Ship.io Launches Out of Beta: Electric Cloud Announces Commercial Availability of Continuous Delivery as a Service for Mobile Apps

San Jose, CA - April 20, 2015

Growing base of global customers save time and resources by efficiently automating the build/test/deploy process for high quality mobile app delivery

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 20, 2015, Electric Cloud (http://electric-cloud.com/), the leader in enterprise Continuous Delivery and DevOps automation, today announced the commercial availability of Ship.io, a cloud-based Continuous Delivery platform for accelerated mobile app delivery. Ship.io brings the flexibility of the cloud to mobile app Continuous Delivery, by automating the build, test and deployment processes of native iOS and Android apps. It is the first cloud-based platform to support each new version of iOS or Android, along with native integrations to key services in the mobile development tool chain, including Gradle, HockeyApp, Crashlytics Beta, AppThwack and Slack. It provides mobile development teams the most up-to-date solution to streamline and accelerate high-quality mobile application delivery.

Unprecedented growth of the mobile market is constantly shrinking mobile app delivery cycles. Mobile app teams are typically smaller and very agile, but the infrastructure setup and configuration of tools and devices can delay the delivery of quality apps that are increasingly important to organizations of all types and sizes,” said Prathap Dendi, general manager for Ship.io, at Electric Cloud. “Designed from the ground up as a hosted service that easily scales along with today’s ever-changing mobile stacks, Ship.io brings automation and collaboration to every step in the mobile app lifecycle – from code check-in to app store submission.

Ship.io improves the speed and quality of mobile apps by providing end-to-end visibility into the entire app delivery lifecycle and greatly reducing IT infrastructure set-up time and costs through a flexible SaaS delivery model. It is offered through both free and paid SaaS subscription options. For complete information on subscription packages, and to register for the free service option, please visit: (https://ship.io/).

What Customers Say:

Ship.io has helped save our team a ton of time by automatically rebuilding and distributing our iOS application to testers. Setting up new builds is super easy and the HockeyApp integration works great!”Kevin Rohling, Head of Product Emberlight

We want to stay lean and focused on delivering innovative apps faster. That means focusing on writing great code, making use of the right tools to support that. Ship.io enables our global team of developers, testers and product managers to collaborate, shipping quality apps faster.” – Koen Jacobs, Lead iOS Developer, App Annie

Key Capabilities:

Ship.io streamlines the entire mobile app lifecycle process to allow developers to focus on the code and quality of the app, rather than infrastructure needed to support Continuous Integration, testing and Continuous Delivery. It automatically detects and configures native Android and iOS projects to allow teams to build apps across supported OS, version and device screen types. Ship.io supports the latest tool chains, languages and OS releases, including GitHub, Gradle, Xcode 6.3, Swift, iOS 8, Crashlytics Beta, HockeyApp, as well as Slack, HipChat and various web hook integrations. It connects existing tool chains to simplify and automate unit, functional and physical device testing (using AppThwack for iOS devices), and allows teams to run tests every time code is committed for fast feedback. Centralized dashboards provide visibility into all build, test and deployment status levels, and supports cross-team collaboration and historical reporting.

Electric Cloud addresses the need to automate the build/test/deploy lifecycle to help organizations release quality software faster, at scale and with high predictability. In addition to Ship.io for mobile apps, its ElectricFlow platform provides enterprise-grade DevOps automation, from build through to deployment. Its flagship ElectricAccelerator helps speed build and test cycles within highly complex software environments by up to 20 times. Global customers in embedded systems, automotive, mobile, financial services and Internet-of-Things industries work with Electric Cloud to improve software time to market, infrastructure utilization and developer productivity.
