by CXOtoday News Desk    Sep 15, 2016


Hewlett Packard Enterprise [HPE] just announced the availibility of the HPE Mobile Center 2.0, which is a software testing suite, which would help organizations create rapidly, test, and also deliver high-quality mobile applications. To significantly scale the number of devices that are tested, HPE Mobile Center is now integrated with Amazon Web Services Device Farm, a service that helps mobile app developers quickly and securely test their apps on smartphones, tablets, and other devices to improve the quality of their Android and iOS apps.

Saurabh Saxena, Country Director of Software, at HPE India explainedd, “Creating high-quality mobile applications that work seamlessly on every end-user device is a tall order, given the constant proliferation of device types, operating systems, mobile environments, and use cases.”

He added that HPE Mobile Center 2.0 leverages HPE’s unique strengths in machine learning and security to provide developers with deep intelligence that guides them in building high-quality and secure applications. “By integrating with open source tools, we allow developers to leverage these powerful capabilities while operating in the application frameworks and processes of their choice.”

HPE is expanding Mobile Center capabilities to provide users with a predictable and repeatable mechanism for testing, monitoring, and improving any mobile app. The integration with HPE Haven OnDemand and HPE Fortify on Demand provides development teams with powerful capabilities that leverage machine learning from testing data and user feedback to help guide the application development direction, with security built in from the beginning. In addition, developers can use HPE Mobile Center in concert with open source tools (e.g. running Appium tests on iOS with a PC), providing businesses with the freedom to use a wide range of frameworks and processes for building quality applications, quickly.

Marco Argenti, Vice-President of Mobile and IoT, Amazon Web Services, “For mobile app developers, delivering high-quality apps across all of the different device and OS combinations is a major effort – it can be time consuming, complicated, and expensive. And, as new devices continue to enter the market, developers are looking for an easier way to build and test across them – AWS Device Farm meets those business needs,”  before also adding  

“By integrating with AWS Device Farm, HPE Mobile Center enables streamlined dev and test for developers to test the real user experience of their apps across multiple device types at scale,” he said.
