SAN MATEO, Calif.--()--Keynote® (NASDAQ: KEYN), the global leader in Internet and mobile cloud testing & monitoring, today announced expanded integration of Keynote MITE with the leading automated functional testing platform – Unified Functional Testing (UFT), an HP product. Specifically, Keynote has introduced MITE Enterprise for UFT – a new product that brings the built-in MITE library of over 2,200 emulated devices into the UFT testing environment, greatly improving the efficiency for executing test cases run by mobile Web developers. Keynote is also announcing the general availability and official certification of its leading real device testing platform DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for UFT for both mobile web and native application testing; click here to read more.

As part of the overall mobile lifecycle, browser-based emulators have an important role to play in the testing of mobile websites. The goal for emulated mobile testing is that it be easy, fast, and have the capability to test performance across a diverse range of browsers and operating systems. In addition, emulated mobile testing must provide deep diagnostic information on performance, as well as functionality, enabling QA to provide development with the information needed to optimize their mobile websites.

MITE Enterprise for UFT delivers on all these goals. Mobile developers will enjoy accurate and easy device emulation not seen with other browser-based user agent switching solutions. Mobile developers can record a single UFT script on any mobile device profile and then play it back across all required emulated smartphones, feature phones and tablets to assure that the mobile website is optimized for any mobile device.

Just as important is real device testing of the functionality of any mobile website or native app in a real-world environment. With DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for UFT developers have access to real mobile devices directly from within the existing UFT interface. Any company currently using ALM (application lifecycle management) testing tools, including UFT, will have the ability to control, interact with, and execute both manual and automated tests on real mobile devices in the DeviceAnywhere test environment.

This powerful capability relieves users already familiar with UFT from the time and effort of learning a new scripting language. With the new MITE Enterprise for UFT Add-in along with the DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for UFT Add-in, now developers and QA departments around the world can perform any test on real and emulated devices, all from within the leading automated testing platform – Unified Functional Testing.

“We see a continuously increasing emphasis on enterprise mobility. Leveraging existing resources are the only way to efficiently allocate time, energy and resources for QA engineers,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote. “MITE Enterprise for UFT augments our existing real device mobile testing platform to include our expansive emulated device library. Both DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for UFT and MITE Enterprise for UFT easily integrate into existing functional testing and ALM environments, allowing organizations to perform accurate manual and automated testing on real and emulated mobile devices. Our integrated test creation and execution solutions significantly extend the reach of UFT in the area of mobile testing.”

MITE Enterprise for UFT Benefits:

  • Simplified script recording – Easy point-and-click recording to script any mobile Web test case.
  • Built-in device library – Provides users access to more than 2,200 emulated device profiles within the UFT environment.
  • Playback on multiple devices – Allows users to select the devices that are important for their test case, and generate results for multiple profiles at once.
  • Quick results and reporting – Get results without leaving UFT. Once a test is run, results can be viewed for all devices within the familiar UFT dashboard.

MITE Enterprise for UFT is currently beta and will be generally available soon. If you wish to join the beta program click here. DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for UFT is now generally available. You can request a personalized demo here.

Keynote will be showcasing its new integration of MITE Enterprise for UFT and DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for UFT at the HP Discover Conference in Las Vegas, NV from June 11- 13, 2013, Booth #3956 in the main exhibition hall.
