Keynote’s partnership with Crittercism reveal improved app quality, performance for digital experience

Keynote, the global leader in digital business optimization, announced a strategic partnership with Crittercism, the leader in mobile App Performance Management. Through this partnership, both companies will co-develop integrations between Keynote’s Mobile Quality and Performance Intelligence Solution and the Crittercism Mobile App Performance Management Platform. Blue Turtle Technologies, as a renowned partner of Keynote in the Southern African region recognises this joint integration as a strategy to actively deliver high quality mobile apps that consistently perform.

As the line between testing and monitoring blurs, this first to market solution from Keynote and Crittercism allows faster mobile app releases and at higher quality. Quality and performance are critical elements of an amazing customer experience. These plus a keen eye for design excellence is mandatory to grow, engage and retain consumers and enterprise employees alike. With a third of mobile app usage lasting less than one minute, an exceptional experience is critical to achieve success in the digital transformation.

The benefits of the integrated Keynote and Crittercism solutions are:

  • Instant identification and prioritization of real customer crashes and exceptions that can be built into the regression testing process.
  • A real-time, correlated view of real and synthetic mobile app performance to continuously measure app and customer journey success after download from an app marketplace.
  • Proactive diagnoses of mobile app performance issues to resolve issues before they impact experience, and ensure consistency in meeting customer expectations.

“With many consumers and employees abandoning low-performing apps in a fraction of a second, the expectation for higher quality experiences delivered by apps that perform is greater than ever,” said Jennifer Tejada, Chief Executive Officer, Keynote.  “Our partnership with Crittercism underscores our joint commitment to help our mutual customers deliver a higher quality, frictionless digital experience to their customers.”

“As apps make the shift to businesses and services, the need for quality becomes ever more important — and the key to achieving an optimal level of performance lies in managing the entire lifecycle of an app,” said Andrew Levy, co-founder and CEO of Crittercism. “Together, Crittercism and Keynote provide an end-to-end solution to ensure a high standard of quality is being maintained from the testing phase of the app all the way to production.”

Enterprises are increasingly relying on mobile applications to engage with customers and employees; as enterprises continue to deploy mobility initiatives, they will require comprehensive solutions to ensure quality of the mobile user experience. “APM space is becoming the primary customer interface for technology-driven products and services on mobile and other environments, and a key channel for driving revenue and brand engagement. Customers will benefit from the best mobile experience through the fast delivery of these high quality apps that are continuously released and monitored in real-time,” said Tommy Erlank, Application Business Manager, Blue Turtle.

“With these joint efforts, Blue Turtle is equally helping to enable parallel development efforts and improve application quality. We believe Keynote made the right decision to integrate their Mobile Quality and Performance Intelligence Solution with the Crittercism Mobile App Performance Management Platform. Offering these kinds of combined capabilities is differentiating and can enable rapid application delivery in the Southern African region.”

Immediate relief for Oracle headaches

Blue Turtle Technologies, the sole Unitask reseller in Africa, provides organisations with the tools to easily manage their Oracle E-Business suite investment to maximise the investment.

Certain aspects of implementing and managing the Oracle E-Business Suite can be risky, time-consuming and resource-intensive.   The challenge is to mitigate the risk and automate the process while reducing expense and effort so that the project will achieve the organisation’s business needs and goals.

One thing is certainly clear; the higher the level of automation is, the lower the operational cost of environments. Analysts found that Oracle E-Business Suite projects took 43% more time and 39% more money than anticipated.

Many deployment and management factors contribute to the costs and delays of these projects.  These factors include:

  • Migrating AOL and other objects:  Object migration is one of the most time-consuming, error-prone and resource-intensive tasks.
  • Migrating other Oracle E-Business suite components:  In addition to AOL objects, administrators, implementers and developers are challenged with efficiently migrating configurations, XML publisher objects, personalisation, custom development, value sets and reports.
  • Enhancing the application:  Aligning the application’s interface, workflow and overall capabilities to meet business objectives consumes substantial development and testing effort.
  • Configuring and managing printers:  Printer management is complicated and costly.
  • Implementing data interfaces:  Error-prone and resource-intensive
  • Communicating with and controlling user activity:   The ability to send users information about the state of the application and, when required, terminate user activity, is vital to enhancing Oracle E-Business Suite administration.
  • Complying with regulations:  Meeting compliance requirements are at the top of almost all IT professionals’ lists.

Unitask’s Migration Director Enterprise for the Oracle E-Business Suite provides the most advanced and cost-effective automated migration software solution available in the world today.  Migration Director solves the tedious, manually intensive and continually error-prone process of migrating objects between instances in today’s advanced Oracle Enterprise.  It dramatically reduces operation burden and ongoing costs while increasing productivity and security immediately.

Automating release processes for Oracle EBS with Unitask’s Migration Director Enterprise eliminates the manual challenges of packaging and deploying changes required between instances of Oracle E-Business Suite.  With a simple “Point-Click-Change” approach, changes are compiled, packaged and ready for migration in minutes, not hours, with no errors, no worries and no delays.  Compile and change with confidence all while remaining safe, secure and compliant.

The solution is flexible and orchestrates multiple instances within one test environment with the ability to run multiple projects in one production environment – saving time, effort and money.

The solution installs directly into the Oracle Instances, therefore no additional hardware, software or security to set up and learn.  Some of the benefits include:

  • ZeroError Migrations eliminates the manual scripting required to migrate.
  • Ensures Integrity – the technology freezes the objects contained in the change package to ensure that the components cannot be modified or changed without recompiling the package.
  • Granular Change Control allows you to control who can migrate, what they can migrate and where they can migrate changes to and from.
  • Enhanced Audit Trail with each change package a detailed report is generated listing all the entities and sub-entities that will be affected by applying this change and provides automated change documentation and reporting.
  • Impact Analysis of the change before it is migrated and applied to a target instance.
  • Ensures compliance
  • Automates manually intensive processes
  • ROI measured in months
  • Integrates seamlessly into Oracle EBS environment
  • Immediately reduces operating burden & costs
