- 02 April, 2015 09:54
Hewlett Packard has released a raft of new software which uses Big Data to leverage a company's applications.
The Big Data releases are designed to help organisations deliver mobile applications that "delight" customers and score 5-star ratings.
According to a company statement, the innovations harness HP’s assets in big data analytics, application lifecycle management, IT operations management and security to enable organisations to accelerate the delivery of every phase of the mobile app lifecycle, from creation and pre-production, to delivery and post-production management.
SpeechTrans chief operations officer, Yan Auerbach, said HP allowed his company to take big data and make it actionable.
"So we can deliver exceptional user experiences on our mobile speech translator app,” he said.
“Previously, it took us up to three weeks to fix an app issue and now we can address any problem in less than 2 days.
"Leveraging HP software has enabled us to achieve consistent 5-star ratings in mobile app stores – a key driver of new customers and revenue.”
The new innovations are designed to address challenges of managing a company's apps by combining its assets in application development testing, monitoring and systems management with HP Haven analytics, HP security software, and SaaS-based interfaces.
Together, these capabilities result in solutions that help make designing, delivering, and managing mobile applications an intuitive, collaborative and fun process.
Businesses can use the software to accelerate application delivery, test and monitor apps across multiple devices and operating systems, and provide mobile users with exceptional and secure experiences.
It has also released a new offering that leverages the HP Haven Big Data platform to allow businesses to gain visibility into the health of their mobile apps and measure overall user experience.
HP App Pulse Mobile constantly monitors and analyses performance, stability and resource usage on mobile apps.
The tool provides a “FunDex” score that gives a top-level view of problems that negatively impact the user experience with recommendations to explore and fix the root cause of each issue.
The new portfolio includes an enhanced version of Application Lifecycle Management, new updates to its mobile testing software, a new version of HP Mobile Center speeds, a new version of HP Network Virtualisation, a new version of HP Service Virtualization and updates to HP’s Cloud-based load testing service through HP StormRunner Load.
HP general manager, HP Software, Branko Bugarski, said businesses that point solutions fall short in helping them quickly create and deliver amazing mobile experiences that are secure, high-performing, and beautiful.
“HP is uniquely positioned to lead in the mobile market by bringing together our proven assets in application development, operations management, security, and big data to help businesses deliver winning mobile apps that delight customers and positively impact their brand, revenue, and market share,” he said.
This portfolio is available now worldwide.
