Shunra Software and Sogeti jointly announce the launch of the Sogeti Performance Efficiency Test Solution, a mobile application testing service available at the Sogeti Test Labs. Shunra Software is an industry-recognized authority in network virtualization and application performance engineering. Sogeti, part of the Capgemini Group, is a leading provider of professional technology services specializing in Application Management, Infrastructure Management, High-Tech Engineering and Testing.
This Performance Efficiency Test Solution will enable companies wanting to qualify the network performance of their mobile applications to gain a better understanding of how their mobile app will perform under real-world network conditions and in specific geographic locations, by using Shunra’s state-of-the-art application performance engineering capabilities and Sogeti’s senior mobile application testing expertise.
“Mobile is undeniably a great enabler for businesses,” said Bill Varga, Shunra COO. “But, it is also one of businesses’ biggest challenges. With almost infinite variations of geography and network conditions, testing mobile apps can be complex and time consuming. The Performance Efficiency Test Solution now allows companies to take geographically-specific real-world network conditions into account while performance testing their mobile apps with Sogeti’s industry-leading test teams.”
Once a mobile application is submitted to Sogeti’s mobile testing lab, the app is performance tested with Shunra’s vCat and mobile hotspot feature. The test establishes a baseline of application performance across a WiFi network and compares that performance to a typical 3G mobile network connection in the specified geographic location. For each of these networks, a detailed report provides:
— Initial connection time
— Content download time
— Content upload time
— Customized performance optimization recommendations
“Proactively testing applications, prior to deployment, is essential to mitigating costly performance risk,” said Jean-Pascal Duniau, Mobile Application Testing Services, Manager Sogeti High Tech. “Sogeti’s performance experts, combined with Shunra’s leading technology, offer our customers unprecedented insight into performance before application roll-out, equipping them to make informed decisions on how to optimize and ensure a positive end-user experience.”
Shunra’s partnership with Sogeti and Capgemini represents a service delivery integration point as part of Shunra’s existing mobile performance platform. With this integration point, and other Shunra partnerships regarding mobile load and functional testing, Shunra promotes an end-to-end framework incorporating industry leadership and best practices focused on mobile application performance. Sogeti High Tech, which is providing the testing services initially from its Mobile Application Testing Center of Excellence in Grenoble, France, specializes in reducing the risk of application failures, while cutting development and maintenance costs and improving time-to-market for application projects.
“Because of Sogeti’s recognized leadership in application testing services, this partnership represents a natural synergy between two companies committed to proactively improving application performance and quality of user experience,” stated Varga.
