In-Q-Tel and Apkudo have formed a strategic alliance to bring the latter’s mobile device and application testing technology to the U.S. federal market.
Apkudo is developing a platform designed to help mobile device operators test apps in different simulated environments, IQT said Wednesday.
“Just like the private sector, use of mobile devices and applications in the federal government is expanding and our customers need to understand how end users will interact with their technology,“ said Jay Emmanuel, senior vice president for IQT’s mobility practice.
Emmanuel believes the Apkudo technology would make the process of vetting mobile tools faster and easier for government agencies.
“Apkudo Approved testing automates this process, utilizing actual subscriber usage scenarios to uncover any issues so they may be corrected before being launched to customers,” Apkudo CEO Josh Matthews added.
The company uses a combined hardware and software infrastructure to automate evaluation of multiple devices and apps.
