HP pushes social collaboration dev tools for mobile

Got a smartphone? Then you're still at work

Reducing security risks from open source software

HP has announced a raft of products and services aimed at speeding up application-development lifecycles, with an emphasis on mobile and cloud code.

The company is looking to use the tools provided by social media to allow better collaboration within teams, and has added features designed to appeal to mobile application developers and to cut the development lifecycle to days rather than months.

"Modern enterprise applications require a different approach to design and testing than traditional applications," said Jonathan Rende, vice president and general manager of application transformation solutions and software at HP, in a statement. "HP ensures that enterprise applications provide the highest level of quality, availability and scalability while elevating the user experience to an entirely new level."

On the social side, HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence (ALI) now uses social-media methods to track who is working on each stage of a software development project and what input they have had. Meanwhile, its Enterprise Collaboration suite allows real-time conversations on code, and links them to action items.

For mobility, HP has teamed up with Perfecto Mobile to speed up smartphone application development by allowing automated testing for multiple handset types. There's also a new module for grabbing on-the-fly data on SAP Netweaver and Sybase Unwired platforms.

HP Anywhere has also been updated to allow mobile phone users access to defect tracking and service health monitoring, ensuring that as long as you've got your mobile you can still get some work done – and scored on an executive scorecard. ®
