developers to receive early feedback from CI
builds over a wide range of platforms, environments and real user
•Improved visibility into bugs - Perfecto's DigitalZoom reporting
provides cross-platform visibility and allows teams to track quality
trends, analyze platform-specific issues and collaborate on test results
for faster fixes.
•Accelerated debugging - Perfecto's DevTunnel accelerates debugging and
troubleshooting in development cycles by providing instant access to a
variety of real cloud-based devices, browsers and user environments from
within your IDE of choice, leveraging your debugger of choice.
"In today's digital era, velocity of the application delivery pipeline
is a key success metric for software executives," said Roi Carmel, Chief
Strategy Officer at Perfecto. "With this release, our goal is to empower
mobile app and web developers to build a better delivery pipeline with
an on-demand quality lab that supports high levels of test automation,
and is integrated directly into their preferred coding environments,
making it easier to gain reliable feedback, speed up build cycles and
accelerate feature delivery."
Perfecto's developer tools are available with an additional license.
