Our new name Appvance reflects how impactful our platform is in advancing the quality of social/mobile apps for our clients

PushToTest Inc., maker of the world's most used app performance and validation platform, today announced it has become Appvance Inc. The company will continue to focus on helping enterprise customers improve app performance under stress and load.

"Appvance is being launched on a foundation of 10 years of work with developers and large corporations such as Best Buy, PepsiCo and Deloitte into a standard methodology that works for any organization while they build apps, deliver apps, and as their apps go viral,” said Kevin Surace, Appvance CEO. “Our growing enterprise customer base requires world-class app validation and top-notch support. To reflect this focus, we have also named our enterprise-class offering ‘Appvance Enterprise.’"

“I am delighted with our continued growth as our customers depend on Appvance solutions to achieve 5-star app ratings by doing more than just testing for performance,” said Frank Cohen, Appvance founder and CTO. “Modern apps run from distributed cache environments like Akamai, connect to dozens of unrelated Web services, and present risk to your brand when the app's end-user experience fails to meet expectations. Only Appvance gives business managers and their IT teams a way to stay ahead of performance changes as app usage increases across all platforms.”

Appvance is much more than simple performance evaluation. Appvance delivers app development and deployment methodology, techniques, and platforms to apply to each type of app (Web apps, Ajax, Social/Mobile apps, SOA, Web services using SOAP/REST, and BPM/ESB), a methodology to evaluate business risk and efficiency while automating the orchestration of treat tests (test code, scripts, deployment) as code and use version control to control and share test assets, a means to repurpose a single test for functional tests, load and performance testing, and production monitors, and an Agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) methodology for modern app development to deliver test management to geographically distributed teams.
