Mobile Labs will host demos of its private device cloud, deviceConnect™ leveraging Jenkins. deviceConnect brings order to the chaos of mobile testing and device sharing.

The hosted solution features the same deviceConnect software and 24/7 access to mobile devices, but instead of being stored on-premise, the dedicated devices are managed in a secure data center by Mobile Labs’ experts. deviceConnect is tool-agnostic, enabling users to implement their favorite commercial or open source tools, such as Jenkins, for mobile testing and continuous delivery. Attendees are invited to visit the Mobile Labs booth (#603) and to attend a presentation, The World of Mobile Continuous Delivery Using Jenkins, on Wednesday, August 30th at 1:45 p.m. PT.

XebiaLabs, the recognized leader in enterprise-class DevOps and continuous delivery software tools, today announced expanded dual-mode DevOps capabilities in its XebiaLabs DevOps Platform version 7.1. Many core DevOps tools are designed for developers, but a purely technical design doesn’t meet the needs of large enterprises scaling DevOps across hundreds of teams and thousands of users. Enterprises need a strong DevOps orchestration and automation platform to provide control, visibility, decision support, reporting, compliance and security, which are often lacking in developer-oriented DevOps point tools. XebiaLabs’ new “as code” features work concurrently with the company’s highly acclaimed graphical user interface for release orchestration and deployment automation, allowing users to choose their preferred mode of operation.
