Designed for enterprise development and test teams, the web-based management console lets you remotely build, manage, track and monitor your testing assets by individual device name, manufacturer, model number, OS version, availability, and more. Managed and accessed remotely, or ready for hands-on testing, dedicated iOS and Android test devices inside your secure firewall become private device clouds accessible by your team anywhere, anytime.

This complete end-to-end mobile test automation solution includes SOASTA’s industry-leading TouchTest mobile test automation or TouchTest UFT Integration to leverage legacy Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools. The TouchTest Private Device Cloud comes preconfigured with 10 dedicated devices of your choosing at a price of $130,000 per year.

“Enterprise mobile development and escalating business demand for mobile apps have driven the need to utilize real mobile devices as part of a comprehensive testing strategy, but managing those devices is cumbersome,” said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC's Application Lifecycle Management and Executive Strategies service. “The ability to run test automation on real devices in a private, hybrid and/or public cloud, can offer test and development teams more reliable and effective approaches to faster testing and broader coverage.”

TouchTest Private Device Clouds are just one of several innovative Test solutions from SOASTA. TouchTest, joins SOASTA’s industry leading cloud-based load and performance test platform, CloudTest, which has forever changed how mobile and web apps are tested.

IT leaders face a monumental challenge. They must figure out how to sort through the cacophony of new technologies, buzzwords, and industry hype to find the right digital path forward for their organizations. And they simply cannot afford to fail. Those organizations that are fastest to the right digital path will be the ones that win. The path forward, however, is strewn with the legacy of decisions made long ago — often before any of the current leadership team assumed their roles. While it’s ...
As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Logs are continuous digital records of events generated by all components of your software stack – and they’re everywhere – your networks, servers, applications, containers and cloud infrastructure just to name a few. The data logs provide are like an X-ray for your IT infrastructure. Without logs, this lack of visibility creates operational challenges for managing modern applications that drive today’s digital businesses.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
