New release delivers network performance testing to provide unrivaled real-world user experience visibility and keyword-based testing to provide a unique approach to collaborative testing
To meet the demands of today’s mobile workforce, enterprise organizations continue to make their applications remotely available for employee access through a virtual private network (VPN). Typically, these internal applications that often underpin and run a business are difficult to load test because they sit behind the company firewall. To address this challenge, Borland, a Micro Focus company (LSE: MCRO.L), today announced updates to the Borland Silk Portfolio - a comprehensive set of quality and performance tools for desktop, web, cloud and mobile – which includes cloud-based load testing for internal applications.
Building on a proven technology foundation set, the Silk Portfolio updates also include automatic detection and suggested resolutions to optimize slow web pages via Google PageSpeed integration with Silk Performer.
To solve the complex challenge of keeping pace with an ever growing variety of browsers and devices, Silk Central Connect has introduced new features to deliver true cross browser testing across web and mobile web applications. This release extends support to include Safari on iOS, meaning Silk Central Connect now provides cover for over 95% of all market browsers. Borland customers can also embrace HTML5, web and mobile development and quickly test across a variety of platforms without costly hardware or configuration set ups. With pre-configured Amazon images that support Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, Silk Central Connect initializes the configurations and executes the tests for fast and easy cross browser configuration testing.
To address the challenge of cloud-to-cloud based application performance testing, Silk Performer CloudBurst has extended its support to include Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure in addition to Amazon Web Services. Now customers have a choice of providers and can ensure performance and a smooth customer experience across both platforms.
“Borland’s mission is to help customers validate quality across any device and any application running on any infrastructure. In today’s era of consumer choice, quality is much more than just functionality. It involves validating that applications work, perform, have a strong user experience, and ultimately fulfil the strategic needs of the end customer,” said Archie Roboostoff, Borland Solutions Portfolio Director at Micro Focus. “The latest updates to our portfolio continue to address the new notion of quality while eliminating the pains our customers feel as they struggle to keep pace with continuous market challenges and end user demands.”
